There’s Not Much Hope For Newcastle Fans


It would be good to get off to a good start to 2016 – especially after last year was one of the worst fans have had to endure in the long 123 year history of Newcastle United – with just 7 wins and 30 points in our 38 league games.

That’s relegation form with a capital R.

But Newcastle are at Arsenal tomorrow and we have lost the last eight league games against the Gunners and add to that the fact that Arsenal have won six and drawn one of theit last seven league games at home and it looks  a home banker.

That’s what Newcastle fans think too.

How Will Newcastle Fare At Arsenal?

But of course you just never know with Newcastle and if we are to pull away from the relegation zone and survive for a second successive season – then we have to start picking up points in the most unlikeliest of games.

We cannot have poor results in our four league games in January, so this one is really important.

    I didn’t expect anything from
    Spurs
    Liverpool

    I genuinely expect nothing from
    Arsenal

    This window is huge, I thought at the start of the season the window at the end of the season ( alleged 3rd window) but given where we are …..
    Huge window, almost double patio doors !
    Will we get the right players ? Not if history is repeated.

    Fingers crossed

    Priority this year from fans should be to drive Ashley out of the club, Make the parasite sell up!
    Oh and happy new year everyone.

    Since Wenger applied his magic, we’ve always been outplayed by that team, but we’ve managed to get something against the odds, sometimes.

    Carroll’s headed goal. Robert’s excellent goal on the counter. It can be done. Never is pretty from our point of view.

    As I posted a bit earlier, our home match against Manure could be critical for McClaren – assuming we’re beaten by Arsenal and Watford.

    Happy new mate.
    Yes I think he has no choice but to bring in players.
    Whether that be the right quality because of our precarious position remains to be seen.
    If he sticks with what we have I fear the worse so let’s hope for the best rather than fearing the worst

    Happy New Year to all.

    I think we might see a couple of players leaving the club and maybe a couple more out on loan, but incoming players????

    We all know the rules, if Charnley cannot get value pound for pound it isn’t going to happen, and as someone pointed out yesterday Charnley would struggle to buy a newspaper.

    Yes. If we did badly against Manure (assuming we lost to Arsenal and Watford) then McClaren would likely walk away.

    Do you think they’d appoint Cathro? They got their fingers burned with Carver, of course. More likely a useless external appointment, as you say.

    A Happy and Prosperous New Year to all.
    We have to hope tha McClaren’s campaign to convince those that hold the purse strings that this is not the time for parsimony.
    Alan Shearer came to us for a world record fee 3 weeks before he was 26 ,was with us 10 years and became the PL top scorer.
    Development players are all very well , you will unearth a Carroll or a Perez at times.

    You cannot rely on it.

    Sometimes you have to grit your teeth , smile , put a brave face on it , and stump up.

    In summer AC Milan paid €30 million to Sevilla to activate a release clause for a 28 year old Carlos Bacca.

    According to Forbes Milan are 10th richest in the world and NUFC are 18th .

    We are fighting Swansea for Bas Dost’s signature , it should be a no contest in our favour.

    LeBrune Marseilles owner is saying he wants €50 million for Michy Batshuayi , so what !!!

    Would be nice to think the likes of Willo-Gouffy-Obershoker-Marvs and the likes are shipped out to leave room for incoming.If Penfold leaves the squad as is, Then he deserves all the crap that can be thrown his way

    Willo is pretty much a Wolves player at this point from what’s been put in the press but for the rest are there any real links? Can’t say I’ve seen any

    Might be a case of free transfers out the door? Gouffran is the most disappointing of the bunch id say was cracking when he first arrived then Cabaye left and it just steadily dwindled to nothing still half a mill well spent overall

    wwsbrd…………….players dont have to leave just take them out of the squad when the new players in either sell or release 5/6 players contracts end in the summer so no value if there not to be offered a new contract get rid now and free up the place other clubs work round these rules but we always use it as a crutch

    Those players registered as squad members can be de-registered. They don’t have to be sold but obviously doing so makes sense.

    However, whether our so called MD, CEO, Ashley’s gofor or whatever title he’s been given, can actually open a box let alone think outside of it!

    It’s been five to six weeks since the so-called board held its squad review to identify needs to strengthen it and there’s no reason why signings shouldn’t be arriving now.

    We’ve a crucial match tomorrow and it would’ve been nice to see a new face in the squad – a new face not one back from sick-parade!

    Get a move on Charnley, the Club’s fate’s in his hands and you’d think that after last season’s balls up, he’d have learned.

    But…. you can take a horse to water etc etc

    Surprisingly not too bad mate, thanks for asking. A little shaky but that will pass.

    For some reason I thought the match was today, and was trying to pull myself round for it. PMSL

    Hope you had a good night too.

    Like others have said we have to trim the squad to bring anyone in, Unfortunately Charnley has to find clubs for them so I doubt we will see much movement.

    Like I said maybe a couple out and a couple on loan.

    We sign only French players or black players so he is a possibility.

    WTF!!! Don’t know if you’re being ironic or xenophobic but could have sworn mitro was serb, wijni dutch and M’Bemba congolese and am pretty sure Eliot (Irish) Janmatt (Dutch) De Jong (Dutch,) Perez (Spanish,) etc etc are caucasean.
