Should Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew resign?

It's not working out big time at Newcastle this season, and the fans are on manager Alan Pardew's back already. Bottom of the table, with only 2 points and a -6 goal difference to their name, Newcastle's display against Southampton at the weekend was abysmal. Should Pardew do the honourable thing then, and jump before he is pushed? Or should the Magpies' boss stay, and help create more performances like the one Newcastle produced against Man City in their opening match of the season? Let's debate!

Ashley is still behind him at least so he says in public. But they cant keep losing (11 out of 12?! or they will have to drop him.

There is such a thing as negative momentum, you're right. The next few results will be crucial for Pardew.

He won't but maybe he should. Pardew is in his mid fifties and its a question if he has the fire to get Newcastle out of this mess. Age is not everything but in football you can't keep doddering till you're 65.

Perhaps not, but Pellegrini is 61, Wenger is almost 65 and Fergie retired at 71. Fire and passion is important, but surely experience is required, too?

Experience is even more important, no argument with that. But without the drive it doesn't pay off. For instance Alex Ferguson should have got out gracefully a long time before he did. Obvious example but still valid. The sad thing is that the manager himself is the last one to know when he's lost the edge.

I think Ashley is right for standing by Pardew. I remember there was revolt last year after the Liverpool loss. But they are looking on their watch of course, and they should. Pardew needs to sort it out, if he is even able ://

Ashley is just doing the right thing politically it doesn't mean much, Pardew is marked.

The fans know that if they don't enforce, bad things can happen. Its no democracy, but the club will listen when supporters put some pressure on.
