We wish all our readers and all the fans of Newcastle United Football Club around the world, and everybody associated with the club a Merry Christmas and all the very best in the New Year.
New manager Steve Bruce has made an excellent start to his career at Newcastle and has the players right behind him.
We stand in 9th place in the table level on points with Manchester United – who we play tomorrow at Old Trafford.
If we can finish 9th this season it will be the second-best finish in the Premier League in the long and painful tenure of Mike Ashley as the owner.
We are hoping for the best of all things in the coming year, including a new and ambitious owner.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.
Ed and Neil Harrison.
