We have debated this to death on our forum in that the reason why we have less football talk now is because we've come to the conclusion on most things here at Newcastle United.
In regards to Mike Ashley, he is just interested in the financial figures whenever they come in and he will have worked out that Alan Pardew is the best bloke to allow his 'finances' to prosper through means that are alien to what the game is supposed to be about. A lack of entertainment or ambition constant to this cause.
Pardew is here pure and simply for the reason stated above as a pawn in the 'gain as much cash for the least investment possible' game. He's not here on football coaching/management ability or because he was this sought after high profile character. He's an important cog in the works.
To them, the football on offer isn't important or even the mood in general as the premier league reward them with riches no matter what.
To them it's do enough to allow the conveyor belt of swag to roll in for another year.
They still get this regardless of the emotional trauma that the supporters have went through of which some have walked away from a belief they have had all their life.
To committ so much time, effort and cash towards a subject that you hope to get an end result out of, only for it then to be corruptly taken away leaves a hell of a traumatic gap.
At any other premier league club, Pardew would never have been employed and would certainly have been sacked long ago even if he was.
He would never have been allowed to spout his bile or abuse the supporters mentality in the many ways in which he has or allow the brand of negativity to be displayed on the pitch and then spread to the stands or TV screen or even the constant breaking of records for defeats or manner of display in high profile derbies etc but here he's still got support from some which explains a lot about the aforementioned mentality issue.
His continued presence here is not only two fingers up to those of us that have followed the footballing side of the club all our lives but constant proof that he is paramount to Ashley's plan at present and the minute Pardew leaves will be for one of only two reasons.
If Ashley sells or finds another stooge. Whatever comes first.
