Of course he accepts the anger. He needs them to buy season tickets for next season.

@Mental how well do you know the fans? None expect anything more than upper mid table at best. What upsets us are the insipid performances all of this calendar year like losing 0;1 at home to WBA, 0;3 at home to Sunderland who were atrocious in the matches either side of that victory, 0;1 at home to the worst Fulham team in recent history, they bent over and took a 0;3 at home to Everton, 0;4 at home to mid-table Southampton, 0;1 at home to Stoke. I'll take comfort in the fact that we scored in our home defeat against struggling Swansea. I could reel off many other examples including Cardiff in the cup. Now compare these results with those of 2014 Crystal Palace, a club hardly bestowed with resources...I think NUFC fans have every right to be annoyed. Perhaps you should keep your lazy stereotyped opinions to yourself good sir.

As a Newcastle fan I have no problem with finishing 9th in the league, so long as we were playing like a 9th place team. We aren't. Since the turn of the year our form has us in the bottom two. So thank you for the input 'MentalHobNob', advice taken on board. Not.

Considering the squad and other assets available to Pardew I think 9th in the league is pretty good. Just because Newcastle had a couple of flirtations with the top of the table (a long time ago) I agree with Pards that the fans expectations are way over the top, they could quite easily turn into the next Villa.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
