Sticking it to Whelan

Sticking it to Whelan

In amongst all the talk about the takeover, one fact Vital Newcastle learned that already endears the man to us is the amusing story of him harpooning Wigan chairman Dave Whelan. Whelan has never been our favourite character, being some jumped up gypo from the M62 who thinks he can mix it in the big leagues after being the big man in a sport where weekend attendances probably run to 50,000 in total. Since the Latics were promoted, the gobsh*te has had something to say on everything and anything, from Tevez to salary caps, and quite frankly gets right on our tits.

However Big Dave isn`t so white and white after all. Whelan`s JJB outfit was found guilty of price fixing over Premier League replica shirts and fined £7m after Ashley supposedly grassed him up. Whelan reportedly told Ashley that "there`s a club up north and you`re not part of it". So Ashley played whistleblower and landed him with a hefty fine from the OFT. Champion.

Whelan is a total cock. He needs his head kicking in.
