Former Superstar Sad With Newcastle’s Lack Of Caring


Former star striker Tino Asprilla is like the rest of us and very upset at the way our players performed yesterday at Southampton when too many of them didn’t seem to care.

Those same players will be the ones clamoring to get out of the club just as soon as possible once the season ends and we are a Championship club.

Asprilla also takes a swipe at the club itself and says they don’t seem to care either.

    Time you put another button in your vote best player – no-one
    As after that display I struggle to pick a player out.

    Lascalles maybe for speaking the truth.

    Wonder what odds the bookies will give for Rafa – not getting a win – odds on.
    And he won’t if he keeps selecting Taylor and Janmaat – shi* defenders

    The longer players stay at this club, the worse they seem to get. It’s like a curse.

    As somebody posted yesterday, it’s the culture at SJP that’s rotten. Players come to NUFC thinking they’ve joined a football club only to find it’s a branch of Sh*t Direct.

    A very sad first half performance that I nearly did not return for the second. Was happy to see an improvement, with some excellent interchanges, brisk passing, determination to get forward. The defence was helped by the fact they dropped off, but they also counter attacked well.

    I thought Townsends goal was an individual marker and could have been a platform to build from. But no the team became mediocre again and struggled to get any more efforts on target, three the whole match!!!

    Apart from the obvious players filling in and not their usual positions, the team lacks any cohesion and balance. De Jong in the centre made things flow better than Wijnaldum and Shelvey is not a defensive midfielder so the back line lacks protection.

    The whole set up is a mess throughout all the playing squads and being a coach at Nufc must either be like hitting your head against a brick wall, or a resignation to inadequacy.

    Cyprus,
    Would you suggest I make a Rafa out bedsheet to take to the Swansea game. Just to let the rest of the country know that we don’t ghink he’s good enough for our high flying club.

    Aldo, you don’t need Tony Pulis to play four Central Defenders and Full backs as Wingers. A solid back line of four with an organised midfield, it just needs to be drilled into players and to attack space. Not very difficult concepts unless your the type of player that believes that success is provided by individual brilliance.

    Munster who’s been banging the Carr drum for years now (did he mention that) and now Cyprus are saying that Carver and Mclaren would have been better than Rafa. We this whole situation has been engineered by managers who were so desperate for a job they were willing to let that absolute joke of a board make the footballing decisions who in turn were put together by a tat shop owner trying to force his unworkable way of running a football club.

    Mclaren was so desperate for a job he just grinned inanely when they told him we didn’t need to strengthen a regular -20 defence. Who fcukin decided that.

    Anita and Sissoko as full backs, people ringing BBC Newcastle yesterday saying we should play the kids in defence. Do they realise that under Beardsley they are used to even more 3+ hidings than their hapless counterparts.

    We need to win every home game and Villa away to stand a chance of avoiding the drop. Five out of six wins.

    I have come to a place of accepting our fate. The three worst teams at the end of a 38 game season go down. I can’t argue that we are amongst the three worst teams this year along with Villa and Sunderland (take Defoe out the equation and Sunderland would be where Villa are).

    Having accepted our fate I now feel a sense of excitement about next season.

    Had we survived wed have made a couple of mediocre additions to a rotten squad, we’d be flirting with mid table at best and enduring the same gutless performances from the same over paid over hyped players like Sissoko.

    Now though whether we like it or not there has to be wholesale changes. We’ll lose four players at least through the end of their contracts. We’ll lose at least four more who will leave for clubs in the top leagues. Hopefully the likes of Thauvin, Cisse, Coloccini and Tiote will be shipped out too.

    Next year we’re looking at a new manager, new players and a lower standard of football from our opposition. When was the last time you saw Newcastle boss a game? Even the victory over Norwich earlier in the season where we scored six we could easily have conceded seven. As bad as it is that we’re doing it in a lower league, I’m looking forward to seeing a Newcastle side playing well and taking the game to teams. That’s something that we wouldn’t see if we survived in the premier league.

    The squad is full of dead wood, relegation clears the decks and allows for a new start. And to me that’s more exciting than surviving by the skin of our teeth and having another year of mediocrity.

    Bring it on!!

    People blamed our over paid mercenaries last time we went down yet KK had them playing well in the end. Ashley was applauded for not buying over priced superstars yet here we are facing yet another relegation. Whether it be cancelling goal bonuses etc there is something seriously wrong behind the scenes that has this collective lack of effort from several different groups of players. Every time Ashley has stumbled upon even a hint of success he has decided that it’s the wrong way to do things and dismantled it.

    I’ve become used to the likes of McClaren, Carver, Kinnear under this stewardship…in reality are we likely to get worse than those three?

    So my expectations are low. We’re not going to get a top level manager, but I doubt we’ll have much worse than what we’ve had to stomach in recent years.

    It’s not that long ago this website had links for ‘in Carr we trust’ t-shirts. Hard to blame Ashley for trusting him too in that context. This ‘top to bottom’ stuff is wrong for me but it’s obvious the system hasn’t worked and that charnley and Carr have messed up. Absolute disaster getting relegated, especially as the finances will be hit hard given what we spent this season. I hope Ashley is prepared to keep us afloat long enough to come back. I guess he’ll have to if he wants any return on his asset.

    I think Ashley will probably start cutting his losses, rake the parachute payments in, big push to offer the season tickets and get that money up front. The sponsors will be getting jittery and whoever they a replaced by won’t be be generous. I give Ashley one season in the championship, if we aren’t promoted he’ll carve up and bale out. Then we’ll have to see how good this club can be at surviving the championship for a few years like Leeds.

    We bounced last time after relegation, this bounce will be smaller, too small to be promoted this time I feel.

    Before we even think about a new manager there has to be a complete clear out of that shambolic board. They’ve been put in place because Ashley trusts them yet they’ve just spunked 80M+ and got us relegated. Surely it would have been better off in the hands of experts he didn’t trust.

    I don’t think he was joking when Ashley said ‘he’s stuck with newcastle’. Nobody wants to buy it for anywhere near what he’s put in (he’s tried how many times?) and the price isn’t getting any higher these days. He’s also too proud to lose that badly.

    Last time we went down the team was far far better,we had a core of players who strolled through the league.
    Looking at our current team i only see Mitro,Lacells,Elliot and Townsend, maybe one or two more in the entire squad.
    We aint coming back up this time,maybe if that gets rid of MA its worth it.

    I cant believe how bad we are. The 11 players are a joke, no bookings? Really fighting for the cause. It was pathetic, I normally watch local football and you see people trying Newcastle do not try its that simple.

    I think Ashley’s fantasy is selling for a profit after ‘winning something’ so he gets a bit of redemption. So far in life he’s got where he wants because he’s stubborn and driven to prove himself. I think losing is embarrassing for him. I actually think he could be a good owner if only he could find the right people to surround himself with. Chris Mort seemed decent but maybe it’s time to poach someone with actual experience from another club.

    We won’t get hit financially considering 30+million in profit +sales from players.

    It’s enough to rebuild the squad in the championship starting with Hughes and Ince.

    Sir Braveheart

    Iv’e said the same for days for us to rebuild in the championship which is probably why I feel more optimistic now that we are getting relegated rather than fighting to stay in the premier league.

    Guy’s honestly the Championship is somewhat a godsend for us, but before that we need to voice our concerns to Carr and Charnley and get them out ASAP!

    the players are not good enough,and playing with no confidence is like a double whammy….that 1st goal yesterday was nothing short of pathetic and spineless,but its been there for years whether at the start of the 1st half or the start of the 2nd,they always start slow,just lack the intelligence to know that from whistle the opposition can score and be sharp enough and prepared for that fact…its ridiculous tbh…..roll on swansea…heres hoping.

    he just seems to make bad decision after bad,but there is so much to sort out right thru from top to bottom, i wonder if there was a bid put in he might take it and wash his hands of the whole thing….there is a lot to sort out,coaches,managers,scouts,facilities,senior transfers,under 21’s,youth,the board…so much and a lot of work tobe done and significant investment at all levels other wise its just painting over the cracks.
