Reaction to the Pardew news from Freddy Shepherd:
“Perhaps I would have done the same as Mike because football is business and business is business and you have to go with what is best for the business even if it does not sit too well with the fans.”
The problem with NUFC. The problem with football generally. The antithesis of how anyone with any sense of the importance of sport should think. Lest we ever begin to think Ashley is some new breed of corporate villain who ousted a bunch of benign Geordies. Unscrupulous bastards, it seems, can come from any part of the country.
