    Sam's gone!

    Unbelievable. What was the point in sacking him?? So we get another manager in, have lots of average performances, and sack him after six months, and so it goes on...we are never going to have any consistency at this rate. It's depressing.

    • Club owners and chairman today know nothing about football. Inconsistent reign's of managers = inconsistent results.

      Results haven't gone as hoped latley but it's not like we were going to get relagated.

      New owner, new chairman, nine new players in and 13 players out. Of course it's going to take time. How can a team gel with so much change?

      I just hope Ashley isn't another Fat Freddy.

      And I don't want Shearer as manager. He is a toon legend but not ready for such a HUGE job. We need someone with big club experience and trophy's in the cabinet and someone who doesn't care about ego's. A tactical, charismatic but at the same time, no nonsence coach.

      • The fact is he tried to run the club the same way he was running Bolton, but you have remember that newcastle's turnover is the 8th or 10th highest in the world ( because of their fanbase), and just like the managers before him, he couldnt put them at 8th in the premier league at the least. Also how can you forget how quick Kevin Keegan brought the team successive promotion from the 2nd division to within a couple of weeks of winning the league, How much time did he need back then??. In this game you have bring results 1st and entertainment 2nd., he didnt do neighter,and altough am not a geordie, I know the newcastle fans deserve better...

      • Sam was out of his depth at Newcastle, he thought he was a big manager and was found out.

      • well once again the so called Newcastle fan's get there way thats whats wrong with Newcastle they want success straight thats not what being loyal means you idiots for god sake give your managers a chance lets see what your legend Alan Shearer must get the managers the sack take the Job and I know he won't because he does not what to lose the fact he was a legend not anymore if he takes the job he doesn't matter who the manager his at Newcastle he won't last long with the idiots keep asking them to be sacked thats not loyalty thats suicide

      • I think that was the best way of sacking allrdyce,newcastle is a big club and it have a great fans!!in my opinion the next manager would be more useful tha sam

      • i agree great comment

      • mclaren for manager?he does have knowledge of the area.seriously who will want the job.they do not give managers a chance to get things moving

      • Newcastle and Managers being sacked. The club have no idea how to treat Managers and will therefore never achieve success until they change this attitude. Success does not happen overnight. This is one cliub the likes of Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal etc have no need to be concerned about.

      • The chairman has got it wrong this time, he should stay out of the crowd and concentrate on being a chairman, you can only blame "Big Sam" so much, its the ineptitude of the players we should be shouting about. The players are earning big money and not performing, why are they not leaving by mutual consent....
        Also "shearer" is not ready, please we need some consistency

      • I agree the bloke has not been given any real time to sort things out and it is a ridiculous decision.

        However his tactics have left a lot to be desired and most of his signings have been disappointing to say the least.

        As for Shearer. Why not give him a chance? He is as well if not better qualified than K. Keegan was when he took the job and let's face it the Keegan years were the most enjoyable by far in my lifetime as a fan.

    • Very good point indeed.

      I'm a Man U fan (season ticket holder for 20 years before you start thinking "glory hunter"), but my mate is a Geordie and he can't believe it to be honest.

      You've got absolutely no hope of achieving what you want, like silverware, unless you have some sort of stability. Is it something like 6 managers since Keegan left??? That's a joke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      The best thing you could do now is to get Shearer in, let him die on his #$%$, sack him like you've done with all the other "messiahs", then move on and get in somebody decent who has "top level managerial pedigree".

      Thank you

    • Nothing wrong with the managers that have been at newcastle. Should buy better quality players with some passion.

      • Maybe Newcastle should have sacked their physio instead! How can a team have so many injured players every season?

        Newcastle have also wasted large sums of money on unsuitable players: Luque, Viano, Bramble, that terrible French defender whose name eludes me, & definitely Owen, who is a money-grabber who gets injured so often that he makes Darren Anderton look like a picture of health!

        Houllier wouldn't be a bad choice as manager. I don't know why Newcastle fans want a Keegan-style manager. His cavalier approach cost Newcastle the league when they had a twelve-point lead over a Man United side whose entire team had cost less than the #15 million Keegan paid for Shearer....

      • I so agree with you. Newcastle management, who ever is in charge, seem to think that they can get results on the cheap. They get what they deserve. The fans deserve better.

      • A lot of #$%$ has been spoken on this thread but there can be NO ARGUMENT that Allerdyce's departure is good for Newcastle and for football in general. He is the biggest self promoter (and whinger) of all the managers in the Priemier league and as a result has become completely overrated by the media. Bottom line is he was given a more than sufficient amount of cash for players and half a season and he NEVER LOOKED CLOSE to turning things around at Toon. Hopefully his unconditional failure will spell the end of the boring tactics he brings to football. I am delighted that I can now return to support Newcastle as my 'second team'. Really hope the idiot board get the appointment correct this time. The long suffering and thoroughly decent folk of Newcastle fully deserve this.

      • Disgraceful. How are we going to find consistency if we don't keep a sodding manager!! If they go for Shearer then Ashley is a pillock. The guy has no experience, barely has the qualifications, big no no. Go for someone like Jol.

    • This club deserves all of the lack of success it has had in the past and will have in the future.

      Where can i get a bet on Alan Shearer to be sacked/leave before the end of next season.?

    • he should never have left bolton where he was a hero, now its bitten him in his bum, best of luck in the future sam , now go and sit at home and on saturdays watch the team you never should have left.

    • absolutely terrible descision, im a big newcastle fan living down in manchester, and am not happy one bit, how are newcastle suppost to win games and trophies when we cant keep faith in our managers over the years, chairman open your chequebook and buy superstars we deserve it as the fans, steven

      • Buy superstars? That is part of the problem - Newcastle bought Owen when Shearer retired because the fans were demanding a big name instead of doing what a club like Everton have done in terms of being realistic about their transfer targets and getting a decent team together. The only superstars a club like Newcastle will get are a bunch of money-grabbers like Owen who have been snubbed by Arsenal, Man United & Chelsea prior to getting their agent to talk to Newcastle. That is the reality of the situation. And it is best to remember that Keegan was very much a cheque book manager - his hissy departure from Man City proves that. And he scrapped Newcastle's youth team - what a prize #$%$!

    • Good, Fat Sm should never have left my beloved Bolton, The grass is not always greener on moving to a 'BIG' club, serves him right

    • Iam a Bolton Fan But Newcastle should have given big Sam more time to work his Magic

    • I am a WIGAN RUGBY fan but can see that the fans want instant success at newcastle which will never happen,how many very good managers are they going to sack before realising you need time to build a team just look at the managers they have had, this as happened at wigan

    • Ugly troll deserves it. Ugly football from an ugly troll. not what the Barcodes are about...

      • Yup, i agree, what an idiot that steve walker is, i think that most people with common sense are going to miss sam, and think that he should have been given more time. Instead you have some idiots expecting miracles over night, regardless of how well the players themselves are doing.

      • Stevewalkers comments of ugly troll are like those of silly child. GROW UP. Hes either a disgruntled Newcastle or Boltan fan. Either way Sam knew his stuff he proved that with Bolton

        Success doesnt come in an instant The only thing thats instant is coffe and most my mates have needed that after to stay awake after watching newcastles boring performances. Like past managers the fault isnt with Sam its the players as per normal. They should hang their heads in shame.

        And if Newcastle want success then built it like every other successfull team and be patient while it happens any Arsenal or Man U fan will tell you success is built.

      • Your obviously an IDIOT and don't know much about football to make the comments you have made about Sam. 'Get a life you #$%$'.
