In what has been our worst season ever in the Premier League, Newcastle will finish it off tomorrow – so to speak – with a final game at home against Tottenham, who are currently in second place – and it will be the last Premier League game for Newcastle for at least one season.
Due to the ridiculous and failed scheme of having Graham Carr and Lee Charnley choose the players who come in, with the head coach seemingly completely irrelevant, we managed to spend (waste?) £82M this season and still will probably finish 2nd bottom of the league and the club has been in the bottom four all season long.
The Board also picked a coach who had just been sacked by a Championship club and then proved at Newcastle why he had been fired by Derby County less than a year ago.
The completely and utterly incompetent Lee Charnley
If Charnley and others will not change their failed system and are allowed to remain in their current roles, we will also be unsuccessful in getting Rafa Benitez to stay at the club and will remain in the wilderness for some time – such is the seriousness of our current situation.
We hope Mike Ashley will hold those responsible for this debacle fully accountable – people at the club will soon be losing their jobs because of this rampant incompetence.
And it could all so easily have been avoided if we had a Board who could make some decisions – rather than waiting and waiting on their head coach choice of Steve McClaren, until he had only 24 points from 28 games.
Our goose was already cooked by the time he was fired.
Newcastle are now at their lowest point for around 24 years, since the great Kevin Keegan came in and started to build his team of Entertainers.
It’s a disgrace and as usual at Newcastle it’s the fans who suffer the most.
