Bookie: Pardew believes that the fans will still be angry

Pay per head sportsbooks saw that Newcastle secured their first victory at St James’ Park in seven league matches, even though goals from Shola Ameobi, Loic Remy and Steven Taylor were not able to ease the pressure on the under-fire Newcastle manager.
During the second half of the match, pay per head sportsbooks and bookies were surprised to see that fans made walk-out protests against the club’s direction, and Pardew believes that their win on Saturday will not change the general opinion of the team’s fans.
UK bookmaker services learned that Pardew, who for much of the game remained in the dugout, did say that maybe fans should take a look at relegated Cardiff, so they could see that things could be worse for the club.
“The most important thing was a victory for our fans,” he said.
“(The fans are) obviously very angry about the recent run. There’s no doubt about that.
“It made it a difficult atmosphere here. I thought they (Newcastle’s players) handled that really well because the pressure was enormous on them.
“We got a very important win against a team who needed to win.
“Me coming to the sideline was only antagonising them and I don’t want to do that and make the atmosphere worse for the players.
“So it seemed a lot more sensible to let (assistant) John (Carver) do that and take a seat.
“I feel for Cardiff because I thought their players gave everything and their manager did. As much as we can bleat and moan about our situation, I feel for them tonight.
“It’s a long way home on the back of a relegation.”
UK bookmaker services and price per head services can see that this season, Newcastle are still on their way for a top-half finish despite a poor run of form since the turn of the year, and many bookies would like to see things change.
But pay per head sportsbooks learned that even if they end their season with a win over Liverpool at Anfield next week, Pardew and many bookies don’t expect a significant change in atmosphere at the club.

When he was asked if such a result would give him more hope of gaining fan support, Pardew said: “A win against Cardiff today was never going to do that and perhaps a win against Liverpool might not do it either.”
