    Alan Pardew

    No doubt Alan P will be celebrating Den Haag staying up under his leadership today. Signed a contract to end of the season no doubt heavily weighted to keeping them up.

    Managed to win his first game and non after that. Club 7 points adrift in last place when lockdown started in Holland. Yesterday Dutch football abandoned the season with all relegation and promotion cancelled.

    No doubt Alanís lawyers will argue that he has fulfilled his commitment and kept them up!! Another achievement for his long cv.

    Padew, Pulis and Moore.. three of our previous managers that we should have given them a chance as they would have managed to change things around, apparently.

    Only Darren Moore I have total respect for as he served us well as a player and iím glad we gave him a chance as our manager despite it not ending well for him.
    Pardew and Pulis, how long till club owners realize that the managerial merry go round these two have been should raise alarm.

    I agree Swedish! Still think had Megson stayed on things may have been different. Big Dave was clearly out of his depth as a manager and I lost some respect for him with many pathetic selections and the team selection when hammered at Leeds was the straw that broke the camels back!

    Yeah, but I think there is a major difference between Moore, at the beginning of a managerial career, and Pardew, a supposed experienced manager when and if you compare their achievements with us.

    That's the point - I was fkn there! Went with a Leeds mate ( who paid ) as he said he had decent seats so thought it would be half way line/corporate - fkn **** had seats next to their kop! Horrible experience - horrible supporters! Playing Barry in a midfield of 4 was almost as fkn stupid as playing Gayle on the wing!

    The Pardew debacle at Den Haag makes me cast my mind back and think 'what the hell were our wonderful backroom Rodneys doing giving him a job at Albion'

    Stay safe baggie boys and girls.
