Let’s Run Them Out Of Town

8 years ago

Having just spent most of Monday reading every word written by NUFC fans on different websites and social media platforms, I have had the misfortune of having to nip out and buy a new screen for my computer.

Season tickets being sent back, thrown away or not being renewed. Shirts being cut up or burnt. Alan Pardew’s inane and limp excuses, players apologising for letting us down and clubs still coming in for our players, all led to me punching a hole in it.

The selling of Cabaye was in itself a kick in the teeth for all fans, as news leaked that he`d had an agreement with the club, that he could go in January. I`ll take it this was put in place after the Arsenal bid and listening to what was said, there was a plan set up to replace him. Then as the transfer window drew to a close as I and no doubt countless others watched Sky`s deadline day fiasco with baited breath, diddley squat came out of the NUFC coffers, to do what they said they would.

Mr Ashley putting a bid in for another Frenchie , a smoke screen only, JFK spouting more rubbish than is on Manhattan Island and Alan Pardew conspicuous in his silence. Then just as we thought it was safe to get back in the water, the Tyne and Wear Derby comes less than 24 hours later. A game we should have been talking about for a couple of weeks at least. Alas it wasn`t to be.

Cabaye gone, Shola leading the line alone, an unfit De Jong, no Goufran, no Colo,, no Remy, a back four who couldn`t defend and a midfield who couldn’t pass or dribble. A manager who was taken to the tactical cleaners, by a second division manager, managing a second division team.

They have out-spent us now twice in two transfer markets and beaten us the last three derby games.

So my questions are;

1 What the hell is going on with the Manager?

2 What the hell is going on with the players?

3 Why do we insist on giving Mike Ashley money?

4 Why are we not doing more to rid ourselves of these diseased people?

With the press releases and spoutings of Mr Pardew regarding the clubs ambition ie At  least a top ten finish, no cup ambition and no European ambition, where do you think it has left the club and its fanbase?

It has left far too many people disillusioned with the manager and a hatred to all concerned with the running of the club and a fanbase who are being taken for a long ride and ridiculed, a laughing stock to every football fan in the country, not forgetting Sky sports, BT sports and our friends at Match of the day

In the bad old days of the cowboys they would be run out of town. I for one will not rest until they have been.
