Why I’m Actually Looking Forward To Saturday Now

7 years ago

Astonished, amazed, disappointed, shocked, stunned, just some of the superlatives I felt when I woke up yesterday morning.

The reason being; Alan Pardew has not left the club, either by being fired or walking of his own accord, with a little bit of dignity intact.

Mike Ashley by all accounts is ruthless in his running of SD, awful “tomorrow morning after breakfast” contracts for the majority of staff, managers dismissed should their individual store not meet the profit targets set out!

So why would he continue to employ someone who is continually mismanaging a major part of his empire, a person who continues to make the headlines for the wrong reason.

Forget the length of contract and the compensation due should Pardew be sacked, the higher you finish in the premier league would adequately cope with that, IE. Replace him, finish higher up and his compensation will be covered by the prize money!

Let’s not forget the opportunity was there following his assault and head butt on Hull’s David Myler last season

I wonder does Pardew have some photos of a certain somebody in a compromising position…

Then we have John Carver, who apparently was an all round canny bloke, is that so?

Did he not have a bust up in public with Craig Bellamy a few years ago? Fact is, he is a failed pro footballer who got lucky in coaching. His disgraceful verbals with fans who invested a lot of time and money last Saturday should merit a sacking anyway, instead of aggressive verbals he should have said, “look please support the lads we are trying.”

What exactly does Steve Stone do?

Then we have Andy Woodman, the goalkeeping coach who seems intent on turning Tim Krul into Steve Hardwick or Roger Jones (ask your dad), mind he may have a hidden agenda given his son seems to be promising, a bit of advice son…..get away from dad!

Oh yeah Woodman senior has also had a fine for his touchline antics! There is a picture building here.

Peter Beardsley seems to be more involved with the juniors or reserves but it has to be said, even Forest Hall’s finest toes the party line when speaking in public.

I say get rid of em all, Peter Beardsley apart, keep Peter on the training pitch helping the youngsters stay enthused.

The rest can go ply their trade elsewhere, I can’t see an elsewhere existing in the premier league, but I hear hopscotch United of the Wheeltappers and Shunters Sunday league 5th division need help to put the nets up this weekend, it’s your level – accept it!

Just go you bunch of idiots, or stay and face the bear pit backlash this weekend, I don’t think the idiot PA Man will need to say, “make some noise” on Saturday!

There will be no hiding place for any of you no matter what the score, I hope you have the misconception that it is the minority who want rid of you all.

I am actually looking forward to Saturday now.
