We're in the same boat as you john.

Far from a sinking ship, only 6 games gone.

I don't think it will be to long till we are both in calmer waters.

Both be safe come may.

Newcastle's biggest mistake will be not getting shot of Cisse and getting in Austin. I think Mitrovic will come good for you, but temperament wise he's going to cause more issues. You need someone solid who knows where the goal is.

40+ crosses into the box yesterday, 4 (?) hit a man? That's awful.

Well I was at the game on Saturday and was gutted to come away with just one point.

Huge improvement all round (although how Obertan is a prem player I have no idea)

Can they continue against Citeh?

Also one last rant...why in the last couple of mins when we had a corner did Obertan insist on holding it in the corner...settling for a draw?

Winjaldum looked very good. Perez showed why hes WAY better than Cisse, Mbabu the young left back had pedro in his pocket the whole game and Mitrovic was class. He caused their defenders all sorts of problems. At one stage they were putting 3 players on to him....

Agree, some big positives to take forward, especially with Mitrovic. Why on earth Perez was benched for the first four of five games is beyond me too. The fixture list has been awful & with the focal point of the attack being suspended for three games, we were always going to struggle linking the midfield to attack & scoring goals. We should push on now & I'd expect a good performance against Norwich at home, although I doubt we will get anything at City. Good to see Janmaat picking his form up, been class since he got sent off vs Swansea. Mbabu looks a dead cert to replace the woeful Haidara on a permanent basis.

I can see why Obertan did that, I think we were in such a mess losing the two goal lead & all the momentum was with Chelsea at that point. I think the whole team's confidence could of been shot if we'd lost 2-3, so just seeing it out & gaining a point seemed like a good idea for morale going forward, seeing as the squad's state does appear quite fragile, given the club's start.

Agree with all that ...including the corner bit to be fair.

I hope we can continue this on now and it wasn't just a one off. Yes Man City might be a bit too much, but I would really hope we can get something out of Norwich.

With Mitrovic and Perez working so well in their first game together that looks a dream partnership.

I just wish we had a back up for Mitrovic though, otherwise he's going to be used a hell of a lot. Be better if we had someone of a similar ilk who can come on and give him a breather at times. A young Andy Carrol Wink

Disappointing, seeing as the first half performance was really encouraging. Not sure what was said at half time, but that was pathetic & embarrassing.

All I can say is, McClaren needs to say to these players that the season starts from here. The fixtures are easing now & with Norwich, Sunderland, Bournemouth, Stoke, Leicester & Crystal Palace in the next six, we need to start to pick up points.

Terrible day & another humiliation at the Etihad, like last season.

I was hoping for a terrible 1-0 win, I wasn't expecting a 6-2! 

I'm not going to get carried away, but this can hopefully be the foundation now to start our season. We've said all along, our players attributes, especially Wijnaldum & Sissoko, are suited to counter attacking football. Norwich played into our hands really, but it just goes to show, if we take the lead in games, then we can really be an offensive threat on the break. I know Gigi will get the praise, but I thought Perez was brilliant, this lad could be something special & already the link up play with Mitrovic looks fantastic. As for Moussa, that's the type of performance we expect week in, week out. He really was unplayable & his three assists were great, seeing as usually he keeps his head down, instead of looking for the final ball.

Still think we've got major defensive issues, but hopefully the confidence is back now & McClaren can keep this momentum up for Sunderland next weekend.

Yeah I saw that mate. I do rate him very highly...however Im not daft I know its only league 1 so we have to be careful about making him the next shearer (or Michael Owen) etc.

I would give him the full season with Coventry. Don't rush him back. Let him get loads of games and goals and some experience. Then after that either bring him back or give him a season with a championship side.

With Mitrovic or Perez (De Jong etc at a push) we are fine this season.

Ive heard a few fans calling Armstrong the new Chopra. I hope he's not.

great result, love the moussa to wijnaldum combination, really enjoy watching them on a counter. still thought we looked terrible first half & were let off, in the fact that Liverpool had four key players missing. de jong did not work for me, perez's movement changed the game i thought. still not convinced about our central midfield, there's just no creativity & needs to be addressed in the window. can't see us beating spurs, given their resurgence & I would imagine dembele & alli will ruin anita & colback. winning our next home game vs aston villa is AN ABSOLUTE MUST though.

Great win yesterday, geordiefalcon. Shelvey has been a revelation, basically created the last three goals at St. James' & Townsend was very, very good yesterday, should of scored when he hit the post & his crossing was very dangerous. Happy for Mitro, he's missed absolute sitters for us & I've slated him, but hoping with Doumbia at the club, it will raise his game now. Good to see Steven Taylor back too, just feel for comfortable with him playing with Colo.

Still going to be a long slog to survival. We got Chelsea (a), Stoke (a) & Leicester (a) coming up. Our fixtures don't ease really until March/April.

I thought he would be a hit for you. Saw him vs WHU/WBA & he was the difference maker. £12m was an absolute steal & I see research by CIES Football Observatory, has also placed him in at No.1 of best value January transfers.

Well I think we are going down after that result.

Maclaren is as clueless as the players are pathetic!

The only consequence I will enjoy is to watch Ashley cry as he loses the supposedly crazy tv deal money in the summer.

And if people say he will destroy the club....well he's already done that. Id rather be in division 2 with passionate British players and a positive chairman than in this current situation.

Well whats your thoughts on the circus that is Newcastle United John.

Now being linked with Benitez?

The whole club is rotten.

Just discussing with some of my work colleagues. My biggest gripe for years has been the local scouting. I just don't believe that we don't have talent in this whole area.
I don't believe that you cant have a look in some of the hundreds of Sunday league teams or Saturday teams in Byker, Blyth, Percy main, West End etc and not find someone who can put the ball in the net, or a rock solid centre back etc capable of playing at this level.

They don't have to be kids. Some are late developers. Don't forget Duncan Ferguson was rejected by the Rangers academy because he was too small.

I've been shocked at the lethargic performances - you beat my Albion side, but have looked like a shadow of the team we all expect to face. Where is the passion? Where is the attacking flair? Where is the slightly-kamikaze, yet-actually-secretly-good defence?

I may be an Albion fan, but to me, Newcastle is the one club outside the top 4 that has the potential to break in to that club. A superb stadium, the best and most committed fans in the country, fantastic pedigree, wonderful history...it really has the lot, apart from a rich owner committed to improving the club.

Forget Everton, Villa, West Ham - Newcastle should be the next team to be taken over and rise up the table. If I had the money, I'd buy them before my own club.

It's a mess, from top to bottom. Ashley thought throwing money at this would solve everything & appease the fans. It hasn't. Lee Charnley is an incompetent managing director, out of his depth & who seems to be backing McClaren. Steve McClaren is a clueless idiot, who is embarrassingly trying to attempt to manage this football club & failing miserably. Should of gone at Christmas, yet has continued & has a win % of about 20% or less. Shocking. Graham Carr has shown he's now incapable of doing his job, time & time again he's failed to deliver in these windows, he's still living off the capture of Yohan Cabaye. The players heads have gone, not surprising, given who's barking the orders at them. Moussa Sissoko has been a disgrace & is one of the worst culprits. All in all, it's a dire mess.

As for Benitez, heard he's interested in taking over now & wants a massive bonus for survival, but if we go down, he's off. Well that's fantastic commitment to our cause & a great long term plan, isn't it?

I'd personally get Pearson, he's not a big name & can rattle some cages in the dressing room. He'd view the job as a massive step up in his career & would be committed to doing the job & staying in the job, even if we go down, unlike Benitez.

The biggest question, of course, is whoever comes in, will they be able to squeeze another 14 points out of the squad to retain the club's PL status?

Or will it be Championship football next season?

Looking at your remaining fixtures, I have to say I'd be very nervous if I were a Toon fan. Even allowing for the "new manager effect" I'm guessing they'll pan out something like this:


Leicester (A) - L
Sunderland (H) - W
Norwich (A) - W
Southampton (A) - L
Swansea (H) - D
Liverpool (A) - L
C. Palace (H) - D
A. Villa (A) - W
Spurs (H) - L

Which makes 3 wins, 2 draws and 4 defeats (11 points), which would only take you to 35.   Erm

@dyrewolfe, you can look at Sunderland & Norwich's fixtures & tell me where more than 11 points are coming from? The sides down here are playing so badly, it might take a considerably less haul of points, to guarantee survival.

It's now official. Benitez, 55, has signed a three-year contract and brought in coaches Fabio Pecchia, Francisco de Miguel Moreno and Antonio Gomez Perez.

"I have the pleasure to confirm I have committed to a legendary English club, with the massive challenge of remaining part of the Premier League," he said.

"It will be a challenge not just for me and my staff but for the players, the club and the fans.

"All of us must push together in the same direction and with the same target in mind. This is the reason why I'm going to ask for your total support to successfully complete this task.

"Personally, it means my return to the Premier League, closer to my home and my family. I can't be happier."

Could be long term fantastic. The short term matters so much in that though.

And how he gets on with Ashley.

Okay, so I have:

Sunderland
Everton (H) - W
Newcastle (A) - W/D/L?
West Brom (H) - W
Leicester (H) - L
Norwich (A) - W
Arsenal (H) - L
Stoke (A) - L
Chelsea (H) - L
Watford (A) - L

3 wins, 6 defeats would give them 34 points for the season, meaning the Toon would survive by the skin of their teeth.

Thats not taking into account the Tyne - Wear derby really could go either way. I think that will be the match that defines both clubs' seasons - whoever wins stays up. Still Newcastle will have the new manager advantage.

Think Rafa is a good appointment (at least far better than your last few). He is one of those that can give players an immediate lift, so I think that will save you.



Also pretty close for Norwich:

Man City (H) - L
W. Brom (A) - D
Newcastle (H) - W/D/L?
C. Palace (A) - D
Sunderland (H) - W/D/L?
Watford (H) - D
Arsenal (A) - L
Man Utd (H) - L
Everton (A) - L

At least 3 draws and 4 defeats. Really can't decide with the Newcastle and Sunderland games. If they can win those that will put them on 34 points. Its gonna be close but 35 points might be enough in the end...

So apparently West Brom are dropping three points away at Sunderland, and two at home to Norwich? Have you seen the way we're playing at the moment?

Plummeting into the championship.

Mr Ashley has to do the decent thing now and F*"K Off!!!! And take Mr Carr, Mr Charnley etc etc etc with him.

Then Mr Sissoko, Mr Cisse, and the other shower of sh1t can follow.

Realistically out this summer - Sissoko, Wijnaldum, Janmaat, Tiote, Anita, Marveaux, Gouffran, Riviere, Obertan, Cisse & possibly Steven Taylor

Already looking to see who the core will be in the championship really. Nobody will touch Krul given his recent injury or the new recruits, like Townsend or Shelvey, who will be on lucrative, long-term contracts. Nobody will touch Mbemba, who has struggled to adapt & Mitrovic has been generally pretty poor, so doubtful to have many clubs willing to take him on, with Ashley demanding near £14m, most likely. De Jong has a five year deal & is injury prone, so likely to be staying. Colback will stay, along with Darlow, Lascelles, Dummett & hopefully Aarons can sign a new deal, with the guarantee of more game time. Ayoze is an interesting one, was heavily linked to Spurs, but has had a poor season. Think a year in the championship would do wonders for the lads development & still very young. Recall Adam Armstrong too from Coventry.

Darlow/Eliott/Krul

Dummett/Mbemba//Haidara/Lascelles/Steven Taylor/Mbabu/Good/Sterry

Colback/Townsend/Shelvey/De Jong/Saivet/Aarons

Mitrovic/Perez/Armstrong


We would then need a championship experienced manager to recruit & beef up the squad with young, quality signings, who may of excelled in this league.

I could genuinely see people in for Krul, Perez, Mitrovic and Aarons. Wonder whether Townsend or Shelvey had anything to do with relegation clauses in their contracts. If anyone offers what you paid I'm sure it'd be considered.

Are Rivière, Taylor and Obertan still under contract next year? Those are three players who will be short of suitors.
