  1. What a load of bull**** as usual ashley won’t sell he’s a fat greedy ******* and we will end up with another ashley yes man stop feeding the fans with crap relegation looms, I would rather see the club in league one and the fat greedy ******* having no choice but to sell the club for a rock bottom price


  2. Rafa had no choice but to step down as Ashley refused to step up his
    With Ashley’s lack of ambition for NUFC will only see Managers hired who are out of work and see the job as step in prolonging their careers.
    There is nothing to build on without new ownership!
    If BZG ownership is progressing they should place Rafa and Staff on retainer during negotiations.


  3. Can’t understand why a fat ****ney spurs supporter would have wanted to buy us in the first place? He has fleeced us every year for the last 12 yrs and still wants more. He forced 2 top managers out and brought in cross eyed ****ney smurf who thought he had more knowledge than KK . Ashley is a child in a mans body who plays a dangerous game and it will backfire when all our quality 1st team players will walk away and the toon can look forward to watching NUFC end up in Division one playing the likes of Sunderland and burton Albion in a regular basis. Fat boy Ashley, I hope you are proud!


  4. One world class manager, kk was a spent force the second time who had had more breakdowns than an Allegro. Fuck knows how we got so lucky as to have Rafa for three years under Ashley. I count us lucky to have had one goodanager amongst the ****e he has chosen
    Bring on the UAE boys. Can’t get any worse. HWTL
