A fan lays flowers as a tribute to Newcastle United supporters John Alder and Liam Sweeney who lost their lives in the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 disaster.
Newcastle boss Alan Pardew will embark upon the new season determined to repay owner Mike Ashley for backing him this summer.
– Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew
When I signed the new contract, Mike always knew there would be ups and downs for both of us.
He stood by me and this feels like an up time for me. He's armed me again, he's stood by me.
I can always give him an honesty of where we are and he listens - that's why so many players have entered the building. We needed them.
It's that kind of relationship you can only hope for as a Premier League manager, and I'm lucky enough to have it. I hope I can repay him this season.
