Pardew – “There’s An Art To Mediocrity”Posted: February 21, 2008
Beleaguered Charlton boss Alan Pardew has leapt to his own defence.
Pardew spoke to the press this morning, saying "Whereas some people just see Alan Pardew the football manager, I look at myself as Alan Pardew the artist, a whole and fully-formed person. It just so happens that Alan Pardew the artist is going through what some might call his ‘mediocrity period’ but in a year from now it could be his ‘promotion period’. Or maybe his ‘gardening and crosswords period’.
It’s just a case of looking at the bigger picture. There are lots of leagues. No-one says you have to be in the top one all the time".
