Some Newcastle fans really need to consider what they want from 2017

What do Newcastle fans really want from 2017?

I have been reading various reports & comments after the defeat to Oxford and I think some Newcastle fans really need to consider what they want from 2017.

Don’t get me wrong, I feel sorry for the Newcastle fans who travelled to Oxford to watch that rubbish.

The players in which Rafa put trust in, let him down badly, Mitro had a stinker and it was a bad day all round.

Now though, let’s get this all into the context the magic of the FA Cup and all that. Tell you what, bollocks to it.

I couldn’t give two stuffs about the FA Cup – 2017 is going to be the biggest year this club has seen for a long time. We are at the biggest crossroads as a club in years.

So before certain fans want to keep jumping all over this club with the moaning, have a think about what you really want for this club in 2017? A cup run and suffer in the league and have injuries and miss out on promotion, then the same bunch will say the club and Rafa got their priorities wrong!!

You can’t have it all. I want the league, or just promotion will do. That’s our target and nothing else.  What do you want, to fail? So you can moan and say I told you so?

For the first time in years we have a manager who we should put utter trust and faith in to see us over the line. I know I’m only talking about a minority of fans – but honestly you are never happy.

If we won the league, the same lot will moan and find something that wasn’t good enough.

Between now and May is going to be squeaky bum time, as Fergie once said. It’s going to be nip and tuck all the way to the end but we have to be together in this. Stuff the League Cup and FA Cup for me. A top two finish is what we need and want and that is top of the list before anything else.

I have 100% faith in Rafa to get us over the line but what is hacking me off, is some fans just want to bring him down. Never happy and got to moan. What do you want?

Is this another reason for the atmosphere at home games being so poor? Fans nervous about what lies ahead, or just because they want to moan?

I’m just so passionate about this club and hate all the bitterness from the minority who will just never be happy.
