We played better in the second half.
Guthrie is back soon.
Beye is back soon.
Gutierrez is back soon.
We have a proper manager.
Duff is looking awesome.
Don't lose heart, don't bash the lads, and don't bully Kinnear out. K?

Newcastle what a disgraceful and foolish set of fans!!!!

.........................

I think passionate would sum it up really. I mean you dont see any west ham fans protesting against the board when curblishly left?

"As for the fans turning on Ashley what a disgrace. KK should have got written not verbal confirmation as to what his role was at the club."


Yes, he should of. But he didnt. He came under false pretences. Thats why the fans turned on Ashley. Whos fault is that??

"Certainly on this form, Newcastle - who are now on their longest losing run in the Premier League and have just four points from five league games - are heading for relegation."

(From a Man Utd fan)... Who writes this tosh? The Beeb need people that actually have rational thought! Newcastle are NOT going to get relegated! I bet this fool's next guess is Tottenham are going to be in a scrap n all!

Its not as bad as people make out. 1 win for newcastle and they can move up to 14th or so. Yes were in horrible form and all over the place but lets support the boys and Joe.
One point from todays match was there had their deputy keeper in nets James Brown and his kicking looked awful and to start with we should have pounded him with shots but did we no. I can't even remember a shot in the first half sadly

I think that Ashley is entitled to make a profit, but not by selling off our best players.

I have to say I am enjoying watching Newcastle blunder from a frying pan to a fire and then into a furnace and finally throwing themselves into the sun! Where is the thought process behind any of the club decisions it should be evident in the clubs history that They always make the same decisions which leads to the same mistakes and no trophies and we are all aware of there " amazing support " Surely its more deluded than amazing nothing will show the board that they can't go on like this than people losing interest in Newcastle, rather than following a poorly run machine that has as much chance of a trophy in the next 50 years as gordon brown does in the next election.

"If I was to define a big club, i would stop any random people in the street and ask them to name 10 football teams in england, see what the answers are. Then you would get your 'big teams' "
________

No you wouldn't, you'd get the 'big 4', plus the 6 teams that are covered by the media the most.

The BBC seem to think the whole world is interested in every minor thing that happens at St Jim's park. Personally, Newcastle mean as much to me as any other random 'no hope' club. I'd put them alongside the Wigans and Fulhams of this world - they'll always be in or around the top flight, but they'll never actually threaten anything. With all die respect to Wigan and Fulham, of course.

But when did Newcastle last actually threaten to achieve anything? And by that, I don't mean 'get all over excited by the appointment of a new high profile manager'. Sure, every now and then the 'hype-factory' descends on St Jim's Park, and a new false dawn is celebrated.

But what have Newcastle actually ever achieved in the last god knows how many years? Compared to 'poor to average' Blackburn, who, in the last 14 years, have won the Premier League, finished runners up to Man Utd and 4th, 6th, etc., enjoyed Champions League and UEFA cup campaigns, won the League Cup, regularly either qualified for Europe or narrowly missed out, etc. etc.

cont...

So if that recent track record makes Blackburn a 'poor to average club', how would you define Newcastle?

P.S. 'die respect' in my last post should have read 'due respect', of course

Duff was awesome?? Were you at the same game as me. He is the best player in the premier league at looking like he is having a 'busy' game but in actual fact is totally ineffectual. He can't pass, cant run , cant beat anyone and his crosses are desparate. He shouldn't be anywhere near our team!! Along with Geremi, Ameobi, Cisko and Cacapa.
