Eight years!

If anything goes wrong then Mike is going to have shell out a hell of a huge sum in compensation.

I guess this shows his dedication and belief in the management and he'll go though hell or high water before he lets his trust waver.

That is insane.

Yay for stability but holy s***, that's unprecedented.

f***ing hell <laugh> that's a hell of a set of deals

Hopefully it'll bring the stability that all teams need to progress. Jesus I'll be mid 20s if they see it all out, I can't even remember any of our other managers lasting more than a season or two <laugh>

Reckon we should've waited to see how we got on this year before offering a big long term contract like that

I think Ashley needs a hearing aid because what Pardew actually said was " Mike....any chance of me and the lads having a raise because we haven't ate properly for years "
My problem is reconciling my gross behaviour with my net income.

So he had 3 years left and we give him an additional 5. I'm all for stability and I don't want to be a negative f***er but it seems a bit of a gamble <laugh>

Not a wise move to be honest, UNLESS Ashley knows something we don't about clubs sniffing around Pardew.

Times can change in football and there's only three managers in Moyes, Wenger and Ferguson who have ever stayed that long at one club out of dozens and dozens of PL managers past and present.

I'm all for stability but managers need to be kept on their toes to keep performing at their peak.

Ashley likes his long-term deals because it maximises compensation payouts and makes it difficult for staff to pressure him for a payrise I think.

For every Ranger or Smith there's plenty of players for whom it works.

Pardew is our Wenger or Ferguson <diva>

Hoping we can follow this up with a shiny new lengthy contract for a certain Mr. Ba too.

WOW. That's a lot of faith shown in the manager but he has a point. Moyes, SAF and Wenger have all been at their clubs longer than that and they're some of the best run clubs in the country. Stability.

At the end of the day, if it all goes wrong and we have to sack him, Ashley's the one who has to pay the compensation, not us.
