Newcastle United did something on Saturday that many thought would not be possible: defeat Chelsea.
Jose Mourinho’s side were many football followers’ favourites heading into Saturday’s Premier League clash at St. James’ Park, but they went down 2-1.
Papiss Cisse put Newcastle in the lead in the 57th minute and doubled the advantage on 78 minutes to put the hosts in the driving seat.
Although Didier Drogba halved the deficit seven minutes from time, it failed to lead to a Chelsea comeback.
While many were praising Newcastle manager Alan Pardew for his truly brilliant achievement, former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Lord Sugar was less complimentary.
Not so special now Jose 2-0 . Pardew will be intolerable now he is such a big head— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) December 6, 2014
Newcastle down to 10 men 10 mins to go can Jose equalise. They scored 2 against us in a few mins— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) December 6, 2014
This is going to be an exciting 7 mins plus injury 2-1— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) December 6, 2014
The tunnel at St James will not be big enough for Pardew to walk through his head will hit the sides— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) December 6, 2014
This is not the first time that Lord Sugar has labeled a Premier League manager "a big head". Not so long ago the 67-year-old said the same about Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.
Rogers at Liverpool must admit romancing with PL title was down to Suarez. The big head on TV interviews took credit for teams performance— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) November 23, 2014
One suspects that Pardew is not going to take much notice of Lord Sugar’s comments. After all, he has just defeated the Premier League’s best side.
