While we don’t want to over-react to the poor display and poor result today against Southampton at home, we are on a very poor run and that is our seventh defeat in the last nine games and we have conceded 22 goals in the process.
We’ve taken only 4 points from the last 21 points available, and we have no head coach, and we’re in the bottom half of the table 4 points above Crystal Palace but with a worse goal difference. 🙁
Newcastle are like a ship adrift in the ocean at the moment with no direction and it showed today, and it must be very difficult for the players in these times of uncertainty – they know they will be getting a new boss – but don’t know when and don’t know who it is.
Some leadership is needed from those at the top – namely Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley and they cannot stay silent and say nothing in the current situation.
We think the players have been put into a bad situation, and it’s the management of the club at the top where the problem lies.
Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley need to show some leadership – and start communicating with both the players and the fans.
It’s becoming obvious we need a new coach brought in and while we have every respect for John Carver – he’s a good assistant manager but not head coach material for Newcastle United.
And if Newcastle cannot appoint the coach they want in until the end of the season, it may be good to get somebody in over the rest of the season – like Tim Sherwood or Glenn Hoddle or some other experienced coach who can take over the reigns through the end of the season.
While we are still around 8 points above the drop zone – after what happened last season – we cannot be sure and we need to start picking up some points very soon.
Leaving the Newcastle ship adrift in the ocean any longer than one or two weeks could be suicidal, and some coach needs to be brought in.
It’s up to owner Mike Ashley and particularly Managing Director Lee Charnley – to start doing their jobs.
