Pardew refuses to bow to Newcastle pressure

Alan Pardew has no intention of walking away from Newcastle United despite a season that has seen the Magpies struggle near the foot of the Premier League, capped by a 6-0 home defeat against Liverpool on Saturday, the Daily Mail has reported.

The newspaper adds that the result was Newcastle’s heaviest home defeat in 88 years and it left the Tyneside club in a perilous position at the wrong end of the table. Newcastle are 16th, five points clear of the bottom three but having played a game more than both 18th-placed Wigan Athletic and Aston Villa, who are 17th, and face Newcastle’s near neighbours Sunderland on Monday evening.

It was a second dispiriting result in as many games for Newcastle, having lost to Sunderland – also at home – in their last outing, the 3-0 scoreline their heaviest derby defeat in more than 40 years. But Pardew insists he will not wave the white flag, vowing to turn around his side’s form.

That was probably the heaviest defeat I have had as a manager,” Pardew said. “There were a lot of things I didn’t like but I will make sure we put it right. And that started straight after the game in that dressing room. That is the key,” he added.

” Pardew continued. “

There are a lot of people who will look at us and think we have a great chance of being relegated. We have to prove that wrong.
