Newcastle Co-Owner Sends Out Terrific Message After Safety Is Confirmed



Newcastle’s place in the Premier League for next season was secured last night with 18th-placed Leeds suffering a 3-0 defeat against Chelsea at Elland Road. They are nine points behind the Magpies with just two matches left to play.

Co-owner Merhdad Ghodoussi sent out the following terrific message on Twitter after safety was confirmed.

The owners inherited a mess when they bought the club after years of neglect. The squad was not improved last summer and, in fact, one could argue it was weaker than the one that ended last season.

In October, Newcastle United were handed a lifeline with the takeover. The damage had seemingly been done with Newcastle floundering at the bottom of the table. The owners took their time to find the right man to turn things around in Eddie Howe.

Newcastle did not pick up their first win until the 4th of December against Burnley, their 15th fixture. No club had reached safety after not winning in their first 14 matches. Newcastle have now done that.

As Ghodoussi states above, it took everyone at the club and the terrific fans who cheered the lads on to achieve this historic moment. Now its onward and upward and hopefully, we’ll never have to worry about relegation again.

    Eddie Howe on being safe: “It’s an amazing feeling to be mathematically safe. It’s great to finally have achieved the objective we set out to do and full credit to the players who, from minute one, have given us everything.” #nufc

    Eddie Howe will assess Elliot Anderson in pre-season before deciding whether he will be loaned out again – or stay at Newcastle. #nufc

    “Everyone associated with the club has played their part in what has been a remarkable turnaround in form, which we needed. To have two games spare to do it in is not something we thought we’d be able to do but it’s great to be in this position.”

    Eddie Howe believes a rebuilt training ground will help Newcastle attract ‘world-class’ players. #nufc

    Aye happy belated birthday Clint. All the best.

    Had a little chuckle yesterday reading your ‘found in a guitar case’ post.

    I meant to comment then forgot, you’ve got some crappy mates on here.

    I guess we will find out about Targett soon? Especially as both teams are safe so if there was an agreed fee and we wanted him we would just go get him?

    If we do get Lodi it will show a ruthless streak that we need moving forward Targett will always get an amazing reception when he comes back here though

    Each place in the EPL is worth roughley £2.2 million, so the difference between 9th, where we were, and 14th, where we are, is £11m – that would pay Messi’s salary for a year 😉

    Looking for Saka to emulate de bruyne tonight with 4 and Son to get a hat trick. That’ll give arsenal nothing to play for on Monday.

    Thanx mate.

    Wouldn’t it be nice?
    Turn them and burnley over and actually beat Rafa and thing’s points tally.
    From where we were, it’s barely credible!

    Coach of the season!

    Wonder how much of a mention our incredible turnaround will get in the press/media/punditry?
    Should be interesting.
