McClaren Left Drifting In The Wind By Charnley

Just like Lee Charnley says nothing to Newcastle fans – and we still haven´t heard the man talk – he is continuing his terrible communication skills and apparently has not even talked to Steve McClaren – who took training yesterday.

The news is that McClaren is becoming frustrated because of the lack of contact he has received from his fellow Board members since Saturday night, when his fate was sealed with one of the worst performances for a very long time from a bunch of wimps who wore black and white shirts.

Let´s just say it was a disgrace to our great club.


Steve McClaren – a typical pose this season
Yes – it´s hard to watch

We have to remember the Newcastle Board wanted to back McClaren until the end of the season, but reportedly know he must now be replaced,  mainly because of the fans’ outrage at the Board for the inept way they manage the club.

McClaren is now waiting to hear his fate,  and the latest news last night was that it will not be until Thursday – maybe at the earliest – before the Board have done something and they announce Steve will be sacked.


This is unacceptable and their overall management and man-management skills are simply a disgrace.

It reminds us of last May when Jonas Gutierrez after seven years at the club and Ryan Taylor after six and a half years at the club were told their contracts would not be renewed.

They were very popular players who had overcome great hardships by showing immense courage while  at Newcastle – Jonas with fighting testicular cancer successfully and Ryan with recovering from two terrible ACL knee injuries and playing again for the first team.

John Carver told them via cell phone their contracts would not be renewed – and John would have received that news from the Managing Director.

Such is the amateurish and non-caring way in which this club has been run under owner Mike Ashley.

Did I say it was a disgrace?
