Alan Pardew signs a five and a half year contract under Mike Ashley at Newcastle United
“I represent the fans. I’m an employee of the club, but I’ll be knocking on the door trying to get the maximum funds I can to make the club the best it can be. I’ve never had a problem with that in the past. In the past I have convinced owners to have faith and trust in me to invest.”
“I wanted to be tough on the length of contract and give myself as much stability at a club that hasn’t had much stability with managers.”
I bet you did Al, I bet you did.
