The memory of Newcastle United past is the only thing that keeps this hunger for a Newcastle United future.
Much has been written and much spin has been spun but there still to this day has been nothing truer than what a proper Geordie legend, Kevin Keegan, said nearly three years ago.
When a man buys a club like Mike Ashley did, and knows as little about football as he does, he is likely to make these sort of mistakes and these judgments and still think he is doing OK.
A lot of us have had the regime’s cards marked for a long time, some have boycotted, some haven’t.
It makes no difference.
In our own way, we do what we want and there is no shame either which way we choose. What matters is that the United group against the evil regime is growing, never to back down and ultimately to try to get this club back to what it once was.
We have no game plan, just a desire to have a blank canvas of ambition. An ambition that only asks that the players on the pitch give their all to the shirt and the club employees, the same to their paying public.
The memory of Newcastle United past is the only thing that keeps this hunger for a Newcastle United future. Once the older generation get too old or past the stage of caring, then we may yet see a giant take it’s last breath.
Hopefully we don’t get as far as hearing a final word of goodbye to a dream.
Without dreams, what’s the point?
