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…

Total Dominance!

Villa 1-1 NUFC.

Totally dominated this game from start to finish. Aston Villa had nothing. Saylor tried his best to give them something, he has to have at least one Kamikaze moment that lad!!

Should have won. How Aston Villa are still unbeaten this year is a mystery! They were horrendous and clueless. McLeish isnt a good manager.

Best looks like he is stepping up to the plate and take some responsibility. He deserved a goal. Shola did well didn't he.....?? Sammy's the man.

Cabaye was absolutely awesome. Cracking signing. Fair play to the people involved in bringing him in. If it wasn't for Shay Given showing why he is still the best keeper in the league, he would have had a goal. That shot against the bar was immense. Only downer he had to square that ball right at the end. Cant believe he f*cked that up. 3 points on a plate.

I'll take the 1-1, but showed who the better team is. 54% possession, 21 shots on goal, 13 on target, 9 corners (according to BBC) 1-1 totally flatters Villa!!

2 key moments against us: Coloccini shocking defending for their goal; Cabaye should have squared it for a tap in at the end.

Apart from the QPR game, no-one can say we don't deserve to be where we are.

Undefeated. Keep it up!!

P.S. I wanna see Marveaux start instead of Obertan next game.
