The Mirror is reporting today there has been a meeting of the upper management this week at Newcastle and it comes as no surprise that people like Managing Director Lee Charnley want to see an upturn in the form and results of this Newcastle side.
So do the very long-suffering Newcastle fans.
We have made an absolutely abysmal start to the season with 10 points from 14 league games and it’s no better than the disaster of last season.
Steve McClaren – on the brink at Newcastle?
Steve said yesterday that he had received no guarantees about his future and that he wouldn’t ask for any or want any.
The next two games are really tough and we expect two defeats against top clubs Liverpool and Tottenham.
Sunday could be a very difficult game for us, with Newcastle in very poor form and Liverpool in top form under new manager Jurgen Klopp.
The Mirror is reporting that Steve will likely get the next two games to show the hierarchy he can produce a turnaround at Newcastle.
And while his appointment in the summer was supposed to be long term – Newcastle will not risk being relegated if McClaren can’t quickly turn things around.
That’s especially true with two high profile managers David Moyes and Brendan Rodgers both available at the moment.
After Liverpool and Tottenham, we face fellow strugglers Aston Villa at home and if we suffer two bad defeats in the next two games the upper management may choose at that time to bring in a new manager.
That could give the players and the fans and everybody associated with the club a much-needed lift and some momentum that could help us get a win against Villa at St. James’ Park in what will be a 6 pointer.
The manager can then have some significant input on who he wants brought in during the January transfer window.
Newcastle fans don’t think McClaren can turn things around at Newcastle.
And the vast majority of fans are not expecting anything but a defeat on Sunday.
