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…

More Killer Clowns! Steve McClaren Is Back!

Derby County are insane. They have finally parted company after weeks of delay with the strange Nigel Pearson, they then interview candidates to take over the task of promotion to the Premier League and have decided on their man. That man is....Steve McClaren. Erm...what?

Not only did he completely fail in his 6 months at NUFC by relegating the football club after huge funds were spent on the team, he failed to bring promotion to Derby County the season before. He was sacked after finishing outside the play-offs, despite topping the table at one stage with promotion looking guaranteed. They imploded beyond repair and he rightfully got the boot.

He then somehow managed to swindle himself a Premier League job with us off the back of this disaster, in which the team he was in charge of didn't even have time to implode as they were useless pretty much from day one. Why in the hell Derby have decided to go back to this man is beyond any reasoning whatsoever.

Why the hell would you go back to the man who proved he wasn't up to the task of promotion, when a club like Derby would have a long list of potential suitors? It would be like us hiring back McClown after Rafa, if he for some reason departed St James'. Mental.

There is a craze around at the minute of clowns wandering around the streets and scaring people...the streets around Pride Park is the scariest one yet.

Do the Derby County directors have no memory to speak of or have chosen to bury their heads in the sand? Talk about Ostriches eh Nigel...?
