Should Pardew be Sacked? 8 Worrying Statstics in Supoort of #PardewOut Campaign

Alan Pardew tangles with David Meyler following THAT head-butt incident. Article Courtesy of Newcastle Stats. Alan Pardew was appointed NUFC boss in December 2010, and soon went on to guide us to our first European campaign since our return to top flight football (picking up a Premier League Manager of the Season & LMA Manager of the Year award in the process for the 2011/12 season) – where did it all go wrong?

The former Reading, West Ham, Charlton & Southampton boss has taken a worrying fall from grace since, guiding us to 16th and 10th place finishes; pushing a match official in a Premier League tie with Tottenham, blaring expletives at Manuel Pellegrini and appearing to head-butt David Meyler along the way.

Is his time up at St. James’ Park? Here’s some worrying statistics in favour of the Premier League’s current 2nd longest serving manager’s sacking:

        1.  Alan Pardew is the first ever Newcastle United manager to lose 6 consecutive Premier League matches.

        2.  Since the beginning of the 12/13 season, Pardew’s Newcastle United have been in a losing position 26 times at                       half-time and never won. P26 W0 D2 L24.

         3.  Newcastle United have NEVER went beyond the fourth round of the League Cup or FA Cup under Alan Pardew.

         4.  Alan Pardew has lost as many Tyne-Wear derbies (3) as the last 22 Newcastle United managers combined.

         5.  NUFC failed to score directly from a corner in 102 consecutive games under Alan Pardew between 2012-2014.

         6.  No Premier League club suffered more home defeats in 2012-13 than NUFC under Alan Pardew.

         7.  Between 1993-2010 NUFC had lost 35 Premier League games by 3 goals or more. Since Alan Pardew arrived in                    2010 NUFC have amassed 20 losses by the same margin (more than any other Premier League club)

          8.  In the 2013/14 season Alan Pardew’s Newcastle United lost 4 home games in a row without scoring a goal; the                     first time in the club’s entire history that this has happened.
