Newcastle have only won just one Premier League game all season, culminating in Eddie Howe’s outfit being second from bottom in the standings.
On New Year’s Eve, Staveley released a lengthy statement via the club’s official website.
In it, she said that she can see a ‘a bright and, ultimately, successful future’ on Tyneside in spite of the ‘current challenges’ at the moment.
Communication of leadership to the fanbase was relatively unheard of during Ashley’s tenure at Newcastle.
And here’s how the supporters are reacting to Staveley’s message today:
The Big message
One supporter put it best: small gesture, big message.
That’s precisely what it is and, as the responses indicate, Newcastle supporters are overjoyed by the sentiment.
Despite being in a grim position in the table, there’s genuine optimism at the highest level and hopefully for the club’s sake, that feel-good sense will trickle down and positively affect the playing staff.Photo by Serena Taylor/Newcastle United via Getty Images
