  1. Just because we presently have a manager such as Rafa.,doesn’t mean we can rest assured the club couldn’t be relegated once more.
    And Ashley had better spring for a few decent players as it looks like this is one of the worst sides we have ever started a PL season with.
    A bunch of cheap no names from various sources and it looks like we are out of funds already, what happened to the big bucks promised.
    This guy has to go, he’s in big trouble with his real business, which obviously reflects on NUFC
    and has put up trial balloons in an attempt to find a minority partner to inject funds into the club, with no bites.
    Face it who would want to go into partnership with this guy, so FFS just sell the club and for a reasonable price, being no-one in his right mind is going to pay 400m..for it.
    Enough damage has been done during his ownership, time to go.
