A pattern is starting to emerge with Pardew
. At every job he has had he has produced a good year or two to start off with before a massive decline. I remember him having problems with the "Baby Bentley Brigade" at West Ham, maybe he has a problem with long term man management and that's why performances drop off? There were also rumours
that he shagged a Saint's player's wife when he was there as well
, although that's most likely nonsense.
He seems like he has a case of the Glenn Hoddles, therefore he would be a reasonable candidate to replace
as England boss, a job where he would have limited interaction with players due to the lack of a day to day training structure.
