How People Can Destroy A Football Club


We are gutted that the Newcastle United Football Club has sank almost without trace in these last 19 days, since Kevin Keegan resigned his position as manager of the club.

Newcastle United Fans have lost out – again

And we are getting increasingly annoyed that an argument between the Board of Directors and Kevin Keegan,  that led to Keegan’s resignation, after several days of negotiating, has left the club like a ship adrift in the ocean, with four solid defeats in a row.

If all participants in those meetings had put the Newcastle United club first and foremost, and not their own individual positions, none of this would have happened – and that’s a fact.

We are not looking for blame here, we’re too upset for that, but they put themselves and their positions first, rather than those of the club, and the club has lost out big time.

We may even end up in the Championship next season if drastic action is not taken – and taken quickly – things are that serious.

We hope the next owner and the next manager will put the club first and foremost in their thinking, but make no mistake – Newcastle are now in desperate trouble

    They look well and truly the worst Newcastle side I’ve seen since I was a kid sitting on my dads shoulders watching us get beat 3 – 2 off Norwich in the old second division. Things jsut go from bad to worse at the minute. I don’t agree with whats gone on behind the scenes at the club but I don’t think all the FAN POWER stuff has helped one bit as now were in limbo and could easily get people in charge far worse than the current crop of muppets………..I think this is the long forseen downfall of the great NUFC :0(

    These men, these people are so egotistical. They think they know better and are too sturborn to admit they’re wrong and are too lazy to do anything about it.
    It’s not fair on the players, on us, and the people who put so much work into building this club, these people seem out to tare it down brick by brick untill it’s unrepairable.

    The players have no confidence, they’re afraid to play, to go near the ball. Our midfield is pedestrian, they try, but I could try to do fly a plane, I’d give it a fair old lash but something tells me that I’ll fail miserably.

    Our defence, they’re worse then I’ve seen in a long, long time. We have in my oppinion the best keeper in the league, yet what the hell are we doing to him. He is outstanding but he’s not superman, he can’t work that many miracles, but we’re asking him to do it every match.
    They are leaving Shay so exposed, like for the second goal tonight, if that continues, I can see what happened at Upton Park happening again. Given will be exposed, he’ll be typical Shay and go in bravely for the ball and will end up getting injured. It’s not fair on him. He’s too good for us at the minute, he always has been, but this is ridiculous.
    You look at Given, Owen, Martins..etc and you think what are they doing here.

    And our forwards, they’re getting very little service but are expected to score goals anyway..to work miracles. But it can’t be done.

    They are taring this club down, piece by piece, brick by brick. If somethings not done yet, then God help us all.

    Alot of pundits are saying relegation by christmas.
    It’s literally unthinkable.
    I havent had to deal with the rubbish for half the amount of time that alot of fans on here have like, but this is literally the saddest period i’ve ever experienced since i was born a toon fan like.
    We need someone in and we need someone in fast, because at the moment we just look like lost boys.
    As terrible as it sounds, im not expecting a win until a new manager/owner is in place. Hughton maybe trying but the signs are not encouraging, and until something changes (eg someone new comes in and changes the set up themselves), i cant see us picking up points.

    There are rumours about Venables coming in..
    I think everyone who is considering this as a good or bad idea for that matter should take a look at this..

    Toonchicken, what the hell, I said I don’t think he’s a great captain, that’s it. What is you’re problem. I said nothing about Owen there, I actually praised him, because he is a good player, which I said. Grow up.
