Postcards F rom The Edge Paully

It’s been a long summer especially without one of those events whereby the national team are the media darlings for a few weeks before becoming more hated than that ISIS lot. The hypocritical press should surely know how England operate at tournaments by now. I’ve spent time cheering on an Aussie (urgh) and a Scot (urghhh) as they smashed a little, furry yellow ball around a grass field and I’ve even spent a lot of time watching that Love Island bollocks. I don’t think I’ve seen as many tits in one programme and I’m not just referring to the ones that were compressed into bikini tops. It has also been a long summer due to the constant media reporting about the uncertainty of Rafa’s future at NUFC . I know some journalists have agendas and simply enjoy poopstirring but when certain journalists report that all is not well then it does set alarm bells ringing. I’m referring to two journalists who penned books about Rafa last season and who were also assisted by him in doing so. Of course, Rafa has previous with lunatic owners and he plays these situations like a very shrewd politician but it absolutely baffles me that a manager of his calibre is quoted virtually begging for more coin to spend on players. Ashley should be bending over backwards in order to keep him happy rather than completely infuriate him. I’d love to know what makes him tick. I know he gets his kicks from necking pints with vodka chasers and then spewing them up into a pub fireplace (we’ve all been

there) but he also seems to thrive on being public enemy number one. Most of the media reported that our transfer budget was going to be around £80 million after Ashley’s statement in May that Rafa could have “every last penny that the Club generates” but I was very sceptical about it. After ten years of his buffoonery, I wouldn’t trust him if he told me that some ‘ladies’ in Bangkok have a penis in their undercrackers. Actually, those ladyboys might need to change their name after the formation of the ‘Gender Police’. What a load of PC bollocks that is. We’ve currently spent £31 million on five players and our net spend stands at £15 million after a net spend of MINUS £31 million last summer yet apparently our funds are drier than one of those ladyboys’ crotches. We all know that NUFC picked the worst possible season to get relegated as we subsequently missed out www.true-faith.co.uk
