Derek Llambias has come out today and communicated further with the Newcastle fans, and that’s good and it’s something that Derek must do regularly, as he attempts to right the terrible damage that the current regime have inflicted on Newcastle United.
Derek Llambias – thinks Newcastle will end up with 46 points
Derek is also very confident Newcastle will stay up and has boldly predicted they will surpass their safety target – easily – and he rightly says other people think he is potty.
Derek said today:
“I think we’ll stay up.” “We’ve had conversations about where we are going points-wise. I have said 46 points.”
“Everybody thinks I am potty, but I’m confident of it.” “Then we can crack on with where we are going in the future.”
“A lot of it is going to be filling the holes we need to fill. We’ve been unfortunate with our injuries. But we’re looking to build this squad.”
And with Mike Ashley now back at St James’ Park and promising to rebuild the club big time in the summer, Llambias said the tycoon is very enthusiastic about the future of the club.
“This is his passion. He’s a football supporter generally.” “He loves Newcastle. I can’t remember when he went out before or after a game.”“He misses that. He loved being out in the Toon after games.” “Even during the time he wasn’t coming to matches, he was at his local pub kicking every ball in front of the TV.”
Mike Ashley will probably become very bold after one of the home games, and maybe that could be our next home game with Manchester United. If Newcastle can win that game, against the best club team in e world – officially, then we think Mike will throw caution to the wind and go our night-clubbing again in Newcastle.
We all know Mike likes a good time.
He certainly seems to have caught the Newcastle fever, and we saw his young daughter at the game oin Sunday, and she seems to be at every game – did you see her try to wave to the camera?
So hey, maybe if the lads can beat Manchester United, things may be looking up.
Of course, just to put a little does of reality in this, the chances of Newcastle doing that are slim, but with 52000 fans roaring on the lads, who knows?
And Newcastle United are the only team visiting Old Trafford in the Premier League this season, who have not been beaten.
