I have found another hypocrite type of journalist in today's SkySports news. That man, Paul Hayward reckons there is a “terminal rift” at Newcastle, which will see Sam Allardyce shown the door in the next few weeks.
Daily Mail's Hayward feels Allardyce has now lost the trust of his players – and that is one of the biggest problems for the former Bolton boss. For the God's sake, how in this earth he will know that such thing?
More of his so ‘wise and known the football stuff' comments about Sam Allardyce, quoted from the Sunday Supplement:
“It wouldn't normally be the solution to sack a manager in January, but I think there are a number of problems at Newcastle that suggest Sam Allardyce's time is coming to an end.”
“One is the breakdown of trust between the players and the manager. Some of the things Allardyce said after the Wigan game suggested there is a terminal rift there.”
“He was saying he didn't want his future in the hands of these players and that sort of thing. He was almost disassociating himself from his own team.”
I really don't get why the ‘Outsiders' like Hayward and many others are often make false judgements. And if Big Sam is really being sacked on January, it was not because of the players and the Toon Army. It was the bloody press who build false public opinions about what happen inside Newcastle United.
I suggest leave us alone, and give time and peace for Sam Allardyce and his players to work things out.
“But on the other hand, once they got back to 1-1 they sat right back in their own half and invited Chelsea onto them for the last 20 minutes. In a way that was an accident waiting to happen.” Football Expert Hayward continues his Toon analyze, as quoted from SkySports,
“I noticed the tactics were using. In the first half they were just pumping balls up to Obafemi Martins, who was playing up front on his own. It was a very sterile style of play and I think that is the root of the problem.”
If you know the football thing very well, why don't you just apply any managerial job? I know the free journalism stuff and the freedom of speech, but what if that ‘pumping balls' and ‘sat right back style' wins it for Newcastle yesterday, what are you saying my dear Hayward.
My point is we didn't know and will never know as an outsiders what is the best for the team in particular situation, and what's in the players mind.
We are not the manager of team and know little about football, we only can see what's going on the field.
“Another criteria on which managers are judged is the players they bring in,” Hayward added. “And signing Joey Barton was clearly a pretty catastrophic misjudgement. Also the two midfield players – Alan Smith and Geremi – are not sufficiently creative for the Newcastle pallet.”
“So his purchases so far have not worked out and he needs them to start performing or else he will be in big trouble within the next couple of games.”
Howay man! What else can you do when you have a very limited budget to buy new players and do you think that with our current “rank” Big Sam will be able to buy any ‘world class' player? Sam Allardyce will buy any available world most talented players if he has £50 millions and he does manage a team like Manchester United for example.
I'm sick of all this media article, Newcastle United is looking terrible by their negative reports. We are in the transition period which is no one can do any better with, not even Jose Mourinho.
