Alan Pardew future: David Moyes? Michael Laudrup? Joe Kinnear? Who could replace the Newcastle United manager if he is sacked in the summer?
Pardew has admitted that the pressure is on him after yet another defeat
After their sixth defeat in a row in what has been a torturous season, the Newcastle United fans turned on their manager Alan Pardew in the aftermath of the 3-0 defeat at Arsenal on Monday night.
Pardew admitted that the pressure is growing on him after yet another defeat. It is the first time in 27 years that Newcastle have lost six consecutive top-flight league matches.
Pardew had only returned to the touchline for the first time after a seven-match ban, leaving him in no doubt as to the fan's feelings.
Defeat at home to Cardiff City on Saturday could spell the end for Pardew, as his club fight to secure a top ten finish.
"We've got to finish in the top 10," he said. "If Cardiff think it's important [to win on Saturday], it's important for us to finish in the top 10, believe me."

Of the fans at the Emirates Stadium on Monday, Pardew said: "They're frustrated. We had 2,000 here tonight making this long, long trip. Although we're playing a good team, they expect us to win. They've seen us lose again and they're not happy, and I have to respect that. But all I can do in this job is do it to the best of my ability."
