Its not about the size of the club that dictates how well we play, look at Portsmouth, you need a manager with alot of experience to pull this club around. I'm sorry but Big Sam doesn't have what it takes to do that. Alan Shearer would be the worst move ever, it would cripple his chances later on aswell. Let him learn somewhere else the stakes are too high. Hughes isn't top standard, Jol is worse, There are a handful of managers who could help but they aren't English. Keegan hasn't got it anymore, Wake up Newcastle you're an amazing club, Start being Geordies again and not Southerners. Stop the superficial stuff, you want to be the best, stop thinking you're the best.
