Crystal Palace v Manchester United Preview | Team News, Key Men and Stats

On May 9th, Manchester United travel down to Selhurst park to take on Crystal Palace.  Despite the somewhat perilous positions for these two sides around Christmas, both of them face a relatively comfortable end to the season.  While the top four is technically still up for grabs, United are heavy favourites for that all important fourth spot and realistically just need to grab four or five more points, even if Liverpool win their remaining fixtures.  Palace, on the other hand, have …

Football Fans and the Chip On Their Shoulder

Football Fans and the Chip On Their Shoulder

In wake of recent reports that West Ham are considering not extending Sam Allardyce’s contract beyond the summer, I began to think about the fickle nature of the football fan. Fans of football teams generally have high expectations for their clubs, but it is becoming apparent that some have extreme delusions of grandeur. I am using West Ham as an example for now as it contextually relevant, but it is clear they are not the only culprits. So I bought …

Dwight Gayle Crowned Pardew's Prince at Palace

Perhaps one of the more head-turning managerial switches of recent times is that of the ever-controversial Alan Pardew, who swapped from premier league top half side Newcastle United to relegation battlers Crystal Palace. The surprising yet admirable transfer has shot off to the perfect start for managerial veteran Pardew- recording a perfect 3 wins out of 3 in his opening games in charge of the London club. One player Pardew has to thank particularly is the application of in-form forward …

Newcastle United - A Club At A Crossroads?

Under Mike Ashley, Newcastle have been stagnating and the under par working conditions for a manager or, as the next appointment will be, head coach make it difficult for the club to achieve success. Many will have raised their eyebrows at Alan Pardew's decision to leave Newcastle for relegation threatened Crystal Palace, but those with a working knowledge of Ashley and his current regime wouldn't have been surprised at all. It would make an interesting sub plot if Pardew leads …
Pardew Restores the Faith In Tyneside

Pardew Restores the Faith In Tyneside

Fours years ago to the day this coming Tuesday, Alan Pardew was named Chris Houghton's successor as Newcastle United manager. In a Sky Sports poll involving no less than 40,000 Newcastle faithful, the Wimbledon born ex-midfielder received just 5.5% of the vote of who the Toon army preferred to take over the reigns for their first season back in the top flight of English football. Since then it's been one hell of a ride... Pardew soon started to win over the …

Next Premier League Boss to Go?

So who’ll be the next Premier League boss to go? A few short weeks ago, it looked like Alan Pardew at Newcastle United was just hours away from the boot thanks to a woeful start to the season – and the fans’ campaign for him to be sacked. We all know what’s happened since then of course; The Magpies have put an incredible and completely unexpected run of four straight wins together and stand in 8th place in the Premier …

Newcastle United v Liverpool - Betting Preview

Newcastle has really hit form collecting six points from their last two games. Their form line now reads Won 2, Drawn 4, Lost 3, Scored 10 and Conceded 15. At home Newcastle have lost only the once against Man City, with two draws and one victory. It seems Alan Pardew’s men have certainly rediscovered their confidence, going behind against Spurs before hitting two second half goals to seal the victory. In that game Newcastle scored both goals from two shots …
