The press for starters don't seem to help, When Newcastle are going well, they try their very best to shoot us down, why?
Perfect example. We go on a 12 match unbeaten run under Roeder, get into Europe, the press straight away, Oh well, Roeder does well but how long will he be at the club? Seriously fuck off. Maybe thats the reason for failure?
Then we've had Chairmans, Owners who quite frankly couldn't give a shite. Although I've became more fond of Mr Shepard recently, Ashley sitting with the fans, with his toon shirt on necking 'non-alcoholic' drinks, conning us to think he's the man, we're going places, only to stab us and King Kev in the back. Shepard to slag off the woman of the city, idiot.
Overpriced players who just haven't peformed for Newcastle. You've got your Luque's, Boumsong's and Viana's thats just three!
Is it us? Are we to blame? Yes we put pressure on the board to pick the right man, but why shouldnt we! We fill St James Park week in, week out. Get behind the team when they're showing the passion we show, if they aren't trying we get behind their back, thats the way it should be right? So, Simple answer to that. NO.
The Southern press and other fans love to see Newcastle United fail. Simply because, we're the best supported club in England and have the potential to be one great, great football club, greater than what it already is :D
Now for Ashley to leave and Keegan to come back, Watch this football club move forward!
England took the lead with a Teddy Sheringham goal, assisted by who else, Alan Shearer.
Then the Rest of the world equalised with a goal from former West 'am hero, Paulo Di Canio. They then took the lead through French actor Marini.
Just before half time Alan Shearer was tripped inside the area by Jaap Staam, the big man then did what he does best by sliding it past the goal keeper. 2-2.
After the break Di Canio eased his way through the defence then slotted the ball home to make it 3-2 to the foriegners.
Alan Shearer then hammered home a good cross in vintage style towering above Stam and levelling up for England. Typical Shearer.
Then a free kick in the last 10 minutes whipped in by Robbie Willams best friend, Johnathan Wilkes, Shearer broke free from his marker to get the slightest of touched, so he claimed anyways!
Rest of the world 3
The 6th richest man in the world, worth around £23.7 Billion, was reportedly interested in Newcastle United Football Club earlier this year but the stumbling block was Mike Ashley's £400 Million asking price at the time Ashley was believed to be enjoying his time at Newcastle United. .
"Ambani, whose personal fortune is estimated at 20 billion pound sterling, is anxious to join the growing band of foreign owners who seemingly have mountains of money to throw at the Premier League," the report said.
"Newcastle is his first choice - and negotiations have been going on behind the scenes at the club Ashley bought in July 2007 for 130 million pound sterling.
"But Ambani won't wait for an answer from Ashley forever. He is determined to own a Premier League club as soon as possible and splash more transfer cash than Ashley," it added.
However now with almost every Newcastle fan calling for his head, he isn't welcome at this football club and he could now sell the club for a cut price, still making a profit.
Newcastle fans have personally been sending emails to Mr Ambani pleading for him to save this club, some even going as far as translating it in Indian!
The word is that Anil would reappoint Keegan, and give him full control of bringing who and who he does not want. With a transfer budget of 100 million plus in January.
"If Ambani can close the 300 million pound sterling deal, then don’t rule out a sensational move to reinstate Keegan. Ambani knows that restoring Keegan to the job would placate a Toon army in revolt," a 'Sunday Express' report said referring to the Newcastle fans who were pouring vitriol over on Ashley over the departure of the "messiah of Tyneside".
This is music to the ears to all Newcastle fans as it's something that is really needed to get our great football club back on track.
If I was a betting man, I'd say Ashley's time is over, he knows it, the media knows it and the fans certianly know it.
Welcome to Tyneside Mr Ambani :)
Here's the statement made by the club, complete joke:
NUFC wished, at all times, to keep any dispute that it had with Kevin Keegan private.It is therefore disappointing that information has reached the media through unnamed sources and a briefing has been given by the League Managers Association that could give rise to a misleading impression amongst the Club’s fans.
Newcastle United have no desire to engage in a war of words but inaccurate reporting of factual matters and inaccurate allegations have to be corrected.
It is a fact that Kevin Keegan, on appointment on 16th January 2008, agreed to report to a Director of Football and to the Board.
It is a fact that Kevin Keegan worked within that structure from 16th January 2008 until his resignation.
It is a fact that Kevin Keegan, as manager, had specific duties in that he was responsible for the training, coaching, selection and motivation of the Team.
It is a fact that Kevin Keegan was allowed to manage his specific duties without any interference from any Board member.
It is a fact that Kevin Keegan agreed only to deal with the media in relation to Club matters relating to the Team and not to communicate with the media in relation to the acquisition or disposal of players.
It is a fact that NUFC is a business and operates, like all businesses, with financial constraints.
It is a fact that NUFC’s financial constraints inform its transfer dealings.
The Board of NUFC have responsibility to ensure that the club is able to meet its commitments which include the wages and the transfer fees for players.
The structure at NUFC is clear, and has been clear from 16th January 2008.
Now Keegan and the board are in a war of words in the media and the fans, as always stick by what they think is right and are standing by Keegan. Fans have been sending emails to sports direct, and to the club it self.
There's even articles saying such things as 'Keegan got told Newcastle are signing Xisco and Gonzalez, Keegan asked who they are and that he had never heard of them, he was told to look them up on youtube' Even Keegan couldn't find much!
IMO, Ashley WILL sell up now, it will not be fun for him anymore and he'll lose more money being in charge of the club. He'll make more money selling up, to Anil Ambani, He'll be gone and fingers crossed we'll have Keegan back. The bookmakers also think this could happen.
