In a recently televised interview, the Newcastle United manager, Alan Pardew, in a rare moment of openness said , in addition to Mike Ashley not understanding the football business, that “When he (Ashley) is upset he does things that aren’t brilliant for the football club.”
Newcastle United is being run on a day to day basis with no long-term strategy and ridiculous bombshells such as this ban dropped from on high, by an owner who doesn’t care and doesn’t have a clue. What a mess.
Chronicle Editor Darren Thwaites; “We may be banned but we will not be gagged. We all want Newcastle United to be successful but it would be nonsense to pretend the fans are happy about what is going on behind the scenes.”
