The King is dead – long live the Wise

Well as predicted by fW that King Kev of Newcastle would go early on in the season, his differences with the board, (aka Mike Ashley,) have forced him out of his beloved Newcastle for the second time this week. Will the wise man, (Dennis Wise,) now take the managers job or stay in the board room?

Kevin Keegan has been and will continue to be a legend within the fan base at Newcastle. In our opinion this was never going to be a match made in heaven. Keegan slipping stories to the press started a strange week in football terms. It was nearly as strange as seeing Mike Ashley clearly down a pint of larger at Arsenal and then tell the fans, (and the police,) it was non alcoholic!!

Berbatov got on a plane and signed himself up to Manchester United, how could this happen in this day and age? We believe he should be fined by the FA for breaking transfer regulations.

Alan Curbishley is clearly now touting himself for the Newcastle job. Good on you for walking out on a board that do not seem to know that you are meant to keep good players or end up in the Championship. To be told by the corrupt agent that brought Tevez that,” you did not help yourself!” Well what can you say? Good luck West Ham fans you will need it this season!

Lets hope the season can now be full of headlines about great football.

Rangers in Administration

How can one of the top two teams in Scotland end up in Administration?  Why are football clubs so badly run?  There is so much greed in football this is why clubs like Rangers and Portsmouth end up in Administration.

I am a Bristol City supporter and I would hate to see my club in administration or go bust and disappear but why is it the football clubs are immune from normal business practices?  We are in a recession that has seen some well known, well loved brands disappear from our high streets, so why are football clubs allowed to continue.  It is about time the government stopped stepping in and allowed clubs to go bust and disappear.  That has to be the only way to get the message out to the rest of the operators of the football clubs that this is a business and must be run like one.  Need to learn to balance the books and stop paying ludicruios wages to average players.

I don't want to see anyone's club go bust but at the same time this nonsense must stop.
