Rob Elliot Says The ‘Best’ He Has Seen The Club Was The Day They Were Relegated

As reported by the Chronicle, Rob Elliot has said that the ‘best’ he has ever seen Newcastle United,  is the day that relegation  has been confirmed.

Speaking to The Irish Times, Elliot said:  “If you needed a game to convince a manager, it was the Tottenham game [on the final day of the season], it showed what the club could be,”

“The best I’ve ever seen this club was the day we got relegated.

“The mentality of the group changed. It became more collective.

“Maybe players had come to do well at Newcastle in order to move on.

“No disrespect to them, but as a club Newcastle United shouldn’t accept that.

“We should be the pinnacle.”

Elliot then went on to explain how the mood at the club has changed since Rafa took over, adding: “It felt like the end, (After defeat to Bournemouth)”

“The fans had lost patience with us, the manager and the club. The whole thing had turned sour.

“Then we heard about Rafa  and we thought: ‘This can’t be right!’

“We met him here in the canteen, talking like school kids.

“It was almost like the club changed instantly. The fans changed. We went to Leicester in his first game and did well.

“Then we drew with Sunderland. That was my last Newcastle game.”
