It wasn’t supposed to be like this when the season started last August when most Newcastle fans were confident of a top 6 finish after we had brought in 9 new players to augment our squad.
Mike Ashley and fans – what happened – we have actually scored a goal

But something has gone drastically wrong this season and the decision to fire Sam Allardyce seems to have backfired as the team has had to get used to a completely new way of playing, half way through the season.
It”s akin to trying to change the engine of a jet while the plane is still flying – not easy.
It turns out that Mike Ashley was targeted by angry Newcastle fans yesterday, during Liverpoolâ€™s 3-0 annihilation of the Magpies which would have been a lot worse had Liverpool not settled for a 3-0 win ahead of their crucial Inter Milan game on Tuesday night.
They were streets ahead of Newcastle in everything they did, and while captain Michael Owen didn’t get any service up front, he looked a pale shadow of the once rampant goal scoring striker of the past.
Once the 3rd goal went in after 51 minutes, (Rafa at half time – let’s get a quick 3rd goal and we’ll call it a game at 3-0 and Jose and Steven will be rested), some fans threw accusations at the owner of not coming up with the money to buy decent players.
This has become one of the most disastrous Newcastle seasons on record, and that’s saying something.
If we get relegated it will go down as one of the best squad probably every to taste relegation, although we may still be deluding ourselves here.
That says something about the characters of the players we have doesn’t it?
If we go down let’s clear the boards of these players who are just in it for the money – there’s quite a few of them as we all know.
Then we can bring in players who actually want to fight for the club – what a concept.
