Summer Transfer Plans In Tatters


Unless Newcastle can bring off a miracle, we will not get a win in our last three games and will finish the season with the worst collapse in the Premier League ever, and potentially lose our last 11 games.

If that happened in a public company, shareholders would be calling for the resignation of those at the top.

If we fail to win another game we will deserve to be relegated, and it has been brought onto the club basically by gross mismanagement at the top.

We haven’t needed help from anybody – we did all ourselves.

So all these reports today of signing players like Florian Thauvin, the 22 year-old Marseilles winger – will all go out the window.

And indeed until we get to the last game of the season against West Ham on 24th May in three weeks, things will be held in abeyance, until we know whether we will stay in the Premier League or go down to the Championship.

Normally under these conditions the fans will get right behind the team, but that may not happen, and in fact the opposite has taken place – such is the toxic atmosphere surrounding the club right now.

And that cannot help the players in trying to rescue the season – and hasn’t.

But it was always possible that we could be caught in the league, because of our very weak squad, and we reported on that possibility back on January 29th in this article.

Mike Ashley may go into action because we stand to lose £70M and more a year, and that figure will increase by 70% starting next year.

It will make the 20 clubs in the Premier League very rich compared to other European clubs – but not Newcastle.

This is a major crisis at the club make no mistake about that – and some crisis management from the top is necessary otherwise we’re sunk.

If Newcastle do get relegated this season, it will be the biggest and most dramatic collapse in Premier League history.

That wouldn’t be good.

    Our transfer policy shouldn’t be in tatters, Mash only buys championship quality anyway.

    Interestingly the next 48 hrs tells us all about ashley. Is his hatred of fans greater than his love of money and his own ego? Quite simply his failure to remove charva will show that he wants us relegated and that his hatred of the fans who “threatened his family” is stronger than his love of cash. Remember sports direct will be fine with newcastle in league 3. So this next 48 hrs will tell us so much. Interesting times.

    The only thing in tatters is MA and LC ability to run a football club, Carver lacks the ability but has been made an escape goat with people blaming him but surely the blame must start above him and they ALL need to go now

    Graham Carr needs to be sacked as much as anyone. Rivière? Cabella? Ferryra? As bad as Ashley, Charnley and co.

    Carver can not stay at the club in any capacity. Them players are showing a total lack of anything towards him.
    It’s almost like they’re losing on purpose.

    hibbit…Carver’s a big boy. He was offered the job an took because he saw an opportunity presenting itself.

    …just like when you and I take a job. Don’t put all this on those who hired him. The rot ay this club goes deeper than that.

    There are opportunist here and there and everywhere. They are all trying to spin gold on this. Down from Charnley to Carver/Pardew, to the coaching staff to players and to fans trying to upgrade their seats.

    Rot, rot, rot…

    “Unless Newcastle can bring off a miracle, we will not get a win in our last three games…”

    Far too dramatic. These are all – on paper – winnable matches. If we don’t take a few points, THAT will be a miracle of a different kind. Unfortunately we have a miracle worker. Everything Carver touches turns to Skittles. What he said about Williamson has made it impossible for him, if it ever was possible, to manage these players. Doesn’t matter if it was true – Carver is a coach, not a critic, and a major part of his job is to motivate. For what it’s worth, I’d account for Williamson’s, Janmaat’s, Dummet’s and Riviere’s gung-ho challenges as part of a pattern presumably in response to the half-time ear-bashing. “Get stuck into them ya pansies.” All our signings came with a track record of success. There’s no excuse for not putting in a shift when you’re paid tens of thousands a week, but the reason they don’t is down to the coach, and, yes, the people who calculatingly took a chance on him.

    Transfer plans. That’s a laugh. Whoever Carr can line up to put some loot in his own pocket is who we sign. I think it’s all too much for Ashley now. He can’t be bothered. It’s a nuisance, a distraction. So it’s left up to Charnley. The Little General. Incompetent certainly, crooked probably, totally ineffectual undeniably. With the Premier League money on offer, to think that the club is in the hands of Charnley, Carr and Carver is extraordinary really, and can only be an indicator of Ashley’s indifference.

    Does Carr ignore players over 6 foot? I suppose there’s Sissoko but how about a couple of heavyweight centrebacks. Oh, for a Killer Kilkline or a John MacNamee.

    Somehow I can’t see Florian Thauvin clearing out a few at corners.
