Steve McClaren – the goal’s that way

We are trying to very quickly gauge what Newcastle fans feel about McClaren after last night’s fourth defeat in the last five games – and let the club know the feelings of the life blood of the club – you – the fans.

Thanks.

    The trouble is the people who would fire SM, ie Charnley and carr need removing themselves. The unholy trinity have a cabal of vested interests and will not look to unseat each other

    He should only be fired if a suitable replacement is brought in. I would expect the summer to be a better time to get a manager in rather than hoping that someone can scrape a few wins with a team they are unfamiliar with and with players they’ve never managed/coached before. Tbh I don’t think it’ll happen. We can rightfully be upset with the way that the team played and the results, but I don’t see McClaren getting fired because I don’t think the club have the ability to bring in a better alternative right now.

    Not really sure what good a poll will do, anyone with any sense can see, feel and hear the opinions of most NUFC fans and lets face it our voice will never be valid all the time that cretin Mike Ashley is in charge as he will do what HE wants to do when HE wants to do it not when we decide because it’s his play thing and he don’t care about the club like we do.

    355-8 and I am number 355!
    18 days to come up with that- why Gouffran?
    If we do not win on Saturday I think we are down and it will be too late to sack him, anyway.
    We are supposed to be fighting for PL survival and It takes 90 minutes to trouble their keeper, whilst we have 3 strikers twiddling their thumbs on the bench. 2 wins in a row, our 2 games in hand and we could have been nearly safe, but we try to park our knackered bus!

    I see Makro has 14 votes. They include Charnley, Carr, Ashley, Costco, Simpson, Black and Jib. Also a few others who mistakenly hit the wrong button.

    Supposedly good, available within reach managers: Rodgers, Moyes

    Dipstick Disciplinarian: Pearson

    Top bucks short term guarantors of PL status: Mourinho, Benitiez

    My personal wildcard: Ginola – why? Highly critical of Pardew’s negative style a few years ago when doing an interview talking about his coaching badges and how he’d like to manage NUFC one day. Has an appreciation for flair, understands NUFC culture and what the fans love. Just an impressive individual, a winner, confident without arrogance and has natural leadership qualities. The only thing is, why if he was doing his badges a few years ago hasn’t he took the leap into management yet!?

    Any are preferable to McClaren who is without doubt taking us down, even the obnoxious Pearson. Heck, I’d rather Cathro be promoted to manager and Schteve and Simpson kicked out.

    I must admit i got it wrong i thought schteve would come good for us! he needs potting quick. We have a defence that cant defend, strikers who cant hit a barn door, wingers who cant cross and a midfield with as much bite as my daughters goldfish oh and a manager that cant manage. WE ARE DOOMED!!!!

    Then we will be relegated for sure Maddison Toon.

    The incompetent, clueless, bland dinosaur should be fired immediately.

    But hey, we keep hearing we have too much to go down.

    Most of the players bought since Wally has been here are utter shyte.

    Why Perez doesn’t get a look in is anyone’s guess, that alone shows Wally had not a clue

    Do you think the club have the ability to bring any of those managers in? Ashley’s hiring record of managers, particularly in the last 12 months doesn’t show any ambition. Aside from if the manager would be good here, who would want the poisoned chalice that is Newcastle? As SM rightly said about transfers, you need there to be interest from both teams and the player, for a manager to come we need interest from NUFC to bring them in (which I don’t think they have for anyone) and an interest from the manager to actually come in and take the position at NUFC (which I don’t think anyone is too thrilled about).

    Some of us could see this struggle coming in the summer. It wasn’t hard. You just needed to look at the shambles of last season’s team, the inept transfer window and Makro’s c.v.

    Makro’s a poor manager. What became obvious by September was that we needed a miracle worker.

    Rating the worst underachievements in British football in last 20 years.

    1) McClaren spending £80m and relegating Newcastle.
    2) McClaren failing to qualify for the Euros with England’s Golden Generation
    3) Roeder taking West Ham down with Joe Cole etc
    4) Joe Kinnear taking Newcastle down with a team of big names.

    Going back further I would add Souness dismantling the great Liverpool side with players like Mike Marsh. And I’d maybe add Pardew almost taking West Ham down with Tevez and Mascherano. And Moyes finishing 7th with Man U.

    I don’t agree with Claridge. The squad is poor. No natural goalscorer and an awful defence. A recipe for killing confidence.

    Yup, Perez should be playing as our most advanced player every week. The quality of his finishes since he’s been here in and around the penalty box speak for themselves and if he’d got Mitro’s chances he’d likely be in double figures this season. Why is our best instinctive finisher either played out wide, on the bench, or asked to play alone up front in a system that doesn’t suit him? Same happened with Cisse and it ultimately ruined him as a ST.

    I just thought with the team left in such a mess after carver it may take a while to turn it around B&B. But nothing is changing in fact we are getting worse.

    We need some kind of instant boost and only a new manager will achieve that i think!

    the sad thing no one was in place to replace AP and you can bet there isn’t anyone now. Charmless doesn’t do long termism or forward planning. Ash and his roll of dishonourable cohorts are taking us where nobody wants to be.

    Poor game last night with conditions not conducive to good football.
    A draw would have been a fair result with only two real effects on goal. They scored with a wind assisted screamer from Shakiri, Butland saved our only real effort from Doumbia. PL games are decided on such narrow margins and results are so unpredictable as the other games show. McC is definitely not comfortable trying to set up to nullify the opposition even though he almost managed the draw last night which would have just about kept people calm.

    He is running out of time now to implement his methodology which will provide the results we need to stay up. The club have stated that they won’t be panicked into making knee jerk decisions , that means he’s staying so we are just going to have to get behind him and the lads and hope and pray that our home form will keep us up.

    the new methodology is no different to what has gone before, ie park the bus, surrender 80% possession away from home.

    If you yield so much in half your fixtures what kind of methodology is that.

    “And for our uninspiring leader to declare that we were hard-done by – again – insults “all” of those who witnessed this disgraceful display and who vented their anger at the end of the game.”
    Jib,
    I know it makes you think your a better fan by sticking by your man but making stuff up to defend him makes you look a bit pathetic, you said that a majority of fans were supportive.

    agree with you about only seeing a new manager lifting this shower,i commented earlier about picking up 9 points from the next 4 games as crucial to any survival tilt and a new manager would need installing now for best affect…..cant see it happening unfortunately…….as for perez i agree with u again he should be one of the 2 strikers maybe drop sissoko and play gini there… leave shelvey and a grafter in the middle

    I think this clamoring for McClaren to get fired is pointless. As you point out, the club have made it a point that they won’t be pulled into knee jerk decisions. Although many don’t feel this would be a knee jerk decision, the club do and that means we have SM until the end of the season for better or worse. Don’t we remember how terrible Carver was? He stayed through the end and we weren’t safe until the dust settled on the final match day. I can’t see us getting anyone in before the summer so what is the point of all the fuss?

    Why would ash and charnley do such an instant crowd pleasing, hugely morale lifting thing like that…lol!!

    Ginola would be an awesome shout. You’ll alway get dullards saying he’s got no experience.

    Well in my ever increasing opinion the experience of our last few managers could not have caused more damage.

    He should of been sacked weeks even months ago. I honestly thought he couldn’t do any worse than Carver but he’s proved me wrong. Any other club wouldn’t of put up with him for this long but this is nufc.

    You can’t be arguing that we’re in the mire because the squad’s poor. Apart from the early summer signings that McClaren had foisted on him, he was around for the winter window.

    Additionally, he’s supposed to be a board member and could and should have vetoed the sale of Willo and insisted on a quality CB tone signed. He didn’t and even said he was happy with the squad.

    Now he’s saying he can’t understand what’s wrong. He’s the HC and it’s his job to get the best out the players available to him. We’re we scoring hatfulls you could say he’s getting the best out of our AMs and strikers I could live with your argument. We’re not and what’s more, the players can’t turn it on when they’re playing away from SJP. It’s the job of the HC to motivate his players – McClaren can’t even do that.

    He’s trying his best but I isn’t good enough and his reputation as a failed manager was well documented – yet Charnley still recruited him when the likes of Klopp was available.

    McClaren should’ve been relieved of his duties as HC long ago and maybe used as DoF – over Carr.

    Yes, but who couid we get now? Money talks and where there’s a will on Ashley’s behalf, there is potential out there – but removing McClaren as HC would be an admission of Charnley’s incompetence.

    We need a change quickly as it’s clear the players have little or no confidence in McClaren who should’ve been replaced weeks ago. It’s probably too late now – unless the clubs around us have a long losing streak a d we luck up points here and there.

    What a shambles

    Play Doumbia and Perez up front together, Perez will drop off and be the link between midfield and Doumbia.

    We need Perez’s intelligence and Doumbia’s directness
