Reminiscing about the coach who was ‘truely educated’ by Lingard, the ‘most likely to join FC Seoul,’… “I regret what happened then.” Why?


Former Crystal Palace head coach Alan Pardew regrets his actions in the FA Cup final. 

“Football Talk” reported Pardew’s interview on the 6th (Korea time). “I regret what happened in the FA Cup final against Manchester United,” Pardew said. 

Pardew had a unique history of being an amateur soccer player when he was a player. When he was young, he moved to different amateur clubs as a taxi driver and construction worker. He managed to enter the professional world by taking a truly miraculous opportunity. 

After moving to Crystal Palace, he became a professional player and contributed to his team’s promotion to the top flight in 1989. In 1990, he scored the finishing goal in a semi-final match against Liverpool, one of the most prestigious matches in F-Cup history, to lead his team to a 4-3 victory. After moving to various clubs, he retired and began coaching.

Pardew took charge of Reading’s second division in 1997. In March 1998, he served as an acting coach at Reading, which was in the third division, and was promoted to the first division coach in the 1999-00 season, where he began his coaching career. As he promoted his team to the second division in the 2001-02 season, he began to draw attention as a promising young coach.

In September 2003, he left for West Ham United, which was demoted from the English Premier League (EPL), and finished sixth, the starting line of the 2004-05 season, before being promoted to the Premier League through the playoffs. In the 2005-06 season, he elevated West Ham, which had just been promoted, to ninth place in the league and the FA Cup final. 

In December 2006, Pardew was dismissed due to poor performance, and in December 2010, he was appointed Newcastle United’s new manager after playing for Charlton Athletic and Southampton. Newcastle won the UEFA Europa League ticket by ranking fifth in the league, and Pardew was named the Premier League Manager of the Year. 

In January 2015, he was offered a transfer from Newcastle and took the helm of Palace. Pardew elevated Palace, which had remained in the relegation zone, to 10th place in the league. In the 2015-16 season, Palace advanced to the FA Cup final for the first time in 26 years, demonstrating its potential. 

Pardew left Palace during the 2016-17 season. Since then, he has played for West Bromwich, ADO Den Haach of the Dutch second division, the prestigious Bulgarian club PFC CSKA Sofia and Greek professional league Arist Thessaloniki. 

Pardew, who does not have a team yet, recalled his days as manager of Palace in an interview with Football Talk. In particular, he talked about the FA Cup final against Manchester United. At that time, Palace took the lead with Jason Puncheon’s first goal in the 32nd minute of the second half. At this time, Pardew performed a strange dance and performed a ceremony.  꽁머니지급

Palace’s joy was short-lived, however. In the 35th minute of the second half, Juan Mata, aided by Marouane Fellaini, scored the equalizer. The match led to extra time, and Palace missed the trophy after being bowled out by Jesse Lingard, who is currently a potential FC Seoul player. 

After the game, Pardew’s dance became a mockery. Pardew said in an interview, “My daughter said, ‘There’s a new dance,’ and I think it was in my head at the time of the final. I should never have done that dance. Unfortunately, people remember that dance.”
