Pardew has come under fire from a section of the Newcastle fans after a disastrous run of form which has seen the Magpies lose five of their last six games.

They have lost six of their last eight home league games, failing to score in all six defeats, and the pressure is growing on Pardew with fans calling for a change at the top at St James' Park.

Pardew is under no illusions as to the ill-feeling towards him from some supporters, but is adamant he will not walk away from his role at the club.

"I would suspect more than half the fans inside St James' Park on Saturday (against Swansea) would want me out," admitted Pardew.

"If the stick's coming my way I accept that but hopefully it's something which doesn't affect the players.

"I want them to have as little pressure as possible but there's a lot of pressure on them to win the game.

"It's frustrating for me because you want to be well received and I want to have the respect of these people - it hurts when you don't get it.

"I am not going to hide from it but it does not hurt me in as much as I want to walk away or go into my shell.

"It just makes me more determined to try and get their opinions to change...and opinions do change."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
