As it stands right now, we are teetering on an edge. Balancing on a blade between disaster and hope. Whichever way the wind blows could determine our clubs fate for the next generation.
On the one side is the pit we may have crawled out of. A twelve-year trek that has been filled with emotional traps, false hopes, sins of omission, and a collective scoffing at our expense.
A return to this pit after peering over the edge and glimpsing the other side would open a heightened abyss of despair. The possibility that this return could also be without Rafa Benitez; well, English does not possess language sufficient enough for this letdown.
Disaster and Glory– Newcastle on the edge
On the other side is a future that we dared only dream of but rarely speak. It is, in our opinion, a just future. One that is so foreign to our world.
We desire to be a club with a purpose fit for the city of Newcastle. Not to be a billboard for a billionaire.
We are called disillusioned and unrealistic. But just look at this club’s past. With hints of glory coupled with so much that is lacking.
We have Shearer, Robson, Keegan, and Milburn. The stars that have lit our often dark skies. But now we may have sunshine at last.
Over the past few weeks, we have dared to believe. If the covers get pulled over us again and by Mike Ashley, we may be numb for years to come.
This is why we are so anxious. This is why we are on hold right now as much as our club is.
