Mike Ashley is a small-time, cheap, unambitious, pig-headed, clueless, stubborn fool

Mike Ashley has done a lot of things at Newcastle. Most of it inconceivable to a Newcastle fan. But his latest venture in making Rafa Benitez' time on Tyneside untenable tops the lot.

The question is why is he doing what he is doing? Why is he blatantly refusing to support him and not making every effort to keep him here for years to come?
Some say it's perhaps there is a possible sale of the club in the offing so for him to spend any money isn't in his interest, nor is the future of the club. This is wide of the mark IMO. 
Others say it's because he refuses to allow a manager with one year left on his contract to spend money on players and then leave at the end of the year, which would then leave a scenario of a new manager wanting his own players. This is closer to the mark IMO.
But even this doesn't really make sense as the ONLY way Rafa would sign a new deal is if the club back him. Not the other way round that Ashley wants it. If you sign a deal, then we will s…

NUFC Official Bid for Strike-r Modibo Maigo

Puppet Pardew has been waffling again today prior to the huge Wear-Tyne derby match tomorrow.
More questions as to 'just where the hell are these new signings Alan?' and the same old answer, 'Dunno'.

He has admitted that NUFC have made an official bid for Sochaux striker Modibo Maigo, who has been on strike for about a week in order to try and force through a move to NUFC apparently, ala Hatem Ben Arfa style. It must be custom to go on strike in France in order to get a move to NUFC these days.....

All we can go on is the clips on YouTube to see whether this lad would cut it at NUFC. If you watch them, he looks quick, big, but screams inconsistency. The fact we have 3 big inconsistent strikers already in Ba, Shola and Best doesn't exactly have me getting excited at the prospect of bringing another one in to complete a Fab-Four. Or would that be Drab-Four....

I hope this transfer dies a death and we bring someone in with the necessary consistency, guile, clinical and reliable qualities we anxiously need. Who that will be is the £35 million question....STILL yet to answered!
