In any other walk of life this would make a quality movie, (NB: Movie to be made by Universal in 2020 about FIFA) the bald evil villain with the world at his mercy! The fact it's ruining the beautiful game means we all need to sit up and take note!
The term 'Blatter' has taken on a new meaning, hard to believe there could of been anymore to add to the ever growing term in the dictionary but after last weeks events the term could eventually take up a whole page in the next edition of the oxford version.
It's about time the powers behind the super clubs come out in force and unite against this evil man child!

It's final day of the season! Two are down, and it's one from either Hull or The Toon! We've been in this situation before and it was The Toon that ended up sinking! Back then Big Al couldn't help stop the rot! It seems The Toon have this self destruct button they can't help but press! They've spent big on players that just haven't bothered bringing their boots to games! Updating twitter seems to be more important to them than putting in a solid 90mins for the fans! Even the returning Spider Man (Jonas) couldn't lift the players.
Now we find ourselves 90 mins away from seeing The Toon playing second tier football (again!) With the fact their playing against one of Ashely's so called lot - The Cockney Hammer Mob from Down South, surely there shouldn't be any more incentive needed.... But wait a minute, put that cuppa down there's more to this story! This has all the makings of a Hollywood block buster! The extra added incentive for The Toon players, fans and management is that their facing a team managed by BIG SAM! (If you don't know the history between Big Sam & The Toon then you might as well give up watching football!) Add to the fact The Hammers look like their kicking the Big Man into touch after the match this game has got the lot! The half time Tea lady will have her work cut out!
Personally i think The Toon should put out a team of kids! Whats the worst than can happen? The current 11 (minus Jonas & Krul) have been pure w`?k for the last few months! Throw in the likes of Tom Heardman & Greg Olley - they will be fearless. The fans love a hero and unfortunately none of the current first team squad look like they would take a bullet for their mums let alone a stadium full of screaming Geordies! It's gonna be a long 90 mins today but for the sake of Football and a city full of Geordies i hope the men in black and white stripes deliver as The Premier League needs Newcastle as much as Newcastle need The Premier League!

It's May the 16th, the sun has disappeared behind a grey cloud and Steve Bruce, along with a number of other managers can be seen sat with a cup of tea and a pack of hob nobs - wondering what on earth has gone wrong this season? With the news that one of his best players has now been suspended (the white stuff) for the remaining two games, realistically Bruce and Hull must be odd's on favourites to go down!
This time last year Bruce had guided Hull to the FA Cup final, they were safe from relegation and everything was coming up roses... a few months are a long time in football!
Likewise for the comedy club down South... 2 months ago Spurs were in the form of their lives, looking forward to a domestic cup Final, add in a Europa League match against an Italian team full of Premiership rejects and after a convincing 2-1 win over their rivals were Spurs finally going to live up to all the hype they have had thrown at them... In short No!
Spurs are now 6th in the league, drifting through the final few weeks and it looks as if they don't want another season of Europa League distraction.. in short If Steve Bruce can get his Hull team playing against Spurs then they will leave the Lane with a 2-0 win (Dawson double maybe!)
Meanwhile across the capital Chelsea can afford to take their foot off the gas as they have nothing left to play for, title's in the bag and their out of Europe, Will Jose give youth a chance in the final 2 games?
And finally in the Championship playoff last night, Boro have managed to get to the final after beating a spirited Brentford team, Fair play to Brentford they have been a breathe of fresh air this season, playing some amazing football along the way on a shoe string budget! The Chairman needs a rethink about letting his manager leave in the summer! In short sign him up for next season! Who knows they could be 12 months away from playing top flight football!
