Newcastle May Not Replace Fired Coach


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

    “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

    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.

    I love it when you answer , you sound more clueless every day, you and manx

    to you football is about tables , I get it

    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,

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    I hope we go for Chicharito in the summer. He is obviously not happy at ManU and would come with a point to prove. Also still young.

    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.

    Where’s the levity? Where’s the brevity?

    Without John Tudors witicisms this place would be a turgid read.

    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.

    It would be another budget solution. We already have the best budget solution.

    There is a reason Dowie and Curbishley are not running Chelsea or Arsenal…

    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.
