It’s been quite a week for Newcastle fans, although probably not an enjoyable one.
First of all we had the big anti-climax and disappointment of only signing two players on the last day of the transfer window last Monday, and that was after we had sold James Milner to Aston Villa last Friday. That wasn’t too good.
Then on Tuesday morning, when we were wondering how we’d get through the season on such a small squad, the news broke that Kevin may have resigned or may have been sacked. Since then the club has issued two statements, and we should expect another one some time this morning from the club – to at least tell us some news on what is happening – since we have no idea.
We had a statement yesterday from the LMA, on Kevin’s behalf saying Kevin had not resigned, and basically after that, we’ve heard nothing much since. Of course the gossip papers are having a field day, but as we’ve said before, this is all at the expense of the Newcastle United Football Club.
This thing is starting to take an exorbitant amount of time to sort out, and we hate to bring this up, but Joey Barton meets with the FA Disciplinary committee tomorrow, and Kevin was going to accompany him to that meeting.
We hate to bring it up because that seems to be one of the points that Ashley and Kevin disagree on, and there were reports we even tried to sell Joey to Aston Villa last Monday.
When you look at what’s happened this week, it’s a little bit of a soap opera – but it’s just another week in the life of a Newcastle United fan. Let’s hope for some news, make that good news, this morning from the club.
Oh well – let’s keep hoping for the best – there’s not much else we can do.
