Pardew happy to roll with the good times at Newcastle

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew admits it is a fickle business being a manager in England's north east.

The Magpies manager guided his side to a third-straight Premier League victory when they defeated Liverpool 1-0 at St James' Park on Saturday following a mediocre beginning to the campaign.

Newcastle were winless in their first seven fixtures but now find themselves ninth on the table and Pardew says it is good to now be on the right side of passionate black-and-white fans.

"This is Newcastle and you have to take note that there are real highs," he told BT Sport 1.

"I think Bobby Robson said the highs are massive here and the lows are equally as low.

"He needed a tin hat at times, I need a tin hat at times but when the good times come this is as good a city to be in as any."

Ayoze Perez, who joined from Tenerife in the summer, netted the only goal of the game with a 73rd-minute finish from close range to add to his match-winner at Tottenham in his first start last weekend.
