This Is Why Newcastle Fans Are So Anxious Right Now


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.

    The no comment thing is pretty funny on the official nufc coms, not really relevant on this blog though

    And the train moves on but the Dunes remain unwavering.

    50 Years ago on this day we won the Inter Cities Fairs Cup.

    Our last major trophy.

    Thank you all of the top management, especially the present shower, for this dismal lack of success since that day.

    A record to be truly ashamed of!

    NB With apologies to certain team managers involved during this sad period.

    If you see a picture of Ashley scowling it makes him look like a vindictive fat tw@t however if you see one of him smiling he looks like a smug vindictive fat tw@t.

    rich@12 and jib @16….there could be other reasons why rafa should go to training ground to see charnley …depends on whether there are more visits this week by rafa….couldve been to see latest negotiations with cashley on paper…next two weeks will tell when season tickets go up for sale

    “jazzy, as it stands, we’re on a knife edge. On one side is a nice soft landing and a platform to build with new owners, a higher transfer budget and a better than even chance that Rafa stays. A better place than last year.

    On the other, we have no new owner, no World-class manager and half the squad either leaving or discontent. An abyss we may never climb out of.

    The next week will decide the future of our club for the next generation or even longer.”

    Yours is better written, obviously….

    Shay I think you are spot on…. This is Rafa’s people putting pressure on Ashley and the Sheikh to get there act together and get everything done one way or another

    From previous, I know Mourinho won’t be hated – we’re not like that, I was over-egging the pudding for the purposes of comparison. However, he’d be under pressure from the start as one grumpy slip up or an early bad run of results and the average fan would be clamouring for Rafa’s return.

    Mickey, you’re still optimistic? I am too. I’m not sure how Fats can scupper this is proof of funds etc are in place. So the delay must be with the FA etc? This is hard going…. My birthday is Thursday, what a present a Sheikh would be! But I think think this could run 🙁

    It would be great to have the takeover but definitely marred if mourinho replaced rafa

    Rob Leenio,

    Yes your post did inspire me . I had been thinking of a good analogy since yesterday’s news with Rafa at the training ground about why we are so desperate at the moment. Your post was the perfect one.
