Sam Allardyce Vents About Newcastle Fans


Who would be a Premier League manager these days?

With the Internet and social media widely available now, those fairly new media outlets are used by football fans and anybody else to vent about football – and if things are not going well at any clubs some of the criticism is vicious – and I´m being kind.

sam allardyce

Sam Allardyce – new Sunderland manager

How many times do you see Twitter wars going on with various people – it´s happening all the time here in  the US at the moment with the Republican presidential candidates.

Donald Trump in particular seems to smash anybody who doesn´t agree with him – which is not exactly being presidential.

But I´m being picky.

Such is the modern world we suppose.

🙁

Sam Allardyce has just been appointed Sunderland manager and if anybody can get Sunderland safe this season it´s probably big Sam, who gets criticized but the man can deliver results when it´s necessary.

Sam will bring in former Newcastle caption Kevin  Nolan, who´s a free agent at the moment,  to help him turn around the dressing room.

Kevin is waning a bit on the pitch, but he´s a real leader in every sense of the word and will only help Sam turn things around at the Black Cats.

Sunderland fans seem pleased with the appointment and so they should be because bis Sam is a savvy manager dedicated to the job.

But Sam was criticized big time at Newcastle when he was at the club for a short eight months from May of 2007 until he as fired the following January.

This is what big Sam has said in the Sun today:

“When I was at West Ham my wife, Lynne, would constantly read the supporters’ website to see what new insults were being fired.”

“It upset her but she couldn’t keep away from the screen.” “Now she’s been reading the Sunderland fans’ site and she tells me the reaction has been very positive, which makes me feel very excited to get going.”

“It’s nice to be loved. But at West Ham and at Newcastle I was faced by passionate fans that made themselves heard if they weren’t happy.”

“It wasn’t just me at West Ham, it was every manager that was there.”  “I got it because I was the manager at that time but before that they moaned about Avram Grant, Alan Curbishley, Alan Pardew and Harry Redknapp.”

“Look at Alan Pardew now and how his career has transformed.” “They gave him a hard time at Newcastle and he moved to Crystal Palace where the fans love him and the turnaround has been scary.”

It´s not good news for Sam that his wife Lynne is reading the web sites because things can get very nasty on those sites on and Twitter and Facebook.

Sam will be called things she never even thought possible.

🙂

Notice Sam doesn´t read them!

The only thing we are interested in is that we can break the five game losing streak to Sunderland in a couple of weeks time.

Another defeat in that game would be too much to take.

    Ah the joy Sam has brought to the beautiful game.
    How he would wow them at Madrid!!!

    How is it we have managed to employ this oaf and any number of deluded mediocre Brit/English managers who preach long ball defensive football with no plan B.

    None of them (SA, AP and SM) should get anywhere near a job with a club with 52000 home fans!!!

    it always annoys me when failing managers say they never read the papers or websites.

    Maybe they are incapable, but if they did they may try altering things instead of ploughing on in their own inflexible , I know best, egoistic fashion.

    Rotonda,
    Klopp, FDB and that French bloke we were heavily linked with earlier this year would have been great but for one they would not come here and two the hierarchy do not want them here, I think it’s now been shown that is not down to the manager but the people who are employing them, it’s all very well saying that a better manager could have this squad top eight but it’s completely hypothetical as we can’t attract any other managers than washed out has beens desperate to restart their careers at any cost. Yet another mark of MA business practices, flagging brands on the way out bought on the cheap with his terms and conditions strictly adhered to.

    One things assured and that is like him or not, he’ll not take Sunderland down.

    That’s something that Ashley needs to recognise and that the odds on NUFC being relegated have increased. He must act now to get a manager in who’ll at least protect his investment.

    Maybe he needs to bring Llambias in to mind the shop after he’s put Charnley back into his old role.

    Sam ‘smash the ball up the pitch and chase after it’ Allardyce.

    Many of the fans on our feet singing and pointing “You don’t know what you’re doing” is still fresh in the memory.

    Another football style.

    Repost from previous thread:

    Rotonda

    It’s only recycled, failed Brits because it suits Ashley’s ambition to avoid relegation and attract the Prem money.

    However, even he must see that by running the club on the cheap and appointing an ill-equipped MD and board, he’s risking it again.

    He must also see that when Rodgers goes to Villa, there’s no-one available to replace him and take us forward. No doubt Cathero’ll be considered pro-tem but there lies the real risk of a Carver inspired recovery…. Or not!

    Ed, Carver, SM and AP weren’t safe bets. Their liability was very high due to their lack of success, sackings, and recent failed appointments elsewhere.

    If you put a flat tyre on a car, don’t wonder why you’re having a bumpy ride and struggling to drive in a straight line. Put a new tire on and do all you can to maintain it.

    If the MASH Holdings Secretary job’s up for grabs, it might suit Charnley – or then again, I can’t see Ashley trusting him in that bit of his empire.

    Scum have signed a manager to keep them in the Premier Leage, NUFC signed a manager to fit the flawed ambitions of the owner.

    Ashley wants a “Yes Man” who will do and say what he is told, but with enough football knowledge to supplement the clueless Penfold.

    As long as we stay in the division, Ashley will be delighted as the tv money continues to pour into his coffers. Win a Cup? Your’e having a laugh!!

    When the business genius behind the scenes decided it was just as easy to issue a statement saying we wanted to win a cup as it was to say we didn’t want to win one, they thought they were onto a winner.

    “You get all types on here don’t you?”

    You certainly do.

    People who feign support for NUFC for years yet in daily exchanges give themselves away.

    My personal favourite is George Caulkin (bless his little smoggy socks) had a phrase “The cathedral on the hill”

    Real toon fans NEVER call it that .
    Yet folk on here do !

    If you approach SJP from the North (Gosforth way) or East (the Coast Byker and Walker) it never appears on a hill , you actually look down on it from the Blue Bell at the top of Shields road.

    From the west you actually travel down to it from Arthurs hill.

    In fact it is only to visitors walking up from Central station (or Journos from the Copthorne) that it appears to be on a hill.

    Jail – it’s all a PR shambles mate.

    They will spout whatever it takes to keep the ground reasonably full and give away tickets if needs be. Ambition? Survive, keep the natives quiet and enjoy the TV revenues, spend as little as possible to stay in the Premier League – thats it.

    An ambitious club would have “Up-graded” continuously over the past 5 years. Willo should have been replaced 3 windows ago, Saylor 2 windows ago, Collo in the last window. Improvement, Progress, Achievement, AMBITION – Nah, we don’t do that sort of stuff here!!

    A manager has been brought in July, into a Multi million pound Globally branded business to make swingeing systemic and cultural changes and by early October the usual whiners are twisting and working themselves into a frenzy of criticism.

    That’ll be because this seismic change looks like it’s got failure written all over it with a sacked Championship manager being entrusted to turn things around, not only a sacked manager but one who has won three games in a calendar year.

    I remember speaking to Allardyce in Qatar just after he left us and he told me that once we start to struggle the tension generated by the fans transmits to the players and makes it very difficult for them to play.

    The long silences at home games followed by moans and groans at every misplaced pass does create tension and makes the players less adventurous so maybe the calls for full unconditional support at home games are relevant. No problem at away games , the support is amazing and full on.

    When I used to cycle as a VERY young kid to SJP (three shillings in the Gallowgate for U16s)
    up the coast road , it used to terminate at a T-junction at Hancocks Museum and there used to be what appeared to be the biggest policeman in the world on point duty.

    Then into the Haymarket to the Chicken express – chicken and chips – what luxury !!!!

    There are absolutely no evidence supporting we cannot attract a top coach or top coach in the making, it just seems we are only looking to attract has-beens or never been.

    Why? Because our owner knows nothing of football and neither does those with responsibility!

    Maybe if those with responsibility knew what they were doing then just maybe would our coach! Just my opinion (has seen plenty of dumb-ass owners who could attract good coaches)

    BandB …… It is common knowledge throughout the football community that the pressure from expectation levels make the job for players and coaches more difficult than at most clubs. The passion and desire should help us and hinder the opposition at home games and this season the fans seem a lot more behind the team. I know it hasn’t produced results but once the atmosphere becomes tense as it will if we keep losing, then it can only make things harder for the team to perform.

    The club are aware that we need big characters who can play under pressure as this has been mentioned as part of the criteria for new signings several times. The question is where are they??

    Betty,

    Your point is, I think, that the mood of the home crowd is effecting performances at St James’ Park.
    You then point out that the away fans get right behind the team.
    To illustrate your point that this lifts the team to better results away from home, you’d need holders to this list of people to blame for the club under-perofto show that this was evidenced by a decent away record, surely?
    Should we add season ticket holders to the list of people at fault for the club under-performing?

    The counter productive home atmosphere is by no means exclusive to NUFC.

    Jesper says we only appoint “yes men” and “has beens” , yet McClaren’s assistant manager is Ian Cathro , highly regarded within the game and confident enough to have applied for the Rangers job.

    I think this is SM’s last gig and Cathro is being groomed for the succession.

    BanbB……. The away support has always been good for all the years I have been a fan. It has never wavered!! Therefore if something is always the same then it doesn’t affect anything.

    At the moment the atmosphere at home games is also good but is prone to wavering which can affect things adversely , that is my point.
