Lambs to the slaughter

1 week ago

I truly believe that this coming weekend the once feared Newcastle United will humiliatingly be put to the sword.

It will be like a Cecil B. Demille classic and Cristiano Ronaldo will take on the role once played admirably by the incomparable Victor Mature in Demetrius and the Gladiators.

You see, in the eyes of Masters and Hoffman, the English Premier League is the most competitive league in the world, as they steadfastly refuse to allow the septic six to be challenged in any shape or form…..hence “our” CAT anti-competition hearing this month.

When Leicester City (who had a proper and genuine owner, unlike us) shocked the football world and showed what could be achieved with ambition in 2016, it was undoubtedly decided by the powers that be, it couldn’t / wouldn’t be allowed to happen again.

The EPL is the most corrupt format currently operating in any of the major leagues, so when CR7 wheels away after his hat-trick on his return to his favourite coliseum….the “Theatre of Dreams” (yuk), please remember that we are just on show to be lambs to the slaughter.

Then the hordes of sheep can take their shirts and shoes off and “pogo because they love the Toon”…

I’ve a feeling it could be a stand out defeat (even by Newcastle United standards) and we will enter the record books for all the wrong reasons. Man Utd fan Steve Bruce will give Solskjaer his cuddles before, during and after the game regardless, whilst Alan Shearer will sit on the fence and not criticise his mate on MOTD.

I may be the prophet of doom but get ready for Tyne / Wear derbies next season without ASM, Wilson and Willock.

As Private Frazer used to say in Dad’s Army: “Doomed, doomed a tell ya….We’re all Doomed.”
