I really don't think the current Newcastle team is good enough to go up. Burnley added experience and made it. Hull tried their best and may still make it. QPR have no expensive players left, maybe next year. But I see promotion potential in Derby, Leeds, any team Warnock will be managing, Burton, Wigan, too many quality teams. Newcastle should try for 6th place and hope to win the playoffs,
Spoony 752"No Midlands club in the Prem!" What about the Champions of England? Didn't you also suggest someone go back to School to get educated? Maybe Geography lessons would help you?
Newcastle fans should take a look at themselves as well as the owner. They were the ones hounding Allardyce and Pardew out. It's all well and good blaming the owner and his cronies but take a look at your behaviour as well
If MA wants to take running NUFC seriously, he would be advised to surround himself with people who know something about football? The sycophants who are good at cutting business deals for him, have not kept NUFC in the Prem? He has taken their bad advice on a number of Coaches & Players who have just not done the basics? He now finds himself with a Mngr & squad not equipped for the Championship?
What makes me laugh is the total nonsense that you read about Rafa Benitez being an ideal fit for Newcastle or Everton. Were people all asleep when Rafa managed Liverpool? This is a manager who can only thrive under a regime who provides an open cheque book and allows him to sign hoards of players. He is never going to be suited to those clubs who's owners have mothballs in wallets.
Of course there will be a clear out. They now need a new manager......one who has experience of the Championship, I would recommend Neil Warnock or Nigel Pearson, and I would reckon at least 10 to 12 championship level players. A few of those currently employed should be looking for new clubs, while others will have escape clauses no doubt. The sooner they start, the better.
The lower divisions are littered with clubs who were once considered big and were very successful. Newcastle just joined them. Reputation and grand delusion is no guarantee that it will ever come right again. What is remarkable about Newcastle as they have had little to crow about over last 50 years but they still have this huge ego and expectation. A bit like the England national team.
its been on the cards a long time for us.managers getting the blame when its the whole regime in place by Ashley thats the issue.i said at the time Pardew was hounded out wrongly. to be fair even he stayed longer than he should have because he loved the fans/club but couldn't work under Ashley!maybe Ashley will learn this time around?i doubt it tho!!
They need a Geordie manager and plenty of Geordie players.That way the club can get its passion and soul back and start to win a few games.
What's with the Scottish football comments? The worst and most boring, predictable league in the world. Only two teams to support - Rangers or Celtic. The other teams non-existent, don't even know why the bother playing... to entertain the canteen staff or stray cat? lol!Back on subject... Newcastle will not get promoted with those players for 5 seasons.. no heart or character.YNWA
Newcastle United deserved to go down, as they say... the table never lies.The fans are just a bunch of lager louts (look at those pics lol), who demanded Pardew and Big Sam sacked... how fitting that Big Sam saved Sunderland.No Midlands club either in PL, BONUS!John, I don't get it. You'll never alone? (if you remove walk) doesn't make sense. Go back to school and get educatedYNWA
Dear Mr Benitez do what is right for you Newcastle's board and fans are fickle in the extreme they have sacked managers for no reason and the abuse that was screamed at Sam Alladyce by loyal Newcastle supporters they do not give loyalty and do not deserve any in return, Big Sam saved Sunderland and that must really irk.
