Having first heard of Paul Kemsley in the wake of the Jol sacking at Spurs and amid rumours of Ashley taking over the club, it`s that man who has come out in defence of Mike Ashley, backing the owner in bringing in his own man he can trust:
'People have got realise that Sam Allardyce was not Mike's choice, Mike bought the club with him already employed. Mike took the view that he is in the job, let's see if he can deliver what I want, which is good-quality, attacking football and to win games. I'll give him time to see if he can deliver that.
Mike has put ú250million into the club and is about to invest more, no doubt, in the window, and I suspect he wants to invest that in his own man and his own team. Mike's a very considered guy. It (running Newcastle) is certainly costing a lot more initially than he thought it would. He, along with everybody else at Newcastle, wants to see good-quality football, they want to win, and he's a winner.
It's a difficult decision whenever you get rid of a manager and there are always a thousand opinions. But he thought about it and decided it was in the best interests of the football club. I know Mike well enough to know that he doesn't make decisions rashly.He will know where he's going, he will stick to his plans and deliver what he believes will please the Newcastle fans.If you give him time, he will deliver exactly what the Newcastle fans want. I'm sure he's got a plan.'
