Hereâ€™s some good information the Newcastle Evening Chronicle have got from a source close to the Newcastle Board of Directors, and every Newcastle United fan, who wants to be cheered up should read it. 😀
Chris Mort – Thinks – how do we get entertaining football at the club?
Why? Because the board wants Newcastle United to be trying to win every single game with attacking and entertaining football. What a concept.
That source told the Chronicle today:
â€œThe current board lost patience with Sam due to his unwillingness to play a more attractive brand of football.â€ The manager only seemed to want to win ugly.â€
â€œWhile nobody minds the team winning ugly now and again, nobody at club wanted that every week.â€ â€œHowever, at the minute they felt they were losing ugly.â€
â€œThey had tried to keep the pressure off Sam by being supportive and coming out in public to back him, but felt enough is enough.â€
â€œThe board was willing to find new players, but it was always a doubt whether they would be signed under Sam.â€ â€œThey speak to players here a lot of the time and they are not happy with the style of play.â€
Meanwhile, the talk coming from the dressing room was presumably one of discontent. But weâ€™ve heard this before, and thatâ€™s certainly not what the players had been telling the press, during Sam’s short reign. The same was said about the dressing room when Glenn Roeder left, but weâ€™re a bit skeptical about this always being the case when our managers get sacked.
Speaking on what the players thought, the insider added:
â€œIt is not what they are used to.â€ While it is probably successful at other clubs, it is not working there.â€
â€œThe players want to play a more attacking style of football.â€ â€œThey are perfectly entitled to feel that way because many of them have played in the Champions League.â€
â€œIt is not about losing to teams like Manchester United.â€ â€œNewcastle United should be trying to win every game.â€
â€œThe problem has been they have been losing to Wigan Athletic, Portsmouth and Derby. Newcastle will be making additions to the squad during the January transfer window.â€
That’s almost exactly what the fans’ complaint has been, about Big Sam. So it looks to us like the Newcastle Board know what they want – and that’s exactly what the fans want. Hey – good times may really be ahead after all. Hope so. 😀
The other thing that should cheer us all up is that Mike Ashley is a very successful businessman and he usually gets what he wants.
That’s great, because he wants his team, Newcastle United to be very successful.
