Despite the supporters' current mood, Pardew has called on everyone to get behind the team at St James' Park against relegation fighters Cardiff City on Saturday.
"I know the fans are unhappy and disappointed, particularly with myself, but we need the stadium in the best possible shape we can have it," Pardew told the Shields Gazette. "The players need a lift."
