Yes once again the spotlight inevitably turns on the great incompetents who have ‘managed’ our great football club. ‘Managed,’ to make them a laughing stock, and brought them into complete disarray. It seems barely conceivable that no-one appears to have considered the possibility of relegation while awarding mega bucks contracts to players signing for NUFC. This was a team playing in the lower half of the division for the past five years. They were clearly on a one way trajectory and it wasn’t in to Europe. It probably provides an insight into the thinking of the deluded fools who have managed our club. To think that no-one considered putting a clause into players contracts for a salary reduction if we were relegated, or to withdraw loyalty payments in the same situation. With some players due loyalty payments next year their salary will increase even though we’ve lost our top flight status and revenues have plummeted.
So as Mike Ashley walks away from SJP after his brief and costly sojourn into football club ownership having to stump up another £10m for players loyalty payments, and for those people who believe Freddie Shepherd should be given another chance, remember these instances to prove how completely unsuitable these people have been to hold any kind of stewardship of our great club.
