His form for the last 10 games was 2 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses. So fairly poor after a solid start. 7 games in he had won 5, draw 1 and lost 1.

I'm sure they will be better next season under him.

Aren’t they sack-happy in China? A run like that might see him get a golden handshake...

You'd think it would be expensive even by their standards to finish him as they've recruited 30 odd spanish youth coaches and scouts to develop their infrastructure.

If he goes, then you'd imagine they all would too.

:lol: @ people saying he went there just for the money. Clearly at the centre of a massive project there.

Saw something saying his buyout clause is £20m.

I miss having total trust in the guy in the dugout.

Can't think of many I'd rather have running my football club.

Still gutted he left and even more gutted that they saw fit to appoint Steve Bruce.

That everyone just accepts it and reports on 'Steve's' team as though it's entirely normal/appropriate/accepted breaks my brain.

"When I realised that Newcastle were not investing to progress."

When will the fans realise this, and more importantly, act on it?

I don’t think many people believe we’re trying to progress, it’s just easier to go to the match than to stop. For me it’s easier to stop caring than really protest, so I’m just as guilty.

Too many don't give a s***. They've become used to and fully accept a mediocre Newcastle United that doesn't try.
