Indeed, Pardew has done exceptionally at Palace since leaving Newcastle and is the favourite among bookmakers to eventually succeed Roy Hodgson, according to Sky Bet.
But supporters at St James' Park never seemed convinced that Pardew was doing things right on Tyneside.
The West Brom boss is quoted as telling reporters: "He's done very well everywhere he's been. He's done a fantastic job at Newcastle and I don't think he got the credit he deserved. Now he's gone to Palace and picked it up."
Unsurprisingly, Newcastle fans haven't agreed with the West Brom head coach on Twitter - and generally don't seem to buy into the outsider view about how well Pardew did with their side.
His achievements at Crystal Palace have so far gone unquestioned but many pundits and rival coaches have simply ignored the months of underachievement on Tyneside.
Here's a selection of how Newcastle fans have responded to Pulis's comments about his Palace rival:
@MsiDouglas I think he should, so he can show how out of his depth he'd be.. plus, I don't feel an affiliation to the English team anyway.— Shandy (@LeShandy) October 2, 2015
Amazed that Pulis said, with a straight face, that Pardew could be next England manager. I'd have burst out laughing.— jordan richardson (@jordanrich60) October 2, 2015
