Newcastle had done so well last season when we finished 5th top and were back in Europe, but since early November, our results have been simply a living nightmare for fans, and in our last 13 league games we have lost 10 and picked up only 7 points and are 5th bottom of the league and even Southampton have picked up points on us and with their 0-0 home draw last night to Everton are 2 points head of us with a better goal difference.
Montpellier President Louis Nicollin – bad mouths Newcastle
He looks like a clown
So after Saturday’s calamitous 2-1 loss at home to reading relegation looks a definite possibility.
But with the terrible loss of form, Newcastle’s standing in football has also taken a hit, and it looks like we can sign 23 year-old Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa today – which will be good news – but that hasn’t stopped Montpelier President Louis Nicollin from issuing a statement that is disrespectful to Newcastle United at best.
This is what he said:
“If he is a donkey, that is not my fault, but I think that his manager has played a big role.” “Newcastle is not really a good choice.” “He will look to move to another club next year.”
So when does a President of a football club get to slang another football club off after selling a player to them?
This is not an act of a classy person – but it also shows how Newcastle’s standing is dropping so quickly in the world of football.
It’s all so sad.
