Newcastle fans show their anger towards Pardew after Sunderland defeat

Alan Pardew

Newcastle supporters were not happy with their club after Saturday's 3-0 defeat to Sunderland - and they were not afraid to show their anger.

At least no horses got hurt this time. That we know of...

But Newcastle fans were still as disgruntled as ever with Mike Ashley and Alan Pardew on Saturday, as the Magpies stooped to their third defeat in a row against Sunderland - their second of the season against their fierce rivals.

And they were not exactly shy to show their anger.

First, an angry Toon fan ran onto the turf to throw his season ticket at Pardew.

Then, according to reports, there were pockets of disturbance after the game on St James' Boulevard that resulted in ugly scenes.

Although the majority of fans were well behaved and violent incidents were kept to a minimum, 10 arrests were made post-match.

Back on the pitch, meanwhile, vociferous boos could be heard both at half-time and full-time from the home faithful. Ashley and Pardew are not a popular pair right now.

Supporters have recently been incensed by the sale of star midfielder Yohan Cabye to Paris Saint-Germain, although the club's form this season sees them sit in eighth place in the Premier League - just three points behind Manchester United.

It seems fans are still worried about their team, however, especially if yesterday's performance is anything to go by.
