The former West Ham manager has led his side to just five league victories this year with none coming during the new season.
This has meant that Newcastle are already in the relegation zone and after it was confirmed that Pardew would keep his job, some members of the Toon Army were already getting ready for life in the Championship.
Pardew’s job is “safe” apparently. Relegation it is then. #NUFC

Other fans choose to suggest that Pardew isn’t going to get the sack because he still has six years to run on his current contract.
Of course Pardew isn’t going to quit, he signed a 6 year contract not too long ago, if he gets the sack he won’t have to work again!!

Ashley has to keep Pardew for the Swansea game, trying to save face over his comments. He’s also praying that AP quits. Grim stand-off #NUFC

#nufc back to square one again. Sack Pardew= pay compensation. Club in a desperate state at the moment. Beyond Gullit, Souness sackings etc

Despite keeping his job, Pardew is still favourite to be the first Premier League manager to be sacked this season.
Alan Pardew could be safe for now, but he is still the 3/10 favourite to ‘win’ the Sack Race! https://t.co/dBWgJKRLLI
