These were the best Alan Pardew dance jokes as his celebration of Jason Puncheon’s opening goal in the FA Cup final came back to haunt him.
The Crystal Palace manager threw some rather eye-catching shapes as his side took a 78th minute lead at Wembley, only to see Man Utd equalise three minutes later and then go on to win it in extra time with Jesse Lingard’s strike.
It is the second time that Pardew has seen the FA Cup slip away from him at the death – in 2006, his West Ham team led Liverpool going into the last minute before Steven Gerrard equalised with a spectacular long-range piledriver, the Reds eventually winning on penalties.
Some may have felt sorry for him back then, but this time around there were only Alan Pardew dance jokes to be seen:
Pardew will be regretting that Uncle Knobhead dance now…

If EVERY opposing fan isn't doing this dance towards Pardew, at EVERY game next season, I'll be very disappointed. https://t.co/3xfFdvdoQj

Crazy to think that headbutting an opposition player is now the 2nd worst thing Alan Pardew has done.

That game is the most Pardew thing that Alan Pardew has ever Pardewed.

People who think Pardew has any regrets about that dance are applying a level of introspection to a man who has no concept of shame

Your mum is giggling in front room. An unfamiliar scent. You walk in.
"Hello love," she says. "This is Alan Pardew and he's your new dad."

When Puncheon came off the bench and scored, i thought it was all over. But when i saw Pardew dancing, i knew i was wrong.

The worst part about Pardew's dance is that you know he's practised it in the mirror this morning.
