It’s a little bit under the radar screen but has been given some exposure by the Chronicle today – a terrific and positive article by NUFC Fans United on their website here.
They say that Amanda Staveley and PCP Capital Partners have ambitious long-term plans for Newcastle United and it looks as if they are not that worried about relegation.
Even if a disaster happened this season – relegation – they would still buy Newcastle – just at a much lower price; they are in it for the long haul.
But we don’t expect to be relegated – even though the last two months have been like days of old.
PCP Capital Partners see a sold-out stadium every home game – an incredible display of flags at the ground and a passionate fan base – one of the best in the world.
And yes – over 51,000 fans as the average home crowd when we were in the second division last season.
Rafa Benitez – could realize his vision for Newcastle with Ms. Staveley as the owner
And the report is more accurate than most of late – because they got the information by a novel way – they asked PCP Partners.
Well – I never.
Read their report because it paints a rosy picture of what Newcastle’s future could be like under Ms. Staveley.
She seems to share Rafa’s vision for the club and – as has been reported previously – she will only buy Newcastle if Rafa is the manager.
We’ve lost 8 of the last 9 games, but Rafa is going nowhere – well maybe to the very top with Newcastle United in a few years time.
The sooner, the better for most Newcastle fans.
Heres’ some of the article:
“Our understanding is that PCP have serious plans for Newcastle United; a Newcastle United with Rafa Benitez at the helm.”
“They want to realize those plans; have funds available that would bring continuous improvement to the playing squad over the next three transfer windows and beyond.”
“They do not see relegation as a threat to those plans and indeed, those plans show that they and their investors are in this for the long haul.”
“How do we know? Because we asked them!”
“Put simply, they are Ashley’s only hope if he seriously wants that clean break; selling to someone who wants to take the club forward and provide the investment needed to take the club to that next level that he himself says he cannot provide.”
And you can read the complete article here.
We need Ms. Staveley to give some transfer funds to Rafa for next month, and the deal needs to be completed as soon as possible.
Those are my two Christmas wishes for this year.
Hope Santa’s listening.
