It’s a long time since the last Fans’ Forum meeting which was held last year on June 29th.
Lee Charnley will be at the meeting and hopefully will answer the fans’ questions in some detail with one of the significant items being how we are going to sign Rafa Benitez to a long-term deal to keep him on Tyneside for many years to come.
You never know – maybe the man himself will make a brief appearance.
Lee Charnley – happy because we’ll pick up about £125M next month from Premier League?
The other big question is whether Mike Ashley is still going to sell the club this summer and what is the status of potential buyers and who are they?
We doubt Lee will tell us who they are but maybe tell us whether Amanda Staveley is still interested in buying the club.
And the third big item – linked back to Rafa Benitez – is how much money will he be given this summer to spend.
Obviously, we don’t expect an actual figure but some idea of whether he will again be restricted in his spending like he was last summer; in retrospect, that was stupid and unacceptable.
But it should be an upbeat meeting next Wednesday night with Newcastle United doing so well this year.
Over our last 15 games, we have 7 wins, and only 3 defeats and 26 points.
Our future success is almost assured as long as we can keep Mr. Benitez at the club.
Howay The Lads!!
