McClaren – Everyone Is Angry – Fans’ Frustration Overflows


Steve McClaren has said everyone is angry at Newcastle and that’s after the fourth time in succession that we have been eliminated in the third round of the FA Cup, and that’s even after a goal this season was to win a cup.

Newcastle are also third bottom of the league with just 17 points from 20 league games – so  frustration is starting to overflow with the long-suffering Newcastle fans.

And that’s especially true after the absolutely pathetic performance of the side under John Carver in the second half of last season when we got 13 points from 19 games.

Steve McClaren on the touchline today

John Carver should never have been appointed to that position in the first place – it was way over his head – but then absolutely nothing was done about it and we nearly ended up being relegated on the final day of last season.

We were simply very lucky not to be a Championship club this season.

But then this season seems almost like a continuation of last season’s complete nightmare for Geordie fans.

🙁

It’s just that something is seriously wrong at Newcastle these days –  the club is being so poorly run from the top.

The traveling fans at the game even turned on Florian Thauvin singing – “You’re not fit to wear the shirt” – and at the end there was booing from the extremely frustrated fans.

After the game today this is what embattled Newcastle manager Steve McClaren had to say to BBC Sport:

“You cannot ask any more from the players, we have to get on with it, that is the nature of football.” “Players have to be big enough, bold enough, have courage and we have spoken about that.”

“Everyone is frustrated, we are angry, the same as them and the players are disappointed. We went to Arsenal and the performance was terrific.”

“It’s very frustrating, they had one opportunity there, from one mistake. We totally controlled the game and created chances. That’s football, you have to stick the ball in at one end and defend at the other.

“We came here to win, we came here with a strong team and we had a different system. We controlled the game. We played to win, we went to win and everyone is frustrated; everyone is angry.”

What we need now is a win against Manchester United at home on Tuesday night.

So somebody needs to score a goal for us at St. James’ Park on Tuesday night – or even an own goal would do it.

    Lose against Man U & we are really in deep sh..e . Trouble is if we were to win probably won’t spend. Then again if we do lose probably won’t spend.It will never happen but Cashley & Co must start engaging more with the fans. Remember going to Stoke to a Cup tie years ago and he was sat right near me. How times have changed

    spitfire,

    I was only quoting the figures Ed used to damn Carver.
    It struck me it didn’t sound ball park worse than 17 from 20, or maybe 17 from 21 soon.

    its clear we were the best side, the finishing was poor simple.

    Need two new strikers with PL experience Remy and Adebayor would actually be decent on loan for 6 month, Adebayor always does Ok at the start of a new venture, Mitrovic and Perez would be good from the bench.

    Thauvin had a nightmare there, hope the lad comes good he has ability but he’s had an awful start. Not many come back. All three are kids to be honest and it takes a lot of balls to pull on the shirt and be brave when things are going against the team.

    the effort is still there and on the positive side Tiote has made a difference.

    need Shelvey, Remy, Ben Yedder, José Enrique, monster centre back.

    No other club on the planet would put up with our managers performance or constant drivel spouted out after every match.

    It’s pathetic and why Ashley is putting up with it when so much is at stake I just don’t know…it’s mind boggling.

    Steve please for the love of God and the hard working tired fans of Newcastle United, either shut up with the same old shit or leave. If neither can happen at least walk into Penfolds or Mike office and tell them straight. Get me a phucking proven CB / plus a proven play maker for the middle of the park and a proven striker or you can stick this job up your arse. Do this without a grin and maybe throw the odd phuck or shit within the sentence and stop being a pussy.

    Good point CTT but is Henrique fit?We could also get Debuchy back on loan if Wenger doesn’t help out his mate Garde.It will only be short term fixes but can you see any one of Rmy, Adeybeyor, Austin or even Carroll moving out of London. much more likely to plum for Pards Palace or West Ham

    I think if McClaren is sacked..it will be with six games to go.
    If the new manager then fails, he’ll hear that he gave in to the fans, and look what happened.

    In January 2013, 5 of the 6 signings were in the last 9 days of the window. We need to ensure that were mobilised. The heavy lifting was mentioned earlier as having been done.

    Well we’ll now see if Bournemouth’s courage pays off & the lad helps keeps em up. No guarantees but they are at least trying. They have an ambituous manager capable of managing at a much higher level in years to come.

    I like Berahino as a player but his attitude stinks. Mitro behaves like a stroppy teenager so we don’t need another.
