I was listening to Talksport driving home and the subject of Newcastle United came up.

They trash Rafa Benitez:

‘Oh I haven’t enough money…oh I don’t know what I am doing…have to make do with this very expensive squad…you should be walking the division…’

And so it went on and on and on – however, they don’t blame Mike Ashley.

Then we had Sky Sports covering the game on Wednesday, the commentary and endless Jonjo Shelvey slow motion repeats were awful.

The commentator was ecstatic at Ciaran Clark’s blunder.

Benitez seems to have been misled as to transfer dealings, or absolutely lied to by Ashley.

Not a surprise and there were clues before, that the goalposts had moved somewhat.

Add Sam Allardyce saying Andros Townsend was never leaving, he (Fat Sam) has a pathological hatred of us after we kicked him out.

Haters all.

They won’t make it easy for us and that includes Charnley and Ashley, who have no honour and undermine the Manager.

On our way to calm waters and Mike gets bored.

Newcastle United – just who would support a club like ours…?!!
