Newcastle May Not Replace Fired Coach

3:40 pm, Monday, February 10th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 280 Comments

Just a short three days after Joe Kinnear was finally sacked as Director of Football, our U21 coach Willie Donachie was also fired after allegedly striking U21 center-back Remie Streete in the dressing room.

Remie Streete – 19 year-old 6’2″ Newcastle defender

That was presumably because Streete had given away the penalty and Sunderland’s first foal in the 3-0 defeat at the Stadium of Light just two days after our senior side was humiliated at St. James’ Park for the second season in a row.

Tensions seem to have got to Willie and he was initially suspended, and then after his father Floyd – the former Wolves player – and Remie himself  met privately with manager Alan Pardew – the Newcastle manager had little choice but to fire the Scot.

“It was an unfortunate situation.” “We’ve lost Willie, who is a fantastic coach. That’s a blow to us.” “We’ve got people here to carry the flag until the end of the season – Joe Joyce, Dave Watson, Peter Beardsley, Steve Stone and John Carver.”  “We’ve got people to cover Willie’s loss.”

Remie was born in South Shields and he’s a bright prospect for Newcastle, and after all the goings on recently – selling Yohan and not replacing him, firing Director of Football Joe Kinnear after Ashley took eight months to realize what Newcastle fans knew last summer – he wasn’t cut out for the job – and then the firing of Willie Donachie last Thursday, it would be good if things on Tyneside settle down a little bit.

Willie Donachie – like Joe Kinnear – he’s gone

And maybe over the last 13 games of the season (unlucky for some), we can start winning a few games again and finish in the top eight – or even in the top seven this season.

Given where we are right now – that would be very good.

Here’s hoping.

    go an look up the loses v Man U and arsenal 4-3 and 7-3 I said then we played very well

    I honestly think there is something wrong in your head.

    we won 3-1 v west ham and like always we made very hard work of it, it took an injury time goal to kill them off,

    we play pretty football in our own half, where we have extra bodies,

    we have a loan striker with none to very little support and we shoot from 30 yards out a lot , mostly hitting the corner flag,

    I will not praise a game of football just because of a wonder goal if for 80 mins we have struggled

    it does my head in when I read people saying we played well against teams like Norwich when we get draw and they had the better chances , luck got you a point not good team play

    do you watch football ??? you do know that it lasts 90 mins ??? you do know that it is played over 2 halfs, you do know we are aloud in the other teams box

    Catchy
    “go an look up the loses v Man U and arsenal 4-3 and 7-3 I said then we played very well”

    That is the result of the all out attack you want to see,it did us great didn’t it?

    “we won 3-1 v west ham and like always we made very hard work of it, it took an injury time goal to kill them off,

    No,well done lads?,good 3 pts?

    “we have a loan striker with none to very little support and we shoot from 30 yards out a lot , mostly hitting the corner flag,”

    Did you not see Moussa’s chance he missed?,or Sammy’s near the end,when LDJ made a great run across Chelsea’s back 4 to set him up?,they were about 10 yds out at most and they both missed.

    “I will not praise a game of football just because of a wonder goal if for 80 mins we have struggled”

    It’s 3 pts for the team you support no matter how you get them

    “it does my head in when I read people saying we played well against teams like Norwich when we get draw and they had the better chances , luck got you a point not good team play”

    You are mental if you think Norwich had better chances,i can’t believe you say these things in public.

    See you in a few hours.

    you had a pop at me a few days back joining in with a couple ..Its happening to you now previous page ..see what it feels like ? your now calling the blog a place full of nutters ..

    You have to have a thick skin to survive on here pal .

    I was stirring the blog up in a deliberate act to get them all jumping about ,,they love a bit of an argument ..they follow it and then attack the initial stirrer in a pack .

    I sit here laughing my tits off ! I apply a bit of reverse ..a bit of Sigmund

    Its psychology applied and then sit back and watch the baying hounds

    This is what happens ..there are folks on here that watch and wait for an argument to develop ..they are usually the boring and uninteresting people ..blah blah s*ite patter ..they wait for some one to join in with against someone who is interesting and they have pang’s of jealousy against ..plenty of them on this blog . its so predictable and hilarious !

    I was accused of Xenophobia ..I could have said ..what and me with a French Missus !? but didn’t and got embroiled ..some of it was tongue in cheek ..some of it was right..but I pushed it and found some of the replies to my amusement ! I even had a Southern man in Texas having a POP ! ..this blog can be a bitch but its also amazing to see the reactions from our Members ..better rephrase that !

    So take it with a pinch of salt Mojo ..I did when you were having a pop at me ..that way you will have no bad thoughts when you step away from the keyboard !

    No animals were hurt in the writing of this .. An d I wish no ill on anyone on this blog ..Your all Newcastle United fans . May your God bless you all….HA !

    I think we finally have agreement, your answer to the question on the previous page, where you said that you’d take a loss, pardew sacked and us to win the rest of the games for the good of the team.

    that’s what catchy is saying

    <3 de-jong his movement and ability the way he creates space and vision not to mention his teamplay + he's not a greedy striker and plays for the team ^^

    cant wait till he gets some support in goofy and remy maybe even cisse then we may see what he has to offer in reguards to goals.

    pardew would rather go all out attack v the big teams and defend for his 1 point he starts with against the poorer teams in the league,

    your the type of kids that has no winners in school football because it hurts the losers feelings

    your the type of kid who never played the game but wanted too so u could join the popular kids,

    MrMojoRisin76

    The the question i put to you was,which was in the best interest of the club.

    That`s what every supporter wants which includes Rotonda,Catchy,Stuart etc

    So you would take the same option they would does that make you bad supporter too.

  • 25 MrMojoRisin76 // Feb 10, 2014 at 4:22 PM

    Sage
    That question was designed for me,if i had said the other option he would have probably accused me of not being a proper fan because it would have meant Pardew staying and us losing most of the games and that would not be the best for the club..I did answer honestly though,i hated Pardew’s appointment but he finished 5th and proved me wrong.If you want an explanation on what happened to us last season look at Swansea this season,and they signed more than 1 player to add to their European campaign.People saying Pardew was lucky when he finished 5th but this season has proved them wrong,he might have done it again if Jabba didn’t shat on his season.

  • 26 Markaccus // Feb 10, 2014 at 4:24 PM

    Daz.

    Trouble is, if a loss was garunteeing a change in manager, how could we be sure we would not end up with another budget option. I am sorry, but if it came to a choice between Pardew and someone like Dowie or Curbishley, i would rather stick with Pardew.

  • 27 Transfer Sage // Feb 10, 2014 at 4:25 PM

    mojo

    I personally don’t think pardew is a terrible manager, he gets us playing well at times just think his cautious nature and lack of desire to kill teams off hold him back a little.

    Last year he could have done better but Europe, injuries and not being backed in the summer really did make his job exceptionally difficult.

    My only point is that you say you chose that option as it’s best for the team, I agree. I just think that’s why catchy and others chose their option…it’s not an unjustified hatred of pardew, they just don’t rate him (whether that’s right or wrong is different).

    You couldn`t but you could also argue if you didn`t take the risk you might lose out.

    One of the biggest risks of our club was appointing Keegan first time round.

    No managerial experience but it paid off and we stayed up and even went to close to winning the Prem title

    Why so much anger? Just because someone disagrees with you? Online guy said you’ve got to be thick skinned to survive on here? I’m sorry? Is this the Somme? Or a war zone?

    Put your point forward, see what happens. Some people will agree. Some disagree. Some will totally ignore your comment. You will disagree with some people and tell them so, others you will agree with, others you will ignore.

    Angry people on here.

    Once again your talking without the proper facts,it’s not like i mindlessly accused him of not being a proper fan,i posted links yesterday that showed him and Rotonda going missing when we win,with him openly hoping we get beat before some games,with all his negative comments i asked him how he was supposed to be supporting this team,then i asked him the question
    .If you take Catchy’s name off his posts you would think a Mackem wrote them.

    Ibiza

    Response to you from an earlier question I just picked up. Not sure when you will see this either though…

    I didn’t see your original post regarding the legalities of criticising a former employee, but I did look it up properly afterwards. Funnily enough, what I found contradicted what several experienced businessmen thought at a conference I was at last week.

    Most of us were under the impression that it is illegal to give a negative reference, however that appears to be an urban myth. According to a respected UK lawyer, a reference must be “fair, accurate and true” but many firms will shy away from providing negative references to avoid the possibility of falling foul of one of these tests.

    For example if NUFC came out and said that JFK was fired for not signing the players that he was supposed to, JFK could potentially have a case against the club as the statement was unfair given the restrictions under which he was supposed to do his job. So the club (probably wisely) says nothing.

    KK won a case for constructive dismissal because of the legalities of contracts within football, I don’t think the club would want to have a similar case. Most likely the club came to an agreement with JFK and both signed non-disclosure agreements.

    Imho Pardew is the only manager who could continue to plod along under the tight constraints. Fat sam, Curbishley, Dowie AND the small pineapple would have us relegated with a net spend of either -35 or -45 Mil.

    I’ve said before that it would be useful to have ‘badges’ to know people’s areas of expertise. I’m not a lawyer, although I do generally have a good understanding of the law. It was also interesting that I had this conversation over dinner and several people involved in running their business or otherwise management/hiring of staff thought that it was illegal too. It’s a very common urban myth it seems!

    Although, actually, it’s a very safe myth to believe as it means companies avoid costly law suits and most of us assume that no reference or a terse reference is negative so we would just avoid hiring that person.

    It would take someone skilled to carefully word a negative reference and I think it’s best to just not bother.

    You’re making the assumption that transfer spend is the only way of measuring investment in the playing squad. Would you rather invest in signing 5 top players on £40kpw and total £10M in other fees (total £20M in Y1 and £10M each other year = £60M over 5 years) or 2 top players costing £15M each on £40kpw (total £34M in Y1 and £4M each other year = £60M over 5 years).

    I just want what is best for out club. For now I think it’s stability. We need someone to work with Ashley and we’re doing ok in the league.

    It may not be as exciting as the SJH days but constantly demanding that Pardew leaves is detrimental to the team and constantly demanding that Ashley leaves is like demanding that your next door neighbour moved out because you don’t like him.

    Many said Martinez now of Everton but were shot down.

    “He wouldn`t be any good always in a relegation battle with Wigan”

    Pardew has had a wealth of talent compared to Martinez but he managed to win a cup and has Everton playing some great football.

    It’s the simple fact that many of them would have been happy with one of those lot but we could be in an even worse position that we are now! I think the guy at Saints has done well but they’re benefitting from an excellent youth system that they’ve had for decades and also some very good signings. Imagine if the likes of Saylor, Shola and Sammy were good enough to be getting England caps, then think where we’d be! That’s not Pardew’s fault.

    It could be a lot worse…

    Exactly. And for the record, I’m more than happy to admit when I’m wrong – life is a learning experience after all!

    It’s the “fair” word that makes things difficult. Say you sacked a person because they didn’t do their job properly and they could point to the fact that they had a health problem or a marriage break-up and that it wasn’t fair to say that and to insinuate that the person wasn’t able.

    i do know where you are coming from, but every player at every team has the wages to considder over the length of the contract. I cant remember who posted it, but the teams who had the biggest net spend were all in tje top 6. We were bottom of this list, and we are in the top half pf the table. To me that shows that even a little more investment would have had us challenging for europe, posibly even UCL.

    Yes. But that’s going back to MA’s original mistake. He needed to take a back seat on football matters and appoint someone like Cortese or Levy (I say someone like rather than being able to poach them at the time) who could run the football side of things.

    I think you’ll find that both Everton and Arsenal are also right down near the bottom. And they didn’t have to contend with a relegation. Both of them have signed some bargains and Arsenal have a much bigger budget.

    The money hasn’t just disappeared from our club. Rather than using it to pay transfer fees, we’ve used it to pay wages and other fees. We’ve still invested in our squad regardless.

    Going backwards?

    Relegation – BACKWARDS
    Promotion – Forwards
    12th in PL – Forwards
    5th in PL – Forwards (overachieving)
    16th in PL – Backwards (underachieving)
    8th in PL – Forwards (about right for now)

    The way I see it, that’s 4 seasons of moving forward and 2 of moving backward in 6.

    You’re having a go at loanees now just because they aren’t on a permanent contract? So you wouldn’t be happy with Lukaku then? How about Ince or Zaha if they had been willing to rotate?

    Ambition isn’t just reflected by taking huge risks, going into loads of debt and hoping we get into the CL you know…

    i know it has not simply vannished, but wenger is recognised as a great manager, pardew is not in his league. Martinez is doing great at everton, who have established themselves (first under moyes) as a upper mid table side. Pardew and NUFC, despite recent results, and bigger constraints (cant really deny that), are still just about hanging on to the coat tails of everton. I think Pardew deserves at least some credit for that.

  • 97 ToonDarnSarf // Feb 10, 2014 at 5:23 PM

    Yes, Wenger is a top manager who would have left Arsenal years ago if they had been run the way that Shepherd did. Arsenal were already a very big club established in the PL when Wenger arrived and he had a very good relationship with the owner to help build the club into a true powerhouse. Same with Fergie at Man Utd.

    I definitely think that Pardew deserves credit for the way the club is doing this season but I don’t agree that he’s doing it in the face of his squad deteriorating. On MotD they were bemoaning the fact that Everton don’t have a goalscorer beyond Lukaku. They sold Jelavic to balance the books. Yet football fans up and down the country laud what Kenwright has done at Everton while NUFC fans slate Ashley for doing a very similar thing.

    Yes, there are things that Ashley has done that are just absolutely stupid but his attitude to the management of our club has been fine in my opinion and the attitude to transfers has been pretty good. Sure, there have been disappointing windows but also excellent ones.

    You just sound like a miserable old git to be honest.

    You could throw those negatives at me and I could throw positives back at you, but what is the point? You clearly approach your football with a glass half empty attitude.

    YES, we should have signed another striker in the summer
    YES, we should have replaced Cabaye this winter

    Man Utd should have signed a creative midfielder in the summer and a top defender this winter, Arsenal should have signed a top striker in either window, Spurs look to have wasted money on several players, Everton look short of a striker when Lukaku doesn’t play, Man City look vulnerable when Kompany doesn’t play etc. Every club has weaknesses, but why are you focussing on them?

  • 104 Markaccus // Feb 10, 2014 at 5:29 PM

    Yeah i can accept that point of view to an extent. We have had imo one excellent window, which was forced really (last jan) but ashley failed to make the most of it in summer. We could have done with 2 forwards and a cb at tbe time. We got one loan forward. This jan, we got the secon forward, still no cb and no cabaye replacement. Now even if this was jfks fault, ashley employed him. These are the mistakes he keeps making over and over. He said he had learned after the Wise incident. But no lol.

    I can handle weaknesses in the squad, these things occur at all clubs, but I don’t agree with the incompetence by which things are run. Cabaye wants to go? Ok, let him go. DEPENDENT on us signing a replacement.

    I don’t think we needed a CB unless we were going to sell one to be honest. We needed a striker and another attacker in the summer. We’ve now got them both, but we’re short a playmaker (the most crucial position for the way we play).

    You’re nuts and I stand by my comment that you sound like a miserable old git. 50 years to recover? Recover to what??? We haven’t won anything since 1969, we were a complete mess until SJH took over and our only glory years since we last won a trophy would be under SBR (world class manager) and KK (maverick with huge investment).

    I love this club (as I know you do), but get real for what this club actually is. If the only way you can enjoy supporting this club is if we’re getting into the CL and challenging for the cups every years, then you’re better off jumping ship. Money bags like City, Chelski and Man Utd will normally take 3 of the top 6 slots and there are several other clubs who believe they’re within their rights to think they should challenge for the other 3 slots. Why do you think we have a right to be there?

    Ashley has made some huge mistakes with the way he’s run the club and the way there’s a disconnect between club and fans but don’t be drawn into the trap of thinking everything stinks.

    It’s a mad situation but I’d say we have 2-3 players that just look completely disinterested
    Whether that’s because there spells here haven’t gone how they thought, don’t get on with manager/owner/team mates/tea lady I just don’t know

    The article was published on March 10, 2012, when we were lying sixth, and still with in with a shout of a Champions League place.
    Yet there are warnings there for us to wind their necks in about Europe.

    Pardew said. “Mike has made it quite clear this club needs to wipe its nose. We can’t invest above our income. We can’t compete with Manchester City.” Llambias went further, “We are punching above our weight at the moment, but now it’s a case of pushing forward. This season we targeted tenth or above. Next season it was going to be eighth – it still is.”

    As it turned out, we went into the last game of the season just three points off the third Champion’s League spot. How very different it might have been if we hadn’t been inexplicably thumped by Wigan in late April, and having stunned Chelsea, played like we had nothing to play for against City and Everton.

    So we had that near run with the Champions League. Not because it took investment TDS, but because we got the POINTS.

    Clearly, the management had to decide after the season whether to push on to exploit this near miss. Or stick to the plan.
    We all know now what they did.

    I agree with your points, at some point you need to make a decision on a player or players rather than have them warm the bench every game, Its a false dawn relying on Remy when you have a player under contract (Cisse) and a player that wants a contract at Newcastle (LDJ) Its a difficult one……

    I agree mate it’s a tricky situation
    All were really doing is showcasing Remy and Cisse is under contract
    The problem is when ever he has played this season he’s looked very poor
    Having said that there nout to play for this season so no better time to experiment with line up’s

    De jong has said he`d like to stay so i`d ditch Remy to the bench and use Cisse or Goofy alongside him if we go two up top.

I answewed your question @ 62 and because of my answer you abused me and said i wasnt a proper fan . Then your comment’ @150 –Markaccus
    That is my point,i could understand the fans saying they chose to get beat 2-0 if they defo knew he would get the sack but i gave the choice of a win and he keeps his job but they chose the loss’ – you are saying now ‘ YOU UNDERSTAND’ the fans saying theyd rather get beat if pards got the sack which is exactly what i said in the first place. hahaha . your head is on the wrong way mate . if your nose is running and your feet smell , your probably upside down as well mate – get a grip bonny lad

    They changed the rules at the start of this season so retrospective action could be taken even if the referee saw it. So you are completely wrong. Can’t stand cynicism.

    ‘Anal Warped’ is an anagram for Alan Pardew, or vice versa.

    It just indicates further that he’ll take anything from his obese boss before he does the decent thing and walks. Instead, he clings on for dear life knowing he’s out of his depth and in the slipstream of Graham Carr’s players, long shotting him to points.

    It would be interesting had he not signed that appallingly long contract, whether he would resign, Ashley would let him go, or none of the above.

    After all, Ashley got a mediocre manager in to fulfill his mediocre football ambition in order to maximise his own profits via advertising exposure.

    With SD profits soaring, he probably won’t be gone for a few years yet, and that really is a painful thought. Unless he can get out to piggy back onto Rangers. Sooner the better.

    Londoners,..and they have to be Near Wembley so as to convene at a moments notice ..remember how fast they got together over Remy at Norwich ? we had another game coming up fast so they got the meeting in really quick to stop Remy playing .

    We really should Know who they are as customers of FA football.

    given the amount of argument going on at the minute on what newcastle would be like without pardew and how good the current team is, it’s seems to be getting harder and harder to avoid doing a post without abuse.

    we might all think that if we were to get a quality manager we will start challenging for top 4.
    how many of you actually follow england because they have shown in recent years that even quality managers with very good records will not be able to improve a team when the squad is getting shorter every year which is the problem with the newcastle squad at the minute.

    mojo catchy and TS
    before arguing about why fans can or can’t hope for a loss if it means the manager gets sack, what you should think about first is what does an owner care about more than anything.

    what really causes owners to sack a manager is not the bad results themselves it’s because the owner himself has allowed that manager to spend so much money in the transfer window.
    chelsea sack lots and city have sacked a few, yet arsenal didn’t seem to fussy on wenger’s recent seasons and moyse has seems to be safe from the sack too despite him being 7th at the minute.

    now that doesn’t mean to say that if a team doesn’t spend much he will be safe for sure as their is some who get sacked for bad results alone, all it is really is that when their was little funding the manager has the chance of excuses but when an owner has taken the gamble their is never an excuse for bad form.

  • 256 Novocastrian66 // Feb 10, 2014 at 9:10 PM

    It’s nice that Pardew has just done Moyes’s team talk for him when we play them. I wish he would keep his gob shut at times.
    Man Utd’s worst team in a generation and we’re delighted that we may finish above them, although unlikely. Not because we have improved to their stratospheric level, but because they’ve deteriorated to ours.
    Aye I’m delighted with that me.

    santon and haidarra to give the width when in possesion.
    allow arfa to adopt cabayes role to play in gouffran or de jong with anita and sissoko covering.

    Stuart – you appear to have the fake Adobe Flash player installer and redirect virus.

    I don’t know how to solve your laptop issue, but lots of people seem to have ran into some dubious infestations on here and I don’t mean the Pardew fan club (only joking gents ;-)

    But seriously, there does seem a genuine problem with dodgey pages or viruses on here from time to time. Ed…?

    Ruddy was behind the whole virus thing apparently. Trying to get people over to his own blog.

    Just a little rumour I’ve heard.

    Just download an ad blocker, worked for me.

  • 270 Thump // Feb 10, 2014 at 10:18 PM

    As I clicked on the download , a message came up from my anti virus ( Macafee)

    That right there is your problem. A computer without McAfee is as secure as a computer with McAfee. Download AVG or Avast! (both free programs and are highly recommended) if you really want to.

    Now, because you have a virus, download and run this on your laptop: https://www.malwarebytes.org/

    Truthfully, Malwarebytes (and ESET’s NOD32) is probably the only two anti virus programs that I’d be comfortable paying for.

    BandB……. Just logged on and must say that you summarised both the potential and the message shown in that 2012 swissramble assessment very succinctly.

    History clearly confirms that whilst Ashley is a risk taker at times, he certainly keeps his powder dry as far as Newcastle United. He had a close shave last year when he had to spend in January and we just avoided relegation.

    I just wish he’d gamble on progress rather than damage limitation and steady state.

    Hey ho.

    wow a whole day arguing over a hypothetical question lol

    but wat i will say is catchy said on here that because fans come on and celebrate a win we’re all happy clappers and know nothing about football!

    sorry sage but i don’t get how a guy that doesn’t take any and i mean any!! joy out of a win or seemingly anything about this club, you can say he’s a fan and its not just a couple of times but for aslong i’ve been on here which is over 3 years

    this is a guy who took no joy in us coming 5th!
    and said he’d have fat sam instead of pardew!
    come on mate!?

    infact i’ve come too the conclusion that the reason he isn’t on here after we win or are doing well is because he’s on another teams blog when there not doing well!! :)

  • 274 Belfast // Feb 10, 2014 at 11:03 PM

    Ah Catchy, fantastic bloke, salt of the earth.

  • 275 manxpie // Feb 10, 2014 at 11:08 PM

    belfast lol aye in another dimension i’m sure and did you know your name was an anagram of fat sleb!!

  • 276 Belfast // Feb 10, 2014 at 11:12 PM

    Ha very good, didn’t no that.

    You’re probably better refusing to speak to him, or he’ll just want to argue with you all day everyday.

  • 277 manxpie // Feb 10, 2014 at 11:19 PM

    belfast i was only goin on wat laurent decided earlier about making anagrams out of pardew i apologise now to ya for wat sleb actually means and i didn’t know beforehand!! and didn’t know sleb was an actual word used!!

    on catchy i was just surprised sage was sticking up for him tbh when everything he says points to (bein a bit of a knob) but also not a fan of this club at all and thats all mojo was really trying to point out!

  • 278 stuart no9 // Feb 10, 2014 at 11:22 PM

    Thanks for that chaps . Let’s see what happens !

  • 279 manxpie // Feb 10, 2014 at 11:28 PM

    stuart i get that my updates are crytical and i have to download the latest adobe but never do because i have to download mcafee too
    and it doesn’t effect me laptop wat so ever so my advice and i know fusk all about computers is get rid of mcafee i’m on avast (i pay for it but only 20 odd quid and its been brilliant)
