I haven’t posted since the summer transfer window, as my worst case Newcastle United scenario panned out, and I have just had to accept the inevitable.
We have a squad of Championship players trying their best but the glaring lack of quality at this level is glaringly obvious up front.
The manager has been stuck in the ridiculous position of having to keep stating that the current squad is in need of additions, to loosen the purse strings of Mike Ashley, an owner who has consistently lied to him.
The effect of which is to further diminish the confidence of the squad, knowing that to say different, would give the fat liar the excuse to say we don’t need to buy then.
We needed to spend £60m in August, we didn’t, and are in freefall.
Even an idiot like Mike Ashley must see that if he doesn’t spend at least £50m in January, the potential buy out will be delayed. Until May 2018 (at least) – but staying up or not, the offer ain’t going up .
I fear the narrow-minded little man will do his usual £15m and another hard hitting interview on Sky.
After 10 years of this bloke would anyone be surprised?
In Rafa we trust.
