From wins against Liverpool and Manchester United to THAT Arsenal game - the 14 most memorable moments from Alan Pardew's reign as Newcastle United manager

Eleven years ago today it was announced that Alan Pardew would be Chris Hughton’s replacement as Newcastle United manager.

Pardew came to Newcastle as a replacement for the hugely popular Hughton who had been sacked, despite guiding the team to the Championship title six months earlier.

After keeping the team in the Premier League, Pardew then guided Newcastle into Europe, being named Premier League and LMA Manager of the Year in the process.

This success is what earned Pardew his eight-year contract, however, within two and a half seasons, he had left St James’s Park as he made the switch to Selhurst Park.

There were many ups and downs during Pardew’s time in charge at Newcastle and here we have collated 14 of the most memorable moments during his four years in charge at Newcastle.

Some of these are moments you simply will never forget, some are ones you would like to forget, but all of them happened during Pardew’s reign as manager.
