First Team: P19 W3 D3 L13
Reserves: P15 W2 D4 L9
Academy: P14 W4 D1 L9
Which when added to this season’s stats, gives the following overall record since 1 January 2015:

There isn’t just a losing culture throughout the club, there is a poison that is spread from the very top.
The heart has been torn out of Newcastle United by Mike Ashley with his chaotic and manipulative running of our football club to support the rest of his business empire.
The chewing gum and string that maybe once held the club together despite his best efforts has now dried out/snapped and we are heading only one way while he remains as owner.
Steve McClaren, Graham Carr, Lee Charnley, Mike Ashley, Peter Beardsley, Dave Watson, Paul Simpson, Ian Cathro…none of you are part of the solution at Newcastle United, you are all part of the problem.
