The news yesterday on Newcastle was there was no news, after Wigan were defeated by Swansea 3-2 – which gives Newcastle some breathing room as far as relegation goes – but our lads still have to produce the goods in the last two games – which we have hardly done in the previous four games – getting only 2 points and scoring just one solitary goal – and conceding 10, and having two of our worst ever results at St. James’ Park. 🙁
Alan Pardew – press conference Thursday?
Newcastle fans are not happy that we have to depend on clubs like Wigan losing games for our club to avoid relegation – and it’s interesting that nobody from Newcastle made any statement at all about the Wigan result yesterday – even though it could be a relegation saver for Newcastle.
We expect Alan Pardew to give his news conference tomorrow for the QPR game – and there will enormous pressure on the team to perform well, and get a win, which could make us safe – and it will if Chelsea beat Aston Villa on Saturday.
We expect the Newcastle manager to say it’s up to his team to produce the goods now, and get us to safety.
If and when we are safe from relegation then the debate will start – it’s already started of course – about who is the right man to take Newcastle forward. Is it Alan Pardew or will Mike Ashley want to bring in another manager in the summer,
And we always thought David Moyes would be the perfect man to lead Newcastle, but he will be announced today as the new Manchester United manager, taking over from the retiring Alex Ferguson.
And as we said earlier today, we also expect there to be lots of comings and goings this summer in the transfer window on Tyneside.
We just cannot let a season like this happen again – it’s been a complete disaster for Newcastle in the Premier League – and coming just four years after our relegation in 2009, makes it even harder to take.
The fans have been taken through the wringer by Newcastle this season – fact.
