Money And Hughton Have Difficult Task At Newcastle


Richard Money will take control of the first team for the foreseeable future, along with Chris Hughton, until a new manager is announced by the Newcastle Board, but that seems as if it will be next week at the earliest.

Richard Money – needs support from the fans – and he’ll get it

Money told The Journal today:

“I’m convinced that the supporters will be behind the team on Saturday and it is so important that they are,”

“I think that at the end of the day the supporters love their football club and I am totally comfortable that they will get behind the team on Saturday.”

“This football club needs the supporters and the team to be as one, there is no doubt about that.”

There have been reports that some of the players are more than discontent with the resignation of Kevin Keegan, but Money has said the players are buckling down and showing good professionalism as he continued:

“That has certainly not been the case. What we have to remember is that they are professional people – we have got a lot of experienced players and their attitude in training has been absolutely exemplary,”

“The players not on international duty have been extremely bright in training over the last few days and their attitude has been nothing short of first class. I can’t stress that enough. This is an important game for this football game and we can’t afford to lose sight of that.”

But Money has also admitted that it’s been a difficult week for everyone at the Tyneside club:

“I think the first few days are always difficult and it was tough for everyone involved. With it being international week that gave us the opportunity to keep the players away from it all, which was definitely a good thing.”

“But with everything that has gone on we shouldn’t forget that a four-point return from the first three games is a creditable return. It is important that we get the right result on Saturday because it’s a very important game.”

Money, Hughton and Thompson will continue to take control of first team affairs on a day-to-day basis while Newcastle look for their fourth manager in 16 months, which is something they appear in no hurry to do.

And it’s a difficult position for Money, Hughton and Thompson to find themseleves in, but they will get all the support they are looking for from the faithful Newcastle crowd.

The fans’ anger is not directed at them, but specifically at Ashley, Wise and Llambias, who have torn the club apart, after a good start to the the playing side of the season.

We wonder if Ashley will show up for the game against Hull City, which under normal circumstances, would be a fairly easy 3 points for us.

We still expect the win, and that will give us 7 points from our first 4 league games, not a bad start to the season. We’re sure the lads will deliver, with the help of the fans, and that will be good, because we all need a little good news.

Comments welcome.

    There was news last week that Ashley wouldn’t be at the Hull game because of prior commitments. I wonder where he’s partying this week? Or could it be a meeting with Ambani?

    When I read the link earlier “Richard Money shocked at Newcastle United promotion “, my immediate thought was ‘how can we put this man in charge when he doesn’t realise we got promoted 16 years ago?’. I get it now though….

    I’m still not gonna go to the match on Saturday. I am not gonna support Del Boy Rodney and Uncle Albert our very own cockney wide boy spiv market traders. Its nothing against the players but we have to mark this in the best way we can. Even if I am the only one who doesn’t turn up it will make ME feel better. Hopefully.

    I always thought it is every manager’s dream to manage a team with great atmosphere like Newcastle United.

    Now that Ashley and gang scared off all the managers, we have to find some noobs to manage the club.

    I think we really need a huge turnaround and get managers we always think we cant get = like Rjikaard or Fatih Terim

    “…but they will get all the support they are looking for from the faithful Newcastle crowd.”

    Since when have NUFC fans been faithful to the management of their club?

    Unless you’re “King Kev”.. of course…

    Any way good luck Richard & Chris & Lads lets get behind the team,THEY NEED US more than ever!!

    Some guy said earlier that,its only 1 game & the players will get over it(If we Boycott) Thats a JOKE…if the stadium is empty it might be the catalyst(begining) of a very POOR season… FACT if it is empty the players already low morale WILL be SHATTERED…PLS PLS PLS dont do it Lads 🙁

    Just to say first class posts over the last week – I cant believe you take the time to try and rationalise with those who perpetually suffer knee jerkitis.

    I just read the blog and thought no wonder we are in such a mess with fans such as ours.

    In arguments there are two sides, and what seemed like such a sortable thing wasnt resolved over in my opinion small work outable points.

    Everyone needs to remember Keegan is as much to blame for everyones suffering as Ashley. if Ashley didnt have a point of view of merit Keegan would not have hung around to discuss it.

    The team of players is the best its been in years. Keegan could have stayed and used the press to put pressure on the club but he lost it the day he walked out. I love the man but he has hurt the club as much as Ashley.

    More importantly THE SHOW MUST GO ON – NO MAN IS BIGGER THAN NUFC.

    i think Ambiani is playing this one very well. He’s probably waiting until Ashley has no choice to sell so he can get us on the cheap (thus having more money to invest in the team)
    I’m going to the match on sat, ive already paid for my season ticket, but i will be making my voice heard and i urge you all to do the same. The majority of the players deserve our support and if Ashley fails to turn up then it goes to prove what a coward he is.
    At times like this we need to stay UNITED, after all it is our name!!!

    Ashley wont sell us on the cheap. I think the bloke is doing well.I hope we get George Graham as manager. He doesnt play great football but he gets results. And if i am honest i cant remember the last time the team entertained me anyway.

    Yeah.. We need to get behind the team, however i also wont be there.. Simply because i dont already have a ticket.. And the thought of buying one in the current situation just doesnt feel right… If anyones boycotting and already has a ticket i’ll gladly pay them for it.. But not the club

    Kevin did stick around to discuss it as you say – I am for KEEGAN but that is MY opinion.

    Great to see money talk.

    This does not change the fact that Ashley is trying to take us for fools and there is no-one with so called authority speaking on record.

    ASHLEY OUT

    To all of those who hate the adverts first of all use a decent web browser.

    Download firefox from http://www.mozilla.org
    Then look for a firefox plug in or extension called Add Blocker Pro.
    Install this to your copy of firefox. Bish bash bosh, easy peasy lemon squeezy no more adverts.
    I wasn’t even aware the site had any adverts until others started complaining.
    Also if you want total blocking of adds such a google ads as well as the banner type, then install the no script add on too.

    Right, now I’ve sorted your boobie worries I’m off to put my mortgage on red, then I’ll keep doubling up until I can afford to buy Ashley out. 🙂

    Sorry to say it, but I hope we lose on Saturday. A couple of half decent results will have this sorry saga dragging on into a new managerial appointment when, in my opinion, Wise needs to go before we can progress.
    A complete fan boycott would have a similar effect but I can’t see that happening. Sad state of affairs, seeing us scratching round in the bin marked ‘Chelsea old boys’ for a managerial candidate. What sort of criteria for success is that, and how limiting .

    Thanks for noticing. I keep telling myself i am not going to bother conversing with those who simply do not want to understand, but in the end i get roped in somehow. Quite annoying really lol.

    Anyway, there are a fair few bloggers on here who are willing to argue a point sensibly whether they are for or against MA, but they seem to be crowded out by the knee jerker gang. Is it me, or do their posts always end up looking something like this,

    “GET DAT FAT MAN OUT AND HIS DWARF! KK IS GOD, I HATE SOUTHERNERS”

    …quite boring really isn’t it?
