Alan Scott Pardew is an English football manager and former professional footballer. He is currently the head coach of Eredivisie side ADO Den Haag.
There’s something magical about the FA Cup final, don’t you think?Wembley, the sun shining, a bowling green of a pitch… jumpers for goalposts. Sorry I’ve taken that too far.Here’s some clips of our guests talking about that most special day in the football calendarFirst up, then West Ham manager Alan Pardew tells us of the day in 2006 when Stevie G broke his heart with an injury-time equaliser from, what, 160 yards, to force extra-time and penalties.Gary McAllister continues the Liverpool theme when he talks us through his part in the Anfield club’s 2-1 win over Arsenal in the 2001 FA Cup final.Robbie di Matteo scored the fastest goal in FA Cup final history in 1997 and he talks us through that iconic moment, before Terry Gibson takes us back to 1988 and the day the Crazy Gang beat Liverpool to pick up the famous trophy.Finally, listen up for Ander Herrera’s reflections on the 2016 FA Cup final, which marked his first major honour at United.Enjoy!Graham  See for privacy and opt-out information.
In this one, Alan Pardew was brilliant on some very big moments in his career, the kind that can go either way and result in very different outcomes. Like, what if Steven Gerrard hadn't hit one of the all-time FA Cup final goals against Pardew's West Ham in 2006 (there's also great insight into how that goal happened)? Or how does the Newcastle United story pan out if Hatem Ben Arfa scores for 2-0 against Benfica in the Europa League quarter-final? There's also loads here about his origins in non-league, man-marking Gazza, the future for Crystal Palace and much more. Alan was a generous host at the Palace training ground, and gave us an open and insightful interview. I hope you like it.  See for privacy and opt-out information.
