With Newcastle’s decline over the last few years, fans have become a little (probably more than a little) disillusioned with the way Newcastle are being run as a club – there’s no question about that.
Remy Cabella at St. James’ Park yesterday
But the good news is that we still have a very good name in at least France and Holland, and Remy Cabella was gushing in his praise of Newcastle United when he jetted in to sign along the dotted line yesterday.
This is some of what Remy had to say yesterday:
“It is great to finally be a Newcastle player.” “I wanted to join a great English club and that is why I have arrived here.”
“I’m looking forward to pulling on the shirt and playing in this magnificent stadium, and I will give this Club my maximum.”
“This is a move that I really wanted to make, as I have heard nothing but good things about Newcastle United from everyone I spoke to.
The St. James’ Park stadium is really a magnificent sight and my brother and I – with my wife Madeline – were out on the town on Saturday night in Gallowgate, and that’s very close the to the stadium.
And getting that stadium built was the best thing Freddy Shepherd ever did while he was the Newcastle United Chairman for 10 years.
And Bobby Robson’s name for the ground – the Cathedral on the Hill – is a fitting way to talk about it – because it represents the religion among Newcastle fans that is Newcastle United.
And with the Benton training grounds going to be improved and refurbished dramatically over the next two years, we will soon have one of the best training centers of any club in Europe.
That’s all good news – but how do we get Mike Ashley to spend the considerable money Newcastle will be getting into their coffers in the coming years?
That’s the real question.
