McClaren Explains What Went Wrong And 12 Cup Finals Left

Saturday, February 13th, 2016 · 119 Comments

Newcastle turned in one of their most pathetic performances of the season tonight at Stamford Bridge and this with only  12 games left in the season to save ourselves.

And Steve McClaren is saying the same thing he said when we had just 3 points from the first 8 games – we need to become more consistent.

So when is that going to happen?

Ashley Must Act Decisively – Some Changes Must Be Made

Saturday, February 13th, 2016 · 46 Comments

With the 5-1 drubbing at Chelsea today we sink to 3rd bottom in the Premier League with 24 points from 26 games and our goal difference of -22 is the worst in the Premier League and our defense showed today they are simply not good enough for the Premier League.

At best it was schoolboy defending at best and every single goal was caused by sloppy defending and it’s difficult to know where Newcastle go from here – it was that bad – maybe the worst display of the season in that first half and this follows on from what was maybe one of our best displays last Saturday at home against West Brom.

You talk about Jekyll and Hide?

This display would have given hope to all those clubs near the bottom with us – it was so disgraceful.
