Everton legend Neville Southall blames Alan Pardew for Newcastle United's problems.

The Welshman is fed-up with Pardew's excuses.

He wrote for Paddy Power: "To make it at Newcastle, you need a bit of class and you need to graft because that's what the Geordies appreciate.

"Now they've got a good squad, but I have doubts about the manager.

"Alan Pardew makes excuse after excuse when they lose. Even before they played Manchester City he was blaming Yohan Cabaye because he was supposedly on the verge of joining Arsenal."
