Newcastle Manager Should Be Fired Before It’s Too Late

Thursday, February 4th, 2016 · 122 Comments

The goals for this season following the complete and utter nightmare of last season were to get in the top eight in the Premier League and to win a cup.

That followed last season and a certain John Carver who lost eight Premier League games in a row for the first time ever and he almost had us relegated.

There is no chance of winning a cup since we went out at the second hurdle of the League Cup and at the first hurdle of the FA Cup.

So we are nowhere near our targets for this season following the disasters of last season.

Manager Likely Reflecting On Ebullient Comments To Press

Thursday, February 4th, 2016 · 107 Comments

Steve McClaren tried to find out what went wrong last night at Goodison Park when we were looking forward to watching an improved Newcastle side take on a side that hadn´t won in the league since Everton beat us 1-0 at St. James´ Park.

But what we got was a shocker, where to use words Steve McClaren likes to use – we must have taken five steps back with last night´s disastrous performance.

The Facts – McClaren´s Record At Newcastle Is Abysmal

Thursday, February 4th, 2016 · 27 Comments

We wish it wasn´t so, but when you look at Newcastle´s record under Steve McClaren, maybe the best word to describe it is abysmal.

And after spending £81M on players over the last two transfer windows you wonder how we have got into this mess.

It´s difficult to blame Mike Ashley too much since the end of last season, since he has been willing to spend money like it´s going out of style – but maybe it was just left too late?

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.
