Fans want Pardew out

Cape Town - With his side bottom of the log in the English Premiership, Saturday will be even tougher for Newcastle manager Alan Pardew with fans of the club planning a mass protest against his leadership.

The Chronicle Live report that Pardew will face Hull City and his own club's fans on Saturday, September 20.

Newcastle United host Hull City at St James' Park on Saturday with a group of fans ready to mobilise a mass protest against Pardew.  

200 anti-Pardew banners along with 15 000 A4-sized cards will be displayed inside and outside of the ground says the group behind website SackPardew.com.

The fans plan to protest around the ground as well as taking their banners into the ground, with or without the club's permission.

“We have 200 banners, similar in size to the ones you saw at Southampton on Saturday, that are currently being completed at printers around the city.

“They are small enough to conceal so we can get them into the stadium, but we don’t want to go down that road.

“We have contacted the club to let them know our plans and are still waiting to hear back from them.

“The Hatem Ben Arfa banner (who had him dressed as Che Guevara over the word ‘hope’) at the Crystal Palace match was ours.

“The club gave us permission as long as it wasn’t offensive and that we had a fire safety certificate, which we have for all 200 banners.

“We have also let the police and council know our plans. We want this to be peaceful and well-organised.”

Pardew has been in charge of the Magpies since December 2010 and boasts a record of 62 wins out of 167 matches during his time as head coach of the club.

A lose on Saturday will seemingly end his time at the club with Steve Bruce and David Moyes the leading contenders to replace the Englishman.
