From the dressing room, coaching staff up to the director and owner, it seems that this season is the most enjoyable one for everyone, including us the loyal Toon Army surely.
We have read one by one the member of Newcastle United’s Dressing Room told the media about how the Toon situation was finally being restored. The latest one is Charles N’Zogbia talking about the future of Newcastle United is a regular Champions League participant.
He believes that Newcastle long-long sleep is about to waken up. With Sam Allardyce in command and the magnificent support by the new chairman and owner, the ambition for top four this season is in our reach.
The new chairman Chris Mort also delighted by the Toon unbeaten achievement in the last four Premier League games and in Carling Cup.
“Everything is going well and we are still working hard at the club,” said Mr Mort.
“The transfer window was a busy period and we spent time focusing on getting the squad right. But we are delighted with the signings we brought in, and We are now focusing on making sure the squad is kept in good shape.”
This season we have nine new additions to the current squad with the likes of Mark Viduka, Joey Barton, Geremi, Rozehnal, Caçapa, Alan Smith, Jose Enrique, Abdoulaye Faye and Habib Beye.
We have seen five of them have been showing that they are deserved to wear the Black-and-White shirt. Geremi’s achievement was also spectacular as he is going straight into the club regular team and become the new skipper.
The rests of the new boys will have their time coming for the first Premiership debut. Enrique has tasted the English type of game in Carling Cup game as he warmed up his foot into the real battle at the Premier League match.
Joey Barton will be back from injury very soon, and his addition to the squad will added more depth in midfield. In my prediction, we will see a combination of David Batty and Robert Lee.
Meanwhile, at the very top of all, the new owner Mike Ashley is also showing his passion to the club. He has surprising many Toon Army by attending to Newcastle United games wearing a Toon jersey.
Chris Mort says that Ashley is loving every minute of life as a Toon fan, having sported his black and white colours and cheered on the Magpies in recent games.
“He asked me to run the club but he just wants to support the club, which he is thoroughly enjoying doing.” Mort said.
Well, I’m also enjoying the new revolution. The feeling was so high at the moment, and the expectation also high for this season. But, we have to still keep our feet on the ground and flying high when we have the chance to but then back in the nest to prepare for the next fly.
St. James’ Park is back on it’s Fortress status this year, and once again we can say it out loud This is Really Wor Year!!!
