The Abuse Of NUFC Has To End. Now!!

The Abuse Of NUFC Has To End. Now!!

Yes, we know the story of a businessman who rode to the rescue, saving a football club from doing a Leeds, Portsmouth or AFC Local Pub Team United. Blah de bleeping blah.

An investment of umpteen million by a man who has access to billions, on a colossal beast of a club with untapped potential to see it's stock rise ten fold minimum, if run the correct way.

It's no great surprise that the club in question is our very own Newcastle United and the businessman is Mike Ashley.

The story of his time here has been told many times before with a slight different spin depending on the mouthpiece spouting it.

The sour relationship between Ashley and the fans isn't one through choice, it's basically down to many strange decisions that the club has made, which in turn has got the defence mechanisms kicking in.

Ashley was welcomed as one of our own into the stands with no-one having a bad word to say about him until, as I say, the bad decisions started and to this day they continue.


What have we ever done to deserve this?

On top of all this, we find our club managed by a bloke who is clearly out of his depth. History and stats show Alan Pardew to be a failure at every club he's touched unless the Johnstones Paint Trophy is now classed as a major trophy.

Last year's 5th place finish was very lucky in so many ways but wasn't achieved with great acclaim from the fans because many of us foretold the signs of a clueless tactician.

This season has been brushed under the carpet by the regime (Ashley and Llambias) as an acceptable one because we finished last season so high as if to cancel each other out.

The excuses from Pardew mount up with the regime just sitting back hoping the fans soak it up and continue to back financially a lame horse, an animal that has no intention of winning the race but just turning up to collect appearance monies.

The most surprising thing of all is that someone so rich, so astute and so business savvy in Ashley, seems to think that be abusing or alienating the fans and allowing a clueless liar in Pardew to continue his 'job', that it's the be all and end all to making a mint.

It's not, hiring a proper manager on a proper wage may cost more than what the puppet is on but it will be reimbursed in more than money.

The business plan can then allow the same model to be used without the extra lies that alienate us further with today's Pardew spouting of 'We may have to sell a player' just increasing most people's desire to punch their TV or PC screen.

This scenario of abuse, lies and alienating can't continue as it will come to a head at some point, which seems daft because there's money to be made here.

The regime are too blind to see it.

Its not my choice however if I had the controlling vote I would take demotion to League 1 (straight past the Championship) in exchange for seeing Fatman and his c8ck sucking moron sidekick walk out of the club. The failure to recognise that NUFC could, relatively easily, achieve top four status with regular European campaigns is an indictment of their unsuitabilty to run a top flight football club. Get back to sports clothing/casino management and leave the real job to the experts.
