Newcastle Likely Just To Stick With McClaren

3:12 pm, Friday, February 19th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 249 Comments

We have read a few articles this week in the Chronicle and a common theme is the last thing Lee Charnley wants to do is to bring in a new manager to replace Steve McClaren, even though the head coach has struggled in the job all season and his record is simply hopeless.

But it also seems the last thing Lee wanted to do last season was to bring in a new manager and the inept John Carver was therefore allowed to stay in the job, even though he had only one point from the previous 10 games before we won the very last game of the season and only just survived.

Steve McClaren – we’ve seen too much of this

John was then fired in early June but not before he was still pushing for the job full time after he had saved Newcastle  in the final game.

The general consensus after the second away disaster in a row at Chelsea last Saturday was that McClaren would have to do well in the next two games to survive and keep his job.

But we now wonder how true that really is – and how long Lee Charnley is willing to wait this season – waiting for the results under Steve  to pick up.

They didn´t pick up under John Carver last season and we were more than lucky to get away with survival- no thanks to Lee Charnley.

Only if we lose badly to Stoke will there be more cries that McClaren will have to go, but would Newcastle really  fire him before the next vital game three days later at home to Bournemouth.

Probably not – and then we would even be favorites to beat Bournemouth – a massive game for us.

So if we lose to Stoke it´s unlikely Steve will be fired and then if we beat Bournemouth we are back to square one – and McClaren continues in the job.

Newcastle have never come good this season so far, other than a couple of successive wins against Liverpool and Tottenham and a home point against bottom of the table Aston Villa.

But after those 7 points from three games we lost the next four games – all of them by 1-0.

But in our last two away defeats they were 3-0 at Everton and 5-1 at Chelsea so the defense has given out again.

There have even be reports the Board still he is the right long term manager for Newcastle, but what the exact logic is behind that we have no idea.

Maybe a good question for Lee at the Fans Forum meeting on Monday night?

The suspicion seems to be the Newcastle Board will give Steve McClaren every chance possible to survive and rescue Newcastle.

But the risk is if there are no improvements in results and the Board realize McClaren must be replaced – it will be too late – as it almost was last season.

And how many good managers would take over with so few games to play?

As we say often – if you don’t learn from your past mistakes then history always repeats itself.

One of the reasons we are so concerned that we will take the drop in May is that there doesn’t seem to be the will at the club to do what’s necessary to fix the problem.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    Vurnon anita needs to look at N’golo Kante both are similar heights and i remember Anita was deemed to be to small to play PL by some but Kante at Leicester is exactly the same height but has dominated ever since arriving in the PL

    i still think Anita is capable of raising his game he has shown flashes here and there.

  • 3 Tsunki // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:21 PM

    Come on Ed at least put Johnny carvers stats up alongside. It would at least serve to illustrate that they held on to Carver to the last game of the season when we realistically could have gone down, therefore there is no reason they will sack SM while the maths is still on our side to stay up.

  • 4 G // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:22 PM

    I always thought Vern a very under rated player, gets unfairly singled out in games by some fans. For some reason we seem to forgive some players for a couple of poor performances, and beat up others till they go. Never worked out why.

  • 5 bettyswallocks // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:23 PM

    Ian Toon……. I have never involved myself in the dispute about your multiple Id’s . However there does appear to be conclusive evidence to prove the point. Today would be the perfect time to admit the truth and apologise to the people that this has affected. I am sure that your apology would be accepted and that the blog would be a better place without the ill feeling and mistrust.

  • 6 Tsunki // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:23 PM

    But its good to see fair plundering of the “Depths of Despair McLaren” album again. Maybe he’s just found out that Rob Vollans is the agent for every player on the books? 🙂

  • 7 nufc786 // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:24 PM

    G
    I know I think Sissoko has been getting off light lately i remember when he gave the ball away at chelsea and made a half pathetic attempt to run back… Pathetic

  • 8 Tsunki // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:24 PM

    Rollo Tomasi? Or Keyser Sose?

  • 9 Tsunki // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:25 PM

    Maybe Rob is Topsy Kretts?

    😀

    Theories on a postcard please…

  • 10 G // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:27 PM

    Sissoko is 2 players, identical to look at, but one of him can be brilliant, and the other wants to be shot!

  • 11 G // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:28 PM

    Is Tsunki called Rob Vollens as well? It would be nice to have a name to send my bill for ruined bacon sarnies to!

  • 12 Tsunki // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:30 PM

    “So what do you think, Graeme? Can he do any worse than the Handyman?”

    ” No, no no, Lee – not with the players I’ve bought him, they just need to gel, plenty of time left”

    ” shhh shhhhhh… here comes the boss”

    – Mike Ashley enters the boardroom, throws a wad of cash on the table, farts, sniffs the air, then leaves without a word. Silence in the boardroom save for the snoring of Moncur under the table.

    Nufc786, if you look at his record prior to joining us he was a DM, and a bloody good one. He’s certainly built for it. Seems we play him there as our current record of buying RMs is Obertan, Thauvin and Cabella

    Betty- The link was posted a few days ago but was mocked by Jail.
    I have only ever posted as Ian Toon and given time you like many others will recognise it. The party sending me messages is only too aware.

  • 21 Tsunki // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:39 PM

    Later that day….little Bobby has woken and is now recreating his fairs cup exploits with the subbuteo under the table. Graeme is giving Lee, naked from the waist up, his daily shoulder rub. As he gently kneads the essential oil into the rolling folds of his upper chest, he whispers in Lees’ ear…

    “Can I have some of that £80m Lee? I’ve got a feeling I can get hold of Paul Scharner for a bargain…”

  • 22 Tsunki // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:40 PM

    “Belfast – I clearly was ahead of my time when you were declared a blog legend!
    For what it’s worth I have also received a number of emails in recent weeks largely from the same source. I wasn’t asked to keep the source confidential but it is appropriate to do so.
    The latest one is claiming that Back Door Man and Ancient C are one and the same person.”

    Ian Toon, I would be happy to put my name up against yours, if one of the more reputable posters wants to contact Ed, with permission from us both – as to who between us is using what accounts. What say you? Do we have a deal.

  • 26 G // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:47 PM

    AncientC, you challenge to Ian implies at least one person on the blog has a decent reputation and thier integrity intact. Good luck finding him mate.

  • 27 AncientC // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:52 PM

    “AncientC, you challenge to Ian implies at least one person on the blog has a decent reputation and thier integrity intact. Good luck finding him mate.”

    There were no implications made, aside from clearing up which out of Ian and Myself are using multiple accounts. There is little need to confuse the issue.

  • 28 Mister Tuff // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:53 PM

    G @26 – at your service – Tuffs the name -integrity the game.

  • 29 G // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:54 PM

    @28 lol

  • 30 AncientC // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:56 PM

    Anyways, busy so have to go. Hopefully Ian mans up, although I doubt it. Adios.

  • 31 G // Feb 19, 2016 at 3:57 PM

    AncientC, wasnt having a go, just trying to lighten the mood on the blog, no need for the drama eh.

  • 32 G // Feb 19, 2016 at 4:00 PM

    Tuffy by the way, that genuinely did give me a good laugh, not questioning your integrity or anything, just a brilliantly worded retort to ACs choice of words.

  • 33 Belfast // Feb 19, 2016 at 4:04 PM

    I don’t have a clue why he was doing it. It was suggested Ed told him to stop posting links to that site. So It could have been sour grapes from then.

    The hospital story was a classic though..

    He should donate his brain to science and they can really see what’s been going on.

    I do feel a little foolish looking back at the hospital story now like. There was a few who weren’t buying it but I actually believed it at the time.

    Nurse says I can go on the blog now for a few minutes after coming of the ventilator 🙂

    Ian Toon – throw yourself upon the mercy of the blog.
    Admit your mischief.
    Admit that you just made up your post about me being moderated.
    Admit your other “friends”.
    Admit you told tales about having 23 supporters.
    Do you know Pushy Pardew what is your relationship.
    What is your relationship to Carl
    What is your relationship to finkler

    I have no doubt our man will be sharpening his VPNs and the blog will be hell tonight, not helped by f*kcwits who only stick their heads above the parapets to whinge on about drama queens, hair-pullers etc “spoiling” the blog.

    This particular guy has shown huge disrespect to Ed, a man of advanced years and not the best health who has been trying to do us all a favour.

    It’s not about points scoring against fellow supporters with different opinions. This guy was happy to chant for the Mackems and do everything he could to bring the blog to a halt. No Newcastle fan would do that.

    Give your thick heads a shake.

  • 37 Mister Tuff // Feb 19, 2016 at 4:10 PM

    G – always worth trying to lighten the mood – unless those who like to play their victim status appear with their faux outrage etc etc. All down to trying to square off long forgotten disputes/differences of opinion. But there are folk like that in society.

  • 41 Mister Tuff // Feb 19, 2016 at 4:16 PM

    Band B – you second paragraph about Ed is cetainly worthy of note.
    somebody else, cannot remember who, just a few days ago -Lesh possibly, cautioned that the shenanigans needs to stop or Ed could throw the towel in and that’ll be the end of the blog.

  • 52 Mister Tuff // Feb 19, 2016 at 4:44 PM

    Hibbitt – you never know that could have been his intention.
    For me it is two choices on here -or perhaps three.
    Say nowt -do not engage.
    First point is undermined when some do engage.
    Take the p out them and tell them to clear off or behave themselves.

    There’s every possibility that a new poster or two will pop up later on with an innocuous post about football you agree with.
    Bear in mind we rarely get new posters, and never two or three in one evening.
    But you can greet them with “Windupfan….spot on mate!” if you like.

  • 65 firebug666 // Feb 19, 2016 at 5:14 PM

    Aye he took a lot in to be honest, but I feel stupid having defended him (as Chancel) I might add, when he was being outed a couple of weeks ago.

    What has me so angry, is I am disabled, and have suffered several heart attacks to boot, so I could sympathise with him when he was on about being in hospital and such like, but he was lying, real people suffer every day with real problems, and that tw@ craves sympathy from bloggers he is lying too.

    It’s difficult to not really let loose with what I think.

    On a football topic, bet we get beat tomorra!

  • 66 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 19, 2016 at 5:17 PM

    Good afternoon all

    Having read the “evidence” put against me I would like to answer it.

    Firstly my name is James not Rob,
    Secondly all you have proved Belfast is someone retweeted me.
    Thirdly I have not trolled and would never troll this or any Blog.

    in answer to YMFB I have been moderated twice, once over the my over zealous links to another blog, secondly when Ed was doing the wum clearout, both times my icon changed as I was being modded.

    in my answer to BandB yes I have spent many occasions in St James Hospital due to my health and had lots of different surgerys.

    one slight side note, whilst I do not know this Rob character can you be sure he is the one trolling? because if he is I wouldn’t mind having a few choice words with the idiot myself

  • 67 firebug666 // Feb 19, 2016 at 5:17 PM

    Chancel

    It’s difficult to know what to believe anymore marra, the evidence has been put forward.

    There is a way to exonerate yourself, and that is to have a word with ED, get him to investigate and clear you, then post the replying email here.

    I like you as Chancel and using that name you have done nothing wrong.

    I will be first to apologise to you if you can produce some evidence that will prove you are not a multi-poster, and have not in fact been taking us all for a ride.

  • 92 Belfast // Feb 19, 2016 at 5:52 PM

    Why the ferk would the famous rob vollans be tweeting about your shop website being under reconstruction ?

    Remember you dont know him……

    Give it up.

    obviously he retweeted me but I can’t see that as they are no longer on twitter!

  • 94 Mister Tuff // Feb 19, 2016 at 5:54 PM

    firebug – excellent idea about getting Ed to investigate and post his reply.
    Funnily enought when Ian Toon accused me of being moderated for bullying I contacted Ed – he replied as follows : (I have redacted my email and name)

    Re: Another Blog Idiot
    Ed Harrison
    Redacted ;Tue 09/02/2016 21:00
    Redacted

    Yes – I hope they sicken soon.
    On being moderated – NO – it’s not true.
    I appreciate your help.
    Ed Harrison.

    I would have no problem forwarding my series of emails in respect of this to anyone – excluding the obvious suspects.

    Ian Toon – admit your mischief -now!

    Take a chancel

    Stumble trip, stumble trip. Errrr, not me honest.

    Talk about blowing yourself up nuclear style lmfco.

    Come on rob, the games up mate.

    As it was a sensitive issue what with you being in hospital and all, and the undoubted backlash anyone would receive if they dared question that – not many came straight out with it. A few alluded to it. Beat around the bush so to speak. I had my suspicious and knee something didn’t sit right.

    Yes I know, Like I said if he is innocent then prove it as the evidence against him is there.

    I am not going to be sucker punched on this, As Chancel I do like him as a poster, but everyone even murderers are entitled to a defence.

    If he can prove that he is only one poster, I will eat humble pie, at the moment the evidence is stacked against him, and it makes me out to be a right tool for defending him when I did.

    He is now here pleading his innocence, The truth will out, if Ed can assure us.

  • 99 Average_Contents // Feb 19, 2016 at 5:59 PM

    So some random stranger you claim to not know, and who had been accused of having multiple accounts on here just decided to retweet you’re tweets.

    Just for the fun of it.

    Must be one of those pesky coincidences again eh?

    Just do one ya sad little weirdo.

  • 100 Nufc-83 // Feb 19, 2016 at 5:59 PM

    Chancel…As I’ve said before, the coincidences surrounding your time on here have been suspect, but most have been willing to give you the benefit of doubt.

    It is possible that we’ve added one to one and gotten five, but it really doesn’t seem that way. Surely you can see that?

    If you’d like, you could forward me the email from Ed, where you two discuss the reasons for you being moderated?

    ibizatoon2015@gmail.com. Your email address is already out there now.

    People just want this to stop, once and for all.

  • 103 Belfast // Feb 19, 2016 at 6:02 PM

    So Rob Vollans had this big plan to fit you up so he decided to tweet about your shop website being under reconstruction ?

    The same Rob Vollans who’s from Leeds and was also editor of the nufc digest website ?

    The same bloke who deleted all the evidence from the internet ? Now why would he delete all the evidence if he had this big plan to fit you up ? Bizarre.

  • 104 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 19, 2016 at 6:02 PM

    Out of respect for the many bloggers and with a heavy heart I will remove myself from this blog until my name is cleared. I will be having correspondence with Ed and will ask if there is some way the result can be posted on here

    I will miss the banter and many bloggers such as:

    Chancel…… I have also had correspondence with Ed today and he has informed me that he was aware that you are Rob Vollens but under your new email address he has allowed you to continue posting as long as you don’t upset the blog. He has been monitoring your posts and says that so far under the new email you are behaving.

    We are all concerned on here about your lies and deceipt so please do not continue to insult our intelligence with your pathetic attempts to squirm out of this.

  • 107 BandB // Feb 19, 2016 at 6:06 PM

    Firebug,

    You were inclined to believe him from the outset, to the point of accusing other people of paranoia.

    It IS a football blog, which was happily discussing football for the first time in months once this guy was under moderation, and it kicked off again as soon as he wormed his way back on.
    For the second time in two months.

    Yeah I have watch the exchanges with you and certain other posters who I do not interact with much.

    Whilst you are always ready to back up what you say with evidence, the others scurry away licking their wounds and searching Google for a suitable reply.

    I guess I am always willing to give posters the benefit of doubt, but this time I want some evidence as Chancel is a good poster with health problems, but this Rob Vollans or whatever his name is a tw@ and if that is (as the evidence suggests) chancel then I am a mark 1 idiot for defending him and falling for his poor me sympathy trip.

  • 110 BandB // Feb 19, 2016 at 6:12 PM

    I guess the new guy copying and pasting lengthy segments from Wikipedia last night is nothing at all like the guy who was posting lengthy song lyrics.

    can you explain the fact you posted to a boutique website and twitter last night

    you said was urs and this rob vollans implies the same
    u were also posting links to the same rob vollans blog

    I know mate, Really I come on have a bit chat, not always about football, and engage with most.

    I defended chancel because I thought he was a decent poster, and he had some good things to add to the blog, that defending him, and sympathising with him over his long and dangerous illness all count for nothing when the evidence says he is a multi-poster who has been taking the p1ss out of us all.

    I think I am more gutted because I fell for it all hook line, and sinker.

  • 120 Tsunki // Feb 19, 2016 at 6:32 PM

    Nufc-83 telling us all we shouldn’t be concerned about blog spoilers who like to create multiple wind-up accounts to ruin the whole show.

  • 121 BandB // Feb 19, 2016 at 6:34 PM

    I think what’s been shown Jail, is that the person who has been saying you have a face like a baboon’s arse etc…..ie that thing that REALLY gets your goat……is probably none of the people you’ve been trying to pin it on.

    I’m out of this….

  • 122 firebug666 // Feb 19, 2016 at 6:35 PM

    BandB

    I don’t think it’s a case of six of one, half a dozen of the other.

    At the moment his guilt is pretty clear, the evidence has been posted, and whist he is still protesting his innocence, he has no evidence to back it up.

    Until such time as Ed proves his innocence either via email exchanges with him, or directly on the blog, I will go with the evidence that has been laid bare before us.

    Twice now I have fallen into the trap of being taken for a mug, it will not happen a third time, as I will not be engaging with any knew posters until I am sure there is only bloody one of them.

    I like Chancel and I am gutted that he was not who we thought (or I thought) as I seem to remember you had him pegged early on.

  • 123 Jail for Ashley // Feb 19, 2016 at 6:35 PM

    Of course it matters if it was Chancel. He sits on here asking what the wums are playing at, whilst saying he just wants to talk football.

    If true, he’s full of it and is the cause of the wum issues. If not, all will become clear and the blog will still have one of its liked posters back.

    Arthur Bowden Askey CBE (6 June 1900 – 16 November 1982) was a prominent English comedian and actor. Askey’s humour owed much to the playfulness of the characters he portrayed, his improvisation, and his use of catchphrases, which included “Hello playmates!”, “I thank you” (pronounced “Ay-Thang-Yaw”), and “Before your very eyes”.

    So TFL announces his sad self-exile and the paste monkey pops up. Is this a Swansong?

  • 150 Jeffrey // Feb 19, 2016 at 7:14 PM

    The swan song (Ancient Greek: ???????? ????; Latin: carmen cygni) is a metaphorical phrase for a final gesture, effort, or performance given just before death or retirement. The phrase refers to an ancient belief that swans (Cygnus spp.) sing a beautiful song in the moment just before death, having been silent (or alternatively, not so musical) during most of their lifetime. This belief, whose basis in actuality is long-debated, had become proverbial in Ancient Greece by the 3rd century BC, and was reiterated many times in later Western poetry and art.

  • 151 Tsunki // Feb 19, 2016 at 7:15 PM

    I don’t think that this Jeffrey is Chancle / TFL, I have received several emails tonight, some from Belfast (many thanks mate) and some from Chancel, (also many thanks) the ones from Chancel are his exchanges with Ed, but I cannot and would not divulge them without permission.

    Having read them, I do not think he is using any other names at this time, however time will tell, I hope Chancel manages to get what he needs from Ed in respect of his account.

  • 159 Jeffrey // Feb 19, 2016 at 7:23 PM

    The term “smoking gun” is a reference to an object or fact that serves as conclusive evidence of a crime or similar act, just short of being caught in flagrante delicto. Its name originally came from the idea of finding a smoking (i.e., very recently fired) gun on the person of a suspect wanted for shooting someone, which in that situation would be nearly unshakable proof of having committed the crime. The phrase originated in the Sherlock Holmes story, “The Adventure of the Gloria Scott” (1893).[1]

    In addition to this, its meaning has evolved in uses completely unrelated to criminal activity: for example, scientific evidence that is highly suggestive in favor of a particular hypothesis is sometimes called smoking gun evidence. A piece of evidence that falls just short of being conclusive is sometimes referred to as a “smoldering gun.”[

    Firebug…I’ve seen Chancels emails too. I’ve requestd copies of Eds previous emails regarding previous problems, I.E. the posting of links to NUFCDigest.

    So far, it doesn’t look like he has those anymore, but is looking.

    Ed doesn’t clear Chancel in the emails, but says he’ll let him back on, as long as he promises to behave himself. Chancel may well be doing that, hence why he’s still here.

    Clearly the way this is being done is with VPN’s, so how would these emails clear Chancel?

    I’m waiting to see the older emails first. If he’s never been accused of multiple accounts by Ed, or if the email where Ed says he recently changed his email address is incorrect, Chancel will be fine.

  • 162 Belfast // Feb 19, 2016 at 7:26 PM

    Skunki ??

    8Offkey // Jun 21, 2015 at 12:42 AM

    Toonfromleeds – Please can you clarify this thing with Nufcdigest for me. Are you still proclaiming that you have no link to it?

    Nufcdigest’s first post was on the 25th May. On the same day you start posting links to it on this blog but seemingly have never been on this site posting before.

    Strangely, you are from Leeds as per the writer of that blog. When I call you out on this there was a change to the site (on the same day or day after I think) whereby the ‘about us’ page was changed from being produced by one person (Rob Vollans) to say it was a collective of 5 people involved in producing that blog. A day later this was changed again back to the single person.

    A good amount of hits to that site clearly have come through those accessing this site and clicking on the links you provide (apparently people can make money off page hits).

    There have been those before who have done this, Mecannylad and Ruddy the main two to my recollection, however they admitted there links and were shot down harshly, by many on the blog for this.

    You on the other hand dont get the grief they got because you claim there is no link……..yet anyone with a modicum of common sense can see this link.

    I just dont like liars and whilst the site is decent, it is very sly what you are doing on Eds site……and it is simply not right in my opinion.

    Now fella, come on and be honest here……otherwise your as bad as the multiples with your deceit.

    However, you do contribute well to this blog (much more than me) and come across pretty ‘normal’ apart from the above. Can you not just admit your link, keep your name in blue to link to the site (as many on here like it) and make a comment on the story stating that they can read more by clicking on your name……..

    Seeing as everyone is at it.

    “Guerrilla Mail is a free disposable email address service launched in 2006.[1] It offers both the ability to send and receive email. Visitors do not need to register to use the service, they are logged in automatically and a random email address is issued on each visit or they can set their own address. Email is kept for one hour before it is deleted.”

    Blimey! The Salem Witch Trials have got nowt on this place ,,, an innocent contributor (the fragrant Back Door Man) is accused by Ian Toon of being the ‘evil twin’ of Ancient C. Worse still the same fragrant Back Door Man is being branded by Jib as being a Yankee because he doesn’t get “irony”. All Jib’s squirming/deflection/destraction techniques cannot hide the impression that that earlier posting was racist and not irony. Anyway, the fragrant Back Door Man is a true Geordie being born within ‘hocklin’ distance of the Tyne and not suckin’ a straw beside the Mississippi.

    Ibiza…… Ed is aware that Chancel is or was Rob Vollens on his old email but now he has a new email address and is being allowed to post from the new one as long as he behaves himself.
    Surely all the evidence Provided by Belfast of Rob Vollens activities doesn’t give Chancel any hope of being fine!!

    Betty…I am aware of that too.

    I’ve asked James to forward me the emails that apparently clear the situation up, that’s all.

    So far, they’re not forthcoming. I imagine as old emails were to the robvollans email address, but again, that can be cleared up if not true.

    Back Door Man

    I must admit, (bet that opening line got some attention) that the few times I have looked at the blog today that I thought I was logging onto a court room drama.

    I get the impression that some of the people on here would argue with a brick wall.

    Still if it makes them happy who are we to interfere.

    On a more interesting note thanks for the Match info Jib.

    It hopefully will cheer up my bug ridden week although having spent the last few nights with that bl**dy coughing bug and next to no sleep, I’ll probably sleep through it.

    although that could turn out to be a blessing.!!

    With a 26 man squad out there it will be more like a preseason with probably a complete change of personnel at half time.
    Of special note will be what different defensive combinations are tried.

    Belfast, keep the punishments strictly ‘old school’ (like the glorious Mr Tuff’s tar & feather treatment); any reference to a.n.t.r.a.x could be picked-up by GCHQ or the Yankee NSA and you’ll get the 4 o’clock knock and get ‘lifted by the Peelers’ and hauled off to the Maze. Yep, I know th Maze has closed but it sounds better than Maghaberry.

    Incontrovertible evidence is a colloquial term for evidence introduced to prove a fact that is supposed to be so conclusive that there can be no other truth as to the matter; evidence so strong it overpowers contrary evidence, directing a fact-finder to a specific and certain conclusion.

    Examples: a fingerprint showing a person has been present in a room; a DNA test disproving a claim of parenthood.

  • 213 GeordieTwo // Feb 19, 2016 at 8:52 PM

    A long time between matches for us. Many getting cranky on here. A lack of credibility within the club. Little belief from the supporters. Mainly because we’ve seen this story far too often. Even if McCarver survives to the end of the season he won’t be with us beyond that. Yet who would we get in place of him? The Operating Manual speaks to this:
    Chapter 8 Paragraph 6. Replacement of Head Coach/Manager. This can be a very difficult time at the club. We only hire top, top people to be the manager and there are few of those around. That’s why it’s so important to stay in touch with Joe Kinnear.
    😯

  • 214 Jeffrey // Feb 19, 2016 at 8:54 PM

    Joseph Patrick “Joe” Kinnear (born 27 December 1946) is an Irish former football manager and player. Kinnear played as a defender, spending the majority of his career — ten seasons — with Tottenham Hotspur. With Tottenham he won the FA Cup, the Football League Cup twice, the FA Community Shield and the UEFA Cup. Kinnear was born in Dublin, moving to Watford, England at the age of seven. He was capped 26 times for the Republic of Ireland national football team. Following the end of his playing career he has also been the manager of India, Nepal, Doncaster Rovers, Wimbledon, Luton Town, Nottingham Forest and Newcastle United.

    Media and advertising careers

    It might not be an obvious choice for those graduating in psychology, but media careers are hugely varied, with ample opportunities to apply the skills a psychology degree can hone. In particular, psychology graduates can impart valuable insights into human behavior, as well as offering the ability to analyze problems, listen attentively, give considered responses and act with empathy and reason.

    http://www.theguardian.com/money/2010/feb/13/degree-in-pyschology-job-options

    I think you’ll find Jeff that Marketing, Sales & Advertising accounts for 3.7% of Psychology graduate careers, according to the Guardian feature.

    Surprisingly low maybe, but in no way can under 5% be equated with “most”.

    “Most psychology students get gobbled up by the advertising and marketing sections of big companies.”

    When I should have course said :-

    “Most advertising and marketing sections of big companies are in the main staffed by psychology students”

    These stupid mistakes of mine I can only attribute to advancing years and the lateness of posting also being distracted by sport on the telly doesn’t help.

    I hope my mistake didn’t spoil your enjoyment of the blog too much.
