Pardew The Victim?

Pardew The Victim?

We've said and written many things about the silver foxed pretender but just how accurate have our thoughts been?

The common thought train is that Pardew is part of an elaborate scheme to help Ashley line his pockets via advertising of his brand and the selling and lack of reinvesting players that wont move the club forward and tackle European dreams that will need vast fortunes to prepare for.

An ideal man to lack the ambition that many would want in his position with 8th to 17th the ultimate plan here to cream the premier league riches.

There is however, another thought that Pardew was a Derek Llambias appointment and not really on terms with Ashley. The decent season we had finishing 5th made Ashley tie him down on Llambias's wishes, to a long term deal before a dismal season last made Ashley want this torn up.

A reluctant Pardew and a massive contract to pay off for Ashley then made him bring in Joe Kinnear in order to step on his toes. Huffing players by getting their names wrong after a day on the plonk being like a blind man in a crockery shop for Pardew's nerve.

Continual cases of undermining and lies see Pardew regularly wheeled in front of the press with regular cases of embarrassment.

Is he being hung out to dry?

Is he a victim here?

A quote from a piece in The Guardian by Louise Taylor was interesting to say the least and may shed light on any relationship

'I'm a professional manager,' he said. 'If I was in charge, solely, of transfers things might be different but I'm not. I think I've made my opinions very clear this week and all the rest of it is confidential.'

Interesting Alan, very interesting.
