Newcastle Crisis – What Newcastle Crisis?

Chris Hughton, the Newcastle manager has rightly come out today and said there is no crisis at all at Newcastle United.

Chris Hughton – you tell them Chris!

Of course he’s absolutely right and the only thing is that the lads are going through a bad patch right now, but we’ll also have some good patches in the future, like we had with those three wins in a  row before taking just one point from our last three games.

This is a season of consolidation for Newcastle, and we have to expect it to be an up and down season – and that’s just exactly what it’s been so far with some great wins and some terrible defeats.

This is what Chris Hughton told the Evening Chronicle today:

“There’s no crisis here. We are in a healthy position in the league table, which is something we must not lose sight of,”“Our expectations always were that it was going to be a tough season.”

“There are teams that are below us in the division, we know there’s going to be ups and downs and we know we’re going to go through periods where we’re not going to win games.”

“We might surprise a few people with results and have decent runs too. But the important thing is that when we go through a period that is not what we want, then people have to support us – which they have done.”

“The crowd have felt that. There’s been games where they would have been disappointed with the result but their reaction has been very good.” “These are the times when you need as much support as possible.”

Of course things are a little worrying right now at Newcastle with the fans, with just one point from the last 9 available, but we’ll have to trust that we’ll have some good runs too this season.

And if we can do that then we’ll achieve the number one goal this season, which is to stay in the Premier League for next season, that’s all we want.

Comments welcome.

    Well Ed, if we are to win tomorrow, then I might agree with the headline, but our past three results are telling we are in crisis indeed.
    On a brighter note, we are still good positioned at the table, so let’s build on that.

    The crisis in not on the field this weekend, its off the field and once again the money grabbing instincts of Newcastles come to the fore. I live 17 miles away from St James and am expected to take all sorts of risks to get there tomorrow, outside there’s about 12 inches of snow, the roads are covered by hard packed snow with ice in many places. The Highways Agency are advicing people not to travel, but NUFC press ahead with trying to get the game on for I presume the TV money and sod the risks the supporters have to take to get there.

    the club have to make every effort to make the ground and surronding area safe for the fans, if they dont they will be fined! as far as the roads are concerned, thats down to the police to advice! if the police say its high risk for the match to go ahead, then it can be cancelled!

    Ed, its no crisis at all if you call a relegation fight and possible relegation “no crisis.” Hell Ed, lets have some more “easy” home games (no offence meant to those small clubs, eh Ed?) like the two points we have taken from fifteen. Your arrogance kills me.

    Ed, its your attitude to other teams and those like you who get this club relegated. Taking things for granted and being patronising. You have to earn the right to stay in this league. It has nothing to do with the size of the crowd (which is visibly shrinking week on week) and it certainly has nothing to do with a billionaire sitting on his hands. Stoke can afford to spend 10 million on a player and the Scum can afford 13 million on one player but our owner pockets all our transfer money. Go on Ed, tell us what a great owner he is and how he is right behind Hoots. You must be on his payroll. Cashley toady.

    Relegation battle isn’t crisis, it’s a position we were expecting to be in.
