Alan Pardew: West Brom owners might think change is a better thing

Alan Pardew is set to remain in charge of West Bromwich Albion for the foreseeable future

Leicester City manager Claude Puel is hopeful that a four-day training camp in southern Spain will be the flawless preparation for Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final against Chelsea. Pardew acknowledged the situation at the Premier League's bottom club had become so bleak that he needed to speak to Albion's hierarchy "because they might think a change is a better thing for the club".

"My pride on the sidelines is such that I don't want to stand and watch that last 15, 20 minutes".

"They've got to fight to the end".

"I will see them [the board] when I've had a good night's sleep and a glass of wine".

And at the weekend Grzegorz Krychowiak, on loan from Paris St Germain, showed dissent to his manager after he was substituted against Leicester.

"I do have a problem with it because I've supported him and played him and stuck by him when he's not been particularly great", Pardew said.

Leicester assistant boss Michael Appleton, who played for Albion between 2001 and 2003 and was briefly caretaker manager in 2011, would be a candidate. However, exquisite strikes from Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez put the East-Midlanders ahead.

Hundreds of supporters angrily massed just below the director's box during the second half, while fans invaded the pitch after each Burnley goal. It was end-to-end and box-to-box. We can finish the first-half 3-3, it was a little bit insane. "He shows his quality in this game".

"He's improved a lot; he continues to work with good spirit in the training sessions, and is always correct".

The Frenchman said, as quoted by Leicester Mercury: "It was a good opportunity and a fantastic goal. For us it gives us good momentum and it is important for us to keep this good feeling".
