Once More Into The Breach

Relegation, that ice cream lolly away kit, the likes of Stoke and Hull becoming attractive destinations for your few half-decent players, Calderwood and Hughton taking Joey Barton for pre-season training. I thought at least things might finally have reached rock-bottom.

Then the Shepherd family consortium rides to the rescue.

If it were true, he'd buy the whole club with almost exactly the money he got for his shares 2 years ago.
ironic, innit? guess he's shown Ashley who's the business brain here.

This is the grimest of grim news... Fat Fred - FFS!!!

Staying he has more business nous than Ashley isn't exactly high praise these days though, is it?
The last couple of seasons have only speeded up what was happening anyway. Fat Fred's last three managerial appointments were Souness, Roeder and Allardyce.

I never thought I'd wish so much for a foreign owner.
