Once upon a time, not too many moons – or should that be Toons – ago, Alan Pardew was a dashing young gentleman with luscious blonde hair, or at it’s most extreme, a very, very light mousy brown.
Of course, running a club as chaotic as Newcastle has obviously taken it’s toll on Pardew, turning those gushing locks into pure white with every hefty defeat and subsequent sleepless night.
Yet, there’s a mystery that needs solving, first noticed by Whoateallthepies.com:

An intriguing case indeed. So what are the theories?
Perhaps an alien has impregnated it’s young into Pardew’s skull? Perhaps he’s become the victim of a shoe polish-based prank.
