Newcastle United have embarked on a new era following their takeover – and positive steps keep coming from PIF and their associated partners.

Mike Ashley has gone and Newcastle can look forward to a bright new era, even if avoiding relegation is the first target.

Amanda Staveley and Mehrdad Ghodoussi appear to be running the ship on a daily basis, making decisions that Newcastle fans love.

For instance, Staveley and Ghodoussi made a huge donation to help a Newcastle food bank earlier this week.

That kind of connection with Magpies fans is vital – and another positive decision has emerged.

An image has emerged on Twitter showing building work at St James’ Park.

The reason for that building work is that a new fitness studio is allegedly being built next to Newcastle’s changing room.

It may also be used to separate players and staff for COVID protocols – another benefit.

Newcastle players will now have a valuable facility on match days, something more befitting of a top club.

Newcastle fans love what they’re seeing, suggesting that Ashley would have never committed to something like this.

Some think it’s ‘brilliant’ that the new owners are taking these steps, believing the small things are a real boost.
