Twitter Erupts As Steve McClaren Sacked


Twitter has erupted since it was announced that Steve McClaren has been fired less than an hour ago, with fans pleased Newcastle have finally made a decision – which only took them six days.

As usual there are some really funny tweets – from some Newcastle fans and even a Sunderland fan – who accuses us of cheating on their way of winning derbies – by appointing a new manager just before it takes place.

Well – you live and learn as they say.

🙂

Steve-McClaren

Steve McClaren – even he couldn’t watch – it was so bad

    Whilst it has not been handled well, a £2 million golden handshake would sweeten the sack from most jobs, especially when you have done the job so badly!
    In this age of zero-hour contracts, short-term contracts, agency work and masses of EU workers prepared to work for less, I have experienced plenty of shyte in the workplace, but never got a wedge like this! Schteve should just go down to the Beehive for a few trebles – though even the Beehive may not allow his hair in

    chronicle reckon rafa left liverpool at 5 this morning so talk of him coming this afternoon seem strange unless he’s travelling by bicycle!….i think he’s already here and could of possibly already signed his contract maybe thats why the sacking statement has come out now…..just my opinion like.

    Didn’t think anything would happen, however if they don’t get Rafa over the line now they’ll look like a right bunch of amateurs… Oh wait..

    Afternoon guys, just got back from my business trip and first thing I read getting of the plane is Mclaren sacked.

    If I knew this I would have booked a return light for Monday then this might have been all done and dusted by then 🙂 Go figure

    So Benitez is basically signed up from what I can gather and him being the only one in the running meant he had to probably agreed before they sacked McLaren. So it was an easy choice for us but probably hard for the Board.

    The vote was probably 2 vs 2 after Carr found out that Benitez wants full control of transfer. Haha took them a week to figure out to to resolve the vote.

    Whole lot out!!!

    “About time, I don’t think he’s such a classy bloke. I think it’s an embarassment to have failed so badly in his job and if he’d had any class he would have realised a long time ago that he was out of his depth and resigned. It’s shameful but it’s becoming the norm. Ian Holloway walked from Palace a few years ago when he realised himself that he was going to struggle, that’s a manager with dignity, respect and integrity not McClaren he’s just a loser runner off with a lot of the clubs money. Good riddance.”

    When was the last time Rafa Benitez walked away from a job after it turned sour? I am assuming you believe Rafa Benitez is a man with no “dignity”, “integrity”, or “self respect”?

    next nufc official announcement
    We tried in vain to secure Benitez signature as head coach but felt conditions required were not in the best interests of Graham Carr, we have therefore declined his services, Joe Kinnear will take immediate charge of the team for the remainder of the season

    OP

    Oh stop it mate this is too much to even dream of, Newcastle with an actual manager, someone who knows what football is all about, a person who will expect players to do what they are paid to do and perform on the pitch, a man who will be expecting his players to win at least 50% of our remaining games.

    This is turning into a fantastic week for me, missus gone for 50 days, Macca sacked, and Benitez on his way……

    It’s all too much I tell ya!

    Why wouldn’t Rafa take on Newcastle?

    The structure is there for the taken, one of the best grounds in Europe + the best fan base in the Premier League (if you take out the plastic fans from the other clubs)

    We could once again be united into a team and be where we should be in the top 8 every season and all this could happen under Benitez and lets face it it’s been a while since we made someone a legend!

    Indeed mate, but other fans read this blog and are stating on other blogs why would he join Newcastle?

    Same could be said why would Claudio Ranieri join Leicester?

    yeah i get what ya saying mate….but the way this club is constantly in the negative spotlight for doing things wrong…a lot of “big” managers or even decent managers would give us a very wide berth….hopefully this is start of a new way of thinking….whats that saying….”always darkest before the dawn” or something.

    If we get Benitez, it’s a hell of a shout, the club hasn’t dealt with this situation ideally, but Rafa is in the World elite of coaches/managers, as long as we get the fella over the line at the end of the day! He will be tested though to the limit at Barrack Road.

    Hopefully Benitez will turn this around, and instil some pride & passion into that group of misfiring wannabe’s who wear our colours.

    I have every faith that the Spanish Waiter will do the best he can and at least try to get a result in every game left.

    I’m still a little worried it’s the right man at the wrong time, a new manager syndrome win on Monday and a derby win using the scums tactic will make me feel a little better but ATM I’m just praying it isn’t to late.

    Macca should have walked weeks ago to save his reputation.

    I can still see disappointment. Next news will be Ian Cathro to take over, after talks with benitez broke down.

    Anybody fancy a punt at David moyes. They say he’s good for steadying the ship.
