Ex-Newcastle Star ‘I Can’t Believe The Same Mistakes Are Being Made’

8 years ago

You don’t need to live on Tyneside to know what is, or isn’t, happening at St.James’ Park.

Thanks to modern technology via social media, it was all too easy to follow the summer transfer window from anywhere in the world.

Ex-Newcastle United star, Robbie Elliott, is now over in America but he has been giving his thoughts to the Chronicle on what did/didn’t happen in the last few months;

“I don’t know what to believe any more in terms of what comes out of the club, in fact it is getting to the stage where I do not believe anything that they say.

It is like the boy that cried wolf, they say one thing – such as they are going to sign players, then it doesn’t happen.

We have been told all summer that players would arrive but you start to wonder whether that was ever the plan? It is just so disappointing.

The only thing to keep me going on deadline day was the Geordie humour, I think they had to find a funny side to it or they’d have rioted.

Our full strength team is top quality, we’re strong all over the pitch, but we just needed strengthening.

I can’t believe the same mistakes are being made.

There’s a difference between wanting your club to buy just for the sake of it and knowing they need to buy, that was us.”

Earlier we reported that Steve Harper had said exactly the same thing, the collective belief if that Newcastle have got a decent first but could face serious difficulties if injuries hit.

Mike Ashley could regret not taking out an insurance policy this summer.
