Toon Fans Have Had Enough Of Hughton!

Chants of "you don't know what you're doing" greeted Hughton's decision to substitute Obafemi Martins but not the struggling Shola Ameobi.

The pressure is on Hughton, in charge while Joe Kinnear recovers from triple heart bypass surgery, as another shocking result has the Magpies just two points above the drop zone.

Mike Ashley plans to stand by Kinnear, when very few fans believe the ex-Womble is our future.

We are one of the biggest clubs in the country and deserve better than a manager who was put out to dry five years ago sacked byLuton Town then Nottingham Forest ... and look where those two clubs have ended up!

But, as it stands, we have Hughton and Calderwood leading our fight against relegation ... and that worries the shit out of the Toon fans who were at Bolton on Sunday.

They are CLUELESS!

Martins was substituted while Shola Ameobi was left to wander around the Reebok as though he was selling programmes.

Perhaps Hughton, who continues to believe in Ameobi, knows more than we know.

Then again ... perhaps he doesn't!

Hughton: "We're under no illusions about where we are - we're in a relegation scrap with ten or twelve other teams. A series of wins or draws can creep you away from that."

"Oba has been out of action for some time and perhaps lacked that bit of sharpness.

"That's why I made the change."
