Newcastle United: end of season report card

Recommended Posts

On-pitch moment of the season

 

The 4-1 win at Tottenham on March 30; the day Michael Owen's reinvention in an 'in the hole' role started to look a tactical masterstroke by Kevin Keegan

 

Off-pitch moment of the season

 

Keegan's appearance in the directors' box at the FA Cup replay win against Stoke in January, three hours after his return as manager was announced

 

Player who must not be sold

 

Steven Taylor

 

Greatest goal

 

Charles N'Zogbia, in the 2-2 draw at Middlesbrough on August 26. A curler into the top corner with his supposedly weaker right foot

 

Most embarrassing moment

 

The 6-0 defeat at Old Trafford on January 12 just after Sam Allardyce's sacking

 

Effect of manager's shopping

 

Patchy: Keegan bought no one in January so all the purchases were made by Allardyce last summer

 

The season in five words

 

Depressing, baffling, bizarre, soapy, improving

 

Five-point action plan for the summer

 

Strike a lasting peace deal between Keegan and Dennis Wise; Persuade Mike Ashley to start talking, and listening, to Keegan; recruit a top midfield playmaker; Contract extensions for Owen, Taylor and Steve Harper; Prioritise trying to win a cup

Could have said a lot worse tbf. The taylor comment is a bit odd and I usually back him.

I think I agree with it all tbh, not a bad report considering... the Taylor comment is odd though.

Was a six nil trouncing off man U more embarrassing than a one nil off Derby?

Getting murdered off them at SJP was worse too imo.

Tottenham 4-1

 

Off-pitch moment of the season

 

Keegan returning

 

Player who must not be sold

 

Michael Owen

 

Greatest goal

 

Charles N'Zogbia(Boro)

Owen(Spurs)

 

Most embarrassing moment

 

Conceding 6 2nd half goals at OT, losing to Derby, the way we lined up under Allardyce against poor teams

 

Player of the Season

 

Beye, Owen, Faye, Butt

 

Worst Player

Smith. After a scoring debut in a friendly, he's been utter shit.

Has Louise Taylor written this shit?

 

Her being related to that buffoon who wears our no.27 is the only reason I can think of for the comment made about him...

If he's related to her he wants a fucking good kicking for not punting her in the clunge months ago.

I don't know if she is... I'm merely trying to find reason as to why he's the one player we should not sell.

 

That, without doubt is Michael Owen IMO - proved his doubters totally wrong and given a new lease of life alongside the captaincy...
