Steve Black Frightened The Players Half To Death


Steve Black comes to Newcastle with a huge reputation, and he has had many successes in his career – he’s  known to be a great motivator of people.

So there was a little bit of fun today when Steve McClaren was talking to the press, and the head coach mentioned that Black had talked one on one to most of the players since training started last week.

Steve Black at Newcastle

To give you an idea of what Steve’s like – here’s a little bit of what’s on his web-site:

Be Effective!

Steve Black is one of Europe’s leading motivational speakers. He has built a formidable reputation as a passionate and captivating presenter who delivers cutting edge material in his own unique style.

Onwards & Upwards!

So that sets the stage just a little bit for what Steve McClaren had to say today, about Black speaking with each of the Newcastle players for the first time:

“Speaking of passion, when Steve Black had his first chat with the players, he frightened them half to death. Everybody knows him and his reputation and it has been well received.¨

“He’s good at his job and has done it in every sport. He has told the players that we are here to help.”

Steve can inspire the players when necessary and he has had lots of success with that in his career, but it’s more one on one with players.

But he does give speeches to executives too – so he seems to have a bit of a thriving business he’s built up over the years.

Hopefully he’s already has a one on one with Lee Charnley.

🙂

Steve McClaren seems to have put together a very good coaching staff, but only the results will show whether they can be successful at Newcastle.

Here’s hoping.

    No only has he done it in many sports,he’s done it at a very high level in each of those sports. If Blackey cant get the lads to perform ,then no one can.

    Any relation to Brian Blessed? I’m imagining him much the same.

    Back to the Erwin keomen comments
    I think he may be a little worried about us getting him because of the quitting the man has

    This is a good sign Eindhovens dagblad (PSV’s verion of the Ronny Gill) is already dividing up Wijnaldum’s fee from the Toon between his former clubs.
    €1.5million to Feyenoord €100,000 to Sparta Rotterdam

    Feyenoord int flink bij transfer Wijnaldum, Sparta eet ook mee

    EINDHOVEN – Feyenoord ‘casht’ net als PSV flink op het moment dat Georginio Wijnaldum wordt verkocht.
    Bekijk ook…

    Wijnaldum: bod Newcastle tussen 15 en 20 miljoen euro (video)
    Wijnaldum: ‘Vorig jaar verwachtten ook velen dat ik niet zou blijven’ (video)

    De club heeft sowieso recht op een opleidingsvergoeding van 3,0 procent over het hele transferbedrag. Ook Sparta kan 0,5 procent van het hele transferbedrag tegemoet zien.

    Feyenoord heeft daarnaast een doorverkooppercentage van 7,5% bedongen (net als Wijnaldum zelf), zo meldt VI. Dat betekent dat de Rotterdammers bij een transferbedrag van iets minder dan 20 miljoen euro ongeveer 1,5 miljoen euro tegemoet kunnen zien. Voor Sparta gaat het dan om bijna 100.000 euro.

    Wijnaldum staat in de belangstelling van Newcastle United en zou snel kunnen verkassen naar de ‘Magpies’.

    The cb I would like us to sign is kamil glik of torino. He is exactly what we need and at 27 he is at a good age for a centre half. Every time I see him I’m always impressed, I do like matip but he’s not the bc we need at this current time. Kamil glik is a leader and organiser. For those who haven’t seen him, he plays in the same mould as terry and vidic. Seriously underrated player because he is a polish international and plays for torino.

    What do you mean never get? And you mean de vrij? He is totally out of reach as it’ll cost 15-20 million pounds at least.

    Maybe Blackie needs to put the frighteners on Penfold. If anyone needs livening up and ‘motivating’ in the ‘back-office’; it’s him…

    …problem is that he’s so far out of his depth that he’ll not be able to relate to anything Blackie says to him…

    …goodbye, you ARE the weakest link.

    International Modern Language Linguist/Lecturer. (or as most know him on here – Jibberish the blog pest).
    You should be aware that there are sometimes several meanings for words.
    The Dutch word vilder – normally means skinner – however an alternative translation – is “knacker”. (both originating from the horse knacking industry).
    You have failed the liguistics test.
    Wat een vilder (what a knacker)

    Hahahaha ——–get in!!

    Been reading the minutes from the fans forum meeting and I have to ask. What the hell is the point of the fans forum?

    When questions are asked surely if only out of respect they should be answered.

    How can anyone look to the future without examining the mistakes of the past?

    Just because we have new staff at the club does not mean that those sitting above will not repeat the mistakes of the last couple of seasons.

    As for those FF members who are suppose to represent the fans, why do they just accept what the club say without question? Why are none of them fitted with the ba11s to demand answers? And why was the questions about the failed FF meeting that was suppose to happen before the seasons ended not even asked?

    Total and utter waste of time and effort.

    Charnley was there, it was the perfect time to get some real answers, now it’s an opportunity missed.
