We’ve said it a few times recently that every defeat Newcastle have – and it’s now been 8 in the last 9 games – Amanda Staveley will be thinking twice about buying Newcastle United.
We are now in the relegation zone, and with West Ham winning 3-0 at Stoke they will have plenty of confidence for our game in London next weekend.
And then we play Manchester City at home so the chances of Newcastle getting out of the relegation zone before January – given our current form – has to be slim.
And it’s usually difficult to get new players in during January, so Mike Ashley’s decision not to fund Rafa Benitez in the summer has been another disastrous mistake by the owner.
What we need to do is to try to get some wins, but that’s easier said than done, and it’s been a surprising drop off in form and results since we beat Crystal Palace 1-0 on October 21st to be in 6th place in the league.
Mike Ashley – disastrous owner for Newcastle
This has to be Rafa Benitez’ worst run in his management career, and if we don’t pick things up soon, it will become our worst ever run of games in the Premier League.
We just cannot see Amanda Staveley paying out £250M for a club that now looks like it will be back in the Championship next May.
Of course, there is still a chance we can survive, but we cannot keep losing games like we are at the moment especially against teams near us in the league table.
With every Newcastle defeat, Mike Ashley’s bargaining position only gets weaker.
And this is a complete hammer blow for Newcastle fans who in May thought it would be a good season for us.
We thought we had seen the last of the Championship and the football wilderness.
But then we forgot about Mike Ashley and his disastrous decisions – he has almost guaranteed he will not be able to sell the club because of his miserly ways in the summer.
He’s been an absolute disaster for Newcastle United for over ten years now.
Ashley could be responsible for a third relegation in his time as owner.
He needs to get out and quickly too.
