On Wednesday, news broke that embattled Newcastle manager Alan Pardew would remain with the club for the 2014-15 season. 

Newcastle finished in 10th place in the Premier League, but after flirting with European places early on, the club slumped in the second half after the sale of Yohan Cabaye, and the disappointing spell was Pardew's seven-match ban for headbutting Hull midfielder David Meyler. 

Judging by the response on Twitter, most were shocked Newcastle opted to keep Pardew. Newcastle fans weren't incredibly pleased, either. 


Reports that Alan Pardew will remain in charge of Newcastle. It's ridiculous how many managers keep their jobs these days.
