Newcastle owner Mike Ashley insisted his decision to employ 46 different managers next season was ‘entirely sensible football logic’ as the beleaguered club attempts to make an immediate return to the Premier League following relegation.
‘We had four last season and it wasn’t enough to save the club, but we’ve learned our lesson and, with the morale boost and upturn in results a new manager always brings, I can’t see how this can fail,’ claimed Ashley.
At the end of the season, fans will have the chance to vote for whichever manager oversaw the most spirited disappointing defeat, who will then be awarded the permanent job. They will then immediately be sacked and replaced with Kevin Keegan. Who will then quit.
