Questions are being raised over Newcastle United's training camp in Tenerife last week.

Alan Pardew refused to blame Newcastle's limp FA Cup display at Brighton on their midweek trip to Tenerife.

Pictures emerged in The People yesterday morning of Pardew and some of his players apparently enjoying the local nightlife at their warm weather training camp, just a few days before they crashed out 1-0 to the npower Championship side.

But Magpies boss Pardew said: "I don't think there is any correlation with that at all, to be honest."
