After we were relegated on May 24th, if someone had come in and tried to put Newcastle in the terrible state we find ourselves now, it’s hard to believe they could have done such a devastating job, as Mike Ashley has over these last 10 weeks.
Mike Ashley – is the nightmare to continue?
The club is only now beginning to sell players we just cannot afford, and we have had no manager in place at all this summer, and nobody has even started to think about how the squad should be strengthened.
No, Mike has outdone himself these last 10 weeks by making the biggest mess of a club we have seen for a long long time. Unfortunately that club is ours – Newcastle United.
And this guy is the owner, no less.
If Ashley doesn’t sell the Newcastle club very soon, then the very best we have in store for us as fans, is more of the same.
That means more incompetence, more of not talking to the fans or the players, and a complete lack of understanding of what it takes to run a football club.
And Mike it seems cannot look beyond Joe Kinnear as the manager, and he has had no intention at all of giving the job to a certain Alan Shearer.
After all, Alan may even clear the mess up, or at least try to.
If an announcement is made shortly that Mike will indeed keep the club for another year, then that will be the worst news possible for Newcastle United fans everywhere.
Heaven help us – somebody help us.
