Pardew Ready To Make Tough Calls

Alan Pardew has insisted he will not shy away from the tough decisions as he attempts to bring tangible success to Newcastle.

The 53-year-old manager ended last season firmly in the firing line when he was booed by his own fans at St James’ Park with the campaign drawing to a disappointing conclusion.

It was he who bore the brunt of the criticism after Yohan Cabaye’s January exit for Paris St Germain prompted an alarming slump in form, and his cause was not helped by his own disciplinary problems after he head-butted Hull midfielder David Meyler.

A summer spending spree, which has seen owner Mike Ashley sanction the acquisition of nine new arrivals to date, has helped to dilute some of the ire on Tyneside, but Pardew will return to the dug-out for the visit of champions Manchester City today with bridges still to be built.
