Do some fans still think that Mike Ashley wants the best for Newcastle United? Do some fans think Alan Pardew is a competent manager? Do some fans still think Kinnear tried his best and is a right fit as a Director of Football? Think again folks.
Not only was it embarrassing enough to see our beloved club made a fool of tonight in their “heroic” 3-2 defeat away to Everton at Goodison, but it would appear that one of our senior officials wants to rub salt in the wound by showing his disdain for Newcastle United and their supporters.
Joe Kinnear was subject to a lot of criticism, in the media, around the pubs, and most recently, on the terraces during last night’s game. What was Kinnear’s response? Two fat fingers right back at the fans. There you have it folks, undeniable proof that we have a 60 something year old child in charge of our transfer dealings (and we wonder why we signed no one on a permanent deal?)
Of course, Newcastle United fans are going to be livid about this result. They may even be livid about Kinnear flipping them off in such an obvious way, but when the dust settles, what will they do? Nothing. I’ve already read quotes from fans who are calling on others to stop being negative and back the players and manager, and this was a matter of minutes following the disgusting display that we’ve seen last night.
Newcastle United fans, as much as I love and associate myself with them, are as gullible and easily appeased as any fan base in the country. Give them one decent performance, heck, give them half and hour of decent football, and they will forgive a month of tripe, condescension and misery. Nothing will change within Newcastle United unless the fans themselves do, and unfortunately, it doesn’t look forthcoming.
What do you think? Are you a sheep, blindly following the club that is pretending to be Newcastle United? Or are you willing to take a stand? I’d love to hear your views.
