We looked to be really starting to go places when we beat Liverpool and Tottenham in successive games but Newcastle have again shown what an inconsistent side they are when we manged to get just one point out of last three games of the year – against Aston Villa, Everton and now West Brom – who won their first game in six games.
Against Aston Villa ta home it was Villa’s only 4th point in 16 games so we are losing to poor sides.
Lee Charnley and Mike Ashley
No knee jerk reaction from these two
But will there be any reaction at all?
Here’s our record this year.
So in the 38 league games played we have 22 defeats and only 30 points – 7 wins and a shocking goal difference of -32 and a ,massive 69 goals conceded.
And we are not going to strengthen our defense next month?.
If things don’t change quickly we could very well end up relegated in May and that comes after we had ample warning last May when John Carver almost took us down with eight defeats in a row shortly before the end of last season.
We’ve said it before – there is something terribly wrong at Newcastle when we cannot seem to get the results – and the club just seems to be run by amateurs from the top.
Who really is running Newcastle these days – Lee Charnley, Graham Carr, Mike Ashley or all three?
We certainly don’t want to overreact – and as Lee Charnley keeps saying – there will no knee jerk reactions from Newcastle.
But in times of crisis there needs to be some reaction – something done – otherwise we’ll continue the way we have been the first 19 games of the season – and the final 19 games of last season – a relegation side.
But are the powers that be going to stand idly by now – like we did when John Carver was manager and we almost were relegated in the final game of last season.
Will they take any decisive action to try to save Newcastle and not let the club slide back into the Championship again?
That’s the question for people like Mike Ashley, Lee Charnley and whoever else is running Newcastle United these days.
