When I was 16 a friend of mine had been on a visit to Carnaby St (and bear in mind this was the swinging 60’s) and had come back with a very cool pair of flared hipsters with big leather belt. Sounds unlikely, and very Austin Powers, but these were the thing for blokes to wear. And I really wanted a pair. So off I toddled to Blackpool’s equivalent of trendy boutique street (one shop) and blew all my savings on a pair of flared hipsters made from bold orange corduroy.
Tonight an inside source at St James’ Park has confirmed that owner Mike Ashley has come to a major decision about the managership of his beloved club Newcastle Utd, following today’s 6-0 thrashing by Manchester Utd – not to give the job to Nigel Pearson!
A fan’s representative said they were 99% behind the owner’s decision although he admitted there was still a core of fans who felt that Ashley should give Pearson more time…..
You’ve gotta feel for the NU fans tonight – it’s a frigging train crash happening in slow motion up there.
