Isn’t Ashley Or Shepherd A Bit Like Deciding To Keep Shola Or Obertan?

8 years ago

Reading the site recently I saw there has been plenty of debate on Mike Ashley or Freddy Shepherd, which is like asking whether we should keep Shola or Obertan.

What next?

Drowning or being set on fire?

Relocate to Sunderland or Middlesbrough?

Put your hand in a lion or tiger’s mouth?

Choices choices choices.

Shola or Squidward?

Of course the only choice we can’t make is to go and support a different club.

Back to the reality of contemplating Ashley or Shepherd, we have seen both of them in action for any number of years so we can have no illusions as to what the two of them bring to the party.

In one word – misery.

It isn’t like either of them are just starting out and so can be given the benefit of the doubt. We’ve been subjected to seven years of Ashley and we had even longer with Shepherd doing his best to ruin the club.

Just like getting Shola and Squidward (plus the other rubbish we have piled high) out of NUFC ASAP, we have to see Newcastle having a future one day that doesn’t involve having manipulative selfish individuals like these pulling the strings.

Those in charge lifting fortunes and/or associated benefits out of the club only leads to failure on and off the pitch.

When will the day come when our club is run in a fit and proper manner is a question none of us can answer, for the sanity of us all though we have to believe that it will happen and keep believing.
