Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well from what I've heard Markus Liebherr wanted to sack Pardew last season, but because of the goodwill from the fans over winning the JPT our chairman, Nicola Cortese, persuaded our owner to give him more time.

But I think that there has been some friction between Pardew and backroom staff, and his sacking was delayed because of Liberherr's passing away.

I've never been really convinced by Pardew, he doesn't really have a plan b and we've been poor at closing games out.

It'll be interesting to see how the team and the crowd react tonight, as we play Swindon in the first round of the JPT.
