Newcastle United

Ian at 200 per cent has an excellent post on the current madness at Newcastle United:

“One might have hoped that this whole sorry incident would have led to people re-evaluating whether putting one’s club into the hands of an individual that has absolute power over its destiny for the sake of a few pounds was wise, but this hasn’t happened. What has happened in the case of Newcastle United is that the billionaire owner doesn’t have enough money to throw into the insatiable fire that is the modern Premier League, so they need someone even richer. The over-riding irony of the modern Premier League is that everyone now seems to think that progressive football club ownership should be a return to this sort of master/serf relationship.”
