The new Newcastle United 5 year plan

7 years ago

Remember the Newcastle United 5 year plan? The one that should have concluded 12 months ago.

Remember Derek Llambias saying: “In five years’ time I would hope we would be challenging for everything’.

So why is it Newcastle United are satisfied, 6 years later, with mid-table finishes?

Why are we satisfied with not taking domestic cup competitions seriously?

I propose a new 5 year plan, which is to be achieved by the end of January 2020:

1/ We as fans do not rest until we rid Newcastle United of the cancer that is Mike Ashley and his puppets.

2/ We look to attract an owner with genuine passion for our great club.

3/ We appoint a manager (not a head coach) who has a proven track record and can restore the pride and passion at our beloved club.

4/ We go out every Saturday afternoon with our heads held high looking like we’re ready for the fight and give nothing short of 100%.

5/ We take cup competitions seriously and look like there is a desire to reach another Wembley final.

6/ We aim for the stars, and if we fall short, we can hold our heads high and say we gave it our best.

7/ We turn the tide on Sunderland and subject them to successive defeats, or die trying.

8/ We will not settle for mediocrity, mid-table is not an achievement.

9/ We re-establish ourselves as a club that CAN compete with the likes of Southampton and Swansea.

10/ We once again make St James’ Park a place where others fear to tread.

We’ve been there before, we can achieve it again, but it will never happen under the current regime.

Our new 5 year plan needs to start now and number 1 on the list is our top priority.
