Such a fall from grace for Pardew though.
He'd already lost the crowd and surrendered the win after the first sub. Then he attempts to blame the fans afterwards: "The negativity spread around the stadium. That's what happens at the bottom." The phrase "I got it wrong" definitely isn't in his vocabulary.
