These diabolical Newcastle United excuses already flowing

1 year ago

Well, Newcastle United are two games into the new season.

The excuses already starting to show themselves yet again.

Let me demonstrate with this growing list, though I’m guessing you will be able to add plenty of your own…

Rafa wanted salary increase after saving NUFC (Basically he was sacked) – excuse

Joelinton could not be signed as Rafa had final word on all signings – excuse

No agreement could be reached with Rafa (No real efforts made) – excuse

No preparations made for new manager because Rafa did not sign – excuse

Time lost as initial approaches to other managers all rejected  – excuse

Steve Bruce way down the wanted list and signed late, not NUFC fault – excuse

No time in close season for recruitment due to Rafa situation – excuse

Panic to buy players – not 1st or even 2nd choice targets, not NUFC fault – excuse

Steve Bruce – not enough time to sort out pre-season planning  – excuse

Players need time to adapt to new systems, learn new tactics  – excuse

Against Arsenal substitutes did not follow / understand changes  – excuse

Lascelles as captain went walkabout for Arsenal goal but not his fault  – excuse

Against Norwich team did not turn up – off day (After full week’s preparation) – excuse

Manager and coaches need more time (These are professionals?) – excuse

Substitutes and systems need more time to work into shape  – excuse

We have not ‘hit the ground running’ and players need more time  – excuse

Players are still getting to grips with changes (Professionals or what?) – excuse

Game stats do not reflect progress made (Are you kidding us, what progress???) – excuse

Manager and squad need more time, it is early days, we’re moving forward –excuse

Well it goes on and on.

The excuses are embarrassingly diabolical.

Trotting out the same pathetic football losers jargon, we will all turn up ready for the next game blah blah blah.

Let’s be honest, NUFC retaining their Premier League status? No chance.

We the supporters have more chance winning a soot juggling contest than this bunch have of making a fist of a football match.

Where do we go now?
