Crystal Palace boss Pardew feels for Moyes at Sunderland

Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew feels for David Moyes at Sunderland.

Sunderland remain 19th and without a Premier League victory in their first five fixtures as they prepare to host Pardew's Crystal Palace on Saturday.

"You can have sympathy for that situation because it's not a nice situation," said Pardew, 55. "And you guys make it 10 times worse.

'David's experienced enough as it is, but our trade being what it is, we're going there to win. "And we're going to go there and do the best possible job that we can, with a team that at the moment looks in good form.

"I thought Jose (Mourinho) had a good point, actually, his 'Einstein quote' (that criticised the short-term memories of critics).

"We're judged on three or four games, and nothing beforehand seems to get a mention.

"David Moyes is a fantastic manager. His record at Everton is the best of any (active) British manager, probably, and he deserves respect for that."
