The Gospel According to St. James's

The Gospel According to St. James's (another part)

Also taken from the Book of Ruth-less

And from the Park of St. James had there come much grief and Gate of Gallows Humour for they had taken unto themselves false prophets for many years.

They had listed to the Shepherd that didst scorn their womenfolk and couldst not pick a decent coach even if it had National Express writ upon it.

To the Lard Ashley didst they conspire thence, and lo, he did neck full pints on terraces high and mixed amongst the merry host e’en though he did talk and hawk his wares like a two-bit chav.


'I am the Lard and I move in mysterious ways my blunders to perform'

And unto them brought He the prodigal King Kev, who had much loitered on couches of punditry and made witless predictions uponst the quality of David Batty’s nerve.

And woe alack the day, Kev was but the old-born King and one visit from the Wise Man didst send him fleeing like a big girl’s blouse in a strong cross-wind.

Yea, and thence unto the Angel of the North ventured the Lard and so sorely tempted was The Shearer that he did set amongst the brainless sheep of the baa-codes with hope in his heart and an absolute dunce as his assistant.

But The Shearer couldst not save them. And sat he back between the Lawro and the Hansen – all three of them the Blather, the Glum and the Mostly Boast –

And still did the Terraces of Toon run rank with rivers of tears – and twas the second tier to which they ran - as the Lard Ashley didst lead them into the Shadow of the Valley of Debt.

And yet to some there appeared a star in the North-East. Yea, but there were no shepherds to follow that star, nor Wise men still hanging around cos the Lard was a mate. And yet still the star glimmered.

For it was told that there was somewhere Stable. And so twas that left with no other fucking option they found a new King. Chris. Jesus! Chris?

For he was there and had been there all along. Under their overbunged noses. Lying betweenst the Lard and the Lambias.

All about him the beasts were quiet; the Ass and the Ox (or Joey and Sol as we now know them). No sound there came until, upon the midnight air came there a tune for the wholly Chris. Aye, a Carroll. A Chris-must Carroll with a good movement in the middle and a lovely finish.

And unto the new-found Chris many more were born anew: and the Toon Army did redouble its faith. For The Chris was amongst them, both he and Kevin the First Noel-an. Dispatched were the Mackem and the Villain.

And Chris didst restore vision to those that had been blind (not least the lad Coloccini). And lo didst he entreat his followers to cast their nets like another side and lo the nets didst bulge with goals. And the success-starved Toonites didst dine out on this news, for Chris could make a lot of pretty average fare seem enough to feed the 50,000. For in short he had turned their Whine into Slaughter.

And Chris offered his home to the lost and lowly, the forgotten and forlorn: to the Dyer and the Krul; to the Perch and the Gosling; to Alan Smith and Xisco (no, not the twat who did The Thong Song).



And yet still the Lard looked down from over a stack of ever-multiplying chins and though he saw that it was good (well half-good any road) he was sore afraid that no one was talking about Newcastle much any more.

For, thought he, what is this Kingdom of St.James if it is not a complete and utter shambles. Why tis a nothingness. Tis a veil of mid-table mediocrity and fuck me, if I’d’ve wanted that I’d have brung back Allardyce.

And yeah though the mild and popular Chris didst unto his disciples give a severe bollocking after they didst unto the Dorrans and the Odemwingie grant the freedom of the Hawthorns, twas not still enough to save him.

And the Portliest Pirate didst call him in and did wash his hands of him. And alas Chris was cast out into the wilderness, for like Sir Bobby he knew not what he had done.


‘Lard, Lard, why hast thou forsaken me?’

And to the Twitter went the disciples to spread the Word: and yea even those that didst always think the Geordie Bottlers were a bit of a laughing stock didst bellow unto the tops of their voices.

And over his last cuppa Chris turned to his disciples and was unsurprised to find that the Shithead Lard Ashley had entrusted all he despised to St. Peter of Beardsley. (Steve Stone - as in dropping like a...)

  2. How on earth has Ashley not been chased out of Newcastle with Pitchforks and Brown ale?

  3. OK, 5th
    Great blog. Cheers Robbo

  4. One day, someone will do the decent thing and just ban that fat fuck from the entire city, in fact the whole north of England. Tell him he's not allowed to even think about anything past fucking Watford. I was looking forward to us staying up this season.

  5. let's face it no one would take any notice of Newcastle if they didn't have that idiot in charge

    MON bookies favourite

  6. I like the bit where st Chris puts his head in the whales mouth and the temple of buy@shitgear.com tumbleth around his ankles

  7. Even more amusing as the north east also has two of the best, least trigger happy chairmen (although I guess Robbo would be quite happy if one of them was slightly more quick to act!)

  12. so the club forever yearning for the messiah kick out their true saviour.

    what a joke.


    Houghton might have been sacked but apparently Jose Morinho is still not interested in the Newcastle job.

    Neither are SAF, Wnger, Hiddink, Guardiola,.......



    Mike Ashley, you are a pillock of the highest order.
    You useless pile of lard, you!

  13. this is like an old style England capitulation.

    more fun than watching owner meddling ruins results syndrome

  14. 1 to go.

    bloody just one more to go.

  15. we just need swash to buckle spit

  16. I have been thinking the whole evening for just one good reason why Houghton was sacked.



    Still nothing.

  17. come on England coup de grace please I need some shut eye

  18. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

    1:0

    Get in.

    ReplyDelete
  19. According to the Independent spit....

    The feeling within the club was that Ashley and his chairman Derek Llambias
    believed that Hughton – described by Campbell yesterday as a "lovely
    guy" – allowed himself to be dictated to by senior players. They regard
    O'Neill as the kind of character capable of taking on what is regarded as a
    strong dressing room.


    ........

    same article claims Carroll will now leave ...sol Campbell in open revolt...wot a fuck up

  20. that extra 70 runs we put on when some were saying Strauss should have declared were judged to perfection..

    ReplyDelete
  21. Cracking blog Robbo. I even got a name check in there. Booya!

    I'm presuming Jol will walk into the job, cos he's keen to get back into the Premiership, and cos no one else will want it. What a fucking shambles that owner is. Feel sorry for Toon fans, and also a bit surprised that he hasn't been run out of the place before now.

    Watched a great morning's cricket today. I was worried about the rain, but the bowlers beat the weather too. Great test match, and a fully deserved win. Roll on Perth.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hey Jacks, Roy Keane has taken the Newcastle job!!



























    Nah, just joking.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Not having won much in the way of trophies, Newcastle have to sack a manager every season or two to keep up some sort of record.

    ReplyDelete
  24. It's worse than I thought -- sixth manager to be appointed in three years, so that make two managers a season (don't know if that includes the caretaker managers).

    ReplyDelete
  25. G'day all

    Not much to add re the dickhead who owns Newcastle except that I'd like to see them to go through the rest of the season without a win and slide ignominiously out of the PL.

    A good win to England in the ashes. I thought the rain would have played more of a part in the mornings play but in truth there was hardly time for it to rain

    ReplyDelete
  26. England 1:0 Australia. Brilliant.

    ReplyDelete
  27. So we're 1-0 up in the ashes series, but more importantly, I'm above Adam in the FFL H2H on points scored.

    Just thought I'd mention that as he was gloating about being above me the other day.

    Oh and FBH for fuck's sake change your team and get a goalie who's playing in mate.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Mrs Jack is a Newcastle fan(note to Adam and Ngog,it's where she comes from)and even though she only takes a passing interest in the round ball game even she was angry with Mike Ashley.

    I hope all managers looking for work strike together in harmony and refuse to take the job up there.Stupid,stupid,stupid fat pikey schmutter flogging twat.

    Well done England,Bresnan in for Broad.

    Note to Newcastle board,see what happens when you put some faith in a thoughtful intelligent captain and coach?

    ReplyDelete
  29. You'd have to be desperate for work or clinically insane to take up the Newcastle job now Jack.

    I hear a certain unmentionable manager prowling the fens would fit in well there ...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Star,
    I don't think even Ashley is that stupid to employ a former Sunderland manager that combines the management skills as well as K***e.

    Having said that,I wouldn't put anything past that fat clown.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I fancy playing Liverpool player to replace Bale in my FFL team. I reckon both Spurs and Arsenal will draw their games... only question is will it be a score draw? I hope it does.

    Secondly, what side will Wenger put out tomorrow for Champs League. We have to win to ensure qualification. No such hassles for SAF's Utd team. They are already qualified meaning Rooney will be fully fit to face Gunners. We have to fear him, because he often finds his best form against us.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ashley in sacking Hughton has proven he's idiotic enough to do just that Jack ;)

    Probably a wise move SS11. I mean we've beaten Chelsea at home the past 2 seasons when by rights we should have lost as they were the champion team playing with their best XI each time against us.

    So you can bet that this year, with the shite they're fielding and we have a good chance of beating them we'll fuck it up.

    Then again we might finally keep a clean sheet against them.

    ReplyDelete
  33. humiliation ashley, how can you be so inept yet run a successful business. You are a shop manager and no nothing about football is the answer.
    get out while you can cockney plonker

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've just read a press release from Newcastle United explaining why they gave Chris Hughton the Spanish Archer.

    Apparently they were concerned that people were starting to take them seriously as a football club.

    ReplyDelete
  35. MANU FAN FROM NIGERIA

    Mike Ashley has all his screws loose, what is he thinking? They are 11th on the table, if he was in charge of Everton, the Hammers or the Pool, their managers would have been sacked in October. He is delirious with this idea the Newcastle are a big club.You only have to look at real Madrid to see that playing musical chairs with managers is counter productive. Anyway he might be trying to imitate Madrid who sacked Vicente Del Bosque after he won them the leauge and the Super cup double in 2003, Madrird had a succeful 4 years with Del Bosque that saw them win 2 La Liga titles, 2 UEFA Champions League titles, 2 Supercopa de España, 1 UEFA Super Cup and 1 Intercontinental Cup. Then Madrid went on a crazy Manager binge and had 10 coaches between 2003 till date.

    It is disgraceful that Chris was earning 400,000 a year, when Big Sam was grossing 3 million a year. Yaya Toure might as well employ him on the side to help Mancini with his man mangement.

    Jol said this on leaving Ajax

    I have come to realise that the expectations after last season were too high.

    "We cannot meet such expectations. The amount of criticism that the club has had to endure daily has led to unrest in the club and among players.

    As for me? Mr Consistent is still shadowing whoever happens to be the top of the regular league, staying 30-40 points behind but never really closing the gap.

    anybody else smell a rat here?

    -----------------------------

    I say shoot him - he's a treasonous scumbag whop is publishing information harmful to the national security of several countries just to make a name for himself. Rather than extradite him to Sweden just put him in the US card deck as the King fo Diamonds or something and let the Yanks give him a quick double tap to the head.

    How long til someone is killed or a terrorist attack happens as a result of the information he has stolen

    ReplyDelete
  57. Not sure if that's a WUM Adam? Just in case:-

    He didn't steal any information, he acted as a facilitator. On that logic all papers that do expose's should be closed. The whole arrest warrant thing is a set up.

    We have only had one attack and all you needed was a bus timetable and underground map for that. Wiki leaks exposed that a private in the army had access to top secret info.....oh and 3 million other people on their network.

    Good work Assange! Illegitimi non carborundum!

    By handling and publishing the information stolen by Bradley Manning he is at best accessory to theft and handling stolen goods or an accessory to treason, at worst a spy who deserves a bullet.

    By exposing confidential NATO plans to the Soviets he has put governments in the Baltic states who are pro-Western under pressure from Russia and he needs to be stopped as he is an attention seeking git

  81. 4-2 to the O's... good turnaround but they shouldn't have been in the position they found themselves on the hour mark against Droylesden ffs.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Not sure how I have missed the previous goals but according to the text the O's are now 7-2 up

  83. OK the game ended 8-2 after extra time... should have been the result after 90 minutes... but I'll accept it.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Well done the O's BO. An incredible scoreline at the end. I can only imagine the difference in fitness levels played a part.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Bo, that was great commentary, i had no clue of the result and you provided everything I needed to know in a 2 minute read, my pulse was racing when it went to extra time, you could easily get a job at the Beeb (and missing 3 goals out is not a problem over there either)

  92. Interesting new stat for Spurs: We're the first team to score 2 or more goals in all six fixtures of the Champs League group stages.

    Bet we're the first to let 2 or more in for all six games too ...

    ReplyDelete
  93. Pretty impressive ain't it Star? Bit of a worry how many we concede, but at least the attitude is 'score as many as you want, we'll just get more.' To be fair, we didn't concede that many in our home games.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Defensively we were quite good last season. I mean even mullering Wigan as we did we didn't get the GD we had at the end with a crap defence.

    Much as I hate to say this, (especially given the work he does in order to keep his career going with the problem he has) I think it's time to move King along into a coaching job at the club so we can try and get a brace of CB's who'll play together regularly rather than chopping and changing them every week as we've had to.

    Then again we seem to be cursd with CBs. They might well have had a perfect fitness record before but as soon as they step out in WHL they become perma-crocks.

    ReplyDelete
  95. G'day all.

    Nice to see the 2 English teams get through in the CL.Hopefully Arsenal will make it 4 out of 4 tonight.

    He also comes with the benefit of knowing he knows bugger all about football and has put someone who does in charge of running the team's finances, sorting out a new stadium etc.

    Best of all he's not an in your face berk flashing his cash and trying to buy instant results but tries to keep us sustainable as a company.

  114. Various bods on 606 are saying about staying away from home games to hit the fat bastard in the pocket after what he's done. I think they have it wrong.

    They should band together in force, the more the merrier, get into the match and collectively gob on Ashley until he gets the message that he's fucked everything up again and buggers off.

    If nothing else it'll be a talking point on MOTD.

    makes sense of your opposition to Wiki Leaks.
    -------------------------

    Oh well that was a snappy comeback. No I am the straight Conservative voter who owns Pet Shop Boys records.(nice to know that you are a homophobic communist though).

    My objection to WikiLeaks is that the information is stolen, classified and it's publication has but at risk a number of organisations and individuals whilst damaging relations between ourselves, the US and countries of strategic importance.

    His arrogance is causing unnecessary problems and I hop he is sent to the US to be stuck in a black hole somewhere. He is no better than people like Aldrich Ames who sold buckets of info to the Russians resulting in the deaths of several CIA operatives and local informants in the Eastern Bloc and this si doing the same in the Islamic countries.

    That is why he should be shot (along with HMV who have messed up my CD order this week)

  120. I think Anderson does need to produce these performances on a more regular basis. He has obvious talent but lacks consistency.

    Great game last night but Carrick is surely on his last chance as he was awful last night, passing was poor, tackling non-existent and his dithering led toUnited conceding.

    Hoipefully we'll get Braga or Copenhagen in the next round

    ---------------------------

    If that is all he was doing I would agree but he has released the names of CIA operatives and informants, classified embassy cable traffic, the details of sites deemed vital to UK/US national security (giving terrorists a ready made target list) and a classified NATO strategy to protect the Baltic states from military interference by Russia.

    These are serious items which should never see the light of day in this fashion (NATO Plans should be secret for 20 years at least) and has undermined the confidence that our military and political allies have in us.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Adam,

    had he not released tha actual names of the officials or the sources, would anyone believe in the authenticity of the information?

    I dont think so!

    It would have all been swept aside as leftist conspiracy theories.

    Our armed forces and foreign services are SUPPOSED to be superior than the third world and the despotic tyrants we call ourselves our allies in the muslim world.

    At least openly.

    There is no new information in the wiki-leaks at all. Anyone with half a working brain and a source of information other than the FOX News or other Murdoch owned media outlets knew what was happening.

    Still, if Assange did sexually assault these women, let him rot in jail.

    Would be ashame that we call ourselves the fore-bearers of freedom of expression and press and then stuff a guy who uses it for aggrandising himself.

    Agsin if he had just said Bradley Manning nicked this material from the Pentagon and there has been misconduct no-one would criticise him too much but to publish a list saying the following people in Afghanistan are CIA informants against the Taliban is not acceptable nor is a curent NATO strategic plan the sort of thing that should be leaked. 50 years ago that would be classed ass treason and he would be shot (and if he ws American still could be).

    ReplyDelete
  144. I can't believe you are both (Adam and Star) drawing comparisons with the 'War on Terror'. (A war on an abstract concept) with the Second World War.

    Wikileaks lawyer offered the US the opportunity to make a request for the non-disclosure of any information and they refused. (Conspiracy theory warning) maybe the US and NATO were happy to show their hand to Russia to avoid any more incidents like the invasion of Georgia and avoiding an incident like the Cuban missile crisis?

    Ha ha ha ha ha - Pardew!!! WTF? Football at the 'top' level in this country has lost the plot, totally loopy - and Newcastle FC epitomise just how pathetic it's become.
    The biggest clubs with over a century of tradition owned by crooks, idiots, foreign frauds and 'investors', players hired from the 4 corners of the globe, at the expense of home grown youngsters, but no-one complains as everyone is lining their greasy little palms, even those who warm the bench on matchdays. The only ones forking out are the fans. Players have so much money they can burn it and mix it with white powder and sniff it off some other players model girlfriend, but of course they'll make the national team, and the fans keep coming back, even though most of the players don't really care, the teams are generally random collections of people with no real affiliation to the club and play together just a handful of times before their agent talks them up and they're off to another club. The results of the 'run fast, think slow' football are random, but no matter as people talk more about the manager merri-go-round and player transfer gossip than the actual football played. Piecies of genuine skill and creative play are limited to a handfull of players who come from sunnier climbs, and because the game is so fast you're left thinking that maybe it was luck rather than skill as no players have any time on the ball before some overpaid chav whose only attribute is fitness comes clattering into them and breaks their over trained bodies so they're out of action for 3 months. The clubs who have lots of money, don't actually have any money, just debts that rich owners rack-up without a second thought, because this money is not a gift, it's a noose, a noose that these clubs are hanging themselves with. It's the Emperors new clothes. It's no longer the beautiful game, it's ugly, ugly and commercialised, and greedy and nonsensical, but don't worry the public will lap it up. There's nothing else on sky TV except the shallowest of shows from the U.S, so settle down for more mind-numbingly fast yet dull football that makes no sense whatsoever. This is the PL, which the FA promote as the best league in the world, to the point that having no local lads playing for the teams is actually used as a selling point for having the world cup here.
    Welcome to modern football, and welcome to the Premier League, as you're more than welcome to it.
