Flat Broke

First it was referees, then injuries and ex-managers, now the global financial crisis, not Joe Kinnear or his players, is the cause of Newcastle's inability to win a game of football. "Life is seriously tough," wails Kinnear, "Mike's lost two billion quid...he's just about paying the wages". That must have been a real shock for Ashley - he was only worth £1.4 billion to start with.

I read that yesterday and was puzzled too. Maths probably not JoeK's forte... or he's been misinformed again.
My favourite tho was the next sentence "I do not know what this club is worth..."

Doesn't look like football management's his forte either. Wonder what is?

Do capitalists that take a large financial hit not have the decency to top themselves these days?

Lose on Sunday and he won't be the only one feeling suicidal.

I don't know who's the least likeable - Kinnear, Ashley or Wise.

It's a tricky one, that. Throw in Bellamy, Freddy Shepherd and that cocky arsehole Llambias and I'd be completely stumped.
