It seems to us almost unbelievable, that the owner of Newcastle United Football Club has taken the decision to go against the wishes of the Newcastle fans, The Newcastle players, and the Newcastle City Council, and allow Kevin Keegan to leave the club.
Mike Ashley – will hardly be welcome much longer in Newcastle
This is not a bright decision, and Mike couldn’t have made his billions with dumb decisions like this. But it may prove he’s stubborn when it comes to business, but his days now have to be numbered at Newcastle, and it seems like the fans will urge Mike to sell the club, as one ploy to get him out.
Maybe Kevin can bide his time while the club is bought by somebody else, and then he can be reinstated as manager, but that’s just dreaming, and it’s not likely to happen.
We think Kevin must be so fed up with football today, which is being run by billionaires, who often know absolutely nothing about the game, that he’s had enough.
At least Mike Ashley is English and not an American owner, so at least he knows a little about the most popular game on the planet.
Americans generally dislike the game immensely, although it is gaining a little popularity with David Beckham, but we don’t think the owners of Man United, Liverpool or Aston Villa know the game very well.
We don’t know what will happen now, but we wouldn’t be surprised if we have demonstrations again by the Newcastle fans, and even some word from the Newcastle City Council.
But it seems to us this situation is just untenable, that a bunch of London based businessmen come in, and are wrecking this club, which make no mistake, that’s exactly what they are doing.
