Having seen Newcastle take just one point at home to Derby County and away to Wigan Athletic in the last 5 days, Sam Allardyceâ€™s position at St Jamesâ€™s Park continues to be called into question, especially by Newcastle fans.
Sam Allardyce – massive game for Sam tomorrow
Once Mike Ashley bought the club in June, Newcastle fans are adamant that this is a new dawn for Newcastle United Football Club. If we cannot become a top team under the ownership of Mike with the intelligent Chris Mort running the club, then we never will.
And since it was 1969 when Bobby Moncur lifted the Inter-City Fairs Cup as the last honor for Newcastle, we think itâ€™s understandable that fans at the club are frustrated at Newcastleâ€™s lack of success over the last 40 years.
That has got to change, and itâ€™s no surprise there is doom and gloom once more on Tyneside, after the team collected a single point from successive game against the two bottom clubs in the league. Thatâ€™s just not good enough.
So the game tomorrow at Chelsea becomes a massive game for our manager Sam Allardyce. Itâ€™s not so much the result that matters tomorrow, since Chelsea are unbeaten in domestic competition since 2004 at Stamford Bridge, but the manner of the performance. The last two matches have been just horrific.
And weâ€™ll be looking to see some fight and skill from the lads tomorrow. A performance like we gave against Arsenal recently is whatâ€™s required. Anything less will only mount even more pressure on Big Sam.
