The Mike Ashley era has taught us many things and one of the biggest lessons the more clued up section of our support have learned is that Alan Pardew isn't here on his managerial ability.
The only thing we haven't worked out is where the puppet strings are hidden although many suggestions wont be far off.
As I said, Pardew isn't here on managerial skills but his way in which he can spin exactly what Ashley wants to be fabricated through lie after lie.
The fact that Ashley's sporting merchandise store has seen it's profits soar whilst our football club has stood still or went backwards the proof amongst the pudding of deceit.
The latest attempt by Ashley PR incorporated is for Alan Pardew to come out on the day of the fixtures being released and spin the usual yarn that it's hard to get players. Especially during the world cup he says.
Absolute sh*te is my answer to that.
As Joey Barton once said about the regime, 'If you pay peanuts........'
The club has had tens if not hundreds of millions of pounds accessible to it, the most cash EVER known to man and we're still having our expectation level fabricatingly thrown at us by sniffing around the pound stores or charity shops for freebies.
Attempts to make the club look like it's being careful in the market shouldn't be printed in the media because they are as much to blame as the facts are there as to our windfall for being in this league.
An extra £32 million or so we received on top of previous years cash for nowt would easily get a world class striker or 2, that's just for starters. Add the cash pot that should have accumulated under Ashley and we're starting to get somewhere like a challenging side.
The truth is known to many but the excuses will wash the thought train away for another year.
