My Newcastle United articles to date have, I hope, been objective and submitted in an attitude of realism.
This has been forced on me by events over the past ten years ,which have changed me from an optimistic dreamer running that long anticipated FA cup win over in my head, while lying in the bath.
My last article was a preparation at the beginning of a transfer window, which I envisaged as being the usual let down, as our owner again demonstrates yet again he tells lies.
Even I was surprised he managed to achieve this in a Sky interview, which had slightly fewer u turns than a Donald Trump rally.
We cleared the decks at relegation, offloading five Premier League players and funding Rafa with a championship quality squad.
As we near the end of this window, we still have a Championship quality squad after £30m expenditure and are five premiership quality players short.
As our owner acquires 22% of Debenhams with a plan in mind using his wallpaper money, I can only conclude the same way I always do…
Mike Ashley owns my club in order to torture the supporters and give him some perverse pleasure .
Sorry Mike but God forgive me, it doesn’t bother me anymore – that is the obscene tragedy of what you have achieved.
In Rafa we trust.
