Photos: Pardew reunited with Newcastle boss and Daryl Janmaat

Alan Pardew

The Crystal Palace boss was reunited with his former side during last night's Premier League clash.

It was a night of mixed emotions for Alan Pardew. Even if the Crystal Palace boss wouldn't have shown it, it had to be.

The same thoughts would no doubt have run across the 53-year-old's mind that run through anyone else's during a reunion with a former employer or side. There would be an inevitable look back to Pardew's good times at Newcastle United. Regret as to how things panned out. Sadness at the thought of the bad times. And a desire to prove he is in a better place at Crystal Palace than he ever was at Newcastle.

Pardew didn't quite get the result he would have ultimately desired against the Magpies at Selhurst Park, with the Eagles drawing 1-1 with the Tyneside outfit.

But the Palace boss did get the last laugh through Fraizer Campbell's equaliser.

During the Palace - Newcastle encounter, meanwhile, Pardew was snapped with former colleague John Carver - now his successor at St James' Park - and also right-back Daryl Janmaat, the man he brought to Newcastle for £5 million this summer.

Here, then, are the best pictures of the Crystal Palace boss up against his former side.
