Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew’s actions at the weekend have been widely condemned by Newcastle supporters’ groups today. During Saturday’s game against Hull City, Pardew pushed his head into the face of Hull City’s David Meyler when he retrieved the ball from the Newcastle technical area. Pardew has since apologised and been fined £100,000 by the Club for acting like a soft southern patsy instead of properly decking the former Sunderland player.
‘He’s a disgrace man,’ explained season ticket holder Darren Walton. ‘No wonder he’s apologised after calling that a headbutt. I’m off to defend our team’s honour by punching a police horse.’
It is not the first time that Pardew has been in trouble for his wimpy actions on the touchlines. Just two months ago, there was only an exchange of offensive words between Pardew and Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrino when most commentators thought he could easily have taken the older man. Previous altercations with Arsene Wenger and Martin O’Neill similarly resulted in disappointing bits of girlie pushing and shoving rather than proper fights.
Pardew faces an FA investigation which is almost certain to result in a lengthy ban from the dugouts for the big girl’s blouse. League Managers’ Association chief executive Richard Bevan described Pardew’s action as ‘inappropriate’ but added that, as a former Crystal Palace player, Pardew was naturally a bit of a wuss and that allowances should be made for his southernness.
Newcastle have confirmed that Pardew will not be sacked over the incident. A Club spokesman said, ‘Absolutely not, especially since Alan has agreed to undergo anger management therapy. He will learn how to angrily headbutt former Mackems in a way that breaks noses so our fans can sing about them gannin doon the road with all their bleeding faces.’
That last para feels like it lacks a certain something though.
Could they maybe get a scottish grandma in as coach to teach him to nut properly? Perhaps starting with a scathing appraisal of his current technique as 'not fit to take the skin off ma porridge', followed by a Glasgow kiss and full reconstructive dental work.
I think Glasgow nanas would be terrific coaches. It is what Sir Alex Ferguson aspired to be but never quite achieved.
Agree, Pardew should sue anyone who calls that a head butt, which involves a backwards and forwards motion, but in this case was purely forwards. Mrs Lesbian and myself would call it 'nuzzling'.
Indeed... is it just me or does anyone else regard the "disgust" that "everyone" (...in the media, at least) feels towards anyone in the sporting world showing the slightest hint of aggression towards an opponent as being a little disingenuous? If the same thing had happened in a car park outside a pub it wouldn't even have made the inside pages of local newspaper.
