Now that Mike Ashkey has had Steve McClaren and a few of his sidekicks sacked, he must go on and remove the imbecile Graham Carr.

Everyone knows he is a total failure and if Rafa is his own man, as seems to be the case, he is not going to take any notice of a pillock like Carr (pictured above to the left of Ashley) anyway.

With Rafa Benitez now appointed, I hope Mike Ashley sits down and realises that this season’s terrible predicament is because Charnley picked the wrong manager for our team.

He also left it far too late to change the manager and therefore is as guilty as McClaren of doing a bad job and should be sacked also.

My head tells me it is too late to save our Premier League place but my heart tells me that the appointment of the new manager just might re-energise the whole city.

Then with full and unequivocal  support from everyone who has an interest in our famous club, the Toon might just sneak it…and it would be extra special if it was at the expense of those of whom we do not speak.
