Mehrdad Ghodoussi, Amanda Stavely and Jamie Reuben attend the majority of Newcastle matches home and away and get a taste of Champions League football within two years of the £305million takeover in October 2021.

Staveley missed The Magpies 1-0 win over Brentford at St James’ Park on Saturday with Ghodoussi and Reuben in attendance. Staveley had been in San Fransisco in the United States for work ahead of the Premier League fixture.
