After the 1-0 defeat to Championship club Sheffield Wednesday last night at St. James’ Park, Steve McClaren has admitted that Newcastle may be close to a crisis.
Steve McClaren – has to turn it around somehow
We have now lost our last four games in all competitions, and the team is not playing well.
The players have to start taking some responsibility for these poor performances and the position we are in at present.
And the results tell the story – it’s simply not good enough.
The pressure appears to be too much for some of our players.
This is some of what Steve McClaren said after the 1-0 loss last night:
“Is the job harder than I thought? Absolutely. Without a doubt,” “People say it’s a crisis and it’s getting very close to it.” “We deserve to be criticised.”
Next up is Chelsea at home on Saturday,
And dare I say it – we have won these last three fixtures at home against Chelsea and Jose Mourinho has never won a game at St. Jame’s Park.
Here’s hoping it stays that way.
