It’s time for Newcastle United fans to get behind their club, and the time to start is tomorrow against Blackburn Rovers.
Newcastle fans must fully back the club – right now
With Joe Kinnear having bravely accepted the interim manager job for six games, he will do his level best to stabilize the ship until the club is sold, presumably in October.
But the new owners will not fully take over for 6 games, so if we don’t include tomorrow’s game, then the 6th game for Joe will be on 9th November at Fulham – an obvious 3 points for us – just like last year. 😀
We have no idea who the new owners will be, but it could well be the Nigerian consortium fronted by Chris Nathaniel, but we don’t know that for sure. In fact we have no idea at all, if the truth be told.
Hopefully we’ll get to know soon, but whoever the new owners are, it looks like they will get Kevin Keegan back as manager, and there is also talk of Alan Shearer also joining him. We’re not too sure what Alan will feel about this, since he did turn down the opportunity to work with Kevin in January.
We have to think the new potential owners have already talked to Kevin and Alan about taking over the helm. But the club may not be in very good shape in mid-November, unless Joe does a really good job, since if we are to qualify for Europe come next May, we must put an end to the terrible form we’ve been showing, over the last 3 weeks.
And there is a good possibility we will not get anything out of tomorrow’s game, but let’s support the lads for the full 90 minutes whatever happens, since they will be doing their very best too, and may even be buoyed by the news today.
It’s just a pity Joe Kinnear will not be there tomorrow, because his very presence could have helped the players, and maybe inspire them to good things tomorrow, even if it’s just a pep talk before the game and at half time.
It would be another disaster if next summer we still can’t offer European Football, because that will limit the class of players we’ll be able to attract to the club.
So now’s the time for all Newcastle fans to get fully behind the club again, forget about what’s happened with Ashley, and specifically get behind Joe Kinnear, Chris Hughton and the players.
It looks like Mike Ashley has indeed kept his word, and has sold the club as quickly as he can.
Now it’s time for us, the fans, to back the club and back our players, and stop all the nonsense to do with boycotts and the like against Ashley. That only ever hurts the club and the fans, let’s face it.
Let’s start now since it looks the nightmare may be coming to an end.
In fact, it looks like there really is light at the end of the tunnel – and maybe even a little sunshine. 😀
