In Complete Awe Of Liverpool Fans

It was something to behold last week to watch and read about the appointment of Jurgen Klopp as the new head coach of Liverpool after Brendan Rodgers was sacked on Monday night.

It took Liverpool only a few days to appoint a coach who will bring excitement, great football and some titles again to Liverpool FC in the future as one of the most exciting coaches in world football.

Jurgen Klopp – appointed as Liverpool manager

Jurgen has already galvanized the Liverpool supporters who must be giddy at what´s going on at their club and Jurgen showed what he´s all about by watching the Liverpool youth side yesterday.

But as a lifelong Newcastle fan born and bred on Tyneside it was also a bit sad because at one time that could have been our club making such a terrific appointment.

It showed how far Newcastle have dropped in the last  eleven years since Sir Bobby Robson left the club.

There is not much real ambition at Newcastle these days – only a desire to stay in the Premier League because of the big money available.

We had a big chance in the summer to appoint an exciting new head coach to bring back some of the great times we once enjoyed.

But the club is run in a pedantic and very strict way and those in charge just don´t have the vision or the will to appoint a really good head coach who could shake things up at Newcastle.

Those in charge appointed John Carver as a safe bet in January after Alan Pardew left and Steve McClaren was another fairly safe bet who was appointed in June.

But those safe bets haven´t exactly turned out to be all that safe with Newcastle winning only one game of the last 19 Premier League games played, and we may even be in some trouble this season after just avoiding relegation in May.

Safe bets never seem to work out too well in a world where fortune seems to favor the brave.

The bold appointment of Jurgen Klopp as the new Liverpool manager has served to show how far Newcastle United have fallen in the football world since the great Sir Bobby Robson left the club eleven years ago.

We hope things will get a lot better very soon, but we are not sure where the vision that Liverpool have shown this week will come from at Newcastle.

We continue to live in hope – maybe we can beat Norwich and Sunderland in our next two games.

    Not in Yarm no…he was in the same Ryan Air queue as me in leeds bradford airport going to malaga.

    Does make you wonder what a manager who’s bottom of the league is thinking when he fcuks off to spain to for a couple of days or whatever…you’d think e’shave more pressing things on his mind wouldn’t you.

    Doubt Sir bobby would have done that but then again i doubt sir Bobby would have had us anywhere the near bottom 3 either

    Newcastle isn’t like other premier league clubs though, we can only get people who is happy being a yes man for a start. .
    MA and Charnless are obviously trying to give the fans what They think fans want, and that’s more local people to manage the club.

    I wish people would just focus on Us. I couldn’t give a hoot what that bunch of scruffy tracksuit wearing, unshaved, car twocking bunch of nuggets do! We’ve got an ex England gaffer at the helm and Gods honest truth I know that if we give him time and we keep investing then We’ll get there. P.S Klopp will flop
