Alan Pardew insists he's the man for the job at Newcastle United.
Newcastle have gone from a top-five outfit to a bottom-five side in just six months.
He told the Evening Chronicle: “I went on a league coaching course this week and came away knowing how lucky I am.
“To be manager in front of 52,000 fans is great. It is a fantastic club – I love it here.
“There is nobody more determined than me to turn this situation around. Hopefully I can do it with my captain.”
