‘It was shortly after my last meaningful title bid in 2009 that I started to lose my faith. The 2010 season was awful. Xabi Alonso had been sold to Real Madrid, Rafa Benitez’s team was unraveling, and the club was braced for another period of reconstruction.

‘Reluctantly, I faced up to the disheartening conclusion a championship victory parade would never happen.    

‘It gives me the greatest pleasure to admit these words now look misjudged. In my defence, aside from the most optimistic fans judging with heart above head, no one took me to task for the remarks at the time.’
