TRANSFER DEADLINE FAN’S VIEW: Is Mike Ashley a Sunderland fan in disguise?

Have your say

WITH the transfer window exploding into life it seems that Newcastles talisman Andy Carroll will be heading to Merseyside to replace the leaving Fernando Torres.

Surely Newcastle fans will be seething, some reluctant to lose a player theyve grown to love, thats just football.

But most fans will now be asking, is Mike Ashley a Sunderland fan after allowing Carroll to leave?

From a Sunderland point of view this transfer is hilarious, after all the banter from Darren Bent leaving the club for more money it appears that the Gateshead-born striker has done the same.

Ashley thinking that one of his key players will stay and show his loyalty and lead the club to glory? It makes you laugh out loud.

What makes it better is that a replacement could be that of none other that Peter Crouch, on loan, this shows how tight Mike Ashley really is

One Newcastle fan stated: “He’s not worth £35million but who could we buy that loves the club and has the desire to do well as much as him? NO ONE.” Thirty minutes later he handed in a transfer request.

How will the money be spent? Who knows, good luck Mike Ashley you hero amongst Mackems.
