'If It's Football, It's Vital'

'Ill Informed' Fans A Problem At NUFC

We all have our angle on what the story is at St James' Park with a fair few of us now, adamant that we know for certain that Mike Ashley is here to benefit his sports business in any which way he can.

The list of misdemeanours against our club's name just growing by the week.

Against the backdrop of all this, we have various writers or 'bloggers', as some are known now, pedaling their angle of the club which doesn't help because their 'followers' take it as gospel and just confuse matters further by ignoring the facts we have around us.

A fact list that is so long now that I wont mention them all here today but to remind those that have forgotten, amongst the evil doing we've had:

Relegation.

The humiliation of Alan Shearer and Kevin Keegan, two club legends.

The 'in limbo' scenario we encountered after the ignoral of Shearer, which was then ended by Chris Hughton picking up the manager's jacket and then sacked after doing wonders for no apparent reason.

The continued sale of our best players and lack of investment in a squad.

The complete disregard for the fans, the club and the city by proven liars in a court of law.

The fact that we're bottom of the Premier League in team investment and have been since day one of the Ashley tenure.

The re-naming of our world famous ground to advertise his own brand.

The lowering and degrading nature in which the club name is continually associated with morally dubious sponsors.

The insistance to still cover the ground in a sponsor name that loses the club tens of millions of pounds a year in commercial revenue whilst increasing the profits of the brand in question.

The admittance that cup competitions and European qualification will be sacrificed to make sure we survive in the premier league against the hopes and dreams of every supporter.

The continuation of offensive insults and threats from Ashley appointed employees towards fans.

Not forgetting, the whole sorry saga that was, Joe Kinnear, and his return to the club.



Meanwhile, against this back drop, we get words from no one but club stooge Alan Pardew, who's hot air paints a picture that is different to those that can see or those with an average (and above) mentality.

Does Pardew believe what comes out of his own mouth?

It's an honest question.

At the tip of every disaster or embarrassing defeat, we get his Cheshire cat grin down-playing the importance of what we have seen before us with his book of football cliches then being used to the max, only then being believed by a charva like persona of fans or those that are utterly clueless as to what football is about or it's main ambition.

None of which we get under this regime, so why the support?

Do we have a nucleus of supporters that are brain dead or not able to comprehend what lies, deceit and penny pinching we have laid out in front of them?

Has Sky created a fan of the financial spreadsheet and if so, what personal pride can that instill in a person?

The way in which we are run under Ashley and his cronies has killed the club as we knew it, slowly being replaced in a World War Z effect.

The normal passionate and ambitious every day supporter, slowly being replaced by those unable to think for themselves. The fan that follows like sheep and comes across like a zombie.

The regime are a cancer that can be cured if we're all in it together but with so many 'experts' talking out of their back end, it's a war that can't even be attempted when there's so many battles to be won.

It's time for those zombified 'fans' to give themselves a shake.

I'm in that picture of the crowd, but I haven't been to a game in three years, and I don't recognise any of the people around me.

It's not a recent picture OL and nowhere do I state that my opinion is based on that picture of fans.
