Luckily I've found a loophole, according to the thread title they were given 8 year contacts, not contracts. <kray>

Imagine that he's actually here for another six and a half years! I'll have probably gave up watching us by then.

If Pardew did complete his contract & leave at the end of it, he will have been in charge of us for at least 405 competitive matches, second only to Joe Harvey who was in charge for 591 games.

Which of our managers has been in charge for the the most matches without winning a trophy? Or even without winning a derby? Pards will surely be in contention for both soon?

EDIT He needs another 141 matches for the first (surpassing Sir Bobby) <awe>
