Organisers from a campaign group called 'Sack Pardew' have staged a large-scale protest in and around St James's Park ahead of their match with Hull City.
The group say they will be distributing 30,000 leaflets and 100 banners from 10 pubs in Newcastle city centre. Tigers Manager Steve Bruce is one of the favourites to replace Pardew if he is sacked. It is the first time the two side's have met since Pardew head-butted Hull City's David Meyler last season.
Hull and former Sunderland boss Steve Bruce has said it is 'disrespectful' to link him to Alan Pardew's job as Newcastle manager.
Pardew faces increasing pressure after another 4-0 defeat left Newcastle United at the very bottom of the Premier League table without a win this season.
Bruce is one of several people rumoured to be possible candidates for the job, but he told a BBC radio station he did not think the speculation was fair on Pardew.
