And this time by an ordinary Championship outfit. WTF???? If the Mackems and Derby were not so rubbish, you'd be hearing The Blaydon Races at QPR next season. Sorry Sam, pack your togs and go.

absolutely agree with "magpie2k". These negative fools of toon fans must stop calling for Sam's head and give the man and the team some time to turn things around. Continuous sacking after sacking of every single manager will do the club no good. Start taking some responsibility as Newcastle United fans to show some maturity and get behind your club.

Premiership sides think they have a god given right to beat lower league clubs, and if they dont they put the blame on everyone but themselves. To be honest i think think that you have so many over-rated players in your squad: Nicky Butt-has been, Owen-gets himself covered in abit of mud and classes that as hard work but he was smuthered to death tonight, and Smith-if he did as much football as he did screwing his ugly face up then he would be amazing. I do agree though, that castle should be doing alot better, but dont take a thing away from stoke tonight as the crowd were immense (considering the amount their) and the side took it to you. like it or not you did well not to get beaten, that is a fact. And the virgin media match report is a pile of toss, made it sound like we held on and newcastle had a bad day. But everyone hates stoke anyway, so stop moaning, were all classed as violent scum in a derelict area so really having abit of grief with your manager isnt too bad. Anyway, i just hope the replay is fruitful, should be lively.

This is getting boring.

all you so called 'fans' are ruining our club. i can't say i'm a fan of direct long ball football and i think that big sam loves him self a tiny bit too much BUT against stoke it wasn't ALL long ball, we got it down sometimes, looks like the guy is trying to accomodate the so called fans.
i think he made a mistake in singing Smith because in all seriousness what is his usage? but he's been here 6 months for crying out loud.
we need a creative player in the middle Arshavin for example. but for gods sake if you want newcastle to have any success back him, let him manage and stop being so reactionary otherwise we'll never get a manager who will do the job.

Newcastle United have had far too many managers since Kevin Keegan left, however I agree with the sackings of the managers during this period (Ruud Gullit resigned and was not sacked). The problem has been the managers which Newcastle hired.

People say that Newcastle are too quick to sack underperforming managers, but this is not generally true: clubs don't want to sack managers who are on long term contracts, remember, Graeme Souness is still being paid by the club.

Prior to being sacked by Newcastle, Graeme Souness made media statements like 'I'm no quitter' this was code to the chairman that he would have to sack him and pay the remainder of his contract. We are hearing similar statements from Allardyce now.

I think Newcastle should bite the bullet and sack Allardyce (or make him Director of Football, at least he'll have to do some work), he's trying to achieve a style of football that Newcastle fans don't want, but Newcastle must take more care when they hire the next manager and not just select someone from the usual suspects.

It wasnt a vintage Newcastle display, just as Liverpools draw was a struggle BUT they are still in the draw, and after recent goings on I think Sam will not be too disheartened. The conditions were awful and there is no doubt that Stoke were up for it.

Can someone tell me why Newcastle supporters take their tops off in freezing conditions?????????

I do agree that Newcastle were useless as always. That's what we get for having a mackem as a manager. But seriously do you really think Stoke are going to get promoted? Not a cat in hells chance.

It wasnt the best performance ive ever seen but at the end of the day it wasnt awful! I think Newcastle have come through a very hard away tie here and i have no fear of being turned over by Stoke City at home. What pleased me most about this game was seeing Kazenga Lua Lua get a runout, i saw this lad play in the reserve cup against Alnwick Town and he was fantastic!!
