“What is a club anyway?” Bobby Robson wasn’t the first to ask, but he was the most Newcastle-centric and terrible prosecution of modern football.
“It’s not a building or a director, the people paid to represent it. It’s not a television contract, departure clause, marketing department, or executive box. It’s noise, passion, sense of belonging, pride in your city. ”
To get rid of those elements – passion, pride, fame
Sports Direct Arena St. James’ Park – Explaining how we got to today’s place. It alleviates the reason why the fan base has fallen into moral conflict and is cautiously hoping for a new dawn, but unable to properly celebrate Mike Ashley’s departure and the end of the era-defined by demotion. A spectacle of a player using Willy Bin as ice, and a bath at the training ground.
With some twisted Stockholm Syndrome, some have given up fighting Ashley, a millionaire who has made one of Britain’s most enthusiastic football cities almost indifferent. Steve Bruce somehow became a villain in the theater he arrived in 2019 and established himself as a “local hero” yelling at Tannoy.
Born in Corbridge, just 16 miles away, he undoubtedly burned those bridges when he took up the Thunderland post more than a decade ago, long before he set foot on his dream job.
In addition, the accusation against Bruce had nothing to do with his Jordy qualifications. Fans were desperately left behind due to his lack of solidarity, his seemingly willing acceptance of the agenda set by Ashley. The Newcastle coach was always weak during his miserable tenure, but at least Rafael Benitez sympathized, counterattacked and eventually left when he realized he was defeated.
Somewhere in all this was football. Newcastle is in 19th place and has not won the match. Their defensive record is very poor, comparable only to Norwich City, and there are still Tottenham, Arsenal, Leicester, Liverpool and Manchester City to play in the next 11 games.
During a 2-2 draw with Southampton, when a fan said, “I want to get Blue Sea,” he replied: As everyone thinks, I think the whole thing is very, very disappointing. ”
Last season, the 12th place finish looked fine on paper, but was 14 points away from the top half. Only Sheffield United, West Brom, Crystal Palace and Southampton have admitted more goals.
Unlike the end of the stint at Aston Villa, Bruce hasn’t yet faced the stigma of being thrown cabbage on his way out, but with the bookmaker, he actually does when the ink dries on the takeover. You’re more likely to leave Rating him as odds-I like to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post.
Candidates to replace him are:
Howe left Bournemouth after being demoted from the Premier League in 2020 and lined up to get a job at Celtic. Hoop believed he was on the verge of signing the deal, but he refused because the club said it was “out of control of both him and us.”
That means he’s still available, but he’s not necessarily the one who sorts out Newcastle’s defensive pain – Bournemouth acknowledged an average of 66 goals per season through their five campaigns on Top Flight. ..
A big coup. Conte met with Tottenham in the summer, but reportedly gnawed at Daniel Levy’s hesitant transfer plan. Italians who won the league in the last three clubs of Inter Milan, Chelsea and Juventus are inevitably given a much higher budget in Newcastle, and the wealth of new owners is less than the wealth of Shakeman Sur in Manchester City. Become.
Wilder admitted that he had basically worked with a championship-level team at Sheffield United and received a controversial dismissal towards the end of the second campaign after the impressive first season. rice field.
Jones is now Bruce’s assistant and Gareth Southgate has called on him to work with England on Euro 2020. Even if his current boss isn’t expected to stay, the initial changes aren’t expected to be widespread enough to leave Jones. He remains a valuable asset in the dressing room.
It will be a heroic return for a man who often talks about “love” to and from his fans. “This is a huge club,” Benitez said while in the championship, and he envisioned them “staying in the Premier League for a long time and winning trophies.”
Of course, the problem is that he was only appointed manager of Everton in June and Toffee sits co-third at the Premier League table.
