Said it the other day. If he had any ambition he would throw 10 million at Jose until the summer.

That's the only card left that Ashley can play and he can offer any amount he wants.

No decent manager will come because Ashley has Chumpley and Carr pulling the strings with him having final say.

Even that statement the players were supposed to have released backing McClaren is being reported as crap noo. May as well do away with the managers job as it's only role here is to deflect the shite.

Looking likely that he's gone now. Aside from Beardsley, the papers have it between Moyes and Pearson.

So will Charnley and Carr be accountable should the inevitable happen? You would think so but they will meekly accept whatever Ashley says. You have the right to challenge. Dozens of jobs are at stake and I don't include players. Grow a pair ffs.

Wey Moyes is favourite with the bookies now as Pearson odds go out. The club's favourite, Beardsley, is not even in the odds.

I'm not sure Ashley will sack him unless relegation is confirmed. You look at past history, Kinnear went cos of his dodgy ticker and Shearer came in with 8 games left when the damage had already been done. Pardew only went when Palace came in after breaking many unwanted records after some horrific run of results. That he WOULD'VE been sacked for at any other club in the country.

I don't know what Ashley thinks half the time, surely this is the end of the road for him now.

Ashley will be ringing around Kinnear's mates today, so expect someone like Hoddle to be dusted off.

And the players are having a 2 day break so that's 3 days off in a row if you include saturday which we all should.
They should of been made to train extra and not be allowed time off the lazy useless fuckers.

A. Wall of silence suggests no action. Can you believe Charnley had no plan to replace McClaren, just shows they are quite happy to jog along in the bottom three and hope to escape at the last minute, just like last year. Bunch of amateurs and I hope they pay the price with relegation

John Hall says.

"I've been looking at the list of managers who are available and they haven't impressed me. They have to find someone exciting to motivate the players and the fans and there's only one man.

Newcastle United is a big club and it needs to think big. At times like this we have to be bold, it's a gamble either way, so let's gamble with the best.

Jose Mourinho would give the club a lift, like Keegan did in my day. They need to sell the club to him, to persuade him to come, even if it's just for 10 games this season."

Good to see John Hall's spent all the money he got from Mike Ashley on crack .

Craig Hope from The Mail Is claiming the board met in York (coincidentally McClaren's home town) without McClaren and that he WILL be sacked.

Isn't McClaren on the board?

Fuck me, this club is an absolute joke!

Aye, where is club mouthpiece Moncur in all of this? Seems to have been pretty quiet lately.

Charnley, Carr and Moncur know that sacking Mclaren is tantamount to handing their own resignations in. It's pretty much self preservation and not one of the board of directors will do what's good for Newcastle only what's good for themselves individually. Much like the p[layers this is the kind of attitude a Mike Ashley run business fosters.

I reckon this is endgame now because it's becoming farcical. The papers are starting to fill up with how the club is a glorified Shite Direct not to mention that major cracks are being talked about in the dressing room and that's before you add in the McClaren factor.

The way this has been handled just stinks of the club trying to paper over the cracks but finding out that no-one will come here under the self profiting model that exists and I wouldn't be surprised if one of the 'directors' jacks in soon. Probably Moncur.

Even this morning, the Twitterazzi reported that McClaren turned up for training before his car drove off amid speculation that he'd been given his p45 but it then turned out that McClaren was still there and taking training. More stories reckon that Ashley has terminated the hire agreement on it. Wouldn't surprise me.

In fact it wouldn't surprise me if McClaren was only there to wait for a lift after training but then again the club think they can continue without any communication whatsoever and are showing the true colours again of the rotten set up.

Berb once wrote on this forum that he wanted the club to be the rock on which Ashley's ship finally came to grief. With all the stuff in the papers about Shite Direct and its odious practices and the public humiliation of this once great club under his tenure, Berb may be about to get his wish granted. I truly hope so.

Anyway, so the indecisive management of the club finally get up the nerve to sack McClaren - What then? Do the other three resign because sacking him shows their incompetence in appointing him in the first place? Not to mention their clownlike acquisitions during transfer windows as Carr and Charnley are supposedly responsible for those matters.

Beyond that, any potential manager would have to look at the post very sceptically because they can't possibly be unaware of what has gone on at the club over the last 8 years. How desperate and stupid would anybody be to step in there? Benitez is too astute and Moyes will still be dealing with upper echelon incompetence from his time working for Woodward. Frankly, if the situation remains the same, only a fool would consider the post.

The more this goes on, the more I see something like McClaren moving aside and Beardsley being the one.

McClaren remaining in a versatile role linking the boardroom to the training pitch.

After being in the bottom few all season, there was no contingency for replacing McClaren. Although seeing who is running the show it's perfectly understandable. They are now fluffing around and pretending to seek out candidates, meanwhile we drift nearer the next defeat. Should have been done long ago.
Must be the worst bunch of individuals to have ever served as a Board

Absolute bunch of clowns Owl. The fact that Charmless is still in a job says everything you/we need to know about MA's aspirations for the club. The blame for our predicament lies squarely and firmly right at the door of one M Ashley. I'm hoping that every fecker they approach (if they do) bursts into laughter, says "you've got to be fecking joking" & slams the phone down.
Wonder what David O'Leary is doing?? Maybe he's desperate for a few quid, wouldn't surprise me.

I have had enough. Complete waste of time waiting for these clowns who have dragged Mrecastle to new depths, to make a decision. Will not bother following this any further. I have become completely disillusioned with football and more so with Newcastle.
Seeing the club being run by a Harry Hill lookalike Charnley who knows 5/8ths of f all about football is the last straw. No more for me.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Deidre O'Bleary came in. Mentioned it before - he was on SKY one window talking to that Jim Shite and it was all "Mike this" and "Mike that". All very chummy.

'Benitez tops Newcastle's list to replace McClaren' I read in this morning's newspaper.
In other news, a Rolls Royce tops my list of preferred cars to replace my ageing motor but the nearest I'll get to one is with my nose pressed against the showroom window and I will most likely end up with something similar to what I have if indeed I replace it.
After the club's pathetic collective attempts in the transfer market, I have no doubt something similar to my attempts will follow.

Well summed up as ever, Monday should have seen somebody else in charge, the fact its Wednesday and nobody fancies it shows how toxic the situation is, and all the funnier, sleepwalking to relegation......

There's supposed to be a meeting between McClaren and Charnley this afternoon. Probably fishing for ideas in how they can fix this.
