Another award for Alan Pardew

LMA award for Pardew
Just days after being voted the Barclays Manager of the Season, Alan Pardew has another gong to show for his efforts this season.

He has now been voted the LMA Manager of the Season, which is arguably a better achievement on the grounds that it is an award voted on by fellow managers.

That means that within the game it is recognised how well Pardew and Newcastle have done this season. Granted it finished with a whimper at Everton, but on the whole it’s been first class and has gone way beyond any sane expectations.

Newcastle won half of their games throughout the season which isn’t bad at all and has ensured we finished in a European qualification spot. We’ve recorded 15 clean sheets in those games although the fact that we’ve still conceded so many goals is alarming. In fairness, I don’t think that would have been the case had Steven Taylor avoided a serious injury, and I don’t think it will be the case next season with what will hopefully be a beefed up defence…

All in all Pardew has done well to win this award and it shows that the work that has gone on at Newcastle has been picked up on within the game. Speaking at the awards, Pardew had this to say:



“It is an incredible honour,” said Pardew. “Coming from my fellow managers, this really is as good as it gets and has to be the highlight of my managerial career so far.”

“This award is not just for me. Everything we have achieved has been achieved as a result of an incredible team effort. The board, my coaching staff, backroom team, players and our magnificent supporters – they all play a crucial role and I thank every one of them.”

The key thing now is to prove that it wasn’t a one off and to show we are good enough to do it again next season. With the right player recruitment and a similar approach to this season there is no reason why we can’t, even with the Europa League to contend with.

Only three months to go…

  2. anyone get the feeling we’ll sing three defenders this summer? Both full backs and a centre half?

  3. Well done Pards,thought Mancini might get it ,but all things considered Pards has done brilliantly on a much smaller budget to be fair. 😀

  4. Anyone else want us to draw inter in the competition at some point? Just so we can sing ‘have you ever seen a mackem in Milan?’ :mrgreen:

  5. Andy… i’m with you mate!

    To be honest, i’d prefer it when we draw the better teams anyway. it’s not as if we’ve played them a lot in the past several years! It builds for a more exciting game and we play better against better teams. 🙂

  6. Well done pards fully deserved, Thought they would give it to rodgers for some unknown reason the press are creaming over swansea finishing half way up the league after promotion just like us and west brom did last season and loads of others have in the past with nowhere near the same fanfare… 🙄

    Lets hope fat mick can see what a good thing he is onto and attempts to build on this, We made £54m tv money the same as chelsea and liverpool shows were box office again, Back in europe, Respected manager and some top quality players and breaking even again.

    Fabulous effort from all involved… :mrgreen:

  8. Well done pards ,you have certainly changed our opinion,they award is fully desrved,perhaps some of your comments are driven by something we dont know,perhaps Mick has a sale coming ❓

  9. Well done Pards.. I thought Troy may have picked up the award as he is easily the best pl manager currently not managing in the pl. 🙂

  10. Over the moon for Pards. He has been a revelation at the club since coming in and deserves nothing less.

    The whole season has been excellent, and haven’t felt this confident about the future of the club in a long time.

    I thought he had already stated that Simpson was away along with Guthrie in that radio interview? I have been told by a source that 25k a week was offered to Simpson which was the last and final offer…he turned it down again. Perch is on 20k and has 2 year left, they want Santon moved over to right back and Pieters brought in making Simpson redundant and Perch has proved he is very good cover.

    The mention of an 8 goals a season CB would point to Vertonghen but I think that might have been only if we qualified for CL.

  11. Villa fans are buzzing to have mcleish sacked… rightly so. I can’t believe they hired him in the first place. Imagine if we hired Peter reid after the mackems went down. You’d be fuming!

    I hope they ‘do a newcastle’ ( 😆 ) next season and do go down… i hope they’re away to us next season at the end and we demolish them to send them down.

    Revenge is cold and sweet. like wor lasses tea. 😆

    That would be class 😎 we could hold up banners and chant songs about them going down 😈

  13. Evilfranky
    Bet the CB won’t be anyone that we’ve previously discussed, Carr probably has a mountain of a man lined up that plays in league we’ve never heard of, the transfer fee was nuclear codes 😆 he’ll barge through defences when there’s set pieces, ‘accidentally’ breaking Terry’s jaw and scaring Vidic shitless :mrgreen:

  14. Yep well done to NUFC for a great season. Pards and his staff have worked wonders on next to no money and they are a credit to our club. Still feel Llambias took a huge gamble with us by not securing a top central defender in January to stand in for Taylor but hey go. All in all could not really ask for much more from our club this season and now we have footy on the Continent to look forward to again. Great stuff. Let’s just hope they take this opportunity to really strengthen our squad this summer and cement ourselves in our rightful place as a to 6 side for many years to come. How at the Toon

  15. Nobby, I see what your saying about Villa but I can’t see why you would want to behave the same way those pricks did. It would make you no better than those tossers that cheered when we went down.. Don’t sink to their low level mate…

    This is when the ‘neggars’ go “It’ll all just go into Ashley’s back pocket”. 🙄

    We won’t need a CB that can score 8 goals if the opposition goalkeeper runs away, maybe then Ba will be able to score 😆

  18. #BREAKING NEWS#
    Newcastle have just confirmed the signing of 7ft 2″ CB Killakuss from [what’s that Tom? We don’t actually know what league it is?] sorry, it appears that the country that he’s from no longer exists. [Do we at least know the signing fee?] Apparently Mike Ashley was spotted handing a piece of paper over to an auspicious looking man but we have no idea what the cost was. 😯 :mrgreen:

  19. I see talksport seems to think Man U are leading the chase for Debuchy cus SAF went to watch a Lille game 🙄 they mention us as if we’d looked him up once, when in fact I’d put my money on him coming to us.

      (Quote)

  20. Pardew seems to employ the scheme of sign our players good pals, this will mean from Krul we’ll sign Pieters, from willo mariappa, from colo zabaleta/tevez, from santon Balotelli, from Simpson Rooney, from Cabaye Debuchy, from Tiote Yaya Toure, from Jonas Messi :mrgreen: , we’ve already got the ‘pals’ in the Dembas and I don’t think Hatem has many footballing friends that he hasn’t previously picked a fight with.

  21. I love the fact Aussie dashed to the TV immediately and put sky sports straight on! 😛

    No. I tweeted Steve yesterday about what I had been told and he said he had heard the same.
    I’ve spoke to my source today and he hasn’t heard anymore.

    It may not be true but I thought I would share my golden nuggets witchoo. 😯

  23. Talking of golden nuggets , Is Aussie still checking sky sports to see if pards has resigned. 😆

  24. I’ve just bought a Nissan Nivaro open back off roader to pull my caravan.

    I’ve filled the back up with water to make a paddling pool for the kids to keep them entertained when driving to our destination.

    First practice run was a disaster! I had to brake suddenly and the kids and water flew over the drivers cabin!

    Any suggestions how to keep the water in. The kids aren’t a problem as Ive strapped them by the wrist to the back of the truck. 😯

  25. Might need to change your bait Troy… You are looking like a sad lonely fisherman with no fish in his bucket. 🙂

  27. Ah ha. The old double, turn it round trick Aussie. 😆
    Never works and it’s hilarious watching you trying to jump out my bucket. 😛

  28. He he he 🙂 I think I will have to let the crusty old Troyfish go, it certainly will be a bit fatty and will leave a bitter after taste 🙂 this too easy 🙂 🙂

  29. My goodness grief. . I have really caught a snapper today. 😛
    I’ve got to phone Norris Mcguirter from the guiness book of world records immediately.
    Did you say you were 20 stone Aussie? 😆

    A stone stone snapper is not the biggest in the world but the record is for stuffing you in my bucket ! Woo hooooo hoooo hoooo 😆 😆 😆 😆

  30. I must go tell my neighbour Captain Ahab, for it seems I’ve caught the mighty Troyby Dick. 🙂 🙂

      (Quote)

  31. Troy.. put the water in the back as per normal, chuck the kids in then freeze the water. The water then stays in the truck and also has the added bonus that you no longer have to tie the kids in. 😉

  32. @RichieToon

    Good idea that but once the water is froze it will weigh more and may exceed his weight restrictions

  33. Some Crackin ideas there like lads! 😆
