Newcastle United : The great underachievers

 

What is wrong with Newcastle?

In terms of infrastructure you couldn’t ask for more.

They boast the second highest attendance in the premier league for  matches at home.

The fans are amongst the most passionate, if not the most!

This has been a case of mismanagement (literary).

Well, you can’t blame it on money.

Newcastle has splashed around their fare share of money in the transfer market.

Furthermore, the few players that are actually good that they have signed, they tend to sell them instead of hang on to them.

Surely a club like Newcastle deserves better than this.

When Ashley turned up you couldn’t help but feel optimistic.

However just like Shepherd he continued the same cycle of hiring washed up British managers.

Don’t these guys get it!

If a manager has failed to win or achieve anything significant at all his previous clubs, he is most likely to do the same at Newcastle.

All of this criticism excludes Sir Bobby Robson off course.

Here’s a hint Newcastle.

You think you are a big club, so start thinking big.

Stop signing average international players, and make the main focus to sign an internationally proven world class manager.

Not a British one.

All the good British managers have a job right now.
