The game at Hull City on Saturday is turning out to be an important game for both John Carver and Newcastle United, and we need to take something out of this game.
Lee Charnley and Mike Ashley
There is a real danger at Newcastle that we’ll go the way of last season at this time, and start losing too many games.
Last January we had sold our best player Yohan Cabaye to PSG for £20M and didn’t replace him, and this January we have allowed manager Alan Pardew to leave for Crystal Palace for around £4M in compensation, and then found out we cannot replace him with a suitable candidate until the summer.
That should not have been a surprise to people like Lee Charnley, and it may put the club in some jeopardy (again?) of being dragged into a relegation fight, if we cannot start winning games soon.
Do the people running Newcastle ever think these things through before letting personnel leave in January for money – it certainly doesn’t look like it.
We don’t have the points on the board that we had last year at this time, when we had 36 points from 22 games – 9 points more than we have this season.
Newcastle and Hull have both lost their last three games, and Hull haven’t even scored a goal – at least we scored one goal against Southampton last time out. 😀
Newcastle are 11th in the Premier League with 27 points, and Hull are 18th on 19 points, so a Hull win would not be good on Saturday.
We hope that Newcastle can get back to winning ways – and there’s a lot of hope in that statement, but hey, maybe Newcastle can shock us on Saturday and play well and also win the game?
But the higher-ups at the club have to stop putting the team in jeopardy almost every January, in the name of making money.
We will lose an awful lot of money if we are relegated again, and it will happen when we look comfortable in January as we do now, and decide not to reinforce the squad. 🙁
And who knows, we may even be daft enough to let Moussa Sissoko leave before Monday night.
And if that happens would that really be a big surprise?
We don’t seem to have enough savvy experienced people running Newcastle United these days.
