This 47-second Jamie Redknapp rant proves how much he knows about this NUFC side – Video

Jamie Redknapp made one of the most ridiculous statements about Newcastle after the Aston Villa match, and he has now proven himself as one of the worst mainstream pundits to have an opinion on our club.

In his short, ridiculous “analysis”, he tells us that Newcastle is the fictional word “paceless” and that things wouldn’t change if Steve Bruce was replaced as manager.

Before I continue my rant in response to his latest set of clueless comments, Here’s exactly what he had to say after the game:

For one, the idea that Newcastle don’t have players in the team who possess have any pace is absolute ridiculous. In our squad we have: Almiron, ASM, Yedlin, Lewis, Murphy, Fraser, Gayle and Wilson all gifted with a good amount of speed.

Blooming heck, even players like Manquillo, Matty Longstaff, Clark, Dummett, Hayden and Lascelles can hardly be accused of being tanks of players!

It’s as if Redknapp believes that our team is solely made out of Jonjo Shelvey and Andy Carroll!

And then we come on to this bizarre take that it “won’t change” if we get rid of Steve Bruce. What on Earth are you talking about?

It has already been proven that we have changed for the worse under Steve Bruce and I must point out that the squad that we had before had arguably more “paceless” players than we have now.

A forward combination using any of ASM, Almiron, Fraser, Wilson, Gayle and Murphy is instantly quicker than a combination of Rondon, Almiron, Perez, Gayle and Joselu. That’s without mentioning that you then have extra, different options of Joelinton and Carroll to use in any way that you may see fit.

One thing that I’m sure a new manager would try and do is play players in their correct positions and give them jobs that make sense.

I’m starting to wonder if Steve Bruce has dirt on every single pundit out there because this sort of opinion on football should get you the boot.

Different managers exist and have different track records for a reason because, like players, they have different abilities and different strengths. We know that Steve Bruce’s strengths are blaming everybody else and giving players time off from training, so we can only assume that any other manager would come in with different, probably better strengths.

Can we call for both Bruce and Redknapp to be sacked, please?

  1. Jonny – I watched it mate and I think the point he was trying to make was it would be a short term fix – and he’s right. What he was getting at is Ashley & the lack of interest and investment is the problem & whoever comes in will have the same problems.

    That said, it’s a short term fix that needs to happen for the longer term sale of the club to happen – coz if we go down we are Blackburn stuck with the Venkys.

  2. I think he was talking more about the speed they attack and move the ball rather than how fast they can actually run.
    TBH I agree with the general sentiment of what he was saying.

    I see what you’re saying , but he’s so wrong about this supposed ‘lack of pace’ and then says ‘the football won’t change’ if we replace Bruce – as if to suggest no manager is going to improve this group of players. He’s a shocking pundit.

    Olly – I think he means the pace of our play over the pace of our players. We are a counter attacking team that passes the ball backwards!!.

    I’ve said before a new manager could get better out of SOME of our players. But let’s be honest, the likes of Ritchie & Shelvey were bang average players for Rafa too.

    “Not an ounce of pace in that team. Who’s going to run past anyone?”

    Pretty sure that refers to the speed of our players and their ability to go past a man. Quite sure ASM, Almiron and Fraser could do that if used right. Lewis was also great at this last season for Norwich.

    I do agree that we are so slow and negative for this so-called ‘counter-attacking’ side.
