Pardew: Nothing to do with me Guv!
Speaking in a rare interview, Newcastle United manager, Alan Pardew, has sought to dissociate himself from the club in the current controversy surrounding the attempted signing of Sochaux’s 23 year old striker, Modibo Maiga.

Sochaux have threatened Newcastle United with a complaint to UEFA, something which comes hot on the heels of Charlton’s complaint to the FA over Pardew allegedly making allegedly innappriate comments on BBC Radio Newcastle about an attempt to sign Chalton’s goalkeeper, Rob Elliot. Newcastle have been much reported to be in hot pursuit of the player, despite his current club issuing a statement that he will not be released.

Of the current imbroglio, Sochaux’s chairman, Alexandre Lacombe, told French publication, L’Est Republicain recently:

“Newcastle continue to contact our player despite our refusal, so we will complain to Uefa, and say that these manoeuvres are not fair play. They continue to cause destabilisation.”

In the light of these comments by Lacombe, Pardew responded:

“I can’t tell you anything about that. My brief is to highlight players I think would take the club forward, and the club’s job is to get it over the line.

“I am not involved in that.”

Meanwhile the search for a striker and a left back goes on (and on), as the club plays brinkmanship with other clubs who value their players at a much higher amount than Newcastle are willing to pay, and the complaints to football’s governing bodies mount up.

  1. I dissociate myself with the bullsh!t put out by the plunderers who have taken control of my club
    – I wonder if that will work?

  2. “Newcastle continue to refuse to contact players despite our pleading, so we will complain to anyone who will listen, and say that these manoeuvres are not fair play. They continue to cause destabilisation.”

    In the light of these comments Pardew responded:

    “I can’t tell you anything about that. I just do what I’m told”

  3. doesn’t matter if alan dissociates himself from this,the poor b*****d will be the one who suffers,if the donughts running the club,end up on the receiving end of a transfer embargo.

  4. I think I’ve just cottoned on why so many foreigners want to come to Newcastle. Hope I’m wrong though…

    A mate of mine just rang me and told me he was in Brighton having a drink with a lad from work. He suddenly realised that he was in a gay bar when he saw the mackems come in! :) :)
