    Most of us could see this coming...the numpties stupid Bruce v Rafa last season argument is soon to be destroyed too...we had 3 less points last season but were about to go on a brilliant run, winning games and playing attractive football...

    There is 38 games in a season.

    A bunch of fluke wins don't make a manager good. You hear from time to time 'I'd rather be a lucky manager than a good manager.' Well old 'Bruceless' is all out of bonuses.

    This season has been completely miserable. Under Pardew even Steven Clown I think I never turn a match off. This season I have watched maybe 3 matches in full. Not bothering with 1/2 and turning the rest of the off even if we were ahead, drawing or losing. Zero interested in the poor quality of football and zero interest in the style.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SliVMQ11Kk - Prefer to watch this Sunday league channel on Youtube - crap, the know it and it's humorous. I recon this lot would defo give Bruceless's Newcastle team a proper game.

    Contrast that with last 2 seasons

    Under Rafa I was fascinated by how he would set the team up tactically to stop the opposition playing and then slowly tweak the tactics over 90 mins to add more and more pressure, looking for a way to win in the closing 15 mins.

    Rafa is a master tactician and is was a joy to watch. His entire ethos from the super levels of fitness allowed the players to work to their potential through out each 90 mins, building from a slow start to the season to full power with 1/3 of the season to canter to the finish.

    Anyone who disregards Rafa in any way knows zero about football and their opinion is irrelevant. The fact his team had minimal injuries and finished the season with stats which, had he been given the players he wanted would have seen us back in Europe.

    The current manager is the antithesis of this Philosophy.

    What really sealed my respect for Rafa was when UEFA held an 'Elite managers meeting' - All the usual names were there; Rafa included.

    Given the right tools and financial backing Mr Benitez will win the CL and more league titles again in his career.

    How many times has our current manage been invited to clean Pep's, Jose's, Jurgan's boots let alone discuss the elite standards and practices of the game??

    It's self-evident - anyone who says different has a through for of Ashley dick and should fu(k right off with their clueless opinions.

    No one here or in any sphere of above pond-life intelligence needs nor wants it.

    Great post.

    Sadly true and very depressing.

    Yes - a very good post. Cant disagree with any of it.
    Our club is in a coma and not worth bothering with til it wakes up. Its come to the point where its impossible not to be annoyed with those that continue to go to St James. Sure people saying that each supporter can do as he/she pleases are trying to keep the peace but its getting harder and harder to understand people who continue to support the way the clubs being run by going to the matches.

    Club is dead and the 52000 are helping put the final nails in the clubs coffin. I am finished with it now until he is gone. The excuse attendees give of "a boycott wont work " is a feeble one. It will work, he wouldn't of tried to lick their arses by giving them 10000 freebies for friends,family or even enemies with the shte they watch if he wasnt worried they might join those already staying away.
    His advertising tat against a backdrop of empty seats will put his company in the sht light it deserves to be in.

    Whatever division we end up in next season you will see a big drop in attendances. He might have to give 20k tickets away to fill the ground

    How many of the 10k free ticket holders are going to buy a season ticket after watching that shyte

    I would say NONE

    And how many who've paid full price for years are going to finally say enough is enough now that he has totally devalued their commitment.

    A couple of lads I know, who I have argued with for years over Ashley have decided to cancel. I am talking lads with massive amounts of loyalty points and many years of support as well.
    Sad to see but must be done. They are still going on the drink on matchdays though.

    Come on Brucey, show us all what you are made of and notch up a third and fourth win before seasons end, that with a couple or three draws might keep just us up and you'll still be a hero in stupid Ashley's eyes,
