Monday, May 4th, 2015 · 97 Comments

We could have had a chance to survive in the Premier League if the club could have brought in a new coach today, but it looks like Steve McClaren was no mug – and didn’t want to come into the club with three games to go, with everything being in such an awful shambles.

Steve’s no fool.

John Carver – hot-headed personality

We suppose it can be helpful when you say yes all the time to your bosses, and Carver kept his job today – even though he has lost eight games on the trot and looks completely out of his depth.

At a proper football club he would have been fired, and unfortunately for the club Lee Charnley has just made a critical mistake in management of letting sentiment come into his decision making.

But this is probably the first time he’s ever been in management, but Newcastle could be going down because of another stupid and risky decision from the top.

No Leadership At Newcastle From Top To Bottom

Monday, May 4th, 2015 · 42 Comments

Having had some experience in building and running  a large business at IBM, I have to admit that to being completely and utterly stunned – stunned – at the incompetence and lack of leadership shown at Newcastle this year by those at the top.
