The situation at the bottom could well alter before the end of the season, however, should the current trend continue, then many of us will need to warm up that humble pie and concede that there may be some sense behind switching managers after all.

To Sack Or Not To Sack: The Impact Of Changing A Manager

A manager of a football club - sounds like the perfect job for many of us, right? The reality is, it's probably one of the most vulnerable job positions in the world. It's fair to say, in today's climate, a manager is potentially only 5 or 6 games from the sack. Job security is pretty much non-existent in this business, and a poor run of results could see managers packing their bags and heading out the door quicker than they can say David Moyes.

Pardew has already re-teamed with a former star pupil; bring in Remy and the horizon would start to appear even brighter. These are certainly sanguine times for Palace. Pardew got them dreaming once again after a period in the darkness, and they are starting to dream big.

Alan Pardew Deserves Manager of the Season Nod for Remarkable Form With Palace

It is hard to escape the feeling that Newcastle fans, embittered or not, would welcome him back with open arms after the torment since his departure. He may not have always endeared himself to the media or fans, but the fact is, Pardew is flying at Selhurst Park and would deserve a nod for manager of the season.

How Do You Solve a Problem Like Newcastle United?

Everything is in place for Newcastle to be a successful club, but with Mike Ashley as owner, business sense will always win-out over football. Risk is what wins silverware and creates memories, but can easily destroy a club too and therein lies the dilemma for Newcastle United.

Newcastle's Resurgence Will Be Short-Lived and Alan Pardew Should Still Go

Newcastle have flown up the table from 18th to 5th in the space of five matches and Pardew and co are being held up as an example of the good that can come from giving a manager some leeway - and having some patience. It's just a shame that it's all a bit nonsense.

Pardew Struggling to Gain Credit Despite Newcastle's Form

While he will enjoy that much more than those previously seen at the ground, it speaks volumes that even positive signs have negative connotations and are displayed almost in jest. His Newcastle team have what it takes to extend their run of form, though it is unlikely to mean much more in the way of support and backing for Pardew.

The news may seem like a win for those who believe that too many owners, chairmen and chief executives are too trigger happy when it comes to firing managers in search of immediate success. However, in reality, Alan Pardew is lucky to have lasted in the Newcastle hot-seat for as long as he has.

Six Realistic Managerial Targets for Newcastle United That Would Improve on Alan Pardew

Many would argue that a stroke of luck in the transfer market which led to the Tyneside club signing the likes of Yohan Cabaye, Hatem Ben Arfa and Cheick Tiote on the cheap, made Pardew look better than he is and have helped in prolonging his stay. Now that the dust has settled, his tactical and man-management deficiencies seem to be showing him up for what he really is.

Hatem Ben Arfa: Wasted Talent or Talent Wasted?

To let a player of such undeniable potential rot in the reserves ahead of a cut-price or bosman move elsewhere is all sorts of counterproductive. Even Ben Arfa's worst season at the club yielded 8 assists, and if Pardew can bring himself to clear the air, he could be blessed with an impact sub to devastating effect.

Not only are Southampton F.C miles ahead of Newcastle United in terms of how much better they move the ball around the football field, and how they carved out chances at will, while we failed to threaten their goal even once, they are ahead of us in every practical department - even the ones that Mike Ashley would have you believe we are excelling in!
