KUMB Poll Says West Ham Fans Support Pardew
My gut feeling that Pardew still has the backing of West Ham fans has been backed up by a poll by KUMB. 80% of voters in the KUMB poll, which was taken following yesterday's 2-0 defeat, backed Alan Pardew and only 14% thought that he should be replaced.
After getting West Ham promoted and leading the club to a successful first season back in the Premiership Pardew also has considerable support from the West Ham board. However if West Ham are taken over his position could be less secure. Kia Joorabchian doesn't seem to have been too impressed with Pardew and I don't believe he would sit back and allow a manager to leave out his two Argentinian players. The Magnusson bid already seems jittery by West Ham's current position in the league and if they were to take over the club I presume they wouldn't give the present manager much time to turn things around.
