Newcastle United proved the media wrong

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

Players - Showing no signs of instability and uncertainty

The following days after Newcastle's relegation from the Premier League, there wasn't much news. The media, were giving us a little time to remorse amongst ourselves until they got their chance to take constant digs at NUFC throughout the summer. We were used to new headlines in the papers each day of ‘Toon walkout’ or ‘Toon exodus’ but look at us now, we've barely missed any of our players that have left. Maybe Sebastien Bassong and Habib Beye but Nile Ranger and Andy Carroll are filling Obafemi Martins’ void nicely.

The funny thing is, Newcastle have performed brilliantly, up until yesterday in their search for an immediate return to the Premier League. We couldn't have asked for a better start to the Coca Cola Championship literally, not losing a game until yesterday, at the hands of Blackpool.

Besides the amount of rubbish that has been written about us, the constant rumours, an owner who couldn't talk, and 15 different consortia linked to buying us throughout summer, the lads have done really well. All you need to do is look at the CCC table and you'll see that.

We're still in the Carling Cup as well, an away tie with fellow league side Peterborough. Who knows, maybe we might get promoted and be back where we belong, within 365 days. Who would've thought this would be possible when the final whistle sounded at Villa Park that day?

Comments welcome 🙂
