    Graeme Souness...

    Greame Souness has never been a good manager.He removed the players that had pace and skillful .On the other hand he brought in hard players which made Newcastle a boring team.With the EPL is on is new decade of fast football ,Newcastle need players like Bellamy in the squad.First mistake they should not have bought a high profiled player like Kluivert when Shearer and Bellamy is in the squad.Since Kluivert was in ,Bellamy should not have been played out of position as he was the one scoring most of the goals and setting them up for Newcastle.

    • Im sorry but I have to agree. Graeme has never been a good manager. His biggest problem is that he is not a terribly good tactician. He demands discipline from his players which he will struggle to get unless he has a team of Stevie G's or John Terrys or... Alan Shearer. But not all players like that. Bellamy for one. Also, its true about playing Bellamy out of position. He is obviously a striker, not a winger. Why would you put him on the wing when we have so many good options like Solano, Dyer and Milner.

      As a manager, you have to work with what you have got. A good manager can do wonders even with his reserves. Roeder didnt have a full squad towards the end of last season either but he did exceedingly well with what he did have. I think we need to back him 100%.
