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. 😀
