Mike Ashley is sick of the "older players who have been drafted in with no future value". So says Alan Pardew. Alan Pardew: “The agenda has been set and I have to work to that. "They want players here with value and, in defence of Mike Ashley, there are times when players have come to this club who bring no future value but have been successful. “That is an area he does not want to be involved in again. Without naming names, that is something I have to understand. I have to bring players here of a good age who can add value. “Sir Alex Ferguson said it exactly right. Man United players are paid a lot of money but they deserve it because the TV viewers highlight they want to watch them and they are paid to win matches. “Some of the levels of finance to players who make up the numbers in this division are, at times, quite hard to swallow. We have had our share of those type of players, and we have to limit that.”
