The way Newcastle United operate these days is the sooner we can get to 40 points in the league the better, because that means we will remain in the Premier League, and that’s the only motivation Mike Ashley has in owning Newcastle United, keeping the club in the big money.
The powers that be at Newcastle – Ashley and first lieutenant Charnley
The win at Hull City on Saturday was massive because it took the talk off a potential relegation battle, and onto the fact that we could be safe in the Premier League sooner rather than later.
We are now 11 points above the drop zone with 15 games to play.
The champagne corks will be popping with the powers that be at Newcastle once 40 points is reached, because to the present day Newcastle United – that’s real success with those who run the club.
Forget about actually wining something like the FA Cup, after all we haven’t won anything for 45 years so we’re not missing anything and in the PL – that money just keeps rolling in.
That’s real success in the eyes of Newcastle’s Billionaire owner Mike Ashley – after all that’s what he deals in – money.
The sad thing is that we don’t see this attitude changing much at all, but maybe we will be lucky again by bringing in a few top players in the summer – players that the bigger clubs miss.
We’ve seen today that if a big club does come in for one of our targets – like Spurs came in for Dele Alli over the last few days – we cannot complete – or more accurately we wont compete.
And Newcastle could even have a good season next term, but that will be more because of good luck than good management – much like what happened three years ago when we finished in 5th place.
The powers that be at Newcastle think success lies in the impressive financial figures we will generate each year, and success has nothing to do with what we do on the field of play.
Other of course than getting enough points every season not be relegated – and not be in a relegation scrap either – and in those cases the champagne corks go a popping.
It’s all so very sad.
And am I being cynical in this article – yes – but I’m also being truthful.
