"And the fans, the atmosphere here is togetherness, the relationship, the players they care, the manager, the staff, working together trying to achieve what we want to achieve".

"The fans, they have ambitions, we have ambitions". This is something we've mentioned before on here and tomorrow for the final game of the season at home to Chelsea, "Wor Flags' latest display promises to be one of the biggest yet".
Ashley has echoed his previous support of the former Liverpool boss and his stance when it comes to investment.
Ashley meanwhile released a statement saying "every penny generated by the club" will be available to Benitez - having made similar comments a year previously. Gareth Southgate will name his England squad for the World Cup on May 16, and both he and Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles may feel they have an outside chance of being given a place on the plane to Russian Federation.
