Alan Pardew is a confident and experienced Premier League manager who is currently in the hot seat at Crystal Palace, having previously had spells at Reading, West Ham, Charlton, Southampton and Newcastle.
Pardew has had plenty of success at mid-level Premier League clubs and won both the Premier League Manager and LMA Manager of the season with Newcastle back in 2011/12.
Pardew is a cult hero at Palace having already had success at Selhurst Park as a Player and he is one of the most highly rated English managers currently plying their trade in the Premier League.
I won't ever let it rest until I'm done, to get to one of the big clubs, because I want a bigger percentage chance of winning. Why wouldn't I? I envy those managers that are there, I really do.
I tried to push him away with my head. I apologise to everyone. I should not have got involved in it.
You feel vulnerable when you hear things that are not being said.

The Sack Race's Opinion
Pardew has delivered in almost every job he's had in the Premier League and Championship. Not one to shy away from the media, Pardew is one of the most colourful managers in the top flight and he looks set to be a mainstay at the top of the game for some time to come...unless a "bigger club" comes looking for his services.
