The players have finally spoken. In the wake of minor gripe, there has patently been a mass agreement to give their collective two penneth worth on the club. Listing by player, they said:
'I think in this situation, a lot of players will want to leave - they cannot stay in this situation. I'm not the only one. It would be different if a manager was in charge particularly Alan Shearer, as he knows the club and the team.
It's a mess, Michael Owen has gone, Mark Viduka's contract is over. A lot of players are going and a lot of other players will leave the club.
I would like to play in the Premier League with Newcastle but that's not possible. I want to leave for my career.'
'I'd like nothing more than to stay and help the team get back to where it belongs but there is no chance of us being promoted the way things are going.
Training has been good and no one is slacking or taking it easy. But there is a sense that everything is just drifting. This cannot go on it really can't. I feel for the good of my career I have to get away because it is dragging me down.
I'm really upset by what has or rather has not been going on this summer. It was hard enough dealing with the disappointment of being relegated but things just seem to be going from bad to worse.
I've spoken to Alan Shearer and I know how much he wanted to get Newcastle back to the Premier League. He is a top man and someone the players believe in.
He had told us about what he expected when we returned to pre-season training and I left for my holiday fully expecting him to be in charge when I got back.
But it hasn't happened and he doesn't seem to know what's going on much more than anyone else.'
