Journalist George Caulkin has been speaking about the current feeling inside Newcastle United under the new owners on the Pod on the Tyne podcast.

It has been a whirlwind couple of months for Newcastle and their new owners, with a new manager coming in, a director of football and CEO search still ongoing and also the small matters of a relegation fight and the January transfer window to negotiate.

However, while a lot of this has been playing out in the public via media outlets, the club have been doing a lot to ensure that since Mike Ashley is gone, the feeling in the club and the dressing room remains positive and one of hope that the future. This was well reported by The Athletic, which has documented the first 100 days of PIF’s ownership.

Caulkin has been speaking about what the feeling is like at the club, despite the Toon’s safety hopes getting smaller every day.

He said: “I think they’ve got a lot of things right off the pitch in terms of tone and messages and things like that.

“Just to give some sort of background, we spoke to people at the very, very top of the club, we spoke to people inside the dressing room, we also spoke to people who work for the club, and there is still this really positive feeling.

“Certainly, in the Mike Ashley years, the feeling around the place was that nothing would ever change and that nothing would ever get better. Everybody now knows that it is going to get better.”

TIF Thoughts on Newcastle United’s situation…

Considering how dire the situation was at Newcastle under Ashley, it’s no surprise that small things such as the cleaning of windows at St. James’ Park and sending out a New Year’s message got a lot of fans happy.

It will also be very refreshing for fans to see their club going after ambitious transfer targets such as Sven Botman, Duvan Zapata and Diego Carlos, as it shows the owners are here for the long haul rather than a quick fix to make some money off the club, therefore, if the Magpies were to go down, they would likely still be in a better place than they ever were under Ashley.
