Alan Pardew will send Newcastle into battle for the 150th time on Wednesday evening desperate to end the club's trophy drought before he reaches another landmark.
– Newcastle manager Alan Pardew
It's a job in which the passion from the fans just can't help but inspire you, and I have enjoyed 90 per cent of my time here.
But I have lost some emotional games, Sunderland games and the cup games - they are tough to take when you are the manager of this team and you are desperate to win a trophy.
But my overall feeling is one of pride. I think we have done a good job. We have produced some fantastic football and had some unbelievable results.
We had a high finish two years ago, a quarter-final of the Europa League and hopefully this year, a strong finish, so I am proud of that.
