BBC Sport - Alan Pardew position at Newcastle untenable - Mark Lawrenson
Pardew job untenable - Lawrenson
- From the section Football
BBC Sport's Mark Lawrenson tells Football Focus Alan Pardew's position as manager of Newcastle United is "untenable" after a poor start to the season.
Newcastle started the weekend bottom of the Premier League without a win after four games and Pardew has accused fans calling for his resignation of "mass hysteria".
But Lawrenson says poor home form, coupled with a breakdown in the relationship between the club and the fans, means it is "absolutely impossible" for Pardew to carry on as Newcastle boss.
