Looking forward to the new season, I remember that…

2 years ago

I remember the excitement of looking forward to the start of the new season…couldn’t wait.

Right now I actually dread the season ahead. I’m not being a drama queen. I really mean it!

Where is the ambition?

Just think of what Rafa did and what he continually said about the potential of the club, what needed to be done. How we could build on the foundation that he was creating at Newcastle United.

The prospect of life with Rafa and a new owner was mouthwatering, only for it all to fall on deaf ears.

I have nothing against Steve Bruce, even with his association with the Mackems. After all, we did have Jeff Clarke, Paul Bracewell and Barry Venison to name a few, all much-loved by the Geordies.

I wrote to The Mag last week, with an email entitled ‘A Prevailing Sadness’, about how strongly I feel about boycotting the Arsenal game – any game to be honest!

Stop going to the games, leave the terraces empty.

I know it goes against the grain of all black-and-whites out there but there is strength in solidarity.

Mike Ashley doesn’t deserve our beloved club and he clearly doesn’t think we deserve a club to be proud of either!!

Try and think of how we all feel, whenever we talk about Newcastle United to friends, family members, and people we’ve only just met.

The mention of our club never brings a smile to our faces, we never seem to have any optimism.

Even when we’re abroad, we are normally telling people how ‘sh…’ our club/team is.

How can this be good for our general morale and why should we be putting money into Ashley’s pockets, when we all feel like this??

STOP GOING TO THE GAMES!! It won’t kill you, but it might, just might, kill Ashley’s determination to humiliate us and bleed us dry.

What have we got to lose?
