Photos From First Day Of Training – Fan Forum Meeting


Steve McClaren got straight down to work at the first day of pre-season training today – but Newcastle fans still have to wait for the announcement of McClaren’s coaching staff and there was little communication form Newcastle today – other than four youngsters getting their first professional deals.

Those were striker Tom Heardman, midfielder Liam Smith and defenders Jamie Sterry and Macaulay Gillesphey, who were all offered terms back in March, and have all signed their deals today.

Congratulations to all four of them.

Bit its being reported that Steve McClaren is none too happy at the lack of any new faces at the club and he m,et with other Board members Lee Charnley, Graham Carr and Bob Moncur to go through where the club is on various of their targets

The club is getting off to a very slow start this summer – and it’s when we really needed to bring in one or two very early last month to try to lift the mood, not only of the fans – but of the players too.

It’s Lee Charnley’s responsibility to get this thing off the ground – and he just has to be more aggressive.

Faint heart never won fair lady – he who hesitates is lost is lost – fortune favors the brave.

With very little news so far coming out of Newcastle and no signings, the next Fans Forum meeting planned for Monday night is going to be interesting and may give is more information – we certainly need it.

Comments welcome.

    Looks a little haggard in that first pic does shteve.

    Wonder if he’s cottoned on yet? By the looks of it I’d say definitely yes.

    FOUR new signings on July 1st “see, they have been busy”

    If your teenager turns up for the first year of A levels and discovers that the people entrusted with guiding them through these crucial years haven’t been appointed, even they might feel a trifle affronted by the shocking negligence of the school.

    Perhaps these professional footballers just thought: “Yippee…let’s have a bit of a doss in the sunshine.”

    There will be tears…though tomorrow we will be battling West Ham, Spurs, Liverpool and probably Palace for Dragovic then he will sign for a Italian team, that’s how this goes right

    We can have very little confidence in Ashley’s fine words a short time ago so long as Charnley remains in place.
    He is a guy totally out of his depth, and will be a brake on any possibility the club has for moving forward as long as he is there.

    I would urge you all to send a screen shot of last night’s postings to Northumbria Police.
    They have a zero tolerance policy to hate crimes committed within British jurisdiction.

    Although I completely agree with you that the postings were vile and disgusting I’m not sure they are illegal, the jokes posted can be found many places online and Chubby Brown tells much worse

    Believe me I don’t condone what has gone on but I have Chubby’s latest DVD in that he tells a thalidomide joke and some other jokes about disability and race.
    There is a website called Sickapedia which as it sounds is a place for the sickest and racist jokes and that’s been going years.
    So although this is not the correct place for those kind of jokes, I don’t believe they are illegal

    These things attract shocking publicity, whether there is a conviction or not.
