Newcastle will not be buying a center-back this January,  even though we have only two experienced center-backs fit for the rest of the season, after Steven Taylor ruptured his Achilles and will not return until next season.

If Newcastle Safe – Second Half Of Season Doesn’t Matter

Saturday, January 24th, 2015 · 9 Comments

Maybe Newcastle fans shouldn’t hope too much that we have a good first half of the season as we did last season, because then we will likely sell our best player in January, and because we are presumably safe – it really doesn’t matter if we have a bad run – or even a terrible run in the second half of the season – last season we lost seven of the last eight league games – including six in a row – but who cared – we were safe.

Newcastle Looking At New, Better Ways To Communicate

Saturday, January 24th, 2015 · 9 Comments

I have some experience at IBM of leading a large geographically distributed group, and having to communicate regularly,  as we were quickly growing our revenue, and you soon learn that if you don’t communicate well – it’s not long before people make up stuff in the vacuum created, and all kinds of rumors start coming out.

Good regular communications stops all that.
