Poll – Can Steve McClaren Turn Things Around At Newcastle?

Saturday, November 28th, 2015 · 45 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.

Seven Days Training For Liverpool – Will It Make Any Difference?

Saturday, November 28th, 2015 · 13 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.

Newcastle A Complete Shambles – Sunday Training Ordered

Saturday, November 28th, 2015 · 24 Comments

Newcastle fans witnessed yet another appalling display by a Newcastle side when we were ripped apart by Crystal Place and this Newcastle side made Palace look like Real Madrid.

They weren’t as good as Real Madrid –  it’s just that Newcastle were really  bad – and quite honestly would make any opposition look good the way we are playing.

It was another terrible, insipid and woeful performance and now puts enormous pressure on Newcastle who have slipped to second bottom of the league.

Newcastle Crisis But No Knee-Jerk Reaction – In Fact No Action

Saturday, November 28th, 2015 · 92 Comments

The last two displays by Newcastle are close to being two of the worst performances we have seen from a Newcastle side in a long long time – and after all the promises last week from the players about how they were going to be better and fight and all that great stuff – it was as bad as at Leicester  City and a worse result.

But if you are expecting some decisive action from Lee Charnley and company who run the club from the top – you may be disappointed  – because Newcastle don’t make knee jerk reactions and in fact in times of difficulty they very rarely take any action at all.


Lee Charnley – what will he do?
Absolutely nothing
