In our poll we put up yesterday, with over 1100 votes in – Newcastle fans think the main reason we are in the mess we are at the moment is because of a lack of investment in the club last summer, and the failure to bring in more than one player (Vurnon Anita) to Tyneside.
LLambias and Ashley - fans point the finger at these two
Here are the results of our poll so far, and you still have time to vote if you haven’t already done so.
And while a number of our readers are pointing to Alan Pardew for not getting the best out of the players he has available, only 12% think that’s the main reason we are struggling so much this season.
The second major reason is that some of our best players are not playing anywhere near the form they showed last season, and that’s a concern.
Of course all four reasons play some part in Newcastle’s demise this season, but the main one seems to be the lack of new players arriving in the summer.
We’ll see if Derek Llambias and Mike Ashley can correct the situation next month.
