Pardew was utterly detestable but there were some entertaining performances during his tenure (most of them despite him rather than because of him). The 4-4 against Arsenal springs to mind.

Under Bruce we’ve seen nothing in 18 months and if anything, it’s getting worse. I know Pardew had better players but Bruce could have the Man City first team and we’d still be boring as f*** to watch. He’s No.1 for me now

f***ing hell. How do you get to a position where Alan Pardew only has 6% of the vote for worst manager in the last few years.

By appointing Lee f***ing Charnley to run your club and hire the managers.

Move to the Mike Ashley thread because I'm p*ssed off, get more p*ssed off.
Come to this thread to cheer myself up a bit.

As much as it pains me to say it, and it really does, Pardew at least managed to get Ben Arfa in his team when he could, despite his apparent lack of team ethic that was supposedly causing dressing room issues behind the scenes (Colo especially taking exception), whereas Bruce never gave him a look in even at Hull fking City.

Very strong point!

The time Bruce signed him was the time he was also outcast by Pardew let’s not forget. We were seeing Gouffran, Sammy Ameobi and even f***ing Gosling ahead of him.
