Before he reached the point of his inevitable and deserved sacking at Crystal Palace, Alan Pardew was a figure who generated a fair amount of revulsion from those of our faithful Black & White tribe. Pardew has a legacy of arse-licking, excuse-making, crap football and shit results on Tyneside that many of us long saw right through before he did the off for the Selhurst Shilling two years ago. Before Pardew reached the point of being pedalled in South London, our man Gareth Harrison pulled together a rather splendid piece capturing exactly why the London Media’s poster-boy got up our collective trip. This is one of a load of great articles in issue 128 of true faith – Newcastle United’s most popular and longest running fanzine.

Happy New Year by the way.
