The Fans Forum meeting tomorrow night should be interesting and we assume Lee Charnley, who was responsible for the hiring of Steve McClaren and is the leader of the Newcastle Board – who have made some strange decisions in the transfer market last summer and in January – will say something about the desperate position Newcastle find themselves in.
After last season we were supposed to be making our own luck.
It´s some luck we have been made – and it´s been expensive luck too.
Lee Charnley – must answer the tough questions
Lee should also be forced to answer some really difficult questions about how the team is where they are now – when we have spent more money than any other club in the Premier League this season.
Why hasn´t the defense been strengthened after it´s been a weakness for years – and why didn´t we bring in a proven Premier League goalscorer when we have found it difficult to score goals over the last two season?
He also should be asked why he thought a Championship manager who had just been fired by Derby County – was ever going to be good enough for Newcastle.
Will the Board keep the manager in place this season if results don´t improve – even after what happened last season with John Carver – when in the 10 games before the final game of the season – John had presided over 9 defeats and one draw?
Lee is known for not wanting to go back in time and answer the difficult questions associated with the many mistakes Newcastle have made since he took over the top executive job at the club in April two years ago.
But he needs to be accountable for most of them – and Monday night is a good time for him to explain some of the weird decisions made by the Newcastle Board – which he leads.
From what we can tell the lack of decisiveness of the Newcastle Board in the midst of our worst season ever in the Premier League could well take the club down this season.
That´s our big worry – they will do nothing and we will be relegated.
