Glenn Roeder was sacked in May of last year, and since then he has been replaced by Sam Allardyce and then Sam was replaced by Kevin Keegan, two big names in football, with the latter already being a legend not only on Tyneside, but in Liverpool and around the world.
Mike Ashley – dragging Newcastle United through gutter by incompetence
But now with Kevin Keegan resigning last night, we’ll now presumably have to appoint our fourth manager in a very short 15 months, and it will be the third manager since Mike Ashley arrived at the club.
One of things Mike Ashley and Chris Mort had said when they arrived on Tynesdie last summer, was Newcastle needed stability and needed to get away from managers being replaced every year or so.
And we remember also in February that Chris Mort, speaking on the new recruitment organization he has just put in place that Kevin Keegan had the final say on all players, and therefore there would be no problems, and certainly no conflict with the newly formed Recruitment Team, led, of all people, by Dennis Wise.
We are mentioning this today, because that’s what happened and that’s some of things they said, and subsequent events have shown we cannot take Ashley, or his new management, at their word.
Indeed they have brought shame on the proud name of the Newcastle United Football Club.
We need to hear from Ashley, or one of his cronies, a full explanation for how incompetently they have run the Newcastle United Football club since they took it over last summer, and exactly what has been going on in the negotiations with Kevin Keegan over these last several days.
We are waiting for Mike Ashley to address his customers, the many many fans of Newcastle United, spread all over the world, who today have been left in complete disarray and disillusionment, with the events of this week.
