We needed new signings in place for this run of three crucial/winnable matches against Norwich/Reading/Villa and so far we’ve only brought the Debuchy saga to an end while our top scorer has left. Newcastle United don’t have a transfer strategy, they make it up as they go along.
Newcastle United have many more problems than just who is manager but after seeing how fans around me reacted today, the question has to be asked – ‘Should Alan Pardew Remain As Newcastle United’s Manager’?
I think he has been an excellent player for us and the total absence of any stick at Norwich shows the fans are still right behind him, but any words to the other players must have a hollow ring with what is hanging over him
Newcastle were desperate for a centre-back anyway and with the Coloccini situation it could move to critical if our Argentinian captain feels he has no choice but to return home and deal with personal issues.
Top contracts to as many mercenaries as possible in a desperate short-term move to ‘compete’, before sadly for the fans going out of existence due to the financial burden of chasing the ‘dream’. Who was it that managed that Portsmouth again?
