Dalglish was given money to spend and sacked after TWO games, drawing one with Charlton and losing narrowly to Chelsea away. That was madness. Gullit had to go, but I find it unbelievable he repeated the process with Robson. Intelligent people learn from their mistakes. What does the fact that Shepherd doesn't tell you about him?

100313[/snapback]

 

that he doesn't know anything about football, one of the prerequisites - you'd think - for running a football club.

100317[/snapback]

 

And you think all those clubs chairman you didn't include earlier.....all know football ?????????????

100320[/snapback]

 

maybe maybe not but you have to wonder if they are quite as clueless as wor fred.

 

i don't recall too many other premiership chairmen sacking their manager a handful of game s into a new season after letting him cain your money (not the smartest move in anybody's book) ...then doing the same thing a few years later...!

 

face it leazes....the man is a laughing stock. and he's the main reason why we can't attract a top quality manager. the best coaches should be queueing up for the newcastle job. look at everything we've got: money, support, facilities etc.

 

but they're not.....i wonder why that could be.

100325[/snapback]

 

I'm not sure about that mind, I'm still hoping we will get O'Neill and whatever you think of him he is a massive name. SJP is full of posh cars as I write btw.

 

For me, Shepherd's reputation is really on the line now. Earn your money you slug!

So 4 league titles and 3 FA Cups is not a top manager ?

 

A manager of world wide repute, honours and an Ex England WC semi final isn't a top manager ?

 

A manager who won the FA Cup and left a team for the next guy who carried on winning more isn't a top manager?

 

As only Hitzfeld of the current people can currently match or beat the first one above. And some of the current managers being mentioned, and given approval, can't match the top 2, what exactly is a "top manager" ?

 

It's just hype mate, people are making things up which don't fit facts and believing them because they want to. What I state above is plain, unarguable facts.

Amazing how Shepherd can do the EXACT OPPOSITE of what Leazes would have advised with Souness, and yet he reserves all of his venom and pisstaking for posters on a message board, whilst the bloke actually oversaw and sanctioned ALL of the mistakes he CONSTANTLY witters on about is absolved of any blame.  Teflon Fred.

100312[/snapback]

 

As I said, I called Souness correctly, and told Fred to get rid of him, not keep him.

 

Thats not a u-turn, its seeing a mistake.

 

But as he continues to push the club aiming for top spots, hires top managers and backs them with cash, he's doing his job as well as anyone else who isn't an Abramovic.

100324[/snapback]

 

Would you concede though that instead of wittering on about people on a message board that said to give Souness more time, you'd be better served berating the man who actually gave him it. Shepherd is the only ""give him time" Souness man" that mattered, you know?

likewise for souness. anyone who knows anything about football knew shepherd had hired the wrong man from day one .

 

I'm glad you said that, not me. That is about 90% of this board you are referring to.... :D because they said Fred ought to "back him", rather than "sack him", as myself, Renton, HTL and one or two others did, then when he backed him, they criticised Fred ! Amazing.

100302[/snapback]

 

That's absolute bollocks Leazes - you tell me one person who thought Souness was the right man when he was appointed!

yep, I knew that, so why did you defend him and believe all that crap he started spinning about bad eggs, and "backing him"

 

For me, his demise started when he started the bad eggs shite, and any "time" I gave him [more out of hope than judgement though], finished at that point. Why didn't you all do the same ?

While I was there, I found a thread showing the official betting odds only 3 days before it became clear it was gonna be Souness....

 

In hindsight I wish I'd stuck a 'score' on it now...

One of my criteria would be that the manager would be very satisfied with the squad as it is because i don't think we can afford wholesale changes. It happens too often at NUFC, new manager, new first 11. We need someone who can bring the potential out of the squad while strengthening on the cheap.

 

I guess the criteria people look for is track record, status, etc. I can see that, but my above point is essential imo. Souness clearly didn't like the squad which i think causes a lot of problems. Players get a new boss and the first thing he does is try to replace him, that would make me moody tbh.

I think you'll find that Dalglish was 2nd choice, after Robson, then a few years later Robson was first choice again.

 

We aren't manu or Real Madrid, managers aren't going to give up top jobs they already have to come here, but its a top job and they all know it, most others wouldn't turn it down.

 

I don't know why you expect a Fred to have a football knowledge of an expert BTW, very few do, they appoint managers for that. Very few chairman are better than Fred, because they are all basically the same, a lot of supporters have more football knowledge and understanding than chairman.

i don't expect him to be a football expert. i do however expect him to have some common sense, learn from his mistakes and stop making the club a laughing stock. going on the past two seasons he doesn't look like doing any of the above in the near future.

I'd actually weigh up the best of the available managers plus any managers currently at clubs who we could realistically attract rather than place set criteria. You can answer my question if you like Leazes.

To get back on topic, it looks like Luque has been left out of the Spain squad for the friendlies next week. I can't find an official list, but the BBC are reporting Fabregas got in as well as the four main Spainish lads from Liverpool. No mention of the Baggage from Barcelona.
