As we mentioned two defeats ago, Mike Ashley and Chris Mort need to have a plan on what happens at the club and with our squad, if we do get relegated this season.
Mike Ashley – could have huge problem on his hands
Thatâ€™s becoming a real possibility and even though we all hope it doesnâ€™t happen they will need to understand who they can and want to keep and who they will let go.
Usually players like Michael Owen and the like will be sold simply because thereâ€™s no way we can afford the massive wage bill.Â But what we had suggested is that Ashley may be able to keep the squad together but that may not be realistic.
Thereâ€™s no doubt that if we go get relegated is will be one of the most disastrous season in the clubâ€™s history. We were never in danger of relegation until we went on this terrible 12 game run in the league in which we have picked up just 3 points with 3 draws and 9 defeats.
But with every hopeless defeat itâ€™s becoming more of a reality and this squad could be the best squad ever relegated. Best in skill but maybe the worst as far as heart, guts and effort goes.
We even have two players in Emre and Viduka who could really do a job for us right now, but both have been missing for weeks with what have been officially classified as slight injuries.
What’s going on with these two?
In truth we don’t see enough pride in a lot of our players, who seem to be getting used to being losers. Thatâ€™s the real sad part of this story and this season could mark a dark chapter in Newcastleâ€™s fabulous history. Maybe Kevin should play the recordings of the 3 FA Cup finals in the 1950s so this lot know what this club is all about.
This team should never be relegated based on the skill we have in the squad, not to mention the huge wages we are paying them, because they are supposed to be good players – that’s why we are paying them huge wages – but they are simply not producing.
We’d be happier to see young lads like David Edgar given a chance. When they’ve played they’ve given 100% in effort and determination for the club. That’s because they love the club – just like the Newcastle fans.
But when we sign new players â€“ either to bolster our squad for another PL season – or to bring those in we can afford and who can get us instant promotion from the Championship â€“ letâ€™s make doubly sure they have heart and are willing to give their all for the club.
That’s just not true with all the players we currently have, and even if we stay in the PL – we should unload them in the summer.
Skill with no heart has got us where we are â€“ in big big trouble.
