McClaren Speaks After Another Disastrous Display

Thursday, February 4th, 2016 · 18 Comments

Newcastle play West Brom on Saturday and since the game is at home there is a decent chance our players may even turn up for the game.

It´s something they didn´t do last night at Everton and they seemed to play as if they were in a dream – and to think we had 10 days to prepare for this game.

Newcastle’s Horror Show Leaves Club In Real Crisis

Thursday, February 4th, 2016 · 24 Comments

This is not what was supposed to happen as we had just finished a good January transfer window with four good players coming in – and the fans had got some of their enthusiasm back for the club.

But an insipid and pathetic display against an out-of-form Everton side was another case of Newcastle not turning up for an away game and the inconsistency of this Newcastle team continues unabated and we now have 13 defeats in 24 games played.

And we have lost 9 of 12 away games and only scored 6 goals on the road.

Alarm Bells “Should” Be Going Off Very Loud At Newcastle

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016 · 18 Comments

There is no way this newcatsle squad is one of the three worst squads in the Premier League but that’s where we are at the moment 3rd bottom of the league with a measly 21 points from 24 games – the worst we have ever performed in the Premier League.

And who do you look at when the best is not being brought out of the players.

Yes – the players themselves – but the head coach is responsible for getting the best he can out of the players available and Steve McClaren simply hasn’t done that this season.

Alan Shearer Reacts To Awful Newcastle

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016 · 65 Comments

Alan Shearer had it right when he said Newcastle were awful and it was good job Rob Elliot made some good saves for us.

Alan says they were awful tonight – he could just as easily used shocking, disgraceful, insipid, terrible, pathetic – all would have described tonight’s performance – and how much has Mike Ashley paid out for players since last season?

If Mike Ashley wants to have a Premier League club next season he needs to make some decisions – soon – on Steve McClaren – he’s just not good enough and has shown that all season.

That’s the truth.
