‘Time for The Mag to lighten up and support this Newcastle United team’

11 months ago

I read The Mag twice a day to get relevant news on Newcastle United, as I’m sick of the substandard Ashley crawling bilge that passes as football journalism in The Chronicle.

However, apart from a few articles that are informing and relevant, I find a never ending barrage of negativity or comments that are like a groundhog day of petty spite.

Yes I hate the current ownership and share the frustration it causes but I don’t go on and on crying about it.

I am old enough to remember the days of Westwood and McKeag but barring the infamous “Kill The Board” graffiti outside SJP, people didn’t moan on and on and on about it and still supported our team.

Now though, with the advent of social media and mobile phones, everybody seems more intent on futile moaning and treating our manager with total disrespect.

The ongoing boycott will in time only hurt the morale of our players and not ultimately have any financial impact on an owner who is awash with TV money and the profits from player sales.

Maybe the serial moaners should all get together on the Town Moor on match days and find other ways to make themselves miserable.

Moaning cannot change our ownership and bleating on and on and on about the same subject is close to insanity.

Like all dictators before him, our owner’s arrogance, ego and sense of total invulnerability will lead to his own downfall.

Our strength as supporters comes form the love of our city and its club and our devotion to them should stand above venting impotent anger and frustration.

We are a one club city and a proud and robust people who shall endure long after the current owner is just a bad memory.

So take pride and support the team whose colours we wear!
