Micky Quinn ripped into Newcastle United for five reasons before joking that fans will need to form an orderly queue in order to renew their season tickets.

The former Magpies forward listed five reasons why Newcastle supporters should be unhappy with their club; as he highlighted there was no Rafa Benitez, no new manager, no takeover at the moment, no signings and no Ayoze Perez.

Quinn then sarcastically stated that Newcastle fans can start to form an orderly queue to renew their season tickets, which was his way of saying there probably won’t be many Magpies fans rushing to St James Park as it stands.

“Let me get this right fans No Rafa No New Manager No Takeover atm No New Players No Pérez (Cashley 30mill better off) And only 39 days till the new Season kicks off Form an orderly queue to renew your Season Tickets,” wrote Quinn via his personal Twitter account.

OPINION

Quinn is spot-on with his list of reasons to be unhappy with Newcastle right now, and he sums up the mood perfectly. While Newcastle has one of the most passionate fanbases in football, even the most die-hard fans are probably second-guessing about renewing their season ticket, due to the state their club looks in. With no manager appointed as of yet, it’s hard to know if the club are moving in any direction, let alone a positive one. However, the fact Ayoze Perez has completed his move to Leicester City, which the Foxes confirmed via their Twitter account on Thursday, that doesn’t sound like success is about to arrive at St James Park. The 25-year-old scored 12 goals in his 37 league appearances in his latest campaign for the Magpies and also contributed two assists. In fact, Perez finished the 2018/19 season as the Magpies’ top-scorer with 13 goals across all competition, one more than Salomon Rondon, and racked up a goal on average every 229 minutes (Source: BBC Sport). When you consider Rondon is no longer at St James Park as well as Perez, then the Magpies don’t look like having the firepower up front to be a threat in the Premier League in the upcoming season.
