Mike Ashley has probably already learned that Lee Charnley – the man he appointed as Managing Director just less then two years ago – doesn´t have much of a clue in the job he has taken at Newcastle.
And chances are nothing will be done before Saturday´s game at home to Bournemouth.
Lee freezes in a crisis and does nothing – as we found out last season when John Carver almost got us relegated with one point out of 10 games before we won the last game of the season against West Ham.
Lee Charnley and Mike Ashley
Don´t they want to save Newcastle?
We were very lucky last season with the club being mismanaged at the coaching level and at the senior management level – but we will not be so lucky this season.
Lee will do nothing to fire the guy he hired and it was always a hopeless choice by Lee to bring in Steve McClaren – the fired Derby County manager.
That´s been proved by his results – it´s not just an opinion.
So what are Newcastle going to do now?
We assume nothing and if we beat Bournemouth on Saturday it will be the same old thing and Steve McClaren will be left in charge – but he will take Newcastle down this season if he is not removed
We need Mike Ashley to come in and fire Steve McClaren right now before Saturday´s game and appoint somebody who can at least be watching in the stands against Bournemouth,
In that way the players will want to impress their new manager and play well and the fans will be delighted that we may even have a chance of survival this season with a new capable manager on board – whoever that is.
At the moment what seems certain is that Steve McClaren will be taking us down to the Championship in May.
Does anybody at the club want to save Newcastle from that?
