Who`s to blame? Ashley & Co

Who`s to blame? Ashley & Co

Having considered the players and Joe Kinnear`s contribution to yesterday`s downfall, the main culprit still has to be covered.

Ashley`s management of the club and its infrastructure is ultimately the final and most prominent reason why we failed.

Keegan would not have lost that game with the squad Kinnear had. He knows the derby and knows how to motivate the players. However he left as he didn`t believe the squad that Wise and Jiminez were assembling could be coached in his way and they were signing players not good enough for the EPL.

Gonzalez and Xisco - where the hell were they? Coloccini - not good enough yesterday, neither was Bassong. All part of the sh*te Wise and Jiminez were assembling with their raft of 'World Class` South American contacts. No left back or creative midfielder signed - f*cking hell it showed yesterday.

Ashley`s persistence in the continental style structure comes as the other Premier League club who adopted it bit the bullet and dismantled it for Harry Redknapp, following signing a raft of unsuitable players and making their worst ever start to the season. FAT MIKE - IT WON`T WORK IN ENGLAND!

Overall the continental structure, the soap opera caused by it and the axing of Keegan is without a doubt the root cause of the loss of our 28 year unbeaten record on Wearside.
