It's basically another year wasted, an absolute nothing season.

I appreciate that we were punching above our tradtional weight at the time, but as a 1986 lad getting into football around 93/94, that was all I knew, and Newcastle seemed a genuine power. Crazy to think my first 13 years of football (1993/4-2007) consisted of:

- 2nd, 2nd, 3rd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th finishes
- 2 FA Cup finals, and a further 2 semi finals
- Europe most seasons, beating Juve and Barca, first team to lose 3 CL group games and still qualify, UEFA semi final
- Smashed world transfer record to sign one of the best strikers in the world, plus other (less successful) statement signings like Kluivert and Owen - the latter when we were generally more midtable - although there was a sense that we underacheived then, now 13th is 'absolutely tremendous'
- Signed other very promising, highly touted, young players like Viana, Dyer, Bellamy, Jenas - those type of players wouldn't look twice now
- Regularly beat teams by 3+ goals, including that 5-0, and a 7-1 over (an admittedly not as good) Spurs
- Many other things you could easily add like rich lists etc.

2007-2020:
One top 6 finish, one season in Europe
Multiple relegations, and further near misses
Bottom 4 or 5 budget, and a largely s**** squad
Moves to Wolves, Leicester etc. an obvious step up for the few better players we have

I do feel sorry for those 20 and under because this is all they'll know, but I actually do think it's worse for us 30-35 year olds, who although have better memories, also have first hand experience of a club pretty much at it's peak, to one literally making up the numbers, doing absolutely nothing.

We desperately need this takeover.

Game of the season: Bournemouth (a)
Player who has deteriorated the most: Schär
One word to describe the season as a whole: Irrelevant
