Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but we're not sure Newcastle fans would agree!
Things really haven't gone well for Newcastle for at least the last three seasons. After a pretty good 2011-2012 campaign which saw the Magpies finish in a Europa League spot, things have just been bleak for them.
And about this time last year, Newcastle fans across the globe were calling for the head of the silver fox that is, Alan Pardew.
And Newcastle fans went all out with their #PardewOut campaign and protests before a couple of games. In the end, Pardew left on his own terms to join his former club, Crystal Palace.
Since then, Pardew has been having a great time with Palace while Newcastle have narrowly avoided relegation on the last day of last season and are now in another basement battle.
So, when Pardew's Palace thumped his former employers 5-1 at Selhurst Park, plenty of neutrals were having a right dig at Newcastle fans on Twitter:
Mind when Newcastle fans were desperate to get Pardew out?— Paul Pritchard (@pcpritchard) November 28, 2015
'Be careful what you wish for' should be aimed at Newcastle, for wanting Pardew out.— West Ham Central (@WestHam_Central) November 28, 2015
So how's the #PardewOut brigade at Newcastle doing? All's well since he left, I guess?— Amol Joshi (@amalezishi) November 28, 2015
I can see why those Newcastle fans hounded Pardew out..— Liam (@McClure_1888) November 28, 2015

Imagine the Newcastle fans hounded Pardew out and now he's parring them.— Damon Wood (@DamonWood10) November 28, 2015
Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle. Pardew is teaching a lesson. The away fans must be saying #PardewOut of Crystal Palace please.— R. (@alrhemist) November 28, 2015
To any Newcastle fans who wanted Pardew out, how does hindsight feel? #4-1— James (@jamesleonard91) November 28, 2015
Remember when Newcastle fans bullied Pardew out of the club because apparently he wasn't good enough?— Phillip Aldridge (@phil_aldridge) November 28, 2015
