Surprised Chez Given didn’t just install him as his PA if he’s available on those sort of wages. Imagine the champagne enemas that they could’ve had together

It's beyond ridiculous that it's being dragged out like this. It's clear to absolutely everyone that his time is up, and has been since January really. As others have said, I have no hate for the man. It's a complete waste of energy having such strong negative feelings for a man you don't know. I can only assume that this is a stand off between a man that wants a payoff, and a man who doesn't want to pay it.

 

The article on the Sky Sports site also says that he will continue even if we lose to Swanseas. Class.

If that gif really does capture him on the verge of tears on the touchline, I find it difficult to take any pleasure from that tbh.

 

Of course you wouldn't if it were happening to any sort of half-decent man. But when I see tears in the eyes of such a smug, egomaniacal prick, I don't mind telling you, it makes me a little warm inside.

Precisely!

As has previously been speculated on, I would be shocked it Ashley hasn't inserted certain break clauses into Pardew's contract. However, these would most likely only be exercisable at certain periods during the year e.g. after 10/19 games/at the end of the season etc. It could be that Ashley is waiting until one of these milestones is reached in the knowledge that Pardew will not have met the agreed target at that point and so saving the club from a big payout.

 

Well a boy can dream anyway.

With every game he stays in charge, the chance of relegation increases. Unbelievable he hasn't been sacked already, really.

 

This. I hope Ashley's weighing up any compensation he may have to pay to Pardew against what the club would lose if we got relegated, which we surely will if this continues.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but Keegan had a clause limiting the payout to 2.5m.

 

They may have changed the amount, but there's no way he'd remove it. As anything geared around performance wouldn't limit the liability.

 

My money would be on Ashley doing a find / replace.

 

The delay can only be down to the farce we had that left us with Kinnear (twice).

Ashley won't have gotten a contract drawn up especially for Pardew.

 

He doesn't waste money on anything. Especially when the Keegan one saved his ass.

 

He wasted money on Kinnear...

 

I'm not sure that your logic holds to be honest, he could very easily have gotten a contract drawn up especially for Pardew. Say it cost him £10k for the contract; if it helps him in situations like this, it's going to save him hundreds of thousands, if not millions.

 

I reckon Pardew will get a single season payout, and the termination will have something to do with performance criteria being met (i.e. Ashley can't terminate early if Pardew is still on top of the KPI - once he falls beneath it, it's a different matter entirely). If I was running this club with a view to staying in the PL and nothing else, that's how I'd do it.

This! I know Ashley's a cunt but foremost, he's a business man. If Newcastle start going down the drain, he'll lose money. My money is on him lining up a new Manager, so when he does sack Pardew he'll have a replacement straight away.

Pardew is probably very shrewd himself when it comes to contracts, although he may be on a lowish wage for a PL manager, the new contract was negotiated when he was LMA MAnager of the year and had got us into fifth. I think this stand off is precisely because it is going to cost Ashley a lot of money to dump him.
