The 52-year-old found himself the target for his own club's fans last Saturday despite the Magpies ending a six-game losing streak with a 3-0 Premier League victory over Cardiff.

Pardew is still in the firing line as he and his players head into their final-day trip to title contenders Liverpool in ninth position after pushing for the Europa League before Christmas.

However, he remains committed to the club and determined to learn from his mistakes.

He said: "I have to face the criticism that has come my way - the fans are not happy - and try to deliver a product that will make them happy.

"The most important thing is that you have a responsibility at Newcastle to play the game on the floor, play with passion and speed and play with an integrity.

"Those principles, I stand by and next year, I expect to deliver on those."

Pardew will hold a debrief with owner Mike Ashley once the season is over, and his own performance - as well as those of his players - will be on the agenda.

However, despite sources on Tyneside dismissing reports in the French media that St Etienne boss Christophe Galtier has been sounded out as a possible replacement, it is understood there is no immediate appetite to relieve him of his duties.

He said: "It's important that we try to be as strong as we can within the finances that we have.

"In the second half of the season, we haven't been strong enough and we need to put that right.

"It's very important to talk about the season because the first half of the season, we were one of the best teams in the Premier League, there's no doubt about that.

"The second half of the season, we weren't. I wasn't good enough and the results weren't good enough for this club, and we need to face that to find the solution.

"I will be as honest and frank as I can be as the manager on what I think we could do to improve that, and I am sure there will be opinions from Mike about what I should do better as well, and that's how it should be.

"Hopefully we get the right solution for us to have a season like we had two years ago when we were competing at the top of the Premier League."

Asked if he expected to still be at the helm at the start of next season, Pardew replied: "I hope so."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
