No More Points For Newcastle This Season – Michael Owen – Video


Michael Owen on BT Sport has said he cannot see Newcastle getting one more point in the league this season and if there were still 10 games to go instead of five – Newcastle would be relegated.

And the pundits discuss if Newcastle could bring in another coach – but it’s too late now with just 5 games to go – we’ll just have to hope the teams beneath us don’t start doing something crazy like Leicester have been doing recently – and start winning games.

The way John Carver and our players should look at this is to prove Michael Owen dead wrong and go out and beat Swansea on Saturday at St. James’ Park.

Comments welcome.

    TS,I’m disappointed in bills, he seemed at least a man that would stick to his guns but he disappeared after claiming that Mikey would prove us all wrong one January. Fair enough he said he had health problems but he started told you so ing it after that six game streak we went on, only to disappear without trace now that it’s been proved without doubt that Mikey is a wrong un. He could at least come on here and fight his battles withoyt going on about how sh1t we were thirty years ago.

    and that’s what makes it annoying, players like owen jump ship when we went down and players like jonas gutierrez who yes is getting old and not as good he used to be stuck with us and still gives his all even after everything hes been through, and now he speaks out for our cause and gets dropped, disgraceful club rotten to the core.

    This blog is contaminated by people with very dubious personal agendas.

    To progress with our aim of resurrecting the passion and pride in our club, these undesirables have to be recognised and shamed into leaving us alone!!!!

    Owen is the best example of all that is wrong with the game and many players currently.
    Take the money and run syndrome.
    Just an irritant.

    Owen was ok for me, he played well for us until his injury, he lost his pace what was a major part of his game and when he cam back he constantly had little injuries, can’t be easy to stay motivated what that happens.

    I guess, never know somebody’s circumstances though, Bills could be in a bad way or simply lost faith in Ashley and didn’t fancy taking all the flack.

    As for Blackley I can’t figure him out. I’ve posted several times what I hope the boycott will cause but every time he ignores my comments when they are more solid/difficult to rebuke and targets others.

    Seems a bit of a wind up but also think the guy believes what he is saying, seems to enjoy the arguments but isn’t arguing for the sake of it. If that makes sense, much worse posters on here who refuse to debate anything.

    I agree we all have the right to our own opinion, but to have a pre meditated agenda to antagonise fellow bloggers and cause friction just for the sheer hell of it seems very negative.

    If people want a row for the sake of it , then that’s a fix they should seek elsewhere.

    It is a blinding piece of writing. Especially this.

    “every absent fan has reached a point where logic has overtaken romantic notions of support. By placing a value on everything, he’s forced people to evaluate NUFC in those terms – and conclude it’s not worth it.”

    agree betty,im still trying to work out what blackley’s point is,one comment he is slatting ashley for the way he is running the club,then the next comment he is slatting protester for wanting change to the way ashley runs the club.

    I’ve said it myself to him, the protests/boycotts may not make a blind bit of difference, but if they carry on and people stop coming, we get less TV games and sell less merchandise then the profit will slowly drip away and he might have to put money in to balance the books.

    Doing nothing will not make him leave quicker, will have a 0% chance of speeding up change. Protesting/etc might make little difference but even a 1% chance is better than 0%.

    And ultimately it shows him and the world that fans are not mugs willing to put up with deliberate rubbish from the top. We accept genuine mistakes but not a bloke who clearly has no interested in learning from his.

    Exactly. If people think there are better ways I am all for hearing them, I just can’t see how not turning up will have a negative effect. The team have been useless in front of full houses in most games.

    The problems aren’t lack of support, it’s lack of leadership in the boardroom, with the management staff and even on the pitch.

    Nothing is well organised to maximise either financial or playing potential, it’s always just enough to keep our head above water whilst making a comfortable profit.

    Evening Gents (and ladies) – earlier today a poster (I think it was Lindisfarne) suggested a good protest would be to take your seat late. I really think this is a good idea as I think a lot of supporters would be willing to do this. A near empty ground for, say, the first 10 minutes would be very effective and then take your seat in time for the 17th minute applause.

    Right
    Despite being totally crap I think we will get at least a point against Swansea which should be enough to save us .

    The word is that Ashley will spend in the summer ( he must know he has to or get relegated).

    I am encouraged by the way the media have got on our case at last and Ashley is looking a bit it a tw@t now.

    Things are changing I have the feeling but he has to either spend or see his investment depreciate; having SD plastered all round a championship ground and being on TV once every 2 or 3 months won’t give him exposure that’s for sure.

    What really annoys me about the fans who are against the protests is there pathetic excuse.

    ‘ boycotting won’t help the team ‘

    Sorry? I didnt realise that when we had a full house we helped the team. We are so quiet that we may aswell have an empty stadium. Im sorry but that excuse is completely invalid.

    I don’t even mind a cheap option, just not the cheapest option.

    I understand it is important to live within your means, we all (well I’m sure nearly all) do that in our day to day lives. However if we need a new car we may buy it on finance, or take a mortgage for our house, get the bathroom done out on interest free payments over a year or two.

    That’s where the club are lacking, sometimes you need to spend a little more than you would like so that in the long run you don’t miss out. That’s all most fans want, none of us have unrealistic expectations of winning the league or being champions league regulars.

    I do think we will spend in the summer, squad is thread bare and devoid of quality. After a few cheap windows (3 out of last 4 we haven’t bought) then we will buy enough to get us 10th, let the slide down the league begin again and repeat.

    I’m not meaning to be negative, it’s just a pattern we have seen before under Ashley, do enough when the situation is critical but other than that don’t look to improve.

    Good plan take our seat late, but in time for the 17th minute.

    The images of the mostly empty ground are very powerful and demonstrate that we are not accepting without protest !

    I’m not saying it’s ideal but I’m clinging to the idea that until Ashley sells up ( he will eventually), he has to change policy cos you can’t really plan to be 10th without flirting with relegation each year!

    My other hope is that when he first came to the club he did spend money and I’m hoping he changed policy and goes for a successful team (cups I mean) and top 6

    I live in hope cos if he doesn’t change or sell I’m done with the club after 60 years a supporter !

    The boycott may not have had 49K staying away but there was enough and is success lies not in hurting Ashleys pocket but in drawing attention to what has been going on pretty much unchecked for the last eight years. Footballing people are now talking about how bad Mike Ashley is.
