Intellectual in peace I sincerely trust this season finds you well. What I don't understand about Newcastle is how I used to point out methodically and politely what Newcastle were doing wrong and got ripped for it on 606. It was obvious to all that NUFC were going to do a Leeds United unless someone stepped in and sorted out the unsustainable debt that had been racked up by Kev Keegan in a desperate bid to satisfy the thirst for the sweet nectar of silverware of the NUFC fans, this is what MA did and I was a lone voice on the 606 Newcastle board supporting him at the time when everybody else was listening to, and being seduced by, KK's promises of signing Henry, Lampard & Beckham (and before you brand this 'a rumour I made up', Google it, it was all over the News of the World when it happened and I donât remember the notoriously litigious suing so it's obviously true.) I also said you should give the ball to your players out wide because you have Gutierrez there and he's better than Tiote and now you've listened and will begin to do well because of it. What I don't understand is why you seemed to completely abandon your previously stated commitment to finishing 17th last season and were saying we're doing well, obviously this will totally continue and we should qualify for Europe'. May I remind you that Blackpool started well, but were eventually relegated? Remember when Hull won their first few games and then ended up going down? I don't think you should get too carried away which is another thing that I said on 606. The desire to ascribe a whole seasonal narrative to a team based on the first few results also infected your opinions on Everton, who you described as 'relegation contenders' even though we've finished in the top 7 five years in a row? Please explain to me how that works, at the start of the campaign I predicted us to finish between 8th-10th and was pleasantly surprised when we finished 7th whereas NUFC âfansâ hoped for 17th last season, yet complained when you finished 12th. No doubt this year will âbe your yearâ to challenge for Champions league qualification based on the fact that you have had one decent result against a team in the Champions League.
