Ashley: You Little Fat Twat

Lest there be any doubt about my feelings.

I had told anyone who'd listen when he first took over: He's made a packet in business, he'll know what to do. The scale of my error in saying that is breathtaking. Not only has he made a complete arse of owning a football club, he's now making an arse of selling one, for the second time.

Say you'd spent quarter of a million on a house. It turns out to have dry rot AND subsidence problems, and there's a recession, so now it's only worth £90,000. Would you cut your losses? Personally, I'd get a bank loan, deal with the problems, wait for the economy to pick up, and then sell the fucker at a tidy profit.

Newcastle United's situation is a lot like the Labour Party's, or even UK PLC. The wind turns and the people in charge are fucked. Stumped. Clueless. The culture of capitalism is that fuckwits, cowards and twats get to be in charge.
