New Report Shows That Things Never Change With Charnley

The Daily Star have a report out about when managing director Lee Charnley hopes to have a new manager appointed. And it is typical Lee Charnley who has the urgency of a highly sedated sloth.

Lee Charnley hopes to have a new manager appointed by the time the team leaves for the Premier League Asia Trophy, which begins on July 17. It is painfully obvious that this club is run in a reactionary and haphazard way with absolutely no planning whatsoever.

They had no plan B for if Rafa would not sign his new contract while at the same time doing everything in their power to ensure that Rafa would not sign the contract. They are now left to scramble to hire some second rate manager.

Yet they are not even doing that. Forget scrambling or showing any urgency to resolve the absolute debacle they have created for this club and its fans.

Lee Charnley is going to go full Lee Charnely again and take his merry time while the building burns around him.

Lee Charnley– moves at the speed of evolution

It took about 15 minutes for Nottingham Forest to announce a replacement for Martin O’Neill yesterday.

It will take three weeks for Lee Charnley to hire someone if we are lucky after he and Mike Ashley burned Rafa Benitez.

The sooner we are shot of this lot the better.

    On another Note Ed who in there right mind would want to come here ?? The worst owners in premier league history no ambitions… Any chance of going forward then they just back peddle… If they say new owners have to be checked by the FA and Premier league as fit and propper owners of a Premier league club why the hell are these lot here… The next manager has to be a journeyman Will get Paid Sod all and most of all Mike Ashleys Puppet like Pardew was…

    Said this yesterday and thought it was worth repeating.

    I’m beginning to think that the only way to get rid of Ashlie is to completely stop supporting the Toon, let the supporters form a new Toon FC perhaps with Gateshead, still easy to get to.

    I don’t know how many the Gateshead stadium holds but if it was packed out for every game they could soon rise up the leagues.

    Once Ashlies club has died which it would, relocate back to St James park and arise like a phoenix reborn!

    One thing that always worried me was this kunt got his salary doubled about a month before we was supposedly being sold, didn’t feel right at the time and now we know its because we ain’t being sold.

    I goggled it.

    The main athletics arena at Gateshead International Stadium is an all-seater, bowl-shaped arena consisting of four stands of seats. The precise capacity of the venue is uncertain; some sources claim it to be 11,750, others 11,762 and some provide a figure of 11,800.

    Would be OK for our initial rise up the leagues.

    Wonder if we could Rafa back, it would be one hell of a project.

    In a rare statement Lee Charnley said the following about the current situation.

    “So that’s milk and two for Keith.

    Milk only for Dennis.

    And how can I forget, the blackest of black, with the tears of small children for the boss”

    – brilliant Neil. Haha I enjoyed reading that.

    Charnley should be out looking for a job if new owners come in. No way should this fool still be at the club. AshLie’s sidekick can fcuk off with The Fat Slug.

    EGB # 4 we should be thinking along those lines lines .Why don’t our fan base adopt the black&white shirt of a local grass roots club, just imagine the world wide publicity that would bling for the cause, any funds raised to be invested into local football. That would really p1ss Ashley if there were 40.000+ shirts walking round the toon without the Puma logo . I think we need to take action from the off and boycott the friendlies and organise a serious plan of attack.

    “moves at the speed of evolution”

    Not so sure about that, evolution means change and there’s nowt like that as far as I can see.

    Have to say that I’m slipping quickly over to the toon22 side of the fence and it really hurts to be saying that.

    Whoever takes the head coach job at Newcastle had better be prepared for a rough ride followed by a serious setback in his career. If he’s a top man like Rafa ( he won’t be) he will demand strengthening as we need players at cf and fullback and midwife Longstaff goes. We all know that’s gonna be bargain basement kids.
    How the hell did we go from a reasonable squad with a top manager, to almost certainly a relegation fight with demotivated players?
    Only Ashley could achieve that but Rafa had him over a barrel end he fell in!
    Neil Redfearn good luck son you’ll need it!

    At E.G.Bill If we all stopped going it wouldn’t make no difference to Ashley because nowadays club income isn’t dependent on season ticket sales or match day income. He knows as long as we finish 17th in the league a big fat cheque of £120m will land on the mat every year from the Premier League.
    The only people that would be affected would be us the fans, by not watching our beloved team.
    This goes out to every NUFC fan, never stop supporting the lads. Managers, players, owners come and go the club and the supporters will always be there. I am proud to say I am a geordie and a Newcastle United fan until I die.

    Far too much talked about the next manager! Not enough talked about why Rafa was not able to sign a new contract. That is the burning issue here, if nothing is sorted now we will just go around again like all the other times and wonder how it could have come to this! We know how it has come to this because it always does and always will as long as the current regimen are in place. This need sorted now and the only way is to boycott, anything else is a wast of time and capitulating AGAIN to the regimen.

    @27, IMHO that is what deluded fans say in order to try and back up a loosing argument.
    If no one was there the T.V broadcaster around the world would know of our plight and associate that with the branding therefore bringing it into disrepute. Also the T.V commentators would also have their say as to why the stadium is empty which is highly unusual for such devoted fans. This is the only way to highlight our situation. Yes game revenue is not what it was but an empty stadium is worth its weight in platinum in this case. No renewals and no one attending home games but going to away games would send a message so great it would send him packing in days. Everything else has been tried, K.K told us all ten years ago what things would be like under this creature, but I bet even he did not expect it to be this bad for this long. K.K Shearer and now Rafa treated like dirt, how can season ticket or supporters allow this to happen at our club. Have supporters/fans been replaced by yes men or just folk who want to fill in their Saturday? I want to be able to go back to St James park, but will not go as long as this regime are in place, I want our club back!!!!!

    Id be quite happy to run on the pitch, handcuff myself to the goal post if others would follow.

    If we did this every game with thousands on the pitch our voices will be heard.

    Season ticket holders need to ask themselves what it would take to stop going. Theyd probably say theyll still go if we’re in the conference. Admirable but doesnt help the bigger picture

    I totally understand fans who will always go to games. Me, I’ve just lost interest and won’t be back till Ashley’s gone. Good luck to everyone whatever you do. Ashley’s simply destroyed my feelings for NUFC. They will come flooding back when the Foch is gone though. Meanwhile, it’s Croft Park for me this season.
