seriously, the players we had last season were just as shit and we finished 10th. keep the faith!

Difficult to get them to keep buying into the work ethic once it becomes obvious the club is going nowhere and the manager is leaving though

Fuck off

I don’t think this is a knee jerk to a poor result at home to a weak side but I feel like Ashley has finally pushed firmly down on the pillow and suffocated this club this season after a decade of holding it just above the club’s nose. 

 

The club has been utterly destroyed, we were a great football club, not necessarily on the pitch or in terms of trophies but we were a proper football club and there was a great connection between club and fan base even in the times we struggled which imo is rare in the modern game. 

 

Football is the highlight of many people’s weeks, I’m not ashamed to admit it can often be the highlight of mine. He’s ripped that from us, I can no longer say it can ever be that to me we’re tragic, utterly tragic. For 10 years we’ve depended on some rough diamond we picked up for cheap turning into a player, then when they do we’ve essentially depended on them to carry the whole team as opposed to building anything around them. I don’t even enjoy watching us anymore, watching players as devoid of any talent such as Joselu plod around the pitch just isn’t football.

 

There’s no passion surrounding the club, no buzz, no excitement, and there hasn’t been since the first year he bought us, before he decided to drive the club into its first calamities by attempting to disgrace club legends. 

 

I used to love watching football, but honestly my whole passion for it has subsided. I don’t even bother watching Champions League games or keeping track of most scores. I quite regularly have no idea of the placing of other PL sides, as what’s the point? We’re going to be struggling to keep our heads above water like the little, irrelevant, tin pot club we have become.  

 

My whole feeling was summed up this week, I was listening to a podcast and when they were discussing Man Utds comeback win against us one of the pundits said “yeah but I mean it was only Newcastle” it wasn’t an attempted dig, it was just the truth and I took no offense or exception to it, the bloke was spot on. That’s exactly what we are, a club that every team in the league will see as a winnable game. If you told me all this 10 years ago I’d feel sick to my stomach but now I just don’t care, he’s sucked any soul or passion out of Newcastle United Football Club. 

 

As Alex said in another thread, what is this all for? What on Earth is the purpose? If it was money he could quite easily make far more elsewhere, if it was advertising he could have spent all he’s invested on far higher profile advertising. I think overall it’s been negative to his company, clearly his image, and obviously the football club. 

 

It’ll be a shame to see Rafa Benitez go, his reign has once and for all proven Ashley will never care about the club, if ever he was going to invest it would be when he had a world class manager at the helm. Instead yet another legend of football has been embarrassed, degraded, and pushed out in an insulting and disgraceful way. That’s Newcastle United. 

 

To long didnt read: Fuck this fat cunt.

But aye, there’s no part of Howay’s post that you can argue with it. The most impressive part of Ashley’s utter negligence is that it seems to have kicked the life out of Rafa Benitez. This is a man who breathes football, spends all his moments thinking about it and he’s reduced to picking the best of the shit and hoping it comes good. Fuck off, Ashley. You’ve killed that blokes spirit so it’s no surprise that everyone else has followed

You know, I have read all the posts slagging Ashley and for the most part I agree and second all of them. However, I can lay no blame on Ashley for our loss against Brighton. We were the better team on the pitch by far, and should have won easily had we scored 2 of the 27 shots we took. Not having a real striker is one good reason for our lack of scoring but,  we do have players capable of scoring but they are not doing it when the opportunities are put in front of them.

The fact that Kenedy missed the penalty against Cardiff and cost us dearly, had nothing to do with Mike Ashley's way of doing things, and that could be said of all the sitters missed, and there's been quite a few.

Is there apathy? I see a lot of fans showing restraint out of loyalty to the team and manager, when Benitez leaves there's going to be a spectacular reaction imo. 

Well it’s anecdotal but I’m apathetic, might be because I’ve not lived in the north east during Ashley’s ownership and hardly attended games since I left but losing/winning used to have an effect on my weekend. Kind of glad it doesn’t anymore

Aye, it’s no fault of the owner that we lack quality in the final third

Alex, are you saying Kenedy lacks quality, and him missing that penalty was the owners fault?

 

I’d suggest, if we are going down the road of playing some pathetic blame game, that missing from 12 yards when a highly skilled professional paid 10s of thousands a week is taking the pen then its down to the player and the player alone. A more pertinent question to ask may be is why have we got a fuckin Chelsea reserve taking it in the first place?

It’s not just about the penalty, it’s about the reason we were relying on a last minute penalty, about why we didn’t have the quality to hold out against Man United, it’s about why the standard of players on the pitch yesterday weren’t good enough to beat a side with a woeful away record.

For all that we can blame Mike Ashley.

He deliberately starved the club of funds we clearly needed this summer. It wasn’t a case of refusing to put his own money in. He did it in order to hobble Benitez and it has worked. The results are playing out in front of our eyes.
