Harry Redknapp is usually complimentary to Newcastle United, but he also has a strange habit of telling the truth, and today he is saying that Newcastle at Loftus Road on Saturday, 16th May, the second last game of the season, is a great fixture for QPR, because Newcastle are doing nothing.
Harry Redknapp – Newcastle are doing nothing
Juts like two years ago when we were struggling with relegation, we played at QPR in the second last game of the season, and after going behind to a Loic Remy penalty early in the first half, we came back and won the game 2-1, even though Rob Elliot got himself sent off late in the second half, and in came super-cool Steve Harper to help hold onto the lead and a valuable 3 points.
That was just less than two years ago and this is what Redknapp has said about Newcastle on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT:
“QPR have got to play Newcastle at home and if you could pick anyone to play at the moment, you would take Newcastle. They are doing nothing. It is a great fixture for QPR.”
QPR have to start picking up some wins if they are to survive this year, and the only problem is that a better time for QPR to meet Newcastle is right now – when we have Papiss Cisse and Fab Coloccini out suspended – and who knows we may even have Siem de Jong and Rolando Aarons back from injury by May – and there is also time for some of our players to wake up.
Or else be criticized so much by the fans and the press as being wimps, that the players actually start giving 100% for the team, and even start earning their money.
What a twist that would be.
Maybe one of the problems John Carver is having is he’s being too soft and too nice with the players, when what they really need is a big kick up the behind.
Whatever they really need – John at the moment is not providing it.
Newcastle at the moment are little less than a disgrace – with our squad having been decimated by poor planning and frugal money-management by owner Mike Ashley – and of course injuries and suspensions.
So it’s now up to the players and the coaches to pull Newcastle out of this terrible mess we are in.
We must stay above 18th place, and to do that we have to stop losing all of our games.
And to think Newcastle once used to have a decent side.
That’s right isn’t it?
