Boos going sort this out?
Who do you think deserved the boos against Charlton?
I know that people have got their view about some kind of magic dynasty that will take Newcastle back or beyond the highs of the Keegan or Robson eras.
And I know that Glenn Roeder wasn't everybody's choice as manager at St James' Park when Graeme Souness was shown the door earlier this year.
But the current puzzle at the manager and chairman's hands at the minute can't be easy.
Especially when the XI chosen to beat Charlton fails miserably.
So perhaps on the basis of Saturday's game the boos should be aimed at the players.
After all they went out with the message from Roeder to go for the throats of Charlton and to floor the side bottom of the table.
They attacked the Addicks well enough but football is about making and taking your chances.
Seppe Rossi and Damien Duff should be capable of bulging the net against that lot.
But they failed to do their jobs on the night.
It was getting desperate towards the end but perhaps those late corners should have been going beyond the near post if we are being realistic about getting the season back on track.
The effort was there for most of the game but in football you have to be ruthless.
You have to bully teams and you have to channel some aggression into the faces of opponents.
Arsenal, Chelsea and Man U have all proved being nasty works in the Premiership in recent times and they have the trophies.
You can ask the Keanes, the Vieras and the Terrys of the world that and they'll certainly agree.
Now the Toon players have to hit back and silence those boos.
And let's be honest if winning is their way of answering their critics and shutting up the boo boys, then nobody will be complaining if humble pie is on the menu for the next few weeks.
