What Newcastle United Is All About – Maybe Mike Ashley Should Have A Look?

8 years ago

Looking for Aston Villa related links ahead of Sunday’s match, I came across this video footage which formed part of the build up to Setanta’s coverage of Sam Allardyce’s first ever competitive match (mis)managing Newcastle United.

Setanta’s coverage and Sam’s management (thankfully) may be long gone, but this footage encapsulates brilliantly in so many ways, what it means to be a Newcastle fan.

I’d love to think that somebody would stick this under the nose of Mike Ashley and force him to watch it; the dreams and ambition of Newcastle fans and what could be.

That first match of Ashley’s reign was a boring 0-0 draw against Villa and now almost seven years on we are wondering when it will be his last game.

Maybe it wouldn’t do any harm either to sit down Alan Pardew and his players to watch this before Sunday’s clash with Villa, the poison at St.James’ Park may start at the top but the players are currently showing no reason to believe that it hasn’t now reached them as well.
