Newcastle fans must know that they have hit rock bottom when the likes of Michael Gray is having a laugh at their expense.

The former Sunderland ‘star’ must be feeling bold after Sunderland’s remarkable two game winning run.

Best remembered for missing the crucial penalty that lost the Premier League play-off final against Charlton in 1998, Michael Gray has used his Twitter account to poke fun at Newcastle’s situation.

Gray says about Newcastle ‘If it an’t broke don’t fix it’ and has tipped Steve McClaren for manager of the season.

I don’t know if we as Newcastle fans will have much, if anything, to laugh about this season but it would be very nice to revisit this if the Sam Allardyce ‘entertainment’ revolution crashes and burns on Wearside.

Michael Gray:

“What do you mean things can’t get any worse at Newcastle? If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. McLaren for manager of the season”

With two of the bottom four having already swiftly moved for new managers to try and escape relegation, we wait to see just what would be Mike Ashley’s tipping point with Steve McClaren…if indeed there is one based on results.
