Poor bloke. But as much as I sympathize, we surely can't afford to be charitable for another season of this...

I swear, much more of this and they're going to run into difficulties with season tickets for the first time in an Ice Age - and some of Roeder's excuses are starting to sound like Souness's in his final season.
This season has been so predictable: major injuries to critical players who recover just before the end of the season so England can wreck them ear Lord, check. The pattern is so ingrained even the die-hards are losing the will to live.
Originally posted by millermanYes, this happens every year: I don't think Michael Owen is at all integral to the future of the club (there are arguably two strikers there who are more prolific anyway), and given his injury record we should consider accepting an offer if Man U or Chelsea offer silly money.

And at the end of every season i chuckle and think "yep, what do i know about football" 😛
I've never figured out why Newcastle finish mid table some years, it's really quite baffling...
Good luck f ...[text shortened]... d for MO if he can show good fitness and stay imjury free until the end of the seasom 😕
Originally posted by AmauroteThat's generous. I'd ditch him. He's not cut out for management. You have a great stadium, resources and fans. Why do you put up with a Mickey Mouse manager and his pi55 poor results?

I think simply on the basis of long-term stability Roeder should get one final o be helping - shame, really, because he seemed like just the ticket when he was appointed.
Originally posted by ExpressiveOutburstNot really the place of a Liverpool fan too offer names into the ring for the new manager of the barcodes.
Who do you think should come in to replace him?

Sad to say, this looks like it - even with Ameobi and Owen out all season, the second half of the season has been awful, and their return hasn't exactly reinvigorated the side. Shame, I really wanted him to succeed - can't say Big Sam fills me with enthusiasm.[/b]
Originally posted by invigorateThere's no question that the failure is down to more than just one man and that Freddy Shepherd is partly to blame - it is noticeable that the fans were singing "Sack the board" yesterday, not "Goodbye Glenn Roeder" - but these managers have been backed financially and were high-profile enough to have done better. The old line about our expectations being too high is a joke, too - there isn't a fan on Tyneside who wouldn't cry with joy at the prospect of even the League Cup (although even we were too embarrassed to glory in the Inter-Twobob Cup...).
How many managers have the Toon had since KK?
If Freddie Shepherd wants Newcastle to succeed maybe he should look in the mirror and ask himself who is really responsible for the under achievement.

And he's resigned. I feel very sorry for the chap - his modest, professional style was very appealing, but we couldn't stumble on like this for much longer. I wish they could keep him in some kind of technical role, but if it is Sam Allardyce coming in there's no real chance of that.
