2015/16 Season Preview

Wind back the clock to 2:59pm, 24th May 2015. 52,094 fans sit on the edge of their seats hoping for the best but most expecting the worst. John Carver stands in the technical area and we all watch on with our hopes pinned on Williamson, Gutierrez and Riviere.

When you think back to your journey to St James Park that day or to you lucky spot on the couch or in your favourite spot in the pub you probably missed the Mike Ashley 'cart and horse' speech on Sky. Or even if you did see it you would't have believed a word of it!
