Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has accepted the fact that his job is under pressure after the team lost yet another match in the Premier league. Newcastle United have been on a very bad run of form since the turn of the year.
They have lost an incredible 14 matches since the January transfer window saw the sale of Yohan Cabaye to PSG. Despite this poor run of form, they have been able to maintain their position in the top half of the table due to the work done in the first half of the campaign.
Arsenal put more misery on Newcastle after a 3-0 win over the north-east club on Monday night – though this result had been hotly tipped by the guys at england italien odds.
The match saw several Newcastle fans voiced their opinions against Pardew, who just completed his touchline ban. After the match, the manager accepted that things are not going well for him at the club, but he expects the players to turn the situation around. Sacking Pardew will result in major losses for Newcastle since the manager is on an eight-year contract that he signed only recently.
It is also believed to be the one of the reasons the club did not sacked him when he was convicted of head-butting a Hull city player.
“I’ve lost six on the trot as manager of Newcastle, so you have to accept that. I know they are disappointed and angry at the moment that we haven’t got a result. I think the bigger picture is we’re in a good position in the summer and we need to focus on finishing in the top 10. We need to win on Saturday. That’s put extra pressure on us, this little run, but the players have shown tonight that they’re working hard enough and if we can get a break, and perhaps the opposition are not as good as they were tonight,” said Pardew.
