It seems like years since Pardew seductively thrust his hips towards the Palace fans in Wembley during the FA Cup final.
His joy that day was short lived as United equalised before winning the cup in extra time. Pardew has been on a steady downhill trajectory since then.
Despite spending serious cash this summer, Palace are stuck in 16th place only one point away the relegation places. The Eagle’s faithful showed their displeasure towards their manager after the 2-1 loss to City. Similar to the end of his reining as Newcastle manager, the sharks seem to be circling around Alan.
A glance at the sack race betting odds won’t offer Pards any comfort either. The odds on Alan Pardew being the next manager to lose his job have been cut from 8/1 into 7/2.
After an impressive victory over Hull City, David Moyes is no longer favourite for the sack. His odds have moved from 15/8 all the way out to 3/1. Mike Phelan, who found himself on the other end of that result, has moved from 13/2 to 7/2.
Bob Bradley 2/1
David Moyes 3/1
Alan Pardew 7/2
Mike Phelan 7/2
Slaven Bilic 14/1
