Please go to the game

6 years ago

We need a win; it is as simple as that.

Young and old, big and small, rich and poor, negative and positive: this coming Sunday, Newcastle United needs you.

We are all suffering, sick, fed up and disgusted by the way Newcastle United has been dragged through the mud by our owner.

Sometimes, I have found myself at games this season wanting to see us lose, concede far more goals.

Sitting in the away end at Leicester, I was almost urging them to score more, hoping that it would spark some sort of reaction from the club. However, relegation would be a disaster, the worst possible result for Newcastle United and I fear that there would be no way back.

The only ones who would suffer from relegation would be us, the fans.

I believe that this Sunday is the biggest game in the history of the football club; the result will be a starting point for all of the years to come at the club.

We know that on its day St James Park can be a fortress, the greatest stadium in the world. Thanks to the club, the abject performances of the team, Mike Ashley, Lee Charnley and John Carver, this season, and especially 2015, has destroyed all love, all hope, and all noise from our support. Home and Away.

I would urge all fans to forget about that for 90 minutes on Sunday, we need to win; we need to turn up and create the best possible atmosphere. For 90 minutes only. Be the 12th man.

For those of you still deciding whether to go or not, whether to watch it in the pub, on the television, or not at all. Please go to the game.

The players may not necessarily need you, John Carver may not need you, and we all know Mike Ashley doesn’t need you, but our club, Newcastle United, needs our support now more than it ever has done before. Otherwise, I fear that relegation to the championship this season, of all seasons, could be the beginning of the end for our once great club.

Let’s leave the negativity for 90 minutes and do our best to roar the lads on. After that, win or lose, we can do what we want.

Howay the lads.

On a side note, I fully back Sunday’s post-game sit-in protest. As supporters we have very little control over anything, let’s take control of this situation, live on sky, and for once, bring some meaningful change to our football club.
