A few more comments from Staveley from Mr. Caulkin’s article (see below).
“I’ve talked a lot about building blocks, but the club really needs a huge amount of investment in every area, be it medical staff, the women’s teams, the academy – my god! I want people to look at us and say, ‘Newcastle has the ability to challenge for the top’, because that’s what the fans deserve. We haven’t won any trophies and that desire is there, but the most important thing is building and that takes time and patience. But yes, we can get there. We have big ambitions.”
