According to Sky Sports, Alan Pardew’s job as the boss of Newcastle United is safe after 1-0 defeat to Stoke City.
Newcastle United have failed to register a single win this season and manager Alan Pardew is under heavy pressure, but as of now his job remains safe. Newcastle travel to Liberty stadium to face Swansea this weekend. Sky Sports also suggest, Alan Pardew will not be sacked even if Newcastle United lose to Swansea at the Liberty stadium on Saturday.
Alan Pardew admitted that he will have some serious talks with Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley over the next few days. Newcastle United are 19th in the Premier League table after the 1-0 defeat to Stoke City.
The 53-year-old told Sky Sports after the game: “It leaves us in the bottom three. We’ve got to fight, I’ve got to fight and the team’s got to fight and that’s what we’ll continue to do until we turn it round.
“I don’t expect a serious conversation with Mike Ashley tonight but I think we’ll have some serious conversations before Saturday, because he doesn’t want to lose and nor do I.
“It’s important that I showed to the team that I’m here to lead.
“I’ve never really been in this situation before – it’s unique – but I’m a professional football manager. That’s what I do, and that’s what I’ll continue to do.”
Pardew added: “It’s a tough place to come (is) Stoke on any given day, but today was tough for us.
“(There were) slight margins in the game but unfortunately another defeat for us and you can’t keep getting beat so we’re going to have to address that.
“That’s been our problem probably for most of the season really (the final third letting them down).
“We’ve got to find a little bit more quality there. Our delivery, our method a little bit let us down in that area. We’re going to need to make a couple of changes I think to the starting 11 to give ourselves a bit more thrust.
“We just need something in that final area, someone to create the moment. We’ve had a few chances tonight. Unfortunately tonight we weren’t able to get that.”
