Wazup here? Do not get it seems like they wanna kill each other or sommin. I just hope we get outa this slump i am gettin very sad about these results, Where is that great newcastle of 95 huh? WHERE??????!!!!!!!!!!! We need more team spirit
I hope not Gullit has to know more about football than Alex Ferguson did when he took over look at what Alex has done over there now that they endured a couple trophy less years and now Alex is a demi god in ENgland, I think Gullit is the man.
It's true that Gullit knows a lot about football.He is one of the greatest players i have ever seen.
But being a great player doesn't always make you a great manager.
I think the trouble lies with the fact that he found the game so easy,and he expects his players to be able to do the same.Teaching players is an art in itself.
Most good managers at any level,create their team to play to their potential,by doing things that they are good at.
It would be no good for Wimbledon to try and play like man u and Arsenal,as they would lose the ball in dangerous areas.They play it long into channels and then press up tight on the opposition.That's what playing to your strength is all about.
Gullit expects great passing football,as it's the only way he knows,but the trouble is that most of his players,are not good enough to do it.
The best team at the moment, when we just select on the skills of the individual players, is Inter. Inter didn't play that well. And that's the result of a bad coach. Sure, Gullit had better players, but better players don't make a better team, the coach does. In the Dutch league we had a great example last season. Willem II had quality for being 5th or 6th. But because of a great coach, they became 2nd, and are playing Champions League this year.

Looks like he's on his way :D the man with experience
Reason why he got sacked at Southampton btw :howler:
first signing in 3 transfer windows believe it or not....know next to nothing about him other than that he has good potential (that we are likely to ruin!) and beat a host of clubs to his signature apparently.
Newcastle United have made their fourth signing of the January transfer window - France under-21 international Massadio Haïdara.
The 20-year-old left-back, who arrives from Ligue 1 club Nancy, has agreed a five-and-a-half year contract with the Magpies and will take the squad number 19.
