It appears we are coming to the end of the dark days of the Ashley reign. So, let's consign this era to a virtual time capsule, and unload your most memorable thoughts for the joint purposes of posterity and self-help.


In the event our grandchildren (or his next club........) ever ask what was life like when that Ashley bloke owned the club, we can point them to the this thread so as there's something to show for it.


I'll start with.............


- Dead Pigeons

- Zero infrastructure investment

- Bins as ice baths


I'm sure you can think of more fitting memories of the regime (Joe Kinnear, anyone?).


Just one word or term to summarise it would be good.

If we put in Pardew, Kinnear, Carver, and Charnley, would it be classed as a grave?


Add Steve Bruce, Bishop, Ameobi, Dick Keys and Rio and you couldn't bury that bastard far enough for my liking.
