After yet another hopeless attempt at spin doctoring from Mike Ashley, the key response from all fans should be…
Do your job and support Rafa!
I watched bits and bobs of the interview and the key thing to me, seemed that it was all about the past. What about now and the future??!!
As many have said, nobody expects (or wants) us to be competing with Man City or Chelsea.
Ashley’s right, in the fact that they’re basically backed by actual countries as opposed to individuals! It is ridiculous.
However, to continually plead poverty doesn’t wash.
We were skint under Pardew, despite five years in the Premier League and all the tv rights money sloshing about.
We were skint because of relegation.
And now we are skint again. Despite being back in the Premier League and all the money sloshing about! So when will we ever have any money?
Equally, stop apologising for sacking all the managers in the past 10 years and for all the mistakes made. We don’t care that you’re sorry now!
We care that you didn’t listen at the time to all the people who said you were making huge mistakes and still did it anyway. This is the biggest worry because it means it will happen again.
The Mike Ashley modus operandi is to go ahead and do what he wants to do and ignore the advice/consequences.
If that happens again, Rafa will walk and many, many people will go with him.
So Mr. Ashley, stop doing pointless interviews. Start learning from the mistakes you witter on about in them. Starting now!
In fact, starting yesterday.
