Alan Pardew’s West Brom in big trouble after incredible incident on their mid-season break in Barcelona

Former NUFC boss Alan Pardew has got his struggling West Brom side in even more trouble, with him now having to deal with an ‘investigation’ following an incident on the Baggies’ mid-season break in Spain this week – claimed to involve FOUR drunk senior players ‘stealing a taxi’ in Barcelona!

Although they had been their to enjoy the sunshine and use Espanyol’s training facilities in Spain, it has now emerged in a club statement that FOUR West Brom players have been involved in “an incident” during their trip away – and the details of that ‘incident’ are quite incredible.

Reports have emerged that these four players in question have been quizzed by Spanish police after stealing a car and bringing it back to their hotel in Barcelona at 6am after a night out. Sounds like they’ve went for a piss up in Spain, not a training camp to get them focused on staying up this season!

I mean, it’s not like they aren’t bottom of the league so could afford to let their hair down..

Ironically, Benitez was asked about a potential break abroad for the NUFC squad this week, however he preferred to keep his players training at home and ‘happy with their families’. Here’s what Rafa said about Newcastle’s decision NOT to go on a mid-season break. Take note Alan!

“Our idea is to train and keep the players happy with their families.

“Some people prefer to go away at this time of year.

“But when you are travelling away throughout the season in the Premier League and the cups and you are also training most days I don’t think players get the time to spend with their family.

“So if you can give them that time back it is much better for them.”

Oh Alan..

  1. Don’t think Pardew can carry the can for this, unfortunately! 😀 What is the matter with the modern footballer? If you or I did this we’d spend time in one of those unpleasant Spanish jails. Theft and drunk driving rolled into one. Still, carry on lads, you make our job even easier.

    Totally agree! Just doesn’t help his or WBA’s cause!

  3. Pardew must realise that he’s in serious trouble when his players turn up at the hotel shouting “Taxi for Alan Pardew!”
