There was a toxic atmosphere at The Hawthorns this afternoon, with fans singing 'You're not fit to wear the shirt' at their underperforming players and 'You're getting sacked in the morning' to Pardew.
The head coach admitted there was no point defending the performance, but when he was asked if he expected to remain in his post, he said: "Well, I hope so but obviously that decision is not with me."
When the calls for his head were put to him, he responded: "I think it's frustration. This team has won three games in 37 game which says everything.
"At the moment we've got to kind of find a way, whichever way it is, to win a game and my job is to try and get ourselves up for next week and win away from home and that's what we will try to do."
