News today that Nile Ranger will be disciplined because of the Twitter comments he made after the game on Saturday afternoon, when he criticized fans who were booing manager Alan Pardew, and said if they only were to boo the club then they shouldn’t attend the games – or words to that effect.
Nile Ranger – Newcastle not happy with his comments
But of course the fans have every right in the world to boo if they feel fit, and they pay the money and Sam Allardyce always said it was their right to boo him, and Sam got a lot of booing towards the end of his short reign at Newcastle.
The way the 21 year has shamed himself and the club over the last eighteen months or so, criticism coming from the London boy is hard to take, to say the least.
The Newcastle Journal is reporting the Newcastle Board are to look at club policies and see if he broke any of them – and if he did then he’ll be cautioned and probably fined – but the Board are not happy with his tweets.
Nile is ready to be sold in the summer, and he has no future at Newcastle, and he wouldn’t have even been on the bench yesterday, if we had managed to sign Loic Remy last week.
It was also interesting that Alan Pardew said he would have liked to have brought on another striker in the second half, but he didn’t have that option available – but Nile was on the bench.
There will be a huge clear out of Newcastle players in the summer, whether we go down or not – and if we can offload this lad – Newcastle will only jump at the chance.
This is what Ranger tweeted after the game:
“Certain fans need to not come and support the team… coming out to boo us… stay at home… don’t need your boos… say no more!” “To all the fans. You are not forced to buy season tickets. Or pay our wages. Please remember that….”
“If you are loyal fans… be with us… when we are out there on the field. Be the 12th man… Don’t come and boo. That ain’t going to help anyone.”
One could also read those comments as showing that at least Nile cares about the club, but players are paid huige wages, as is the manager, and adverse criticism is part of their job.
