Pardew wins manager award

2012-05-11 20:10

London - Newcastle boss Alan Pardew was crowned the Premier League's Manager of the Season after a superb season which has seen the unfancied Magpies challenge for a top-four finish.

Newcastle were expected to struggle this season following the close season departure of Kevin Nolan and Joey Barton, which came after the sale of striker Andy Carroll in January last year.

However Pardew, controversially appointed to replace the sacked Chris Hughton in December 2010, has overseen a renaissance in Newcastle's fortunes, and they remain in the hunt for a Champions League place heading into Sunday's final round of fixtures.

    And West Ham fired him - crazy. Mind you as they did Harry Rednapp. All before current ownership, but still.

    Well deserved. Newcastle are the team of the season.
