Newcastle United needs serious sorting out

NUFC - Second loss in a row in the second tier of English football

Yesterday Newcastle slumped to their second successive defeat on the road in the Coca Cola Championship. After going behind from some poor defending, we managed to equalise through Kevin Nolan, and it was a very good goal indeed, Premier League quality to be fair. However, we dropped out of the game again and conceded again with ten minutes remaining. After some petty pressure the final whistle sounded and Newcastle are now no longer on top of the division. What makes it worse is the fact only about half the players seemed bothered.

Indeed we must say one of the players was Argentina’s finest in Jonas Gutierrez who of late, has a habit of shooting, any time he gets the ball in a decent area. We’re sure it’ll come off at some stage Jonas.

The main thing about this loss is we have been proved yet again that there is need for huge changes at the club, and it must start at the top, ie. owner Mike Ashley. It’s time he left, but it seems as if Barry Moat can raise the cash to buy him out, and as for Sheard and his consortium, I’ll let you finish that one.

It seems that Shearer will be looking elsewhere to get into management although we’re pretty sure he was always open to offers. Whether Chris will take the permanent job is another thing but needless to say, we need a big shift in things.

If we can sort ourselves out, like getting a definite owner, a permanent manager and some new players who want to fight for the badge on their shirt, then we could challenge for the play-offs but how long have we been saying this for? Far too long.

Comments welcome 🙂

Mike Ashley bought a football club that had a realistic chance of challenging for europe. He somehow turned us into a championship outfit. Appointing Chris Hughton full time confirms just what we are. At best a good championship side that may be promoted but would then scrap for survival like Hull Wolves etc. If he stays it will be a disaster and as fans we must let a voices be heard. Forget about other fans saying we expect too much. I dont give a toss about thier clubs they shouldnt about ours. Oh & how on earth has Ashley's appointed investment group failed to find 1 single genuine buyer. Are we really going to sit back and keep taking this.

Its a pitty to see NUFC struggling. Iam fearful we are going down. God created Ashley to destroy NUFC. wat a shame!!!!!!

Been saying that forever. A ship adrift, a know nowt owner and a know even less general manager, the blind leading the blind. If i were Hughton I would think twice before accepting the poison chalice on offer. Face it ,the club has become a joke, chaos reigns, with most self respecting managers giving us a wide berth. Fraid there will be more of the same until the club changes hands. Not that I am in any way advocating a takeover by Moat, no more than another Freddy in my opinion. Our only hope is a takeover by big money and for a second tier team in the middle of the worst financial climate since the great depression, that seems unlikely. Were Ashley to spend some money to ensure promotion, it would certainly be in his interest, selling a PL team is easier and would bring a better price than one bogged down in the fizzy. I cant believe that option has escaped him. Guess we will have to hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

Everyone agrees Ashley is a disaster. Everyone agrees where he will take us (1991 again). We need to shout long and loud. He hates it, when we demonsttated against Hull last season he threw he towel and put the club up for sale. When he took the club off the market he appointed Shearer to divert the fans attention (that was his motive I assure you). He's now sneaked in the back door thinking we all content being top of the league (or second as it is now). He was on the ropes and we must put him back. We must turn the heat up so this man walks (not hope for the best prepare for the worst). This club means the world to me and has since the early 1970's. Starting with Docaster on Saturday we should shout this man out of town. We can do it. Public pressure is all we have left.

just when you think its getting better two draws and two defeats. against teams that would have never seen the likes of newcastle since the sixtys. cant get my head round the fact our so beloved ownwer seems to be doing this to get to the fans. how can a man having made billions be so oblivious to the fact he only needs to spend a little to get us out this mickey mouse league.

It's a crying shame and something that's been in the works since Freddy Shepherd left. He has demoralised a very special club, and it's great fans.
