We asked NUFC fans how well Newcastle United new season preparations have gone…

1 month ago

The question we were asking NUFC fans on Friday was: ‘How well do you think Newcastle United preparations for the 2021/22 season have gone so far?’

Before voting, we asked Newcastle supporters to have a think about how these last few months have gone.

Could Mike Ashley, Lee Charnley and Steve Bruce possibly have done any better  in ensuring Newcastle United are as well prepared as humanly possible for the Premier League kicking off in nine days time?

We suggested a few things to consider:

How impressed have you been with the new signings NUFC have brought in so far?

The effort and ambition that has been shown so far by Newcastle United in the transfer window?

How well have the pre-season friendlies gone in terms of results and especially performances?

How well has Steve Bruce done using all his experience and expertise in preparing the team for the challenges ahead?

How impressed have you been when the NUFC Head Coach has spoken?

How well have the club done in ensuring the NUFC squad are free from injury and fully fit for the new season?

How reassured have you been by Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley’s communications to the supporters?

We then asked the Newcastle United fans to choose between 0-10. Where 10 is the preparations for the new Newcastle United season couldn’t have gone better and where 0 is you couldn’t imagine how they could have been any worse, plus everything in between…

These are the results:

10 – 1%

9 – 0%

8 – 0%

7 – 0%

6 – 0%

5 – 1%

4 – 2%

3 – 5%

2 – 7%

1 – 18%

0 – 66%

A staggering two thirds (66%) of Newcastle fans voting, couldn’t see how this summer’s preparations could possibly have been any worse.

Whilst another 25% gave it only 1 or 2 out of 10.

You are always going to get the usual group of jokers, with 1% rating the preparations 10 out of 10!!

However, it all makes very depressing reading and the mood of the fans perfectly sums up the dereliction of duty this summer has been from Mike Ashley and his minions. A week until the season starts and a total mess at St James Park, with Steve Bruce adding his own touch of ‘magic’ to proceedings.

When you take the average of all the NUFC fans who voted, it came out at 0.78 out of 10 in terms of how your average supporter thought things have gone this summer.

I simply can’t wait…
