When we were youngsters growing up in Newcastle many many moons ago – actually it was when Newcastle United were actually were winning trophies in the 1950s – in fact three trophies in five years – when somebody would say something that was kind of unbelievable, we would say pull the other one (a leg) it’s got bells on – and maybe that saying still exists today.
Moussa Sissoko – maybe he’ll play at center-back?
So after just a terrible performance today against Leicester City, who basically tore us apart and scored their first goal after just 37 seconds (what too so long?) and won 3-0 but could have won 10-0, there seems to be leaks about all the money Newcastle will spend in the summer.
Pull the other one it’s got bells on.
But since Newcastle will now probably be relegated – we don’t think that will happen – and the club will have to move to plan B (which of course they will not have) and sign much cheaper players because our revenues will drop significantly in the Championship.
And this time it’s by no means certain we can come straight back up again.
This stuff about big transfers in the summer is simply propaganda from a club that has managed to get themselves relegated since the end of January.
Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley have decimated both the Newcastle squad and the Newcastle club – and it just doesn’t seem possible how we can still avoid relegation – and the fans are simply disgusted.
And have we heard one squeak from either of the two at the top – are you kidding?
One little problem we have is that apparently there are rumors that Paul Dummett has injured his hamstring, so next week against West Brom – who beat Manchester United 1-0 this afternoon at Old Trafford – we will have Janmaat, Williamson and Dummett all missing.
And if West Brom can beat Manchester United away, they should be able to beat Newcastle United away.
Now who can play with Colo in central defense – let’s think now – who’s over 6 ft tall?
We were short of a center-back in January when on New Year’s Day we lost Steven Taylor for the season with an Achilles rupture, but did Ashley bring in another center-back – no way – he sold Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa to Roma and then let Davide Santon leave.
It’s little wonder we have no back four players left.
Newcastle will have great difficulty to keep the players we already have in the squad this summer, because they will all be running for the door.
And never mind attracting players to a club who have managed to get themselves relegated this year – that will be very difficult.
And to think we did it all without needing any help from anybody – it was all done in-house.
As we said the people at the top have decimated both the Newcastle squad and the Newcastle club.
