Praise for Pardew

It’s been just 16 months since Alan Pardew walked into that St James’ Park hotseat, and what a 16 months it has been!

A lot of people will remember that his appearance at United following the dismissal of the popular Chris Hughton was hardly greeted warmly. In fact some people still hold that particular viewpoint, which is staggering really when you look at the Premier League table.

Naturally a win in his opening game helped to ease the tension. A 3-1 victory over Liverpool was just the medicine the Toon Army needed to avoid one of those downward spirals of our own making and eased any unrest that was simmering beneath the surface, at least temporarily anyway.

Sales of players like Andy Carroll, Kevin Nolan, Joey Barton and Jose Enrique didn’t help either. With suspicion rife a lot of fans were left wondering just what the motives of the former Reading, West Ham, Charlton and Southampton manager were. Was he here to assist Mike Ashley more than anything else?

Fast forward to the present day and what do we have? A team guaranteed to be in Europe with the possibility of even making the Champions League. A best league finish since the days of Sir Bobby Robson and a team that is starting to show real attacking intent and flair.

It’s folly to suggest that every bit of success has been a tactical masterstroke. There are times when we have been lucky and times that we have been awful, which I’ll point out now is no different to what any other Premier League team goes through during the course of the season.

There are also times that we’ve been sublime and have pulled of tactical masterstrokes. I remember Blackburn away where we were being outplayed. A quick shuffle of the pack for the second half and we ended up being comfortable winners. Stoke away was another example, especially Danny Simpson and his towel routine which is the kind of fine detail that can influence a game – notice the reaction from the Stoke players and manager, who collectively were rather irate about it all.

The key thing for me though in the success story so far that has been Alan Pardew’s appointment, has been the motivational aspect of his tenure. Quite simply it’s been exceptional. It takes more than whispering “well done” in the ear of a player to make them feel happy. All you have to do is look towards the squad players, like James Perch and see the improvement in those to see that motivation does work.

He’s quick to praise players and will shoulder the blame when needed. A look back at the 5-0 loss at Tottenham will confirm that. Rather than condemn the players for basic defensive errors he instead came out and said that the blame should be laid at his own door, thus lifting any real pressure off of the shoulders of the players.

It’s that kind of thing that has served us well so far this season and has given the players the belief to perform so well. It helps that we have quality players of course, but as we’ve seen first hand, just because we have quality players it doesn’t necessarily mean that they will play like a quality team.

That is down to the manager!

    Off topic, but who do people see as irreplaceable over summer?

    Of those who are possibilities for big bids – Krul, Ba, Ben Arfa, Tiote, Cabaye – I’ve now got to say Ben Arfa and maybe Krul!

    That’s not making light of Cabaye, Ba and Tiote’s contributions this season, but there really is no one of Benny’s raw talent who sits in our price range. And Krul has won us so many points this season…

    The other 3 would be VERY HARD to replace, but think Carr would have a better chance of replacing them than Benny or Timmy! Thoughts?

    On topic, think Pards is growing into the role. Tactics are *generally* spot-on (with the occasional howler), but he really seems to have the motivational side of the job down!

    GeordieTwo says:

    My hat is off to Pardew. A fantastic job this season. I don’t even have the heart to go after Llambias any more. Shows how much things have changed. My only fear now is injuries, especially at the back. When I compare this team to the one that was relegated I just shake my head. Put Owen up against Cisse or Martins against Ba or Duff versus Ben Arfa. No comparison at all. Owen was a wanker and Martins a waster. Where is Owen now? Martins could have been great but wasted his talent. Duff is good enough for Fulham but that’s about it.

    Rodzilla says:

    …well wanted to see an image of Mr Motivator for this story :sad:

    In answer, I think it’s a bit of both to be honest. He’s a very charismatic geeza; straight-talking, open and honest. The players love him, as well as most fans’ Mams.

    Winning over the dressing room, and keeping a cap on egos is half the job (well, maybe not mathematically).

    Stuart79 says:

    This is not rocket science – good, technically gifted players with pace cause the opposition problems. At the minute I believe we have potentially the most dangerous attacking threats in the league all in one team. Cabaye, Jonas, HBA, Ba and Cisse. They take some beating as an attacking threat! It could even be improved as I’m sure Marvauex would do a better job on the left than Ba. I’m not criticising Ba before anyone starts, he still does a fantastic job but it’s natural for a actual winger to do a better job.

  6. 6
    The Kid says:

    Pardew is a fantastic manager. He is tactically astute and always prepares well for each game. He respects every opponent.

  7. 7
    The Kid says:


    Spot on. Ba is superb, but he’s no winger. Marveaux is quality and he will add a lot if he features in our last four games

    Big Dave says:

    Toonsy I would agree with you I said all along that I thought he was a good man manager which to me is a very important factor.
    as for being good tactically it was only a while back there was lots of people saying that he was tactically inept :???:

    stevep says:

    I think you’ll find that Ba, Cisse and HBA constantly change positions – watch the last few games again and you’ll see it

    GeordieDan says:

    “Master of tactics or master of motivation?”

    A little from column A and a little from column B I think.

    Pardew in my humble opinion is a very decent tactician and has showed that in abundance the way he has made both his 4-4-2 and 4-3-3 formations equally effective in the 1st and 2nd halves of the seasons.

    Some of his substitutions have been superb and recently to balance out our team in edgy moments of matches.

    His man-management is arguably an even better asset of his. Pardew has been a phenomenon so far and if we had of brought in Jose Mourino or Fergie I doubt 100% that either would have got us into 4th at this stage of the season.

    It is simply an outstanding achievement and he should be very proud of himself as we are of him and the team.

    I’m still pinching myself that we’re in Europe again! :shock: :lol:

    NUFC heaven for me!!!!!

    Axel says:

    I think he is so good at both motivation and tactics that he will be the manager that finally brings home a trophy . The bloke is a god send , i still hold Hughton in high esteem for what he did for us but Pardew is without a doubt the best manager since Sir Bobby and the first i truly believe will make us winners of something.

    Stuart79 says:

    Stevep – What’s your point? Ba is more often than not on the left, which isn’t his natural position but hey we’re winning so I’d keep it. But that doesn’t alter the fact he’s not a winger, neither is Cisse, so even if they change we’d have a player who isn’t natural in that position.

    G2….that’s a bit of a myth ref Stoke, they are on exactly the same points this season that they were on at this stage last, Fulham who got in via the fairplay are actually better of points wise this season than they were at the same stage last season ;-)

    Jon R says:

    BLIP@1: I’d agree with you on Krul and Ben Arfa. I think Tiote is replaceable, and we have actually done it this season. He’s missed loads of games and we’ve managed fine. If we have to sell one, he’d be the one i’d go for, but I wouldn’t take less than £20m.

    RE Pardew, I think his motivational skills slightly out-do his tactical skills, but only just. I think some credit has to go to the scouts too, as we seem to pick players who will fit well into the group, but the spirit he’s instilled is fantastic. He also seems to be learning well from his tactical mistakes so in a couple of seasons he’ll have it down.

    sidekick says:

    Pardew might not be the best manager we have had but he is certainly the best coach.

    Who else could have transformed Williamson and Perch into premier league defenders ?
    Santon , who was a sensation at 18 , was struggling to get a game two years later. With Pardew , Santon is beginning to recover his best form and I can see him becoming the best full back in the premiership.

    He’s even getting great cameo performances out of Shola :shock:

    Actually I have a feeling its Swansea! :shock:

    @ big Dave

    I see Stardust was slagging you off on the last thread for being anti Ashley in the early years.

    Like me, you were right to be vocal at Ashley’s actions.

    However, Stardust fails to mention his vocal disdain shown towards Pardew when he was brought in to replace Hughton.

    Shame on you Stardust! You repulse me! :shock:

    We have missed Tiote big time. Five goals at Fulham Five at Tottenham Four at Norwich when he wasn’t playing tells me something. The press and tv rave about Parker. Tiote is ten times better. Jabba and Del will sell though but my advice is don’t do it for less than £25 million. Tiote is the best defensive midfielder in the premier league

    As a spurs fan I have got to congratulate you guys and your team, I was on here after the 5-0 saying that I didnt like Danny Simpson but other than that you have a great team and it was a freak result.

    I have been proven right, I hope you guys get 4th, Spurs dont deserve it and the stupid ignorant twat of a manager Harry Redknapp has ruined us and will sink us before becoming the England manager.

    I know it sounds stupid considering we are back to 4th if we win and you lose on the weekend but honestly we are shot to pieces and I hope you use that 4 point lead over Chelsea to cement your place…..

    God knows what you will sign in the summer with the lure of champions league football and team of scouting geniuses

    Jon R says:

    Toby – You’re right on those but I don’t see how you can just pin it on Tiote missing. The Norwich game was all about our defense being in tatters after the Chelsea match. We also conceded 3 against WBA and 3 against Liverpool with Tiote in the side. And we drew at Old Trafford without Tiote, and have won 3 of our last 6 games without Tiote.

  61. 61

    GeordieTwo says:

    Great to see Collo in the PFA Team of the Year. Ok lads as far as Stoke is concerned they have similar points but I still think all the qualifying games early in the season had a big effect on their season. I don’t think they will be relegated next year, they have too much for that. Like it or not I have to admire Crouch. Very good around goal. Stoke need a midfielder or 2 to get into the top 10 but that’s about all they could manage. We compete at a different level now. Nice to see Santon, Gosling, and Perch improving and Pardew’s confidence in them has payed off. I would like to see a taller, faster player at right back to really complement Ben Arfa. Simpson has been ok but we need better to improve. For me the same goes for Willo but we play such an organized defensive game that he is well protected. Saylor will bring more to the team next season than Willo but we should still look for a big horse for the CB position.

    Think the biggest attribute of management (including coaches and the untrustworthy looking CEO fella) is organization.

    Your avatar is feckin’ butters, mate ;)

    Pardew is an absolute class act. He looks the part, acts the part, plays the part, and sees to it that his team is up for every match. I love the refusal to get carried away and simply take each game as it comes. The most important match of the season is always the next match. Pards knows this, and so do the lads. Long may it continue!!

    Btw Troy-

    Since England and the continent are separated by the Channel, does that mean that you’ll now be buying a “reality boat” too? If so, may I book passage? ;)

    Pards is a mixture of both, has to be, was taught everything he knows by me rel Keith as he mentions in his LMA inteview lol

    But from what I’ve heard, as well as being a good tactician, he can make a poor player seem like the best in the world as he takes the pitch. Think we have struck lucky getting him. Wasn’t 100% to start with when he came in, knew he was good, but didn’t think he could do what he has done

  82. 82
    Carter says:

    I remember AP first game in charge when he ran into his BUNKER to take charge of his first game. After all the big name Managers that have been peraded on the pitch with so much expectaion it just goes to show that maybe hard graft is more important than reputation. Me thinks that AP is out to prove a point and good for him.

    p.s. decent tactician, great man manager/motivator and a dam decent chap.

    Dubtoon says:

    Carter – I think that’s a big part of the recruitment policy that ap/dl/gc/lc work on. Work ethic often relates to a type of character that has been successful for us. Builds a team spirit, positive environment an helps foreign players settle. And like any good plan it has allowances for exceptional circumstances like hba

    Carter says:

    I he ain’t done a lot wrong. I feel he has some of keegans qualities but is a much better tactician. Keegan also got the best out of all his players just lacked on the tactics. If AP was in charge when we were 12 points clear at the top of the league I don’t think he would of blown it.

    …aye, big difference between standing on the sidelines in a fucking tracksuit and baseball cap (err Pulis, Dalglish and any other tramp). As much as I’m not a ‘suit’ myself, you should, as a manager display respect to the club through formal attire on the touchline. It exudes professionalism and respect, hitherto gaining it back in return.

    Exceptions can of course be made, when umbrellas are involved.

    I’m always right Poopsy. You know that.

    MASH listened to the mob (which includes me) and is starting to gain our trust.
    He still has to keep trying to impress us but we will give him a chance.

    I don’t believe in blind love. That’s what battered wives do. You old battered wife Poopsy. :razz:

    Its an interesting question really, as its quite clear that Hughton could get us fired up for some big matches as well-Villa and scum at home, Arsenal and maybe CHelski in the cup match…pards seems to be able to motivate us against the lesser teams though…and now we’re starting to come up against “big teams” like when we thrashed manure.

    Think its a mix between motivation, better touchline tactics to change a game, fitness and the players.

    TP – i’ve seen a lot admit they have been proved wrong in certain respects (i think i saw stuart say something along those lines the other day along with CC). Maybe they were a bit harsh at the time but for now most have accepted the situation and that the club is moving in the right direction and MA is learniong from his mistakes. If you predicted that he would then ok, well done. Rise above it like MA and be the bigger man ;-) not an attack on you or anyone here btw, just don’t see the need for animosity when 99% are happy to have been proven wrong (for now at least)

    Come on Troy you are bigger than that, hold you hands up and admit you were wrong and i was right ..

    All he needed to do was play further up field and the balance of the team would change.
    Rumour has it he read my article and told Pards. :razz:

    The great thing has been watching your the abusive relationship you’ve been in with Jabba.

    Pards certainly seems to get the best out the players. They obviously respect him and he will often shield them from any criticism in post match interviews ,always ready to shoulder the blame .There has to be some very well thought out additions in the summer, we can’t just buy anyone with a name or talent .They have to fit in well as our team is turning into a well oiled finely tuned machine and the last thing Pards wants is a spanner in the works.

    Poopsy, did you really believe I would admit you were right when in fact you were wrong? :shock:

    I do recall Lambias telling us the fans that the £10m trophy signings were a thing of the past.
    No wonder we criticised the regime.

    They clearly listened to us as within 6 months they bought Cisse.

    You really are confused with life and it’s rules aren’t you? :razz:

    TP you seem to be arguing against yourself…

    Troy you are definitely back tracking on what you said on Cabaye though ;-) Do you not remember my painful explanations to why you couldn’t compare Cabaye with some you had chosen as he was playing a different position to them? And that there is a huge difference to playing defensive midfield to attacking midfield.. :?: You insisted he should have been doing better in central midfield, even that he wasn’t capable of performing attacking wise whilst others argued that it was due to his defensive role. I’ll keep your secret though, just another one to add to your list of errors…

    For me it’s akin to a hide and seek game with regards to our jocular chubster. He’ll fuck off at close season and be well concealed by the time I say “99, 100”.

    We’ll find him eventually (most likely gorging on Greggs Steak Bakes), and if he has more money on him than when he went into Greggs I’ll fall back off my sensible fence, and probably get a nasty graze, ouch. :|

    If you recall I was blaming the tactics of playing Cabaye too deep almost alongside Tiote.
    I was stating he wasn’t supporting the front two enough.

    What a difference it has made changing the formation and now he is playing like an attacking midfielder which is where I said he should be playing .

    You are now blowing fairy bubbles out your trumpet again. :razz:

  165. 165
    SolanosTrumpet says:

    Ah here we go, just typed in “drivel” into the nufcblog search and this popped up.

    “In my opinion, attacking midfielders should be largely judged on the above criteria. Strikers careers live or die on goal stats and quite rightly so.”

    My point back then was that he wasn’t playing attacking midfield so it was unfair to judge him on those stats. Surely now you can see that he is playing much further up the pitch than he was before? You seem to claim credit for it so surely you can see the difference in position?!

    Thank you, that will be all from me tonight.

    Dave…Don’t worry, it won’t get shifted, it’s absolute bollox…imo of course.

    For starters we don’t even know whether we’ll be playing in the Europa league yet but even “if” we are and have a Europa game on that date at home, they would just switch it so we had the away game first then the home game second then there’d be no clash.

  168. 168
    Beardsleys Boots says:

    To be fair to Troll, he did say he was yet to be convinced by Cabaye, but would give him time to settle in before judging him.
    Well its plain to see there is no judging necessary, as Cabaye is oozing more and more class every game.
    some of his perfectly weighted passes are a joy to behold, and now we have a striker that is timing his runs to perfection, BOOM BOOM in go the goals.
    The future is bright, the future is Black and White (or red n blue if your Toonpoops. :twisted: )

    We have won 10 of our last 15 matches, and so tbh I dont think we would fear them in the slightest.
    You are right, I think they would be more worried about us, as they have it all to lose.
    I now have so much faith in Pardew, and I know he will have a game plan to try and bring home the points, if we play to our strengths.
    It has been a long time since I have seen our players so well prepared for a match and fully focused on the job in hand. Yet also so relaxed and confident in their own ability.
    So yeah, why not. Lets go for a mancy shitty win and give em something to think about.

    The management reserves the right to refuse admission. Unless they’re refusing refuse management, in that case that’s fine.

    Ha Ha, there is some feckin drivel on here from post 90 onwards… There are about 6 different posters arguing and none of them seem to be wrong :lol:
    How can that be… :???:
    I liken it to an argument between my 6 & 8 year old kids… embarrassing

    Gloating, no matter from what point of view is a prick of a thing to do and as a result most gloater’s and “I told you so” boys come out looking like pricks :|

    On topic….. You can be the best tactician in the world but if you can’t get the players to play to plan then you are a lost cause. I think Pardew’s real strength is his man management.. Hi tactics are strong without being exceptional but he has his players playing to his plan. We have all seen what happens when a team is dysfunctional and not playing for their gaffer. Tactics don’t mean shit when that is the case.. Look at us when we were relegated, it is a perfect example of that. Pardews relationship with his players has been pivotal to our success this year.. He stood his ground with Barton early in the piece when Barton cracked the shits in a preseason game.. I think it set the tone and let the rest of the team know who was in charge and what would or would not be tolerated. I personally think he has been fantastic this year. Well done to Pardew and his staff… :grin:

    Aussie – you’ve just summed it up perfectly!

    If we qualify for Europa (as opposed to champions league!) The 2 dembas could miss the qualifying rounds because they’ll be called up for international duty at the olympics :???:

    Shit the bed.

    Nobby…the club doesn’t have to release them for the olympics ;-)

    richietoon says:

    …and agree with Aussie@214 :shock:

    DubT…If we were in that round of the Europa the game would be a day either side but I think the problem would be turn around times on switching all the advertising hordings, that’s why I think if the problem arises that we were drawn at home first they’d just switch it so we’d play the away fixture then.

    Aussie – But really we all know I was right all along ;-)

    Troy Stavers says:

    Im always right Toonsy and we are opposites so how does that work? ;-)

    One thing we can agree on tho is Aussie is always wrong! :razz:

    You say hash, I say tag. :shock:

    aussie magpie fan says:

    I thought you were wrong once Toonsy but I was mistaken.. :-)
    Toonsy I think someone has stolen Ritchies persona on here… I became suspisious when he kind of made a nice comment about a post I made.. This is out of charactor :-)

    Nobby you creep ;-)

    aussie magpie fan says:

    Troy , I’ll bet 15m on Tiote & 15m on Krul leaving the Toon that you are somtimes wrong… :-)

    Troy Stavers says:


    Nice to see Cabaye playing more advanced now and changing the team into a more attacking unit without compromising the defence.

    Just shows that book you read was utter pap. :razz:

    You have me confused with Brisvegas Troy.. wrong again, you are on a roll big fella… :-)

    Troy Stavers says:


    You say Tic, I say Tac, Toonsy says Hash and Nobby says Tag.

    Let’s all agree and say Ticcy Taccy, Hashy Taggy. :shock:

    Just bring on Wigan and open a gap between us and Spuds!!

    Got a couple of days of work Troy so I don’t mind a bit of banter to pass the time.. I must admit for a 12 year old you handle a key board pretty well :-) :-)

    toonsy says:

    Reet, let’s get an article sorted. In the meantime I suggest people read this for entertainment purposes. It’s from an Aston Villa forum. Page 1 starts with how they relegated us, but the the shift from then until the last page is quite staggering :lol:

    Troy Stavers says:


    Class link! They absolutely hated us back then and now they are in awe!

    I’m 44 but I’m stuck in 1980. :shock:

    Troy Stavers says:


    You’ve got a couple of days off work?

    Gud on ya geezer !

    Do the jugglers and lion tamers get the same days off as well or just the clowns? :razz:

    aussie magpie fan says:

    G-wiz Troy, it took you 4 minutes to come up with that…. from what your missus tells us, you could of had sex 3 times in that amount of time.. you should work on your time management fella :-)

    Does any else get that satisfying feeling that tickles their body in perverse pleasure, so much it makes you wiggle, when they think about Pulis going hopping mad when Simpson kept getting the towel out to waste time?

    aussie magpie fan says:

    B&B – nope..
    Troy – Huh?

    toon says:

    Whats this simpson geting the towel out can someone explain?

    toonsy says:

    Stoke like to use a towel to dry the ball before they do one of their ridiculous route one throw ins from miles away. When we played at Stoke, Danny Simpson was doing exactly the same thing and using their own advantage against them which pissed them off and basically made them angry to the point where they started spitting dummies out over it.

    It was brilliant :lol:

    Then Simpson tweeting afterwards saying something like “it’s all about the towels” :lol:
