Fans troll Newcastle after Alan Pardew's Crystal Palace thump them

Alan Pardew

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.

Now, in truth, Pardew had been having a bit of a nightmare with the Magpies, there was no real shape to the team and the defending was just all sorts of atrocious.

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.
