Stop concentrating on the negatives? Can somebody please point out the positives at Newcastle United!

4 years ago

Following defeat for Newcastle United against Chelsea, and once again showing that cup runs in this competition are a thing of the past, the weaknesses in our team/squad are thrown in our faces with almost a giggle in the distance coming from the unscrupulous owner of our beloved club.

I will not get on the back of the players and never have, especially watching them applying the effort which they do week in and week out, it’s just a great shame that the quality isn’t there to back the effort up.

I recently read the article asking us to lay off the whingeing and refrain from being so negative… brilliant… can someone please point out the positives?

Having seen Keegan light up the City in the 90s, then Sir Bobby also bring a togetherness back to everyone involved in the club, I can honestly say that in Rafa we have the pleasure of not only a great, tactically aware manager (although many fans will disagree – but you don’t see what he does on the training ground day in and day out), but also a one-off manager who becomes part of the club and its community, just like the two mentioned previously.

Unfortunately, due to the complete disregard THAT MAN has for the club and its support, we are highly likely to lose an opportunity which we are probably not going to have again for a very long time.

The thought of Rafa walking away in the summer worries me but I will fully support his decision to do so. If I worked for a bare-faced liar who could not even lie straight in bed, then I would also be looking to get out and move to pastures new.

Yet here we have one of the top managers in the world who is obviously reluctant to leave the fans and the club behind.

There is no danger of THAT MAN ever reading these messages, so the only way is to empty the stadium. Not to force his hand to spend but to convince him that his only option is to sell.

As hard as it will be, my time is up at the end of the season. When Rafa walks that is the last straw!

He (Mike Ashley) has proven time and time again that what he says and what he does are two completely different things (although he doesn’t say a great deal).

I, like a great many others, am absolutely wounded with what our club has become, and the deceitful, underhand way in which it is being ran.

Stop concentrating on the negatives???

I once again ask anyone to point out the positives!
