nah, just boycott Mike Ashley and Sports Direct. That's my recommendation!

 

Yeah, he only single-handidly saved our club from financial ruin with his own money. What a prick!  :pow:

 

Yeah, but the prick forgot that he also has to back the manager with money to buy players...

 

It's like the story of the little boy with £10 who went to the store to buy a wallet for his £10...

But that's just speculation. None of us can say for sure that he wasn't willing to put money forward for the right players. We needed better centre backs and we got Coloccini on a record-breaking transfer for our club, for example.

 

When Fat Freddy was in charge, most of the sensible posters on this board were calling for us to get our house in order, and invest in young players who could build up a decent team over a few years. And that is exactly what we have done. We didn't sign a Dyer, an Owen, a Smith, a Duff, a Boumsong, a Viduka, or a Luque. But we did sign Jonas, Guthrie and Basong (who have shown great promise) and now Xisco, who I think is also promising.

 

Moreover, we signed all of those players completely out of the blue, which means that none of us actually know for sure what is happening behind the scenes. We don't know who we made bids for, how much Ashley was willing to spend for those players, and why we didn't sign them.

 

We shouldn't turn on the man who saved our club based on what we think we know, when we know absolutely nothing.
