Chris Hughton Could Still Take Charge At Newcastle

The Evening Chronicle is reporting that Newcastle  United are arranging a trip across the Irish Sea for the pre-season.

Mike Ashley and Derek Llambias of  Newcastle United

They are likely to arrange a couple of friendlies over there, and the games will apparently take place before the first of three friendly games arranged earlier this week, which is against Darlington on 18th July, and that’s just 4 weeks tomorrow.

Of course the question most Newcastle fans have,is that if Chris takes over and Ashley continues his stubbornness and ignores Shearer , which players will take part  in our pre-season friendlies? It would appear that only Alan Shearer seems to have done anything about bringing in potential new players.

Mike Ashley and Derek LLambias continue to not accept their responsibilities at the club by allowing the club fully prepare for next season.

Appointing the luckless Chris , who seems to have been sued as a pawn this last season where he got the job of trying to keep the club going – three times no less.

But if Mike does appoint him over Alan Shearer as the manager, that would surely be the final mockery that Ashley can bestow on this club, he has so decimated  over the last year.

The unfortunate thing in all of this, is that it looks like nothing can be done to stop this man from continuing to make a laughing stock out of the Newcastle  club.

    Stardust you really do my head in mate I really don’t understand you. Ed writes blogs for people to read and discuss things and all you seem to be able to do is moan and diss everyone in your way (Including Ed) Yes you are quite a smart character there is no denying that and I do agree with alot of the things you write concerning Newcastle on this blog, but that does not not give you the right to be so dis respectful I think you are very vein and stuck up

    All those players that were more concerned about their holidays than being relegated after the Villa match should be sent on the Ireland tour by ferry, with any luck the boat might sink and save us a few bucks.

    Again, Ed – I think you’re making stuff up to fill the silence.

    Then again – what’s the point in having a blog if you can’t do what you like with it?

    For what it’s worth, I’m still hopeful that there’s a hell of a lot going on that we don’t know about, in terms of player transfers, management appointments and the sale of the club. Whether any of these are going well is a different matter!

    I think there is a log-jam of stuff that’s ready to be finalised but there is some legal or financial barrier which as to be removed first. Ashley and co may be completely useless at all things football-related, but I am getting the impression that the sale is actually progressing ok and that Shearer is being quiet for good reason.

    I suspect that the potential bidders have all said that they don’t want any staff movements in or out until they are in charge, but that – at Big Al’s instruction – behind the scenes the more obvious deals are being set up ready for signatures.

    It makes for lousy press and much biting of nails, but the outcome could still be very good.

    Pass me another happy-pill, will ya?

    A blog is a bit like radio -you can’t have silence. What do they call it – dead air?
    And from Llambias and Ashley there’s always plenty silence.
    Pity is, unlike Al’s, its not the sort of quiet that reflects any dignity, self composure or careful planning. No, their silence is the sneaky, sinister, creeping about in the dark sort of silence. It is a silence as discrete as a fat-bellied bloke in a toon top downing a pint in one go on the terraces in full view of 50 million Sky viewers.
    It is the silence of delay, of another disappointment when, after first a week of discussing future plans with Al, followed by an announcement to sell up but with an assertion that Al would be signed once the banks had sanctioned it, then comes silence. And more silence. Until eventually somebody mumbles there will be no appointment unless a prospective buyer strikes a deal.

    So thank heaven for Ed and the noise he makes, even if it is sometimes a bit hollow through lack of substance. No more silence of the Llambs, silence of the doldrums and drifting about like the Marie Celeste.
    Bring back the noise!
