Pardew will not walk away

Under-pressure manager Alan Pardew has promised to silence the Newcastle United boo-boys and insists he will not quit St James' Park.

The north-east giants have endured a wretched calendar year - losing 13 games so far in 2014 in all competitions, 11 of them to nil - and Pardew has come under increasing calls from disgruntled supporters to leave.

His situation was not helped earlier in the season when he was hit with a seven-match ban for headbutting Hull City's David Meyler.

It also emerged this week midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa trained with the reserves as punishment for breaching club rules by reportedly holding his own press conference, while social media was awash with suggestions of a 69th-minute walk-out (1969 was the year Newcastle last won a trophy) by fans on Saturday.

Pardew has vowed to soldier on in the face of adversity and believes he will emerge stronger from the experience.

When asked in a press conference before Newcastle's game against Cardiff City if he thinks he will keep his job, the 52-year-old replied: "Yes, I do. The personality you need to be a manager is you need to be very strong-willed."

The former West Ham and Southampton manager added: "If I take some criticism and ridicule, whatever comes my way, I have to show the players that I'm strong enough to cope with that. They ultimately have to cope with the pressure on the pitch.

"My love for the job gives me the strength to come through this."
