The Fans Forum group took some initiative after our eighth defeat on the trot on May 2nd, and they asked to have a Fans Forum meeting so they could talk about the crisis hitting Newcastle, as we looked like we could be relegated after being outclassed at Leicester City and hammered 3-0 – and had two players sent off – Mike Williamson and Daryl Janmaat.
Lee Charnley – needs to call Fans Forum meeting
Lee Charnley sent a reply back and said he would bring the next meeting forward and hold it before the end of the season.
Lee didn’t do that, but with Steve McClaren coming in as the new head coach this week maybe Steve could attend the meeting and meet with the fans’ representatives.
One thing Newcastle must do is get back into good communication with the fans – since it’s never been good since Mike came into the club – but it showed some signs of improving with the regular meetings of the Fans Forum throughout the season.
Steve McClaren would even be willing to do that, as he would get an opportunity to put forward his vision for Newcastle over the next few years – and hopefully it will include going all out and try to win something.
So it would be good if Lee announces the next meeting and also apologize=e for not keeping his word and having the meeting before the end of the season.
If he wasn’t going to do that he should not have put that communication out publicly to the Fans Forum folks, who have shown great patience in waiting for another reply for the Managing Director.
It would be a great time to hold it say a week tomorrow, with Steve McClaren promising to also be present.
