Geremi Still Worried About Newcastle Premier League Plight

Newcastle United’s Cameroon midfielder, Geremi, could still play a big part in ensuring Newcastle remain in the Premier League this season.


Geremi – on International duty with Cameroon

Geremi is nothing if not an experienced player, and it has to be the experienced lads at the club we will need to rely on, if we are to avoid the drop this season.

Geremi is on International duty with Cameroon, and we have to hope that he doesn’t come back to Newcastle with an injury, like Damien Duff did a couple of days ago from Dublin.

And today Geremi has admitted it’s hard for him to put Newcastle’s relegation fight  to the back of his mind during this International week.

He told Football365 today:

“It is difficult to divide your attention,”

“One is half thinking about how to help Cameroon qualify for the World Cup and also thinking about helping my club avoid relegation.”

“But there is only so much one can do. So I have to concentrate on the national team assignment to make sure we get victory so when I return back we can continue to fight to help the club avoid relegation.”

We’re pleased to hear that Geremi is concerned about Newcastle’s plight, and so should every other player at the club.

Newcastle have one of the highest wage bills in the Premier League, and are now in 3rd bottom place, and that has to be a study in incompetence and poor management.

But as Danny Guthrie said yesterday, it’s now up to these vastly overpaid Newcastle players, to start earning their wages and pull this club to safety.

If they showed half the spirit and will of the Newcastle supporters, the club would hardly be in this kind if difficulty.

If Newcastle do get relegated, heaven forbid, they will go down in history as the most under-achieving squad ever in the Premier League – and they’ll deserve that title.

Comments welcome.

    Are the players finally starting to realise that the newcastle gravy train is coming to a halt? The players are living off former glories (butt,duff,viduka,geremi etc) yet still getting payed superstar wages. The majority of players will have to take massive wage cuts to move on. None will get similar contracts.

    If the club does manage to stay up there needs to be a major clearing out of old dead wood. The club is a who’s who of yester year.

    I don’t mind the club paying superstar wages if they get superstar performances in return, but that just doesn’t seem to be the case at Newcastle.

    I think the ideal balance is to have 3 or 4 ‘superstars’ (and by that I mean more-experienced, proven Premiership performers) surrounded by talented youngsters who can learn from them.

    We have a few talented youngsters (Seb, Jonas, Martins etc.), a lot of mediocrity and no ‘superstars’ that actually perform like ‘superstars’ for us.

    I think Ashley’s plan to turn us around on a shoestring budget is flawed because we don’t have that reliable ‘core’ of top class players to build around.

    Oi Oi!!

    I cannit believe Stardust is still trying to justify Ashley and his cronies.
    I am fizzin!!!

    For all of you’s who react to his blogs, don’t!!

    I have known him for ten years from work. He is not clever, quite the opposite!!

    He knows how to wind you’s up. He believes what he says about Ashley but deliberately does it in a way to undermine you’s all.

    It clearly works cos I constantly log in but don’t post. He is howling at you’s all!!

    The best way to get rid of a pest is to ignore him.

    He will get bored and his horrible views will go away.

    Bear in mind, HE IS NOT, NOT, A SEASON TICKET HOLDER!!!!

    Radomir Antic for manager..Good, attacking football…
    Radomir Antic (born November 22, 1948) is a Serbian former football defender and current football manager.
    Following a 17-year playing career – mainly modest and uneventful by top football standards – he found his true calling in coaching.
    He is the only individual who has managed FC Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid. Additionally, Antic is one of only two men to have managed both FC Barcelona and Real Madrid (the other one is Enrique Fernández Viola).

    Teams managed :
    1988-1991 Real Zaragoza
    1991-1992 Real Madrid
    1992-1995 Real Oviedo
    1995-1998 Atlético Madrid
    1999 Atlético Madrid
    2000 Atlético Madrid
    2000-2001 Real Oviedo
    2003 FC Barcelona
    2004 Celta de Vigo
    2008- Serbia

    God, we are in deep trouble if Geremi is going to play an important role in our resurrection.
    Geremi, Smith, Viduka, Butt are well past their sell by dates.
    Owen is always injured. Past his best in any case.
    The midfield cannot score. Oba gets about 8 goals a season. Is it any wonder we will get relegated when you throw into the equation a clueless manager and an owner who is asset stripping the club. Lets give the management a contract extension for relegation. Nice one Mike. Anybody who could keep the club in the Prem gets the sack.

    Question for MA
    Mike do you now think it was a good idea to sell Given, millner and Inzogbia for a total of 24 mil and buy Nolan and Taylor as their replacements for 6 mil?
    Whats happened to the 18 mil Mike?
    Is it a good idea to keep Hughton as manager with 2 pts out of 30? A contract extension for him and sickly JK?
    Do you think you have totally mismanaged the club?
    “No comment.” No change there then Mike. Thanks for the insight.
    “I own the club and I can do what I like so, you and the rest of the sc… I mean fans can …….. off”
