Glenn Roeder – Armageddon If Newcastle Relegated

Former Newcastle manager and captain Glenn Roeder has given his verdict on Newcastle’s future if they are relegated, and it’s not good reading.


Glenn Roeder – Armageddon if Newcastle relegated

Roeder talked today about the almost likely  relegation of Newcastle United today, the club he managed from February, 2006 until he was sacked in May, 2007.

“It really would be Armageddon for my old club if they were to drop down into the Championship. But let’s not give up hope and looking at Manchester United at Hull City.”

“We all know that they are not going to field their strongest team but Sir Alex Ferguson’s sides do not roll over for anyone from the first down to the youth team.”

And the interesting thing is that Glenn Roeder was actually the last Newcastle manager to win at Villa Park with a 2-1 victory three seasons ago, and Alan Shearer was in the side that day.

Let’s hope we don’t see an Armageddon this afternoon.

Armageddon is the mystical site of the final battle between God and Satan, or the Devil.

So we suppose Newcastle play God this afternoon, and Aston Villa the Devil.

But that will be true only if we win. 😀

    I remember Blackburn Rovers getting relegated and coming back up. It gave them time to rebuild and they now look like a decent side. I do not think that relegation is Armageddon, it may be just the thing your club needs in the long-run. If the club is well-run, not sure if its possible for Newcastle, it will benefit from the exodus of overpaid and underperformed players.

    I agree with gunners , alot of teams get relegated then bounce back , just look at birmingham city . Shearer seems to want to revamp the club from the bottom up and give the kids a chance . This could be the answer to alot of problems we have had for years now. Too many overpaid players that are here just for the big pay and dont give a damn about the club . With shearer and dowie in charge and players like LuaLua , Carroll , Bassong , S Taylor and Ranger at the club we will be a premiership team the season after next . Remember the promotion season under keegan . Next season will be the same under Shearer . Then again a minor miracle might yet happen today 🙂

    Hull don’t deserve to be in the Premier League.
    They have no quality and skills… They are just being lucky to survive.
