This Sunday Newcastle United will play Spurs in a Premier League game. It comes off the back of five defeats (with only one goal to Newcastle’s name and barely looking like scoring more). It comes off the back of a poor season, on the back of a poor season. It comes with despondency and desperation. It comes on the back of heart and soul being slowly withered.
Sick, tired and disillusioned there have been calls to boycott the game; to protest outside instead. This is part of a call for the owner, Mike Ashley, to sell to someone who actually cares. It is a difficult thing to see making a difference and, in the end, also a difficult thing to support.
