There are question marks over who to blame for Newcastle United’s poor transfer window, whether Chairman Mike Ashley or Director of Football Joe Kinnear should bear the brunt of the fans’ anger, but it’s Manager Alan Pardew who’s left to face the supporters as the head of the Newcastle Human Centipede!
After a lack of activity, Tuesday saw the inevitable excuses come out from Pardew, as Ashley’s mouthpiece was wheeled out in front of the media.
Pardew said: “Joe has worked hard on numerous targets, particularly an additional offensive player. However, some of the options available within our financial means were not as good as the players we already had.”
This financial means line is a load of rubbish, as every team in the Premier League has just taken record amounts of TV revenue income from Sky Sports and BT Sport.
Pardew continued: “With the strong squad we have we should all approach the season in a positive, optimistic frame of mind,” making him sound like a bad politician.
Pardew’s like a puppet in a piece of string, or the rear of the Human Centipede in Newcastle’s chain of command as shown by the brilliant image above posted by @ToonArmyMIA on Twitter.
Now I haven’t seen The Human Centipede but I’ve heard it’s horrific, so basically it’s much like some Newcastle performances matches we’ve seen at St James’ Park over the past 12 months!
