'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Patience Is A Virtue - Talk Of The Tyne

I agree with Ginola and Hughton deserves a fair crack of the whip, but will it be the same old story with us, the fan's?

I respect Chris Hughton for the work he has done so far and returning to the big time was a bit of a surprise if I'm honest, I also think that us as fan;'s need to be equally as patient as the top level management at NUFC, we need to support Hughton and in a big way.

I don't like to say this, but I think Hughton will be out of his depth next season, his fault? No not really, he hasn't got the financial clout to help himself so he must rely on the team that he created, a team that gelled well and performed in the Championship, but is a bit lightweight in the Premier League.

Too often us fan's are quick to criticise players to, when cleary most, if not all are confidence players, look at Colo as an example, brilliant in an albeit lower standard last year, if he can continue his form we will be in a better situation than other Premier League campaigns.

Also, let's not be hasty and judge new signings, whilst we all sit and here the rumour that Andy O'Brian might return, remember, he has maintained a place in a Premier League team, when we got relegated.

I don't think old big nose is the solution, but what I would give to see that photo of his nose hitting the ball a few times, that made me laugh, seriously, let's not have delusions of grandeur any more, we are no better than anyone, perhaps our failing as fans over the years has been our expectation, we all want the best, but I would settle for staying put in the Premier League for a couple of seasons, indeed staying up would be classed as a success for Chris Hughton and Newcastle United.

Look forward, be patient and lets support them, Mike Ashley is a different matter, and despite what a Sunderland fan said to me in York (whilst I was mighty drunk) I don't think he's the man for the job...more on what the Mackem said later...surprised me though!
