I've decided to start a new category in my weblog.
Let's see who I manage to collect in this category.
So first off, and what prompted the new category, is Freddie Shepherd.
Who? The chairman of Newcastle United who I was sounding off about a week ago.
This article by Ian Ridley in the Guardian, sums it up perfectly.
Shame of unsheepish Shepherd.
It is worth recalling here a few of the lowlights from Mr Shepherd's own career. Let's go back eight years, when his company, Shepherd Offshore plc, sold a warehouse, quite legally it should be said, to his brother, Bruce, for £175,000. Newcastle then did a 17-year deal with Bruce Shepherd to store their merchandise in the warehouse at an annual rent of £150,000. That is £2.5 million.
