You can’t help but feel a little bit sorry for Alan Pardew.
The Newcastle United boss is public enemy number one on Tyneside with Magpies supporters going as far to make a website called SackPardew.com.
A protest was scheduled for St. James’ Park on Saturday when the Toon Army scraped a 2-2 draw against Hull City with two late Papiss Cisse strikes – saving Pardew’s job… for now at least.
But when things are not going for you, it’s there for all to see.
And that is certainly the case for Pardew at the moment, as even the advertising boards want him out!
Here is a shot captured from the recent 4-0 humiliation at Southampton which we think pretty sums up Pardew’s situation at present.
Dead man walking springs to mind at the moment. It’s over to you Mike Ashley!
