I can’t think of one player who  didn’t give their all and from Tim Krul right through to Papiss Cisse they did us proud.

Resolute defending, competitive in midfield and not quite the rub of the green up front.

The only difference that stood between the two teams were the goals and some questionable refereeing decisions.

Against the likely title winners it was never going to be easy but I think everybody who watched the match will agree that Newcastle United could have done little more.

It is hard to take but at least it took a bit of magic from one of the visitors’ better players, who though shone brightest for Newcastle?

The choice is of course yours, get voting now for your top Newcastle player v Man City. There were eleven (plus subs) heroes on the pitch tonight but only one Man Of The Match.

Its every close season now under Fatty , rumors will abound , He's coming ,he's going etc. all the time the new season will get nearer and nothing Earth shaking happens , the natives will get restless , and inevitably we all end up disappointed because of Fatty and  his invisible "Line" that somehow we just can't  get over. The regime will just follow its usual smoke and mirrors act , they can't help themselves . I hope I'm wrong this summer .

And so it begins. For all you gullible knackers please make your season ticket cheques payable to FCB, c/o the Cayman Islands.  I thank you.

Football Controlling Board (FCB for short) "So, thanks for agreeing to sign for us".

Player, "Fine, no problem. By the way, who's my manager?"

FCB, "Could be John Carver".

Player, " John Who?"

FCB, " Or it might be Steve McLaren"

Player, "Can I speak again with my agent, please?"

FCB, "Or it might be Billy Smart"

Player, "Ah, now we're talking......where's that pen?"

Here we go-- another summer of bull...........a bit like that great sage Charver's ridiculous suggestion to his players,  hibernate for two months and watch cricket, golf or tennis!!!

What facts do we know?

1. There is no 'football board'. The BoD consists of Ashley, Charnley and a departing Irving

2. Therefore, Ashley must mean the football decision making people. They are Charnley, Carr & Carver if Ashley wishes us to believe he takes no part. The same people then who just about delivered relegation, no signings in January, loans and sales at that time and a team not worthy nor capable. 

3. Ashley publicly stated that these same people will continue to make the decisions.


Based on those facts - is anyone really going to believe change (or success) is coming?

Nobody should be renewing season tickets until a proper manager is appointed. If players come in before a manager we are getting lumped with charver. If the fat barra boy doesn't stick to his word we should buy tickets to the first home game, give him hell from the first whistle and walk out at half time.

Why are some fans STILL taken in by this garbage?

IF this is true, it does confirm one thing- we have a manger for next season and his name is Carver . .
