Mike Ashley knows only one language – The Fat Controller has only one interest

2 years ago

Having continued to be a Newcastle United supporter despite a move to Kent 44 years ago, I have finally had enough.

It all started with that idiot “Sourness” who sold off our fantastic squad and wasted a fortune on a new poorer squad that he was incapable of managing effectively. Since then, it has just got worse and worse.

When Sir John Hall sold the Club, he hoped that he was selling to a buyer with the resources to drive NUFC forward. He was only 50% correct with Mike Ashley.

The Fat Controller may have the funds but does not see Newcastle United as a football club. He sees NUFC as a marketing tool for his infamous but dominating sports retail outlet.

So, where are we now?

Already discussing the prospects of relegation even before the start of the season.

An owner without ambition but a support with ambition

Our best manager for years recognising that NUFC has no future other than fighting relegation

Recognition by proven Managers that offers of employment by NUFC is not worth a second thought.

A reduced squad through profit taking

No replacement players on the horizon and likely to get worse as potential players ask what NUFC has to offer beyond uncertainty and a fight for survival

I could go on and on and on but it will make no difference.

The Fat Controller has only one interest and that is squeezing NUFC and its loyal supporters for profit.

I will always love Newcastle United but no more match tickets, no ore replica shirts, no more merchandise of any description.

Cashley knows only one language and that is profit. It is up to us to ensure that income stream is cut off.
