Sunday Sun burns Newcastle boss Alan Pardew big time

Alan Pardew has been complaining about the local press lately, saying they’re not helping his struggling Newcastle side.

"I think the local press up in the North-East have been damaging for us this week," Pardew said. ”They’ve come for us, they’ve been banned from the stadium and that’s reflected in the fans today. “

Well, this is what one of those banned local newspaper thinks about Pardew’s comments.

Ouch. That’s going to sting for a while.

Alan Pardew probably won’t be on the sideline any time soon

Newcastle’s impressive 4-1 win over Hull should have been what everyone was talking about after the final whistle on Saturday, but manager Alan Pardew stole the spotlight.

There aren’t many things a manager could do on the sideline that are worse than head butting a player from the opposing team.

Pardew was quick to apologize, saying he was just trying to "push him away with my head." So, were his hands not working?

We have a feeling that we won’t be seeing the Magpies boss on the touchline any time soon.

Sir Alex Ferguson calls out Alan Pardew, takes shot at Newcastle

After avoiding punishment from the FA for berating referee Mike Dean at halftime over Jonny Evans’ controversial own goal Wednesday, Sir Alex Ferguson was apparently not too pleased over Newcastle boss Alan Pardew’s assessment that he should’ve been sent off for his actions. Here’s what Sir Alex had to say in response to Pardew’s comments:

“Alan Pardew has come out and criticized me, he is the worst at haranguing referees. He shoves them and makes a joke of it. How he can criticize me is unbelievable. He forgets the help I gave him, by the way.”

"I was demonstrative but I was not out of order. The press have had a field day. The only person they have not spoken to is Barack Obama because he is busy. It is unfortunate but I am the manager of the most famous club in the world. Not Newcastle, a wee club in the north east."

"I was demonstrative. I am always demonstrative. Everyone knows that. I am an emotional guy. But I was not abusive. I shouted Mike over. We walked towards each other. I was only on [the pitch] three or four yards. That has been overplayed. The problem for me is that the profile of this club is huge.”

Yikes, Newcastle. Score this one as a Fergie win, if for nothing else but our pure entertainment.
