There are a couple of things which clearly remind me of Newcastle. The first is the hotel we’re staying in, ‘The Castle’, which reminds me daily of the good times I had in Newcastle and of the ongoing kindness and positivity I received there from the fans, to which I will slightly digress. They appreciated the commitment we had when choosing to stay at Newcastle, and the efforts we made to continue being there, but unfortunately, as they say in England, ‘a leopard can’t change its spots’. A lot of things kept us attached to the club, to the city, and to its fans, but a lack of project as well as unfulfilled promises meant we had to look forwards and follow a different path, as others such as Alan Shearer and Kevin Keegan have done whilst continuing to be supported and to support the team. There’s nothing wrong with thinking about the past, but it’s also important to look to the future. For this reason, all I have left to say is that I truly wish the team and Steve Bruce the best for the following season.

he tried his best to talk some sense into them, unfortunately any talk of improving our chances of winning something, giving the fans a team to be proud of, competing with the top six, and merely showing a bit of ambition all fell on deaf ears, as usual.

My dear boy, some of us don't need all the information in front of us in order to know what goes on, most of us knew what benitez wanted, the fact he is now in China tells us the chuckle brothers had other ideas..... its called reading between the lines, give it a go.
