Kudos to the Sunday Sun for an excellent back page, hitting back at beleaguered Newcastle boss Alan Pardew.
After Newcastle lost 1-0 at Stoke today, the Toon’s fourth successive defeat, Alan Pardew said the following:
“Four defeats for Newcastle is going to bring its own pressure. I don’t think the local press have helped. Four defeats as a Newcastle manager, we have 10 senior players missing. It is a difficult hole to try to fill. Their frustration has boiled over a little bit. And we need to settle it down. The only way to settle it down is to get a win.”
So, the Sunday Sun responded in kind – with a glorious back page that puts Newcastle’s horrible recent form in perspective.
Perhaps Newcastle should have sacked Pardew after the David Meyler head butt incident.
