Geordies Aal Ower The World Map

Geordies Here, Geordies There….

Today we feature the tale of Newcastle fan Colin Powell bumping into the legend that is Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page. The setting was an Irish bar in Thailand and despite Page’s Arsenal credentials, Colin had him cheering on the black & whites as Ben Arfa scored that cracker at Goodison Park last season.

Alright, in that case, if this is from the heart- HE IS A POOR DEFENDER and AN AWFUL CAPTAIN.


Nothing more, nothing less.

Sorry but this just proves what the owner and directors of NUFC think of the supporters. Look at all the home games this season, the number in attendance and the results. You will find that supporters have turned up to support the team, but unfortunately the team have not played their part. We had earlier this week reports that the players were telling family and friends to stay away, something that under this regime has been used on numerous occasions. Coloccini never gives post match interviews, and as others have said never opens his mouth on the pitch, how he has continued as captain amazes me. We get no response from the club until it gets desperate then it is beg for the fans to turn up, lf we say sorry the sheep will fogive us then it will be more of the same next season. It's funny how it suddenly becomes 'your club', however we don't care what you think and will continue to run the club like a tat shop. I have been amazed at how many people are still taken in by this rubbish as can be seen by looking at the bloggs and also sky sports. It will be the supporters fault if relegation happens, however it will be how well the club is run if the club stay up, it won't be the wonderful support. Look out for more stories on bids being made for players and then wait for their clubs and agents telling us that they know nothing about it.

I don't believe in trying to tell others what to do as it has to be your own decision, but please just take a step back, think of what is said and why it is said and also what has gone on year on year and not let your heart rule your head.

@Wallsendstu Colo's apology might have seemed more genuine had it come from a source other than NUFC, whose outpourings have less credence than those of the old Iraqi propaganda ministry.

As it is, I've no doubt this is part of an official push to dampen down the protests.

It won't stop the fans getting the blame, though, if, as I expect, Newcastle are relegated.

As the saying goes "actions speak louder than words" and Colo has shown none of this passion on the pitch. And as captain, I would expect more from him.

Worst 'Captain' ever. A pantomime horse would have done better. Both on and off the pitch.

If anyone believes, for one minute, that Colo wrote that dross, you are deluded.
It was written by the NUFC publicity department, trying to cover their arses from the consequences of relegation, caused solely by their failures to strengthen the squad over the last 3 years.
Ashley is now trying to transfer his profiteering, failure to invest in the squad, onto the shoulders of the fans. A wholey cynical attempt to remove the burden of guilt from himself and place it on anyone who happens to be handy!!

The man is as much a fraud as the "Letter" above. A complete and utter fabrication of the reality he has created. Mr Ashley, please sell up and take your wealth elsewhere - you are not welcome in Newcastle.

Would it not have been better for the club captain to give an interview to the media so that we can hear the words coming out of his mouth rather than he hide behind and give his name to a letter very obviously written by the Ashley minions in the pr dept?

We may never know if Colo did this of his own accord, or if Wendy and her ilk put him up to it (or even penned it for him).

Cynicism is the easy option, so I understand why most of the comments here are that way inclined. I may be naïve, but do take the view that this is Colo trying to have his say and do what a captain should do in situations like this. Hopefully, he'll back his words with actions by giving a captain's performance on Saturday.

Totally perplexed as to why Ashley would risk the Sky money..... maybe he isn't a genius?

He's a gambler.

I stood behind him in a casino once.

@LeazesEnder 

Not so much a genius, more a chancer. He likes a wager, and right now he is gambling that somehow, somewhere, we'll find three points (which, rightly or wrongly, conventional wisdom suggests is all we will need to stay up).

He's gambled with our souls for years now; this is merely one more spin of the roulette wheel for him.

I don't doubt that he's a nice bloke, I don't even doubt that he has some love for Newcastle, and I could also believe that he has some passion for the club. What I know though is that he is an awful captain and hasn't played well for months, I know he tried to bail out, and I firmly believe that he did not author this letter without it being suggested, and the content being assisted. It's PR, plain and simple, and badly done at that.

At the end of the day he is the leader and motivator on the pitch. You never see him shouting at players or waving to them to do this do that. He has been a decent player but now just going through the motions. If we do stay up I don't want to see him with the armband next season. Other than Krul there's no once else in the squad I would want as captain but he will probably bail out in the summer. We need a team of fighters and even cloggers to get us back up the table and in a position where the team is appreciated by the supporters but unless  mishmashley sells up not a lot will change

I'm with you on this one, Rex.

By writing the letter, Colo is trying to show initiative and act like a captain. If it manages to galvanise the fans on Saturday, hats off to him; and if it doesn't, well he gave it a good shot.

We may think we deserve to go down, and many of us may see it as the way it has to be in order to get rid of Ashley. But even if relegation did mean the end of Ashley, I hope folk can see that we won't repeat what we did in 2009-10 - this team is nowhere near good enough to come straight back up, nor will we ever be able to recruit the talent to do so, and I fear we'll be out of the Premier League for many years to come.

I understand that colo referred to the remaining games as 3 " cup finals", I can only presume that the fat one hasn't seen this......he would be fecking livid if he thought we had won any cup games and got through to a final
