Alan Pardew: His Newcastle side are in d

Alan Pardew knows he has an awkward conversation with owner Mike Ashley to come, but hopes he will remain in the Newcastle manager's job after it.

The Magpies have failed to back-up last season's top-five finish and are in the midst of a relegation battle heading into Sunday's game at QPR.

With an eight-year contract to his name Pardew would not be expected to be made to pay for results, but the former West Ham manager knows that could end up being the case.

"Mike and I will sit down as soon as we know what division we're in," he told a number of national newspapers.

"We know we've got an uncomfortable conversation regarding the form this year, the under-achievement and everything else.

"We need to find out what the reasons were and then it's for Mike, and hopefully with me, to decide how to go forward. It's a privilege and honour to be manager of this club.

"But Mike could decide he needs a new manager. I like to think that he won't, that next year he'll stay with myself."

Pardew's men are one place outside the drop zone with two games left. A victory on Sunday would leave them vulnerable only to Wigan winning their last two games and other results going against them.
