We were hoping for a “normal” season in that we would not be fighting relegation and be around mid-table most of the season.
That’s a lot different to most seasons under current owner Mike Ashley who has never invested enough money in the side to make Newcastle into a really good side.
We were unlucky to get an English Billionaire who didn’t want to invest in the club he bought.
When he did invest and we finished 5th in the league in 2012 he refused to improve the team that summer and lo and behold we were fighting relegation the next season as we struggled with the extra Europa League games.
Ashley cannot seem to understand that he needs to keep spending money (investing) to keep the team good and competitive.
But Ashley seems a lost cause in that he will never be a good owner of any football club.
If he eventually goes to Rangers FC – the best of luck to their fans.
His personality seems too stubborn to be a successful owner as he has admitted he knows very little about football.
But enough of Mike Ashley – this article is supposed to be positive.
In this difficult time for Newcastle, fans are trying to stay upbeat and positive and discussing things like players who could help us in January.
The vast majority also support our manager in these difficult times.
We are relying on the skills an experience of Mr. Rafa Benitez to keep us in the Premier League this season.
Newcastle should go in for a move for giroud he need first team footie we need a striker #Nufc

I’m looking forward to seeing how Jacob Murphy improves under Rafa. He’s took a lot of crap from fans early doors but the last couple of games has definitely improved. #NUFC

Not selling #nufc is surely off the table for Mike Ashley. Should we fall into the abyss again and lose Rafa, we lose so much value.

All those whinging about Newcastle’s performances..if it’s not Rafa,which washed up has been would you want in charge? Back Rafa, support the team,pray for a change in the regime,#nufc

The eagerness and arrogance of some #nufc fans in criticising Rafa is ridiculous. Nobody ever said he doesn’t make mistakes.

Wow I’ll pretend I didn’t read that!! We have one of the best managers in the league with one of the worse squads!yet we still aren’t in the drop zone! Keep the faith back the lads! Rather Rafa at the helm then anyone else #nufc

I want a takeover to be announced tomorrow and at least 40 million quid to spend in January, please, and Rafa to stay of course.#nufc

Any angry #nufc fans out there wanna have at moan at Rafa or his team selection this season in the Prem, think back to 12 months to the day when we lost to Forest & those 2 Henri Lansbury pens, get a grip man. #nufc

This demonstrates the stupidity of some fans. Is Rafa perfect – absolutely not, but he’s still a world class manager working with a limited squad. SA and TP are just journeymen who bounce from club to club without winning anything. Middle of the road tosh. #nufc
