Lee Charnley has spoken – well not exactly spoken – but he’s written something to fans following Newcastle’s release of their financial results for the year through last June 30th.
They are excellent results with the profits after tax being at a massive £32.4M.
Of course most of us are very worried right now that it’s almost certain we will be relegated this season to the Championship so good financial results mean absolutely nothing to the faithful fans – in fact it makes things worse.
Managing Director Lee Charnley – bland message
Here in what the Managing Director has said:
“We appreciate that, at the present time, football results and not financial results are what our supporters want to see from us.”
“That said, it would be wrong for the Club not to acknowledge the submission of our accounts for the period July 2014 to June 2015.”
“We understand, however, that what you want to see are results on the pitch. There are still 21 points to play for and lots can, and likely will, happen over the next seven games.”
“We, of course, acknowledge the seriousness of our situation. However we must remain positive and retain the belief that we can secure our Premier League status and we are doing everything we can to support Rafa and the team.”
While I could blast the incompetence of the Board, that’s all I seem to be doing these days, so I’ll refrain from doing that.
We need to support Rafa Benitez and the players 100% – and hope he can somehow achieve a miracle in these final seven games.
