Surely there must be some way these overpayed players can be punished for such a dreadful season? I reckon they should be training with the marines during the summer break? or perhaps made to do a fashion show, oh wait i think its already been done.......

Yeah I think he's done well. I think the only mistakes he's made are getting rid of Allardyce at the time he did and getting in Keegan (if Rednapp had took the job it would have been a good move). He made a mistake in not getting a big name forward this summer but I think they are getting in players who want to play for Newcastle and do well so they are being careful. Staying away from the likes of Duff, Owen and Martins who were high wage players with no passion.
Overall I think the club are moving forward. I actually get pleasure from watching them play again. And I for one am going to congratulate Ashley on this and hope he can keep Newcastle moving forward.

this result at blackburn goes to show that the strikers we have are sh** anyway owen is a joke and has no passion for this club whatsoever. allardyce was not given enough time and got alot out of a bunch of sh*% players and a shambles of a club. its an embarrassment.
keegan won't do anything to change it. just spend big money on show boating money grabbers. which may work short term but if newcastle are to be a top 4-6 club long term they need structure and a team built over years. blackburn (man u and arsenal too of course), for example, have built up a team over a number of years without spending big money. they have a team of players proud to play for their club.
allardyce, given time could have done this. he did it with bolton despite what jabberwocky says.
anyway not to dwell on allardyce.....who would you have as manger if keegan was to leave in the summer, which is what i think will happen

i just mean with the money he spent they were good signings. beye and faye were the main ones like. whats your thoughts on rozenhahl? the nzogbia at right back thing seemed to work better under him but he looks really out of place now. i don't like smith but i'm gonna go out there and say barton was a good signing. he just needs time, confidence and the right players to give him a bit of freedom. he's not a defensive midfielder. i even think geremi was an excellent free transfer!
the janaury window was a big chance but the board had other ideas. i think more big players would rather come to a club where allardyce was in charge.
am i the only one that thinks he was the most positive change to nufc since bobby robson?

i must admit i was excited when hearing the news keegan was back but the reality is sam allardyce was a great oppurtunity to get the club moving forward. personally i think he spent the money well and got rid of the right players. he made alot of positive changes and i'd rather be middle of the table getting draws than spending the rest of the season worrying about relegation and being humiliated at the hands of arsenal, aston villa and man u and soon to be wigan (lets face it sam's tactics against these teams were superior to keegan's).
the board are to blame of course, they have just done what the fans wanted to get ticket sales up. the players are to blame for having no passion or confidence (don't mean to dwell on allardyce thing too much but he also had some kind of confidence therapist in, i think if i saw keegan and mcdermot aka the chuckle brothers giving a "we need to score more goals than them" speech it wouldn't fill me with confidence). keegan is to blame for coming back after not watching a game for 3 years. seems to me he's came back for money. i'm a geordie but i think the fans are as much to blame as anyone else with this situation too- i know we are good supporters and understandably impatient
the only way this will work is if the board give keegan alot of money but i can't see many players, wanting success, coming to this club as we are a complete joke (only money grabbing players will come). i think keegan will leave at the end of the season anyway. hopefully get in someone who knows the game today. martin jol would be a good realistic chioce? its going to take a long time to turn the club around and this appointment in my eyes has been a backwards step.
also i think gazza should be given a role alongside the current coaching staff when he gets over this hotel room incident? i think the team needs a character at the club like that and i think the club should give a boyhood fan who is clearly lost without football a relaxed chance at the club.
i also think a good underestimated striker would be good for the club. a kenwyn jones type?

Really bored by the anti PAul Parker comments. If you don't like his articles don't read them. Simply. So sick of people commenting on his articles. Soemtimes I don't even think people have read the article
