This guy predicted it back in September. I hope for your clubs sake that what he is saying is right.
Also dug up some old posts by a guy called Martin T. He said he was disgusted at your fans behaviour to Mr Ashley back then. Seems that he may have had a point, the hostility Newcastle fans created had a detrimental affect on the team. One which even your messiah (how many do you have by the way) Shearer couldn't help you recover from.
Food for thought Newcastle fans - get behind Ashley or face becoming another Leeds United.
