Manchester United veteran manager Sir Alex Ferguson, has poured some cold hard facts on the manager situation at Newcastle United.
Sir Alex Ferguson – Newcastle Manager not a job you want
And his words should help Sam Allardyce as he is under severe pressure because of the poor results in the last couple of games. Sir Alex comes out with it, and says anyone who wants to manage Newcastle must be crazy. It’s a job, Ferguson says, that that carries the weight of expectation of a Big Four club, but Newcastle just donâ€™t have the squad to back that expectation up.
Sit Alex said today:
â€œIt seems to me every time Newcastle lose a game the manager is under pressure,” “How many managers have they had in my time at United? At least 10. Iâ€™m not so sure itâ€™s a job you want.”
“Iâ€™d be astounded if they got rid of Sam,” “I am convinced that of all the managers theyâ€™ve had, heâ€™s capable of doing better than most of them.
“The thing with Newcastle fans is they think they should be winning games 5-0,” â€œThe worst thing that happened was beating us 5-0 (in 1996) because after that they expected to do it every time â€” and that was 11 years ago!â€
Sections of Newcastle fans are calling for Sam Allardyce to be sacked, but Ferguson supports Big Sam in the Newcastle manager position. Changing managers has certainly not worked over these last 10 years for Newcastle, who have not won a trophy for close to 40 years.
We remember that little saying – Patience is a virtue – in our current situation. But it’s still hard to be patient after our two previous performances.
