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

Interesting Article on NUFC

An interesting article has popped up in The Independent newspaper, written by Martin Hardy.

At first sight it looks like a good interview. On further exploration, this reflects the quality of the excellent PR guru at the club. Wendy Taylor is charm personified, has gorgeous eyes and could melt the most hardened journalist, even if not the old hacks on ToTT.

It is the sort of story that the club wants us to hear, that we are victims of our own success by qualifying for Europe early. There is an aura of honesty but a hint of wanting to fill the ground, sorry that should be a hint of hope that some of the huge transfer surplus might be spent, down to Mike's generosity, in the January window.

A less compliant journalist might have put one of those sentences differently; 'The players are still playing for a manager that most of them like.'

Are the players still playing? Most is more than half, what do the rest think of him and why?

It's a good job that ToTT don't write for the national media, from Ashley's perspective anyway.

As you say Rex, it's good we don't write nationally but then again, this place has potential... it's not like we didn't warn what would happen. Oh wait. http://www.newcastle.vitalfootball.co.uk/article.asp?a=276153

A good point, Mark. When they did what we asked, we qualified for Europe: http://www.newcastle.vitalfootball.co.uk/article.asp?a=256419 When they ignored our January email petitioning, they got relegated.

A very good article that building bridges one I may add. Just touching on it, it was if the club listened and we've always said that a club that listens to it's fans is a club that's going places. Too long have we had a silent owner and too long an MD or chairman who follows suit. Surely now would be a great time to spur everyone on and let us in on the secret of the 5 year plan.
