    Pardew big-head ?

    Alan Pardew ‘I could manage a top club’

    Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew says he could do a better job than some of the Premier League’s big-name managers

    But Pardew, who has led the Eagles to six wins in the last ten Premier League matches since he replaced Neil Warnock in January, insists that he does not want to leave his job at Selhurst Park.

    “I look at the top teams and feel I could do that job better than I’m seeing it being done,” he told BBC Radio 5live’s Sportsweek programme. “But I’m quite happy where I am and if I work in this part of the league for the rest of my career I will be extremely happy. I’m really happy here – I don’t really want another job. In a way the [Palace] board have been lucky because even if I have great success here I won’t be looking to jump away.”

    Palace host Manchester City at Selhurst Park on Monday night, and Pardew acknowledges that the strength in depth that the Premier League champions possess could prove the difference between the teams.

    “Mr Pellegrini’s options on the bench will be significantly stronger than my own to try and get a result in the game with 15 minutes to go,” he continued. “But it doesn’t always work out like that – Burnley proved to Manchester City it is about sometimes the team being stronger than the individual and on Monday night we hope that’s the case for Crystal Palace.’”


    Is Alan Pardew deluded with 'greatness' and should his choice of words be rather more modest? Over to you ...

    He was managing a big club - but left them to manage Palarse. He's done little to prove it; The Mancs, Scouse and London 3 (the big clubs right now) wouldn't risk him, he's at his level professionally cos that's where he is.

    This story is awesome:

    From his West Ham days, comes an extraordinary anecdote ­courtesy of club ­photographer Steve Bacon, one of several staff to dine with Pardew in a hotel before a game at Sunderland.

    “When the gaffer sat down with his backroom team, deciding on his order, he asked fitness coach Tony Strudwick what he was getting – and told him he’d take it if it looked good.

    When the meals arrived, Pards said to Tony, ‘Yours looks better, I’m having that,’ and swapped plates.

    I told him 'you can’t just take someone else’s dinner'. Pards retorted, ‘When you’re the king, you can do anything’.”

    Direct quote from Stevie's book
    " I dont like Alan Pardew. There, I've said it. In fact, I don't think I've ever known a more arrogant person in my life. We never got on from the first moment we met- and our relationship deteriorated from there. There was one occasion when I threatened to stick a fork in his hand. I was sort of joking, but there were definitely times when I felt like swinging at him. Or telling him to fork off, if you follow my drift"

    What has Stevie got to to say about the "you fat barsteward" chant?  One of my funniest moments at UP when I first heard that & I think I was there for it's first "airing".

    "One Stevie Bacon, there's only one Stevie Bacon"
    "Stevie, Stevie give us a wave...."
    Stevie waves.
    "You fat barsteward, you fat barsteward...."

    Mind you, looking at his photo for the publicity for his book it looks like he has shed a few lbs.

    I'd love to see us playing with the confidence and flair Palace have at the moment. Yeah, bug headed maybe but do I give a toss? It's a successful manager I want.
