We have never been people who look for excuses when things don’t go right.
Alex Ferguson responsible for Newcastle demise – let’s stop this rubbish
And we have to admit to being frustrated at all the news going on about what team Sir Alex Ferguson will field against Hull City at the KC stadium next Sunday.
Since that’s just 3 days before the reigning European and World Club Champions will take on Barcelona in the European Champions League, we wouldn’t even expect Ferguson to play his top team on Sunday.
He wants to play his top team on Wednesday night.
After all, that’s why clubs have big squads, especially with Manchester United. They have played 60 games in all competitions this season up till this point, and have only two games left – away to Hull City on Sunday and against Barcelona on Wednesday night. And they will have had a full week to prepare for Hull City.
If Hull manage to win on Sunday, please let’s not say Newcastle’s relegation (we can still survive by beating Villa and Sunderland lose to Chelsea – wouldn’t that be sweet?), is Alex Ferguson’s fault in any way.
It’s embarrassing to even talk about it.
Against Fulham it seemed to be all Howard Webb’s fault – hey – give us a break – please!
What about the 37 league games Newcastle have played this season, and accumulated just 34 points? Wonder if that’s got anything to do with our plight?
This season will be our worst points total ever in the Premier League following last season’s total of 43, which was also the points total of the season before that, for which then manager Glenn Roeder was fired.
And since Glenn left in May, 2007, we’ve had 5 managers, including Chris Hughton. More is not better when appointing managers. 😀
And these are the lowest three points totals in Newcastle’s 16 years in the top league – so we cannot even say it hasn’t been coming.
No, we all know where the responsibility for our demise lies – and here’s a big hint – it’s not at Old Trafford.
