Alan Pardew ‘does a Steve McClaren’ as he suffers ‘disaster’ live on Sky Sports

ALAN PARDEW ‘made a Steve McClaren’ during an appearance on Soccer Special last night.

The former Newcastle and Crystal Palace manager was on Sky Sports to describe what is happening in the League Cup.

Pardew, 62, was on the show as Doncaster and Everton met.

Sean Dyche’s side, who had yet to score or record a point in the Premier League, arrived to take on the team currently bottom of the second tier.

They endured a first-half nightmare, losing 1-0 to Joe Ironside’s header in the 44th minute.

Dyche opted to sign new £25m signing Beto in a bid to save the game.

Pardew wasn’t initially impressed with the Portuguese striker.

But when he kicked it off live on air, the 25-year-old fired a shot past Donny goalkeeper Ian Lawlor to level.

Fans compared Pards’ awkward moment to Steve McClaren’s appearance on Sky Sports News of England’s Euro 2016 clash with Iceland.

The former Three Lions manager famously spoke of England’s “perfect reaction and dominance” against Iceland… before being silenced by Kolbeinn Sigthorsson’s goal.


On that occasion, one fan wrote: “Alan Pardew’s Soccer Special disaster.”

While a second snapped: “Why is Alan Pardew even remotely commenting on football?”

Former England cricketer Stuart Broad also attended last night’s Football Saturday.

And many fans felt he was doing a better job than Pards.

One tweeted: “Stuart Broad did a decent job on Sky Alan Pardew no thanks.”

Another added: “Why is Stuart Broad covering the Gillette football special? To be fair he won’t be as bad as Alan Pardew who is there too!”

During his performance, Pardew caused renewed silence in the panel when he spoke of a “disagreement” he had with Aris’ owner when he ran the Greek club.

After the equaliser, Beto almost gave Everton the lead – but his header only hit the post.

Dyche’s men then progressed to the third round thanks to Arnaut Danjuma’s 88th-minute strike.

The Toffees travel to Aston Villa in the next round after losing 4-0 to Unai Emery’s side in the Premier League this season.
