Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has been named Barclays Manager of the Month for November while the Tyne side club’s goalkeeper Tim Krul has been awarded the Player of the Month award.
The ‘Magpies’’ notched up four victories on the trot last month, beginning with the 2-0 home win over Chelsea, followed by the 1-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane, West Bromwich Albions and Norwich City.
That run was in the midweek brought to an end by Swansea, resulting to a drop in the league to seventh.
Pardew, who recently acknowledged an improve in form of some of his key players, inspired the Toon Army’s hope for an European berth and were at a point sitting fifth on the log- coming from a poor run of form in October.
It is the second time the manager, who is currently the longest-serving in the Premier League, will be winning the award.
Goalkeeper Krul makes it a Newcastle double after picking up the Player of the Month prize. The Dutchman played a key role in helping the side to four successive victories, keeping clean sheets against Chelsea and Spurs.
Up next for Newcastle is a trip to mid-table sitting Manchester United this weekend as they hope to keep up the winning mentality.
