The Sky microphone picks up the cry of pain as soon as Haidara’s knee is smashed into. Disgusting. Perhaps even worse is the hero treatment afforded to the little thug as he leaves the pitch. A standing ovation from their fans and firm handshakes all round from his manager and the other clown stood next to him.

Well done Pardew and Ashley. Any idiot could have seen the improvements we needed to make in the summer.
No doubt they bid the lowest amount they could and after finally getting the nod they then followed up their lowest bid with an equally low contract offer. What exactly are these clowns playing at?
People say that you find out about people when the chips are down but I think we have found out a lot more about our owner and his mates when the chips were up. Worrying times lie ahead I reckon.
So just be honest with the fans, Ashley and co. We are never going to spend even to the point of breaking even; players will always be sold so we are going to need to develop a system to cope with that.
Our relegation seasons in the 70s and 80s often followed a ‘successful’ season. This year is no different. We have had more games to play and less players to play them. It makes me wonder if Ashley and co have different eyes to the rest of us.
