I’m already over this Newcastle United disaster

6 days ago

As a Newcastle United supporter I have got used to being booted in the “Henry Halls” on a regular basis over the years.

The fact that the media still churn out Hereford beating NUFC in 1972, proves that they thrive on our misfortune, and that we are also a lot bigger club than most of them would like to admit.

So, I’m already over this latest Newcastle United disaster at St James Park on Saturday.

I have woke up this morning in a positive fashion and with incoming transfers on my mind.

You might think I’m joking but I’m looking forward to Newcastle United playing Watford on Saturday.

I referred to most of the players as “duffers” after Cambridge and some of them are going to get a chance at instant redemption.

First of all, we urgently need a goalscoring centre-forward and focal point for when we attack. We really needed him last week.

I have the utmost faith that the manager and owners are currently working 24/7 to bring the right players to Newcastle United this month.

I’m excited and cannot stop scouring the media for any little snippets of information of a breakthrough.

I cannot wait to see new blood coming through, what I hope is going to become a revolving door.

I was heartened by Yasir Al-Rumayyan’s presence at the game on Saturday. This man isn’t turning out for a media shoot in the stands, as we saw with Mike Ashley. He is bigger (much bigger) and better than that.

He’s here on serious business, to add direction and reassurance to Amanda Staveley and her husband Mehrdad Ghodoussi, of that I am sure.

At the minute, I feel like getting on a roof-top like the Beatles and blasting out “Don’t let me down”, I am getting so worked up.

However, I know that will be unnecessary because what happened in October was “Real and not a dream” (bloody hell, really on one and heading for my vinyl soon).

It’s amazing what a couple of whiskeys and a good night’s kip can do for the mood.

Howay the Lads, we still love you even when you do us off.
