If we had managed to beat Manchester United last Saturday the mood of Newcastle fans would have been a lot better than it is.
In our first 9 games of the season, we have managed to lose seven and drew the other two.
So we still have to win a game – and it’s the worst ever start to a season by Newcastle, which you will now have heard too many times.
Last season Crystal Palace lost their first 9 games in the league and still survived relegation comfortably, so there’s still hope for us this season.
Mike Ashley – Newcastle’s hopeless owner
Mike Ashley has single-handedly caused this problem at Newcastle, and for the second season running since we were promoted back to the Premier League, we will be fighting against relegation.
Just like before we were before we were relegated the second time in 2016.
He is not fit to be the owner of Newcastle United, but it looks like he will remain the owner through next summer at least.
But with the performance of the lads in the first 70 minutes at Old Trafford being the best we have played so far this season – there is real hope we can start winning games.
We will have to see if Mike Ashley will give Rafa some decent money to spend in January, but we are not going to hold our breath on that.
Ashley has made some horrendous mistakes while owner ar Newcastle United for a long and dreary eleven years.
But his biggest mistake of all is if he drives Rafa out of the club next June by not supporting him financially in the transfer windows.
