Once again Sky Sports have gone past even their own simpering standards by spending this Sunday afternoon pandering to our former Director of Football Dennis Wise.
Despite being found culpable in the arbritration panel that took place this week, Wise basically passed the buck on Keegan and let out some interesting future revelations about the likelihood of Barry Moat's takeover.
With Hairy Hands Keys effectively kissing his arse, Wise confirmed:
'There was an offer put in by Mike I believe, and it was probably more than what Kevin got.....to settle it, yes....for more than the two million, yes. Mike was worried....when someone is suing you for £26m...'
On the Nacho Gonzalez signing, Wise added:
'The long-term idea of the relationship [with the agents] was we were going to get first option on the best South American kids. That was important to Newcastle.
Mike knew everything about it. He was fine with it. Every deal that went through the football club he knew. It's his money and no one else's. It was all done the right way.'
Given the successes of Gonzalez, Coloccini and Gutierrez and previously Gavilan, Bassedas and Cordone that would have been a great move.
Finally on Mike Ashley's next move at SJP, the boss-eyed gimp said:
'I think he will hold onto the club until they are promoted. I think they'll go up this year, I genuinely hope they do, then Mike will take a decision next summer.'
So no hope for Bazza. As for Sky, our contempt for them grows by the day, with the likes of Keys and David Craig willing to cosy up with the current encumbents for exclusives.
