@NUFC. Fans don’t enjoy supporting Newcastle United anymore. We endure every day, every match, every news story.
Out of frustration, we fight with one other.
We look at each game. Not with confidence, with dread in that we will lose, AGAIN.
Any attempt at lifting the mood is met with disbelief and pessimism.
We’ve heard it all before.

To a real fan, the team is family, and ours is sick. We’re like alcoholics, miserable and stuck, addicted.
Ashley’s newest promise of dedication and commitment….?
He isn’t looking to sell. He does nothing to lift us, the fans.
It’s a terminal prognosis and a bleak outlook.
January investment? And worst of all, he isn’t looking to sell.
He does nothing to lift us. It’s a terminal prognosis and a bleak outlook.
Here is his Tweet.
