'Kinnear has twice as many' - Newcastle fans react on Twitter to Pardew award

Joe Kinnear With A Newcastle Fan

The Newcastle United faithful remain as divided as ever on the subject of their head coach, who won the Manager of the Month award for November.

It's never easy being Alan Pardew at Newcastle. Even after winning the Premier League's Manager of the Month award for November, the 53-year-old is far from popular on Tyneside.

Of course, that is perhaps credit to his critics. At least they haven't changed their minds about him just because he's won a short-term award. And plenty of Newcastle fans remember exactly what happened last year - when Pardew was named MOM for November, as well. The Magpies' season didn't exactly go to plan thereafter.

There are plenty who support the Newcastle boss - and duly praise him for winning the award. But many are still wary.

One Twitter account mentioned the fact that Joe Kinnear has won twice as many MOMs as Pardew, while others rightly said it was far too soon to talk of 'humble pie' for those who doubted the 53-year-old. Results in the next few weeks will likely prove pivotal when it comes to the boss's perception on Tyneside, with a Tyne-Wear derby soon to come, while Newcastle travel to Arsenal tomorrow evening.

Naturally, though, there are those who ridicule the Magpies supporters that criticise him. Pardew proving as divisive as ever... here's the best Twitter reaction to his Manager of the Month award.
