Rob Lee: "The five years I spent at Newcastle with Kevin were undoubtedly the best of my life and it's devastating to see the state of the club at the minute.
"I feel sorry for the fans because they've put up with so much over the years.
"Unfortunately it seems to be getting worse before it can get any better.
"Until it gets sorted out - and I can't see that happening soon - then Newcastle are going to be in real trouble.
"If they are not careful then they could end up being involved in a relegation fight, which would be disastrous for them.
"Kevin is a fantastic manager. His man-management skills are second to none. He would know when to put an arm around you and when to give you a rollocking.
"There were such high hopes when Mike Ashley came back and everyone thought that he was going to be a saviour.
"And then of course Kevin came back and it looked like the dawn of a great new start.
"But it's all gone wrong."

Made 298 league appearances for Charlton before moving to Newcastle for £700,000. England international who has been a superb servant to Newcastle. Was going to sign for Middlesbrough but Keegan told him Newcastle was nearer to London. The little liar! Signed for Derby County soon after Warren Barton but couldn't save them from relegation.
