Mike Ashley is creature of habit and what he’s doing at Newcastle doesn’t surprise me

4 years ago

Mike Ashley is a ten year enigma, won’t talk and won’t explain himself .

A dictator with only one man one vote – he is the one man and really the fifty thousand fans can sing all they like, he doesn’t care.

Look, the evidence is there, he is a chancer and defending him…well you can’t.

This current situation now has his grubby prints all over it.

He is a chancer who chooses his words carefully but he is also a creature of habit, predictable, and what is happening now doesn’t suprise.

We have seen this all before, promised the world then nothing.

The odd thing about Cashley is his lack of vision further up the table and more wonga – but just staying up is the limit of his ambition.

He has no plans to sell and Newcastle United is his personal in-joke, a toy that pleases him and annoys everyone else.

Today (1 July 2017) sees Newcastle United pass into a new financial  year.

Mike Ashley is a toxic type, good at destroying things but not good at building for the future.

His way or no way. So what next?

Rafa Benitez gets itchy feet and does off away from mad Mike’s cold grasp?

No, he wouldn’t, would he? What would you do?

This is Newcastle United in nutty Mike’s world, nothing ruled out and the very improbable can and usually does happen…

I can’t see the first day of July bringing the signings, as Mike Ashley holds the purse strings.
