This is getting more strange by the hour and by the day as Newcastle dither around and make no decisions.
While we did say earlier today we shouldn’t get too excited about Lee Charnley possibly making a decision this afternoon, the news is that no decision was made after Charnley had talked to McClaren on the phone.
Yes – we know that will come as an enormous shock to Newcastle fans as Lee is usually so decisive in his decision-making since he was appointed Managing Director almost two years ago.
Steve McClaren was reported to have been smiling broadly when he left this afternoon, after talking to Charnley.
Steve will take the training again tomorrow, Thursday, and as Monday’s game against Leicester City rapidly approaches, don’t be surprised if McClaren gets another stay of execution – maybe through the end of the season.
Lee Charnley – one of the leaders at Newcastle
If that happens we cannot complain when we are relegated.
Here’s Sky Sports Keith Downie’s tweet on what happened this afternoon.
Understand a conversation between Steve McClaren & Lee Charnley took place over the phone; McClaren been asked to take training tomorrow.

On a more serious note – this week since last Saturday’s home defeat to Bournemouth – has been a complete and utter embarrassment to the Newcastle United Football Club – that we have such incompetent people in positions of leadership at the club.
It’s almost unbelievable just how bad they are.
We could say more, but we’ll leave it at that.
