West Brom boss Tony Pulis has suggested that Newcastle United fans just want to see a successful team.
West Brom boss Tony Pulis told the Chronicle what he feels is all that Newcastle United’s fans want to see from their team moving forward.
Pulis, who has occasionally been linked with the top job at St James’s Park, has praised the support base, suggesting all they want to see is the team doing well and the players enjoying success.
“It’s a wonderful club, a wonderful place to play and a wonderful stadium. The support is absolutely fantastic, all they want is a winning team,” he said.
“That’s the bottom line, they want to come and watch a team on Saturday that wins football matches. If you do that for them then great, but it’s the same everywhere.”
Newcastle supporters have been growing disillusioned with the club as a poor run of form has seen them slide down the table and into the group competing against relegation.
Fans can take any defeat or bad patch of form if they are getting effort from the players and transparency from the club’s officials in all forms.
The Magpies just need to do whatever is required of them to get over the line this season and then they can build over the summer.
Key decisions can be made over whether John Carver is the man to take them forward and where the squad needs to improve ahead of next season.
A little bit of ambition on the part of Mike Ashley can go a long way and show the fans that he means business and isn’t content to settle for a season based around just staying up.
