Dedicate Liverpool Game To Hughton – It’s His Birthday

We know the club have yet to appoint a new manager at Newcastle United, but this article is meant to be a message to the Newcastle United squad and specifically to those players who will represent Newcastle against Liverpool on Saturday afternoon.

Please dedicate the Liverpool game to this manChris Hughton

When Chris Hughton kept his players in the dressing room after the game on Sunday, we were 95% certain that would spark a ferocious response from our players on Saturday afternoon, when they meet the ever improving Liverpool side.

It just so happen to be Chris  Hughton’s 52nd birthday on Saturday too, so what better than to dedicate their performance on Saturday to their former manager.

They should start that game like the proverbial steam train, and play their hearts out as a demonstration of thanks and support to their former manager.

Dedicate their performance to everything that Chris Hughton did for the Newcastle United club, during his very short stay of 16 months in charge – even though he has now left the building.

Sounds good to us.

    Dedicate their performance to Chris Hughton

    We’ve lost to Stoke, Blackburn, Blackpool, drew against Fulham and Wigan and we expect that somehow the squad is going to go out on Saturday and put in a performance?????

    If they couldn’t do it against those teams WITH Hughton as manager how disrespectful would it be to turn it on against Liverpool (now that hes been sacked 🙂 Begs belief some of the stories being flung about here now Ed.

    I think this is the biggest disrespect you could have.

    Turn it on now that you’re sacked because we couldn’t be @rsed while you were in charge.

    God you’d think Hughton had died if the players were that much on his side they wouldn’t have played so badly against Blackpool, Stoke, Blackburn, Fulham, Bolton or West Brom. 1 point from those games against teams we would have expected to get at least 12 has contributed to Hughton getting the sack. The players must take a big proportion of the blame.

    Players must definitely take some of the blame but Hughton shouldn’t have been sacked in the first bloody place

    Ashley still has time. He can still admit his mistake, ring up Hughton, apologise for his rash decision and ask him back on.

    Any decent man would do this. Of course, that might be asking a lot of Ashley.

    I’m resigned to the fact that it’s going to be Alan Pardew now he’s cheap he’s cockney he’s a puppet on a string who’s liable to piss the fans off.

    Perfect for Ashley. All I want for Christmas is a takeover (and Jessica Alba)

    New manager is surpose to bring us forward not backwards.

    Arent we going for the Arsenal Style of management?

    Ok, get someone who would play football like them then.

    Both the Alans are NOT of this style of coaching.

    Pls do not be even be interested in them, get somboday eles i will even accept Frank Rijkaard.

    As a long time newcastle fan i am absolutely disgusted by ashleys recent actions. Just when i thought he may have learned his lesson he pulls this shite! I don’t care if we get jol oneil or even mourinio coz i tell you one thing, i will never again set foot in sjp whilst that fat paracite owns our club, he has made a mug out of us for too long now & enoughs enough! If we want this disease out of our club we have to do one simple thing… Don’t go to the games! An empty stadium would force his hand & make him sell. But unfortunately our greatest strength is also our greates weakness, we’re to dam loyal! You could play 11 pissheads from the bigg market & the toon army would still turn out in force to watch em! If we were owned by satan himself we’d still go! But for once we need to do the unthinkable & boycott our beloved club, drastic tines call for drastic measures & we need to get mike ashley out of our club. As long as we keep lining his pocket he’ll stick around dragging nufc through the mud & laughing at every single one of us whilst he does it.

    Well I’m disgusted with this article.

    Go out on Saturday and dedicate the game to Hughton.

    If the players had played well enough for Hughton and got max points against Wigan, Blackpool, Blackburn, Fulham he would still be in a job.

    Dedicate the game, thats got to be the biggest reverse compliment you could ever give.

    Well I really am warming to the idea of having Jol in charge but Hoddles odds are tumbling by the minute…

    10/1 – worth a few quid I tell ya.

    Not saying I want him but there’s connections there and as some people have already said, Ashley loved him when he was a little fat boy, bet he still loves him now he’s a big fat boy.

    Feeling sick. BBC sport reports that Pardew/Arsh/Llambastad are all mates and had nights at the London casino together. Seems they all met up again 10 days ago to discuss Pardews appointment, if this is true and it happens we got to make it so uncomfortable for Pardew that he quits, the players led by Nolan and Sol should go on strike.

    Told you not to disregard Hoddle on previous threads, Arsh would be orgasmical if the son of god came. Can only say better than Pardew/Curbishly tho`!

    I suppose Hoddle fits the bill for Ashley…Hoddle has an academy in Spain giving players a second chance….it’s a win win situation for Ashley and Hoddle. Ashley gets cheap players from Hoddle’s academy and it’s good PR for Hoddle’s academy.

    Hughton’s work will not be forgotten, but we must move on. The new manager needs to be backed to the hilt if we are to survive this season. However, if it is Pardew, then I’ll need some motivation in getting behind him.

    empty stadium. Great moral booster for the team and you think relegation will get rid of Ashley? staying up and giving Ashley something to sell will get rid of him.

    CT – so your saying boycotting and strikes are the way to lead Newcastle United into the future is the way forward, check yourself… If you run a business your gonna make decisions that make a lot of people unhappy i really don’t agree with the fat lads decisions but bankrupting the club is not the way to go to call our German counterpart a TIT is a little harsh

    I’ve heard Ketsbaia mentioned a few times, wouldn’t be very happy with him coming in. He’s managing Georgia, I normally wouldn’t believe it but heard it a few times and if Fat Mike can employ JFK than this seems normal!

    Trust me, a Platinum ticket for L`pool game is ÂŁ60 and rest of stadium pro rata, there will be no need for strikes b`cos the shit that will be served up by Pardew/ Curbs/O`neil will empty the stadium. Be lucky to get 20,000.
    At least with Jol we might have a chance, last season with Ajax he had a plus goal difference of 84, next best was half that.

    Darlo, he`s making All his customers(US) unhappy, he`s in danger of bankrupting the club himself if we don`t continue to spend.
    3x months ago we were starting to once again be everyones 2nd team, now wer`e a joke! AGAIN
    By the way i am a successful business man with companies around the world, and it wasn`t by pissin all my customers off.
    Arsh is in danger of self fullfilling prophecy and I want to stop him completely ruining what Hoots achieved against all odds!!

    Didn’t mean you need to pis5 all ya customers off and i didn’t want to cause offence mate. I am sure that boycotting the club because of the owner will only cause negative effects surely we have learnt that lesson.

    Im glad someone is doing well in this economic climate because i have just graduated and i was struggling to find employment everyone after experience rather than qualifications nowadays so if you have any jobs going in your multi-national company then i would be happpy to send you my CV lol…

    You tell me what you think we can do to get rid of Cashley and i will quite happily hop on board.

    Cashflow is king–stop or reduce it ASH is screwed, he either tops it up himself or forced to sell at huge loss but with new austerity measures coming in any top up will have to be written off as it can`t appear as a directors loan on the balance sheet under the new rules.

    get a grip lads. 2 points out of 13. The leagues there for the taking this year and we’re missing big chances.

    Ashley doesnt trust Chris to spend his money. Hoots was a nice guy and did ok. We’ll spend in January no doubt, where that moneys coming from we can only hope its not carrol but beyond that we are getting rid before we get into trouble rather than after.

    We will get a better tactician in even if it is one of the alans. hoots had no plan b. he bought well for the championship but we’re back in the big leagues now. If Jol comes in its a massive upgrade, anyone else, a minor upgrade.

    by “the leagues there for the taking” i do not mean we’ll win it btw, i simply think aiming to just survive isnt enough, particularly if fat ash wants to spend.
