Newcastle were humiliated by Chelsea on Saturday evening.
As soon as you saw Steve McClaren smiling in his pre-match interview on Saturday afternoon, you knew Newcastle United were going to get absolutely battered.
Indeed, that's what McClaren does. He smiles, he uses buzzwords and he tells his supporters Newcastle will be fine every single week. But he doesn't actually do his job.
Nor do his players, of course, and a combination of the two saw yet another humiliating defeat at the hands of Chelsea on Saturday.
The Blues have struggled all season yet thrashed Newcastle by several goals with absolute ease.
And that prompted a horrified reaction from Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp, who told Saturday Night Football at half-time: "That was probably the worst 20 minutes I’ve ever seen from a Premier League side."
Can you believe it,just sat down with a drink and they scored again,I'm turning over to the Chase on ITV— mick quinn (@mickquinn1089) February 13, 2016
Mike Ashley has been pally with McClaren for long enough now. Surely the manager has to go?
