Manager Bio

Alan Pardew has managed five clubs in the Premier League.

The former midfielder started as a manager in a four-year spell with Reading, which included promotion from League One to the Championship.

His managerial career in the Premier League started with West Ham United in the 2005/06 season, a couple of years after taking over the club when they were in the Championship.

He gained promotion with the Hammers through the Championship play-offs and immediately led his side to ninth place and the 2006 FA Cup final, which they lost in a penalty shoot-out to Liverpool.

Pardew departed West Ham in December 2006 and took over at Charlton Athletic shortly afterwards, but was unable to help the Addicks avoid relegation from the Premier League in the 2006/07 season.

After a spell in charge of Southampton in League One, Pardew returned to the top level of English football with Newcastle United, guiding the Magpies to 12th in the 2010/11 campaign.

In the following season he led the club to a fifth-placed finish - their highest position for seven years - winning the Premier League Manager of the Season award in the process.

After finishing 16th and then 10th in the next two campaigns, the Englishman left Newcastle to return to Crystal Palace in January of 2015, where he played in the 1990 FA Cup Final for the Eagles. 

He took over at Selhurst Park with the Eagles in 18th position, and an impressive run followed as he managed to guide the south London club to 10th at the end of the term - their highest ever finish in the Premier League. 

A 15th place finish in the 2015/16 campaign was accompanied by an FA Cup Final appearance at Wembley, but the Eagles eventually lost 2-1 in extra time against Manchester United. Pardew parted company with the Eagles in December 2016, with the club in 17th place.

Almost a year later, West Brom announced Pardew as Tony Pulis' successor at the Hawthorns on 29 November 2017.

However, Pardew departed the Baggies by mutual consent on 2 April 2017 with the club bottom of the Premier League table.
