Once again Karren Brady has been commenting on the farcical situation at St. James’ Park.
Only two weeks ago the West Ham Vice-Chair had this to say about Mike Ashley:
“Owning a club is a business but, more than that, it is a responsibility to the community, fans and the game itself.
“Only Mike Ashley knows how many of those tests he thinks he passes.”
This weekend in her column in The Sun, Karren Brady has taken the opportunity to look at the farcical Fabricio Coloccini letter that has made the headlines over the last few days.
After seeing John Carver’s embarrassing press conference where he waved a piece of paper that he claimed to be the real deal (though he bizarrely added that this was the third draft…), Brady has joined the vast majority of Newcastle fans who don’t believe it is anything but a (backfiring) PR stunt orchestrated by the club.
Once again we have the other Premier League clubs surely shaking their heads at the numerous own goals that continue to happen at Newcastle United under Mike Ashley.
Some because of the owner’s cynical actions, whilst others simply through sheer incompetence.
“Rarely is it thought necessary for a club captain, in this case centre-back Fabricio Coloccini, to issue a letter apologising for the way the team have been playing, pleading with fans to unite behind them for the last three matches.
“I think someone at the top must have had a brainwave and whistled up the club captain to do it, and probably wrote it for him.”
