Newcastle Fans React To Complete Nonsense From Pundit

We didn’t bother covering the nonsense that Richard Keys wrote recently saying that it was Rafa’s fault that Newcastle are where we are in the league table, and it was nothing to do with owner Mike Ashley.

And there are going to be a lot more pundits taking shots at both Newcastle and Rafa as long as we are in the relegation zone – so be prepared.

The best thing is not to bother reading the nonsense.

It’s definitely a dangerous situation at Newcastle at the moment, but nothing that Rafa cannot fix by getting Newcastle on a good run of games again – wins are what will take us clear of the relegation zone.

And as Rafa keeps saying – every single game is important.

We have to keep supporting Rafa and the players, and however poorly one of our players may have played in a game it doesn’t help by hanging the player out to dry on Twitter.

That only allows articles to be written that makes things a lot worse.

Support the lads and support Rafa and we cannot go too far wrong.

    Richard Keys, professional knuckle dragged and one time presenter, is up there with Mike Ashley with his knowledge and understanding of football

    Off thread ish but

    Thinking back a few years when Mansour was said to be interested in buying NUFC, our caring owner went off to Dubai presumably to talk about a deal.

    Bearing in mind, we’re talking about Mansour, a proud Arab who’s also a Muslim, what does Ashley do? He’s pictured in a bar, swilling beer with Llambias and Wise.

    So he goes to a potential buyer’s Muslim homeland, swills booze and waits for a call from Mansour. Needless to say, that sale never came off and Mansour bought Citeh.

    Ashley’s arrogance, ignorance and total lack of respect for people or protocol seems to be apparent again.

    The man’s a complete waste of space on a planet which is being damaged by greedy folk like him yet Keys seems to thinks that Ashley’s done no wrong? Keys is another waste of space.

    I remember that storyndoing the rounds and Maybe that’s why Staveley is handling the deal this time round. The fat mans reputation precedes him it would seem

    Did Ashley meet Mansour in Dubai? If memory serves me right, no he didn’t. The point I was making is that he rocks up in Dubai and waits for the call from Mansour, in a bar while swilling booze! That’s tantamount to sticking his fingers up at Mansour showing complete contempt for the man!

    As I said, arrogant and contemptuous behaviour by Ashley.

    Richard Keys still has a job in the media commentating on football??

    I thought him and his mate Gray were dismissed for sexual harassment at Sky Sports a few years back.

    Nobody really takes the mysoginist twat seriously then!

    I’ve read him slag off Benitez on a number of occasions to be honest, way before he joined us. It must go back to his time at Liverpool.

    The only reason pundits like Keys comment on Newcastle United or it’s manager is that we are and always will be, big news! We have an aura and when we are successful again as under KK and SBR we will never be out of the news.
    I remember I was on holiday abroad 4 or 5 years ago watching the Toon on tv get hammered 4-0 by Man City among a group of their supporters and at the end one of them said to me “sorry mate I know how you feel, we had that for decades”. To which I replied, “ you have no idea how I feel mate unless you support my team, good night”.
    We are the best supporters in the land and Rafa knows it!

    i think this rant by Keys has been stage managed by Bishop and is yet another orchestrated PR blunder for Ashley

    From one of the tweets above:

    “Richard Keys being a c…”


    How about a bit of consistency on the use of four-letter words?

    Well if Burnley sacked there manager when they were relegated where would they be now. Rafa has done the same job got us promoted same may not have the players to keep us up same. Only fatman or takeover can keep us up. Teams improve in premiership with all the money which we havnt had and probably wont in his pocket. Rafa given the money knows how to deal with big players so back off and let him hopefully get on with it even if we have to build from championship with Staveley and Rafa
