Rumours are circulating that the Newcastle boss, Alan Pardew, is soon to become the first managerial casualty of the Premier League season.

Newcastle recorded a crushing defeat this weekend losing 4-0 to Southampton at St. Mary's. A poor league start that has seen the Magpies take only two points from their opening four games may convince chairman Mike Ashley that a managerial change is needed, according to the Daily Mail.

Pardew exit

Repeated chants of ‘We want Pardew out’ and ‘Alan Pardew, it’s never your fault’ could be heard when after just six minutes Newcastle conceded their first of the evening. A recent poll of 5,000 Newcastle fans in local paper the Evening Chronicle, Pardew got an 85 per cent disapproval rating.

Pardew responded to the fan's criticism: ‘They are fair because you can’t get beat 4-0 as Newcastle manager. It is tough to take and not that easy to digest and not easy for the
players either to play under those circumstances.'

‘We have to be strong and try and tough it out this week and come back next week. We just have to put ourselves on the line really and be brave. We have more quality than we showed today for sure. We need to get that on the pitch.‘Until told otherwise, I’ll continue to prepare the team.’
