Newcastle have already waited too long to fire Steve McClaren and the club should have done that after the Chelsea fiasco before Steve with his disgraced players jetted off to southern Spain for a warm weather camp, where they managed to have their captain injured – even though Colo didn´t even play in the game against Lillestrom.
Newcastle want stability and therefore they don´t want to keep firing managers which we did in the Freddy Shepherd era.
But we are now at the other extreme, where everybody knows that if Steve McClaren had the record he has at any other football club he would have been gone by now.
Steve McClaren last night at Stoke
Here´s Steve´s league record at Newcastle.
But Newcastle will still not do anything before the game at home to Bournemouth and then if we don´t win that game we will be in even deeper trouble and the Board and Mike Ashley may already have waited too long to fire their inept manager.
Firing McClaren seems the only hope now to save Newcastle and we really don´t understand why Steve is still in the job.
The Board and Lee Charnley in particular are reluctant to fire Steve because Lee appointed him and it was always going to be a poor appointment after McClaren wasn´t good enough at Derby County and was fired there only days before he was appointed Newcastle manager.
Somebody from the club needs to explain to the fans just why Steve McClaren was appointed in the first place last summer.
Certainly our readers in April did not want to see McClaren get the job.

Those who run Newcastle have helped us get into this terrible position we are now in, where it looks doubtful we can survive and it looks like a three-horse race between Newcastle, Sunderland and Norwich as to who should go down with those three clubs tied on 24 points.
We are a full 6 points behind 5th bottom Swansea who won at Arsenal last night.
Charnley and company have been missing on the job for too long – just like the man they appointed – Steve McClaren.
By keeping the former England manager in the job they are only making it more certain we will be relegated.
They are taking Newcastle down with Steve McClaren as the head coach.
It´s OK being loyal but when the man in charge continually shows he´s not good enough then he must go or else the club is put in extreme jeopardy.
Unfortunately those running the club cannot be accused in any way of being good managers – where for instance did Lee Charnley get his senior management training or experience from?
Some of the utterances we have heard from Lee tell us he doesn´t know the job he is in or wjat his responsibilities in a crisis.
He doesn´t know what to do as he proved last seoasn with the John Carver fiasco.
And now it looks like come May we will be a Championship club and miss out on the massive TV rights money that kicks in this summer.
We have done it to ourselves by mismanagement at the club at all levels this season.
Newcastle United have massively let their fans down.
