We were fairly confident at this time yesterday that Steve McClaren would be fired by now, but the incompetence and dithering ineptitude seems to have continued by those managing Newcastle.
And Steve McClaren is still in charge and will lead the training today, but Mike Ashley, Lee Charnley and company cannot be allowed to do nothing and must bring in a new manager to give us some (small) hope of salvation.
Rafa Benitez – when told Newcastle fans want him
As my son succinctly texted me yesterday about the situation, when it looked like McClaren would not be fired:
“They have no idea what to do – the dithering idiots.”
Yes – that about sums up the ineptitude at the top of the club right now.
With over 10,000 votes in – one vote per reader – it’s Rafa Benetiz who is the fans’ choice to replace the woeful Steve McClaren – who should never have been given the Newcastle job in the first place.
Steve’s appointment will cost us our second relegation in seven years under owner Mike Ashley.
We trust those who made that disastrous choice will be held accountable in May.
