Pardew In Ranger Admission
Alan Pardew has laid his thoughts on the line about Nile Ranger by giving an interview to the local media.
Basically, to cut a longish story short. Alan Pardew has no faith in him and has pretty much ended his career here in admission of a player's apparent get up and go attitude or lack of it in this case.
Maybe it's a case of blast him in public to get him to knuckle down but we've been here before and id say 99% of the fans want shot of him, excusing the puns, due to the player's 'Wannabe Gangsta' attitude on Twitter or wherever.
Pardew's quotes to the Newcastle Evening Chronicle included:
"This guy is late so often, it is unbelievable. He`s still at this football club and we`re still trying to do something with him.
"But he will still not get back in the team unless he has a period of six weeks where he isn`t late.
"I don`t think it is going to happen.
I don't think it'll happen either as the amount of chances we've given Ranger is beyond belief. The stupid thing about this and by stupid i mean for Ranger is that the lad had massive potential with some of his performances in the past making a mockery of his then young age.
Now he's been overtaken by 17 year old Adam Campbell and 21 year old Sammy Ameobi, It would take a minor miracle for Nile to come good but maybe he'll realise that you don't get paid to mess around with guns unless you become an actor but then again, he's been pretending to be a footballer for at least the last two years.
Over to you Nile. Prove us wrong.
