The Newcastle United Game Of Thrones
Under the House of Hall and Fletcher, the Kingdom of Newcastle played the Game of Thrones, the aim was to sit on the throne as the top house in England.
However, much gold was spent by the house on warriors that did not have the fight for the Title. Our leaders spoke “that we had watched the champions” and that they “would love it if we beat them”.
In 2007 Newcastle owed many debts and the kingdom was sold to the Southern Lord Ashley; however, in a cloak and dagger scenario, it appears that Newcastle was sold to the House of Sports Direct.
Unbeknown to the subjects of the kingdom, and they would be subjected, Lord Ashley had not came to play the Game of Thrones, but to enrich his House of Sports Direct by sitting on the Kings Council.
Sitting on the Kings Council gave Lord Ashley the opportunity to play The Game of Transfers. Warriors would cross the dark sea in wooden horses, to joust at the colosseum of St James’, and Ashley would use their success to sell them to rich houses both foreign and domestic.
As with all games, Lord Ashley would have some winners, selling squire Carroll for £35 million gold pieces, knowing he was worth less than half of this. There would be failure on punts that he had taken on squires Marveaux and Obertan, who never lived up to their top billing.
Moving into Season 8 of the Game of Transfers, Lord Ashley has many talents who are not at the top of their value, there is no obvious sale to boost his coffers.
Has Lord Ashley sold shares in the House of Sports Direct to buy a Kingdom on the North of the wall? Will he sell the Kingdom of Newcastle, where the subjects are restless and mutiny is on the cards?
Will Newcastle make a return to the Game of Thrones?
