Newcastle Star Bemoans Team´s Stats – It’s Disappointing


It´s not often that Georginio Wijnaldum is substituted at Newcastle these days, since he´s been one of our best players this season and is the top goalscorer with 9 goals.

But at half time in Newcastle´s insipid and disgraceful display at Stamford Bridge last Saturday, when we went through a 5-1 humiliation, he was taken out of the firing line and replaced by a fit-again Jack Colback.

Gini Wijnaldum in action last Saturday

After the game as McClaren tried to explain another disaster and what had happened under his tenure –  to shocked and disgusted Newcastle fans.

The manager said he had changed his tactics and gone into damage limitation mode – he´d given up on trying to get anything out of the game.

The sounds like he waved the white flag at half time.

Gini wasn´t told why he had been withdrawn, but like a lot of our Newcastle players on Saturday he hadn´t turned up for the game.

This is what Gini had said today:

“It is obvious unfortunately that our away form is killing us,” “I dunno what it is. That’s what the stats are, away from home we don’t win games.”

“Yeah we have to change it, and we must wake up. We always have to work hard because we are a team who are not winning enough games easily.”

“We have to work hard and that’s what we’re going to do in Spain, as always.” “It makes it worse than it already was because we lost 5-1 and we’re back in the bottom three.”

“Last week we won a game and we had a lot of confidence that we can have a good match against Chelsea but we didn’t.”

“It’s disappointing.”

It´s now up to Gini and the rest of the players to start showing some fight and urgency in the away games and if we cannot do that we will very likely be relegated.

We may not be as lucky as last season, when nothing was done when John Carver went 10 successive league games with just one point.

Do you really think any other Premier League club would have left John in place with that record?

We deserved to be relegated last season, but we were lucky and just escaped.

We deserve to be relegated this season because of the many mistakes that have made in bringing in the wrong  players and an inadequate head coach.

Perhaps Newcastle will not be as lucky the second time around.

    If we go down this season there will be no bounce. Life in the champo is a lot more competative now.

    Feel the same there is a lot of fight in Championship and that is exactly what we are lacking not so confident in bouncing straight back up

    With McClaren at the helm we’re sure to bounce back up!

    It will be a ‘dead cat bounce’. Last time we were left with a team of decent players with the gutless,and the heartless weeded out. This time that’s all we have. If we survive the squad needs a huge overhaul to shape a cohesive core, not a bought in collection of individuals with incompatible skill sets. That January money seems wasted atm. Hope they pull round in time to keep us up.

    @4&5, think I am more likely to see Sam Alardyce win a fit bloke pole than see us bounce back. We really need this idiot gone, he should have been gone by Xmas.
