Got to laugh really, reading about the lack of business at Newcastle United to this point.
Two things cause this…
Number One – The World Cup.
Number Two – Mike Ashley.
We never do any business during World Cups and Mike Ashley…well we all know him.
He is a conundrum, a shrewd businessman but blinkered to his way or no way.
Strange that he does just enough and doesn’t want to move the club on, or maybe he does, but on the club’s money and not his.
Mike Ashley has broken the aura of the club – no fun, no enjoyment, no ‘is he going to sign or not’, it is all gone..
He is an anaesthetic, slowly putting a great club to sleep,
Truthfully, if he had any sense he would walk away from the madness and lies.
Sadly, he can see the vision but Ashley can’t or won’t.
Merino out, maybe Ritchie out, and more worrying, potentially even Lascelles out…where will the madness end??
Prediction for you all.
More players out than in, with a plus figure for Mike Ashley.
You have been warned…
