Sat 5th Mar - Newcastle 1 Bournemouth 3
« on: March 05, 2016, 11:38:36 am »
The pressure is beginning to crank up on McClaren now.

A fight with a journalist in the press conference, press stories that the senior players don't know why he is still in a job and now Manuel Pelligrini being touted as our manager for next season.

Along with Aston Villa, Newcastle deserve to go down for the gross mismanagement that has occurred at the club over the last two seasons. With 82 million spent on players this year it might just be enough to stagger over the line.

But surely the Leicester model proves it's far cheaper to employ a good manager than it is to employ an idiot to run the team then spend millions on players to compensate for that fact.

Anyway, the players should be good enough to beat Bournemouth today despite the manager. But frankly it just seems to be delaying the inevitable unless we actually bite the bullet and get rid of McClaren, but that's not looking likely.

Bizarre team selection defines what will no doubt be McClaren's last match in charge of a football team for quite some time.

Leading out against Bournemouth with Riviere as your only striker is pretty suicidal given the guy has proven time after time that he can't even kick the ball in the Premier League never mind lead an attack.

Congratulations to Bournemouth, a well managed club with a talented young manager, they thoroughly deserved this win and thoroughly deserve their likely second season in the Premier League.

What now for Newcastle. A panic move for Moyes, Pearson or Redknapp ? There is no one in the backroom team you could put in charge, they are all muppets. Ha ha, maybe John Carver might help out.

Everyone to do with the management of Newcastle United should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves. 82 million spent and relegation an almost certainty.       

Newcastle United (4-2-3-1): Rob Elliot; Daryl Janmaat, Steven Taylor, Jamaal Lascelles, Paul Dummett; Jonjo Shelvey (c), Jack Colback; Moussa Sissoko, Georginio Wijnaldum, Ayoze Perez; Emmanuel Riviere
Substitutes: Karl Darlow, Vurnon Anita, Henri Saivet, Yoan Gouffran, Rolando Aarons, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Seydou Doumbia
