Because Newcastle have Mike Ashley running the club his way – we have another utter and complete shambles at Newcastle.
Yes – yet another one but this could be the worst of his disastrous 12 years as owner of Newcastle United.
It looks like there will be no manager – and certainly no Rafa Benitez – to welcome the players back this Thursday when they report back to pre-season training.
Just imagine what some of our ambitious players are thinking after Rafa has not been retained.
That just shows you how incompetent Mike Ashley is – he must be forced out of the club by the fans as soon as possible.
And it looks like we will lose Salomon Rondon to West Ham or some other more ambitious club (there are lots of them) since he will not want to come to Newcastle now.
Rafa is no longer here, and the owner has clearly shown, once again, he has no stomach to have a top-six club that can win trophies.
That’s what Rafa wanted, and that’s why Mike Ashley ended his tenure at the club.
There are signs that the players such as Ayoze Perez, Federico Fernandez, Fabian Schar, Martin Dubravka, DeAndre Yedlin, Sean Longstaff and Miguel Almiron could all want to leave the club this summer.
That’s in addition to Isaac Hayden who was leaving for family reasons before it was announced Rafa would be leaving the club with his final day being tomorrow.
It’s chaos at the club, and it’s been self-inflicted by the two goons running the club from the top – Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley.
Although it’s Mike Ashley who makes all the dumb decisions at Newcastle.
And what does Lee Charnley know about appointing a manager?
The two he actually appointed (Rafa was offered to Newcastle in March 2016) were John Carver and Steve McClaren.
We just survived relegation in 2015 when we beat West Ham 2-0 in the final game, and Charnley waited far too long to sack his man Steve McClaren, and even Rafa Benitez couldn’t save us.
Charnley knows nothing about football.
And this is a massive crisis for our sacred club – the worst since the owner purchased the club in May 2007.
And that’s saying something.
We need Rafa back and Mike Ashley to sell the club to Sheikh Khaled.
But the untrustworthy Mike Ashley keeps saying he wants to sell the club.
We’ll know in about two weeks – that’s just another lie.
