There are some news recently, about a friction between Sam Allardyce and the new Toon boards, makes me and (I believe) Toon Army everywhere worried.
Allardyce said that the new boards (and the owner himself) not know anything about football, while the boards (Chris Mort) said that the Toon debts are too high (more than £80m) so he won’t let Ashley to spend more transfer funds.
Before the new boards take charge, some news are said that Ashley will give Big Sam a huge transfer funds at around £50m, while the fact is until the last Toon signings, the funds that has been promised before was never there.
Kieron Dyer latest transfer to West Ham also being cancelled at the last minute by Ashley, as he thought that the fee was too low for a player like Dyer. This has raising new utter rubbish story from the newspaper about Sam has to sacrifice Martins, in order to get fresh money to buy new players.
I don’t think that Allardyce would do such thing for the club. He already knows how thin the current squad is, and will not make it more thinner as the season is about to start in less than a week. Although we are now have Alan Smith, it doesn’t mean that Martins can go. We have Owen sidelined for even more days, and I believe Sam will not gambling about loosing another ’key player’.
Allardyce later said, regardless of Ashley’s involvement in the Dyer situation, that he still maintains good relations with the United owner, and chairman Chris Mort.
“It’s a difficult period because we have so many balls in the air. Most fall by the wayside but I think it’s better to have more feelers out there. The more you have, the more success you will get.”
Yeah, right! I think we all should stand United, so we will never got fall! I believe the revolution is just begun, the sleeping giant must wake-up, the Magpies should again flying high, so high….
