AlanPardew36One of the most difficult questions asked in any footballing board room – “When’s the best time to sack the manager?”.

I would suggest the Reading board are asking the question as we speak but unfortunately the Newcastle board aren’t.

How long do we leave it until the situation is beyond repair, is there any point in waiting until after the January window because that denies the new manager the ability to make his own moves during the transfer window, in an effort to save us from relegation a second time in four years.

I’m looking at Saturday being completely pivotal, if we don’t get all three points then in my opinion we should make the change because the next three games after that are very difficult indeed and the new manager can approach them in such a way any kind of result is a bonus.

The new manager then has the opportunity to tinker with the squad and make the changes he believes will guide us to safety during January and we move on from there.

I’m getting a bit sick of the manager suggesting we’re losing well, good performances are no good unless they bring points to the table. We went down playing rubbish three years ago and going down having played well this year will be no consolation whatsoever, believe me.

Timing is of the essence here, if we win on Saturday we have to give Pardew the opportunity to turn things round, if we don’t win on Saturday I’m all for the kneejerk reaction to kick Pardew into touch.

What do you think?

Three FA Cup wins?  I'm shocked.  No idea it was that low :(

Bolackburn sounds like a very painful injury

i personally aint got a problem the FA putting an award out for recognising wins against superior opposition as it could quite as well have been colchester v leeds etc. i think they maybe wanted to reflect that the FA cup is for all teams whoihc is just about is (i.e anyone who finishes in the top 10 of the EBAC northern league Div 2 can enter). I can see part of where you are coming from but again they just happen to pick Ronnies as an iconic personality due to the magnificent goal, however, the FA should be criticised for its uncaring response to 2 letters i have sent them about NUFC policy of actively not wanting to progress. This is so disrepsectful to everyone involved in the best competition in world football. Yet the FA do NOTHING. Pure scumbags

Even though it was 43 years ago and against Newcastle it was a cracking goal

In a way its an honour for Newcastle .... as we were considered the biggest Scalp that it has ever happened to...  in the history of the game....  The FA call it 'the Giant Killer Award'.....


....so there is the retort to all of those who say United aren't a big club!
