Realistic? Or pie in the sky?
Shola Ameobi urges Newcastle United to push for a Champions League place in coming seasons.

Shola has been talking positively about our chances of Champions League football in the coming seasons. He believes that’s what we should strive for and that, if we think positive and push on, we can indeed achieve that.

If you aren’t striving to get back to the top then why are you here?

As a player you want to play in the biggest competitions.

But you can strive to get back to it and strive to be better as a player and a club.
