Few Newcastle fans will argue this has been a nightmare season for their club.
Mike Ashley – has tarnished the image of the Newcastle club
The way Newcastle has been run since Kevin Keegan left is a disgrace, and it’s really been too much like a circus at times at the club this season, if the truth be told.
And the club’s image has taken a big hit this season, and that’s just one of the things that has to be improved before the end of the season.
Of course nothing helps like winning games, and even through all the upheaval and pain for Newcastle fans, they have kept supporting the club and the away allocation of tickets is sold out for every away game.
It’s still recognized that Newcastle are the best supported club in the land, given the last time we won anything was 40 years ago, when Bobby Moncur was captain and Joe Harvey was manager.
We really don’t know if Llambias and Ashley are going to improve the way the club is run, but we have to be hopeful, following the good communications given out last week by Derek.
And it hasn’t helped when our best and most loyal player Shay Given, left the club, simply because he had had enough of the shenanigans going on at the club.
We don’t blame Shay one little bit, but it was hard to take, because it was a huge blemish on the club. It’s never good when players want to leave a club.
But it has helped to get Kevin Nolan, Ryan Taylor and Peter Lovenkrands into the club, as they have provided a big lift to both the squad and to the fans. All three are positive, and seem to have been delighted to come to Tyneside, and are all good players.
What we need now are some good results on the field, more communications each week from Llambias, and then a very good summer transfer window.
The good news is that we now know of quite a few players Newcastle want, and they are good players, so that’s given fans a bit of a lift.
There’s nothing that can lift the mood of a club quicker than a few wins, so we are hoping for a good result at home to Everton, next Sunday.
That will not be easy as the Merseyside club are 6th top and have won 7 of their 12 away games this season, and only lost 3.
But with good support at St. James’ Park, anything is possible, including Everton picking up their 4th loss on the road this season.
Howay The Lads!!
