Newcastle boss Pardew calls on fans to abandon walkout

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has urged supporters not to stage their planned walkout during Saturday’s game with Cardiff City, the Guardian has reported.

After six straight defeats which have left the club’s season to badly fizzle out, Newcastle supporters have been vocal in showing their discontent, with a growing number calling for manager Alan Pardew to be sacked despite having six and-a-half years remaining on his current contract.

The supporters have also aimed some of their dissatisfaction at owner Mike Ashley for what they perceive as a lack of ambition, and they now plan to stage a mass walkout in the 69th minute of Saturday’s game, due to the fact that the club’s last major trophy came back in 1969.

But Pardew has appealed to fans and told them to get behind the team and not be involved in an exodus. He said: "I just think the club has to come first sometimes and I think Saturday is an occasion where this has to happen. The team needs the passion of the fans. It's not about the board or me, it's about 11 players wearing the black and white of Newcastle at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon.

‘You're going to walk away after an hour and leave them to it? I don't think that's right and I really, really hope they don't do that. People don't see the feeling in our dressing room, they don't see that emotion. We're desperate to win for our fans. We know we've let them down."
