If you wanted to see just what Newcastle United fans are up against in some sections of the media, look no further than Daniel Harris’ below the belt dig in The Guardian today.
In a shameful attempt to mock NUFC fans pushing for answers from the Premier League and a better future for our deprived region and beloved football club, Harris has shown his true colours.
Following our reported interest in Bournemouth duo Josh King and David Brooks and the takeover events of the past week, here’s what he’s written in what can only be described as a disgraceful piece of ‘journalism’:
Incredible patronising and absolutely pathetic.
Considering most national reporters are paid to give an unbiased view of events, there is quite clearly an agenda here based on the disgraceful lack of respect he shows both Newcastle fans and the very thing we’re actually fighting for here.
We are not championing the human rights record in Saudi Arabia here – and he knows that – we are wanting answers from the Premier League as to why they are happy to not only ignore us (after a fourth month wait) and deny our region, not just our football club, the investment it so badly needs during these difficult times.
Maybe Josh King and David Brooks will receive better offers this summer, but to make fun of the efforts we’ve been making as a fanbase and belittle the seriousness of what we’re fighting for here is way below the belt.
