The Magpies were denied a seventh win in a row at the DW Stadium after going four goals down in the first half and the 50-year-old admits the team are also to blameAlan Pardew has admitted he got the psychological and tactical set-up of his Newcastle United team all wrong in their 4-0 defeat at Wigan Athletic on Saturday.
The Magpies conceded all four goals in the first-half on Saturday in a shock win for the relegation-battling Lactics and denied the Tynesiders a seventh victory in a row.
The 50-year-old conceded his part to play in keeping the winning streak going was not done to his full capacity, but also insisted that as a team, the efforts were not good enough against Wigan.
“Collectively we all got it wrong,” Pardew told reporters.
“The psychology of the team and the tactical side of things is my responsibility, and I felt that I let the club down a little bit as well.
“But in the last seven games we’ve won six and then had a really bad 45 minutes. There were reasons for that and we’ve covered a few of those.”
Losing at the DW Stadium hurt the Magpies' chances of qualifying for the Champions League, after dropping down to fifth as a result of the loss and Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Blackburn Rovers.
Newcastle also face a tough week ahead of them, with a game against Chelsea in midweek, before title favourites Manchester City visit the Sports Direct Arena on Sunday.
