Newcastle United are back down to earth with a thud. As far as the coming season goes, what is there to talk about?
So far we’ve signed a third choice keeper, added a player that Burnley didn’t want and have re-signed Matty Longstaff – who was already our player but had been allowed to drift out of contract.
There’s talk of some other players coming in, but then there always is! And usually, most of it turns out to be just that – talk.
And as usual, the promoted teams, in particular Leeds United, will no doubt out-spend us when strengthening.
This podcast provides my personal feedback on the NUST meeting on 7th August 2020 and where I think we are in exerting pressure on the Premier League to end their stubborn silence and make a statement about the takeover of Newcastle United
This podcast reacts to the dithering by the English Premier League decision-makers...and contains a special message for them. Also discusses Newcastle United results & performances since footy resumed after the lockdown,
I suppose, like me, most people listening to this podcast are fed up to the back teeth with the waiting for the English Premier League (EPL) to get its finger out and complete its owners and directors test.
We were told the takeover was submitted to the EPL on 9th April and the thinking at the time, based on previous takeovers, was that it would take about 4 weeks to get a decision.
We're now approaching the end of the 9th week - and no decision yet. Very frustrating for fans, the owner and the bidders.....
utd111.co.uk Podcast: I'm old enough to have lived through the Sir John Hall/Kevin Keegan years so I know what it felt like then. Magic, pure magic. A great team, playing fab attacking footy - and the atmosphere amongst the fans? Aww man - what a rollercoaster ride that was!
And yet even that era might be shaded by what is to come. Here's hoping, because every single one of you great United fans out there will deserve every second of the rollercoaster ride that looks like it's about to happen. This time I reckon it's the big dipper!
Strap yourselves in boys and girls - it looks like we're off soon!
