What is going on at Newcastle?

With the recent controversy overload over at Newcastle United in the past week or so, I feel I should have a go at explaining what on Earth is going on!

As you may know from previous posts, I am a big Newcastle fan but even I am quite confused about recent events so forgive me if I'm wrong! Right, here goes...

At the start of this week, Joe Kinnear - manager of Newcastle in - was officially appointed as Newcastle United's sporting director. This lead to belief that Derek Llambias - the sporting director at the time - would take the financial side of the the club with Kinnear in control of the football side.

Kinnear came into the club claiming he would have the final say on transfers and would have an office at Newcastle's training ground to monitor player performance. This caused much outrage among Newcastle fans!

The papers claimed Pardew had become unsettled with the appointment of Kinnear and they have had talks to discuss the club. Pardew has returned with a statement saying he will not be quiting the club. Even more controversy was provided by Derek Llambias when he decided to resign as Mike Ashley's second hand man!

In the past few days, club legend Alan Shearer has said he is disgusted with the state of the recent events at the club and is there any wonder? Joe Kinnear has decided to add even more controversy by having a go back at Shearer! There's rumours that Mike Ashley will bring in Gus Poyet if Alan Pardew becomes overwhelmed by the situation and decides to leave.

What do you guys think of the whole situation? Comment below and feel free to subscribe!
