Only Newcastle Could Manage To Accomplish This

We know it was a surprise, in fact a big surprise, but John Carver did have some good news yesterday, and while both Rolando Aarons and Siem de Jong will not be available for the game at Anfield on Monday night, they are back in full training and could even feature in our next home game against Tottenham.

Siem de Jong – could be back soon

94% of our readers think we will lose at Anfield and suffer our fifth defeat in a row, so if there’s ever a time that the team can shock us all – it’s Monday night in another game being broadcast live around the world.

Rolando Aarons and Siem de Jong are both good players, although we have our doubts about whether Rolando can be fully fit soon, and the very last thing we want is for that hamstring of his to go yet again.

But if Rolando and Siem can start playing again say in the last five games of the season – they have class and could help us a lot.

The relegation teams will be looking at the plight of Newcastle right now,  and think that if they can make 35 points they could finish above Newcastle this season, which is what Sunderland’s new manager Dick Advocaat will be telling his players.

People say the chances of Newcastle going down are minuscule – and they are probably right – but that’s only because the other clubs below will keep not winning (they need wins not draws), and therefore not get the 9 points (or whatever) necessary to catch Newcastle.

However, if there was ever a club who could manage to get relegated, given our good position at the end of last year, it’s Newcastle United.

That’s what still worries us.

    Why do people keep saying our chances of going down are minuscule?

    We’ve been dropping like a stone for months, we’ve been in relegation form for 18months the squad and coach are unfit for purpose.

    It’s 50/50 to me, I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t get another point.

    Things look alarmingly similar to the year fatty got us relegated, we should be ok we should be ok, wtf happened.

    Relying on other teams to be worse than us is begging for trouble.

    I don’t know about anybody else but if NUFC turn up at Anfield put in a performance and get some sort of result I’ll be furious.

    After not bothering their arses for months if they suddenly put a shift in there’ll be he’ll to pay IMO.

    hibbit/ beermonkey,
    hang on are we saying mr bishop and our salad dodging duo have hatched a plan that would risk the careers of both a promising young player and another who only went out in the rain last week for the first time in months just to try and put down a stay away protest from fans who have had enough?
    oh the very thought … i mean look at the fine track record of injury management …
    i can see the carver interview after the liverpool game ….
    “yes played off the park like not a shot on goal unitl 80 mins like but by then we were chasing the game at 3 nil down like but hey anyway the next home game is massive for us it means we can like secure our place in the premier league for next year like and with colo siem and rolando back we will see more of the unshackled free flowing tikka takka i have been telling you all i coach into these lads like i did when we were the entertainers n that ” mike turned off …. “how was that keith? ok?”

    I asked a valid question last night:

    What more can Ashley “strip” from the club? I can’t think of mucnh

    Are we at our bare bones now? It’s an interesting time. Investment is clearly needed. Is Ashley prepared to build again?
    Wish I had the answers but I’m not prepared to believe the club’s promise of jam tomorrow.
    The Chrony is clearly becoming the club’s mouthpiece again, didn’t take them long.

    So it’s yet another reporter from the chronicle who’s been told of the clubs plans by Charnley. Why or why don’t they tell the fans in a official statement?? Why the big secret,tell your paying customers would be a good idea….yes !

    Relegation is the only thing that will affect Ashley,we are watching substandard football so does it really matter what league we are playing in if you know we are going to get beat.Playing in the Championship means we should win some games and see some goals, so all you Happy Clappers who turn up at ST James Park and pay£35+ to watch us get beat,no entertainment value, no goals, what would you rather be watching?
    So the Fans might be happy but Ashley won`t!!!!!!

    hmm am i the only one who’s spotted the “ashley has promised me investment in the team” comment ?

    and our manager next season is (drum roles) carver.

    so our starting 11 players are;

    players to keep are;

    rest can go but quality needs to come in.

    all thats left is the fans dignity and i think he is proberbly doing an audit on that as we speak to see if thats a saleable asset.
    the thing that gets me is the line that is used by a lot ed included that he is a brilliant businessman etc and that our books have never been so healthy etc etc.
    the fact our profits are at 18 mil and turnover its highest ever .. but as we are comparing it too years before his tenure.
    if we actually took away the massive sky money we,d be running at a loss with less “commercial revenue ‘ due to fact we cant sell ad space as he takes it for sd and zero revenue from kit sales etc.again as he cleans up there too.
    so i wish ed would stop with this our books have never looked so good because of mike shi@@.
    walking around sydney if i ever saw a fellow Geordie in his shirt i,d always say hello .. walking through darling harbour last weekend i saw a lad with his brand new home shirt wonga on the front and just thought “what were you thinking buying that you twat”

    Only Newcastle could manage to announce two prime players returning and have the fans immediately think ‘Its a con’. What a state we are in. PR girl Wendy needs to take a serious career review because she’s seriously dropped the ball.

    I’m sick of everyone mentioning Aarons as if he is going to return and make a difference to the team.

    Sure the kid is class and has done really well when he has played, but he has barely played at all! He is just a kid and is not our saviour.

    And De Jong has played what… 2 premier league games? Its going to take him 6 months to adapt… and thats if he doesn’t turn out like his brother.

    The players we are relying on are the players that lost so effortlessly to the Mackems.

    one fine day, Ashley’s managed to squeeze an extra £9 million profit from the extra £30 mil plus turnover with no apparent extra overheads.
    Clearly he’s a business genius on those figures?

    Can we have a vote on this site asking the question.
    Championship ,winning some games and scoring goals and some excitement or Premier League,no goals,getting humiliated all the time and a library for a stadium.
    What do the Fans really want??

    Liverpool away with our current crew is a horrible thought! It’s just a question of how many!

    What a crying shame; all that money and no class 🙁

    I don’t think you need to worry about them putting in a performance! 5-0 to the scousers at least! And to think I used to have blind faith in the Lads
