No room for 'yesterday's men' at Newcastle United

No room for 'yesterday's men' at Newcastle United

Former owner of the Toon, Sir John Hall has slammed the entire Newcastle United side as being 'useless'. Hall also labelled the players as 'rubbish' who did not even put up a fight on Sunday when relegation could have been staved off by a single goal.

'The table doesn't lie,' he told The Sun.

'It's been desperately poor all season and the worst thing is they didn't even appear to try on Sunday.

'I'm not going to pull any punches. This current side is rubbish. Useless.'

Hall, who sold his shares to current owner Mike Ashley in 2007 also spoke of the club's poor transfer dealings.

'I'm as baffled as anyone with the signings of players like Joey Barton - then again, former manager Sam Allardyce said he could put him right,' added the 76-year-old.

'As for Michael Owen, he's had too many injuries and he's never seemed to be on the ball.

'Now we are saddled with a huge wage bill. The lesson here is obvious: you can't take on yesterday's men and hope to survive. That's for a club with no ambition.'

Hall needs to look at his own part in all this *****. He's the bright spark that sold all his shares to Ashley without even meeting the bloke.

Cuts no mustard with me. The old ***** comes out with all these proclamations about Ashley and the club yet him and his brood bled us dry for years.
