Sunday's 1-2 loss to Liverpool marked the merciful end to the 2013-14 Premier League season, and thus the beginning of perhaps the least anticipated offseason for Newcastle United since they were relegated five years ago.
This week, we at Coming Home Newcastle will be looking back at the season that was. On Tuesday, Jim McMeachin will be looking back at our preseason predictions. Wednesday sees the return of our traditional roundtable discussion, and Friday will feature evaluations of each player's performance this last season. We'll also probably have another surprise or two along the way.
It's all a part our coverage strategy this summer. The offseason can be long and full of terrors, but we hope to have some fun and stay focused by introducing a new theme each week. We hope that this format will help all of us stay engaged in the comments section and in the FanPosts. Another new thing we'll be doing is posting a new article each day at a consistent time. This is something I've been wanting us to do for a while now, and the transition from season to off-season is a good excuse for us to commit to this new way of life at CHN. Every day, there will be a new links post, news article, or analysis piece at 2 pm BST (that's 6/7/8/9 in the morning in the continental United States).
As long as we're setting plans for the summer, don't forget to stop by for Championship play-off game threads (and the Conference Premier play-off final featuring Gateshead on 18 May), as well as World Cup match threads and, of course, preseason threads. There will be plenty of football to get us through all of this non-football, and we'll be with you every step of the way.
For now, let's enjoy (or not enjoy) Season Review Week. The season is over, and some stuff happened. Let's talk about it!
