Newcastle needs change

Why Bobby Robson didn’t sort this out earlier makes me wonder, because the same players at Newcastle United are the problem and they were there when he was boss.

Newcastle has had one bad April. Being totally outplayed against Sporting Lisbon left them empty handed in the UEFA Cup, a loss to Manchester United has a swift exit from the English FA Cup and in one week the season ended.

On top of that, two of their players get into a fight with each other: um, during a game. Has anyone ever seen that before? I haven’t, not in any sport for that matter.

In addition to all of this, adversity has done a lot of damage to the quality of the teams play.

So why now, all of this?

I think it’s because of Graeme Souness. Not in a bad way though, but more in the sense that he is a contrast in styles with Bobby Robson. Former coach Robson dealt with the players differently, what we are seeing is a result of that difference.

The former player Craig Bellamy affair during the transfer window was my eye opener. Add to that Lauren Robert, Lee Boyer, and Kieron Dyer and you have 4 starting players regularly creating problems. Robson handled the problems differently, and while I shun the ‘disciplinarian’ coach, I think Robson set too loose a tone in the camp.

Clashes of styles, attitudes and entitlement mean that its time this group get separated so that haplessness doesn’t take hold at Newcastle.

Newcastle are a farce. The FA Cup semifinal match on Sunday was an absolute disgrace; the players (Robert, in particular) hardly fought. At no point in the match did I think they could challenge. Boumsong, God bless him, did what he could, but the match was over before it began.
