Newcastle fans are planning a walkout during Saturday's game against Cardiff in protest over the club's management. "It's the lack of ambition that has driven fans to think there must be some symbolic way to protest," said fans group spokesman Mark Jensen. "It's a club that's falling apart." According to the statement issued by protest organisers Newcastle United Supporters Trust, the 69th minute has been chosen as a reminder of the last time the Magpies won a major trophy - the 1969 Fairs Cup, now better known as the Europa League. NUST board member Jensen said owner Mike Ashley was only interested in the club as a business. "He had no previous attachment to Newcastle," said Jensen. "Any money he put in has been as an investment that he hopes to get much more out of at the end. If Newcastle were run with ambition, then we can all be winners - Ashley and the fans." It is set to take place in the 69th minute and comes after the worst losing run since 1986-87 that has seen them slip from European contention to a possible finish outside the top 10.
For part of my forum I'm working on a massive project to help away fans. I'm compiling a directory of as many clubs as I can, which will give details for fans visiting the grounds where their teams are playing. I can do the basic stuff for United, but I don't know the "safe" places where away fans can get a pre-match pint, where to eat or where to stay. If any of you can help out on this, please PM me the info, or answer in this thread. I'd also appreciate the same sort of info about other grounds if you are a traveling away fan. TIA SEPP
Juventus's Paul Pogba has accused former club Manchester United of "disrespect", claiming he was made to train alone during the contract dispute that preceded his move to Turin. The 21-year-old French midfielder left United in July 2012 after failing to agree a contract extension. "They left me out because they said I wanted to leave. That is disrespect," Pogba told BBC World Football Focus. "Maybe they didn't think if they were making a mistake." Pogba himself was accused of a lack of respect when he left United, with then-manager Sir Alex Ferguson telling MUTV he was "quite happy" to see the player leave. Thanks for the memories Pogba may not have made many first-team appearances at Manchester United, but he did pick up some silverware. He, along with Adnan Januzaj, was part of the United reserve team that beat their Manchester City counterparts 2-0 in the Manchester Senior Cup final in May 2012. "I don't think he showed us any respect at all," Ferguson added. Pogba made just seven substitute appearances for United and insists his move was motivated by a desire for more playing time rather than money. "Manchester United is a big club but you have to think about yourself," Pogba added. "You have to play. The coach told me there would be space to play, but I wasn't playing. "I was training alone for one week. They told me to go in the gym. I said 'I am not an athlete, I am a footballer.'" Juventus won Serie A in Pogba's first season with the club and are on the brink of successfully defending the title. Pogba has been a key part of their success, scoring 12 goals in 60 league appearances. His good form has prompted talk of a move back to Manchester, withboth United and...
Very good appoitment for them, not sure it would be Frank best club but its his choice knowing how Levy sacks managers. As it seems Spurs are looking to bring any top manager old or young, just to shine.
