Video – Jamaal Lascelles Truthful Interview After Latest Disaster


Jamaal Lascelles – at least somebody cares about that’s happening

Here is Jamaal Lascelles’ interview immediately after the game for BBC Sport.

Jamaal and Andros Townsend – who scored a fantastic goal today – were the only two Newcastle players who had the courage to come out and face the music after a really poor performance at St. Mary’s this afternoon.

Where were some of our more senior players?

    u start – with the owner and his hired goons who have caused a stinking mess at our football club. It all starts with Mike Ashley and his bargain basement players who are bought cheap in the hope of being sold high for a quick buck, not for quality or ability. Add to that a dictatorial management who impose impossible constraints on the coaching staff who are supposed to work with these players and somehow mould them into a cohesive unit who would be capable of performing at a decent level in the premiership. So here we are teetering on the edge of relegation with a competent manager in Rafa Benitez and that’s it apart from Half a dozen decent players and millions of £’s of Ashley’s money and the shot nerves and pockets of Newcastle supporters laid waste. Lazy players who train but haven’t an ounce of guts to try on the pitch. I’m now inclined to think relegation will be the best outcome possible. A mass clear out of dross from the club, a new board and a quality manager in charge (hopefully Benitez) with money to rebuild and the only bonus in all this is that it is going to cost Mike Ashley a shit load of money. Happy days !

    Holding back from really laying it raw as he stutters back through the media cliches. Shame it takes a 22-year old that came on at 2-0 down to front up, but then he seems upset unlike many of the others alluded to.

    I have no faith that Ashley would appoint competent people to replace Charmless and Carr.

    “There was no sign of the man who effectively built the team (Carr) and you can only shudder to think what chief scout Graham Carr has got lined up for next season if this lot are anything to go by.”

    We can’t even hope that Ashley will get it right if we go down. The last time he was clueless, there was a firesale of players, the club was put up for sale??? and Chris Hughton, who incidentally is my favourite character bar KK and Shearer in Ashleys whole sorry reign was put in charge and lets face it, his spells as caretaker were absolutely woeful. So it was pure luck and the fact that the top earners couldn’t get more elsewhere that got us promoted last time. This time round nobody has a clue if Wijnaldum, Sissoko and Jaanmat etc have relegation buy out clauses and I doubt if anyone wants to pay them 40/60K a week, we could actually find ourselves stuck with their gutless attitudes down at Turf Moor next year.

    This is precisely the problem. Townsend and Lascelles are willing to come before the cameras but they are nice lads. They don’t come across as the type who would inspire you before you go into battle. We don’t have a single character who would make you feel backed up for a fight. The so called senior pros are gutless shirkers and the few with some heart are technically sub- standard. Recruitment has been done 100 times better by clubs like Southampton on a tight budget. Btw, to all the morons back in the summer saying Virgil Van Djik wasn’t good enough for us because he played at such a low level with Celtic, how dumb a statement was that. The man has played 33 consecutive games and is better than our entire defence combined. We need to wise up with our recruitment or we will definitely be ‘doing a Leeds’

    You can tell, at two pints especially, he wants to say more. He wants to call out those who aren’t trying their hardest, but he just stops himself.

    “I don’t know…”

    Yes you do mate, you know full well there’s a bunch of spineless barstewards in that dressing room who aren’t good enough or aren’t up for a fight. And you want to call them out but that would only have a negative effect on the poor dears morale.

    I like him. He says they need confidence but they shouldn’t as they’re grown men, he says it’s not good enough and he actually has the balls to come out and speak to the cameras. If he had a proper leader as captain this boy would be a good solid CB. Unfortunately in this team he’s being asked to be that strong CB when we forget he’s still just a kid, bought for development not for the first team.

    It’s no surprise most of the players underperformed yet again.

    They’re playing for a move out and their gutless performsnces’ll reduce any transfer fees – even though many of them have a reputation for being better than they’ve shown of late.

    Thank you Mr Ashley

    We’re ferked but to be honest we have been ever since they decided to spunk £80m with shteve in charge. A man who twice turned us down and got sacked from all his recent jobs in lesser leagues yet we had to persist and get our man. Shameful.

    And no, it’s not hindsight. The writings been on the wall for years yet it wasn’t heeded.

    Underinvestment year after year then bang, all in one go, the last throw of the dice so to speak with a washed up smirker in charge and it’s backfired spectacularly and as usual it’s us, the fans who suffer. Again.

    Fat fcuker out!

    where do we begin

    every team squad at the club has a losing mentality
    i cant see ashley selling up and i cant see him bringing some1 who can sort the club out

    infact rafa aside i cant think of any1 that could come in and sort us out
    all i can see is us going down then the club will batten down the hatches and try and save cash
    any manager will be substandard second rate that wont cost much money
    and the monkeys on the board will stay cos there cheap and cycle will repeat till we drop to league1

    Could be a blessing in disguise that Janmaat and Taylor will be “injured” for Swansea ! Montero would destroy Janmaat and Taylor would struggle to deal with Swansea’s movement Lascalles back in , Dummett left back and Anita at RB would be a much better option than Janmaat who has given up the ghost

    Siem De Jong needs to start as well and possibly put Colback back in the middle at least he will run for 90 minutes hell even bring Obertan back in

    I expect 5 or 6 changes against Swansea

    We’ve flirted with mediocrity and relegation most seasons and largely pished £80m up the wall this season. All very predictable, foreseeable and avoidable.

    Ship out people like sissoko cisse tiote marveaux taylor colo
    When i watch the team i constantly find myself screaming at sissoko he is quite possibly the worst player i have ever saw pull on our shirt hes an absolute joke … send him back to france he can rot away at a team like lille or bastia the good for nothing wannabee

    Rw- townsend
    Cm shelvey

    Cam- wijnaldum

    St perez

    Bench armstrong and some new players because our squad is dreadful

    Does Carr attend any games or is he busy drinking tea at Club Mondial ?
    Charnley was there today – bet he didn’t travel back on the supporters bus.
    Moncur presumably had gone fishing.
    Ashley was down the casino.
    Wonga were busy borrowing another £25million to cover their debts ! Bet they’re paying less interest than the punters who have to borrow from them .
    And the players thought it was a pre- Championship friendly .

    Abject and dismal the lot of them.

    Welcome aboard Lee Charnleys good ship procrastination, sinking with a ripple, zero lifeboats left but there’s a couple of couple of good swimmers to pull the inflatable tyre….. All aboard lads we can still do it …. It’s either that or you have to play more games next year in the championship ……so what’s it going to be lads……..swim like you’ve never swam before or drown in your own pity party?

    Some teams can handle having one or two gutless wonders in their squad, who get bailed out by the braver/more talented players, but our spineless mercenaries outnumber those who are genuinely willing to fight.

    How anybody can have Janmaat in their team for next season is beyond me. After his ‘performance’ today I’d want him and Taylor out first. Good luck getting a new contract at another club next season Steven!

    Just occurred to me, Carr and Charnley will obviously offer Taylor a contract extension for next season. And probably for an increased salary too. Would that surprise anyone else?

    Its killing me this shower of euro shit we signed. They just don’t care and know that clubs will purchase them if we go down, you can see it in how they play no heart no guts.
    How the flying phuck does Lee Charney still have a job, manager and world class ones get fird for less. Well Mike hows it feel to lose out on 100 plus million due to hiring someone that looks like they should be an accountant and knows nothing about football.

    Yet 52,000 will show up next season in the Championship and in League One if we ever got there and will cite “loyalty” as their reason for doing so.

    Next seasons players.

    Darlow, Elliot, Woodman, Sterry, Lascelles, Mbemba, Dummett, Saivet, Shelvey, Colback, Aarons, Townsend, Perez, Armstrong, Mitrovic.

    Possibly keep De Jong and Bigi…..and Riviere. ah…thauvin, might as well give him a season in the championship.

    Others Satka, Cameron, Gillesphey, Barlaser, Smith, Gilliead

    Bye bye to this lot Wijnaldum, Sissoko. Coloccini, Taylor, Janmaat, Krul, Anita, Tiote, Obertan, Cisse, Marveaux, Haidara, Ameobi, Vuckic, Good

    Go and sign players like Cook, Obita, Hause, Iorfa and Robertson

    Time to rebuild and get young hungry players in.

    So if we’re making the (reasonable) assumption that were getting relegated, who would you choose to keep for the Championship and who would you want out? For me its:

    Maybe Shelvey

    Newcastle will pick up points at home. It’s not over, and only marginally worse than when he arrived. We remain in a three horse race with two other poor teams, with four home games to come with the crowd behind us, and another winnable game against Villa. We are in big trouble, but have been for some time.

    Whats happened to the Rafa boonce? I expected more. I expected better team selection than the same old stalwarts/stars who get a game but merely pull on the shirt. Where is the effort? Rafa has to take some of the blame. The team is demotivated.
