Shearer Reveals Key Difference Between Sunderland And Newcastle

Saturday, November 28th, 2015 · 21 Comments

Newcastle United just couldn´t handle the attacking Crystal Palace at Selhurst today and we made them look like world beaters.

And our defense looks worse than hopeless – and they were all over the place for the whole game – just like last week at home to Leicester.

And if Palace hasn´t missed a number of second half chances the score would have been a lot worse than just 5-1.

Newcastle Imploding Fast – In Complete Disarray

Saturday, November 28th, 2015 · 27 Comments

We were promised a much-improved display at Crystal Palace today and what did we get – another abject performance from a bunch of players who don´t seem to be good enough to keep Newcastle in the Premier League this season and cannot handle any adversity in a game.

And Steve McClaren will come under increasing pressure too with this being the worst start in Newcastle´s 123 year history with just 10 points from 14 games.

Our goal difference is -16 – the worst in the Premier League and the 30 goals conceded – also the worst in the Premier League.

Poll – Can Steve McClaren Turn Things Around At Newcastle?

Saturday, November 28th, 2015 · 123 Comments

We are taking the pulse of the Newcastle fans after another horrendous performance by our team today – this time in south London at Crystal Palace we easily lost the game 5-1 and they have become a much better side than Newcastle this year.

And that’s 8-1 we have lost the last two games by and we have now conceded 30 goals in our 14 league games and lie second bottom of the league with 10 points from 14 games which would give us 27 points over a 38 game season.

Steve McClaren is having a tough time of it right now – let us know if you think he can turn things around on Tyneside.

Newcastle Train Next Seven Days – Can That Make The Difference?

Saturday, November 28th, 2015 · 14 Comments

We were not happy with the appointment of Steve McClaren as the Newcastle  manager just weeks after he had been fired by Championship club Derby County.

But hey, we were very willing to give him a chance and we want Newcastle to be successful again whoever the manager is.

But we have to sayt that in the last two games Newcastle have looked simply atrocious and Steve McClaren and his coaching staff have to take responsibility for some of that.

The players also have to take responsibility because most of them have been simply hopeless.

Time To Drop Sissoko And Possibly Coloccini Too

Saturday, November 28th, 2015 · 42 Comments

Steve McClaren does not have a lot of time to start to get things right because we just cannot see Mike Ashley letting Newcastle hit rock bottom in the league and doing nothing about it.

And when you realize that our next three games are against Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa we have little chance of picking anything up in the first two games and if Villa manage to beat us at St. James Park  – the disaster scenario – we could be in really bad shape after the Villa game.

Maybe not in 20th place but preciously close to it depending on how Villa do in their next two games.
