FFS who? Man United? Liverpool, Arsenal? Man City?

He's not going to get any of those jobs and other than nine or ten clubs Albion are as big as it gets in England.

Lets stop this small time mentality please. If fans talk us down what do they expect from everyone else?

Clean slate for Mr Pardew. Lets all unite and behind the club properly.
First thing , drop the FFS attitude.
I'll explain my view , when Palace hit top form you couldn't keep Pardew out the press and he was all over the England job like a rash . He thinks he's cut out for bigger things , certainly before he got booted at Palace anyway.
I have no issue with that , theres little loyalty these days.
I do believe though as much as I hate small Albion attitude , if the likes of Everton come calling he'd go I'm sure.
Its called reality , I don't like it but unless Mr Lai pumps millions in we are what we are.
Back on topic , as you say clean slate and good luck to him.

well he respects the cups, he tries to play football and attack so that's more than pulis
he referred to us as one of the traditional historic clubs not little old Albion

he needs to rebuild his stock unless he doesn't plan on working again...

not sure about john carver...

wasn't my choice and I doubt he was the choice of many others however he gets a clean slate and my support, hopefully we can get out of this mess and move onwards and upwards.

good luck Alan. if you try to play football the right way and you get us working our way up the league and have a go at the cups and get us to a cup final that were long overdue you wont go far wrong
O Albion we love you

Well said! He's known to like using wide players, and that alone fills me with optimism after the misery of the Pulis regime.

You're lucky there are not more FFS attitudes on here. Some of the things you read and the criticisms are absolutely mind boggling sometimes you only have to look at the attitude some fans have towards Gary Megson, it's enough to drive you to drink. That is a general comment you understand and not directed personally at you.

Everton are appointing Allardyce and to be honest with you I'm glad we've got Pardew over Allardyce. Given the choice I'd choose Pardew. Anyway Pardew isn't going there and won't go there. If he leaves us for a genuine top six club you can understand it but I'd challenge you to find me one manager that wouldn't leave us for a Champions League club.

Top 6 or not money talks , already this morning I've read from a good source theres little to spend unless some go first in January.
You don't have to tell me about some views on Megson but this is a forum and not Facebook or Twitter and we have certain standards how to debate with people. Thats for all of us not aimed at you mate.  There are some crazy views but everybody can have their say in the right manner , feeling are running high no doubt after last night and in fairness with Pardew getting the job. That said like Irvine and Pulis he should be given time.

Is this the same Alan Pardew that got Newcastle to 5th in the Premier league and won manager of the year for 2012? The same bloke who got to two FA Cup finals and a League Cup final? The same bloke who got Newcastle into Europe?  And already our pre conceived views and ideas condemn him as no good?

Not sure exactly who you were expecting, and he wasn't my first choice, but I would say he has a proven Premiership record so why don't we just unite and get behind him?

Welcome to the club Alan

personally think this will be a decent appointment, a polar opposite of what Pulis is\was and we will see a dramatic improvement in style of play

Not my first choice however I dont think its a bad choice either

As has been said on many occasions, we have too many Championship quality players in our squad, hence the poor results. I hope Pardew has the funds to put this right in January.

Yes chap, the same boom and bust Alan Pardew who tends to lose his balance and fall from a cliff on the other side. In fairness I don't know what I expected either, just hoped we weren't going to continue with the Prem' merry go round. It's just so stale, unimaginative and bloody boring. Add Mr Carver and I'm distinctly underwhelmed.

Anyway, it is what it is.........COYfnBs  ;D  ;) .

Nope, as was mentioned in the press the other day it's sell to buy.

The club pay someone (Hammond and pals) a lot of money to make the most boring uninspiring predictable appointment. And before the usual comments when Pulis was up for dismissal not one person on here or anywhere else said ‘I reckon we should sack Pulis and get ‘Pards’ in’.

I seem to recall another of our previous managerial appointments needed to fix his 'damaged' reputation and we were the perfect stepping stone to do that - I give you Roy Hodgson.

As with any new appointment - might not be your first choice, but if he succeeds then we'll be in a better position than we are now, and if not he'll get the boot - and no-one sets out to take a job they think they can't do do they ?

To be honest I don't rate Pardew highly in the past but he will get my full support now.
It is hoped that he can save us from relegation, just like what he did at Crystal Palace in 2014-15 season.

Welcome Alan. Come on Albion!!

good appointment, can only be an improvement upon his predecessor. I feel REALLY good about this.

Welcome Alan, good luck

If he is confident in Carvers ability as a coach, then thats good enough for me.

Pulis did some of those things as well when at Stoke doesn't mean to say he'll do it here

I'll reserve judgement until he has had a number of games under his belt but it's a sad indictment that clubs will mostly resort to the same old faces on the Premiership merry-go-round in the belief that only they could have a realistic chance of keeping teams in the Premiership whether pre-season or mid-season. Moyes was a spectacular failure at Sunderland for example.

Happy with that what else did we expect . He knows the league  most players who have worked with him say good things . Gets my full suport least we got someone in quick and not messed about for a month . Lets hope this gives the club and players a lift .
