Come On Sting - Think Of The Toon!
Published : 18 Nov 2012 12:06:20
Alan Pardew was crying in his beer this morning, suggesting his team would be in a far better state had Mike Ashley coughed up some big money in the summer.
Perhaps we could do with someone to splash a bit cash at this club.
What about a millionaire pop star? Sting has enough dosh to buy the African continent ... and isn't he a Geordie, and (allegedly) proud of it.
That is a massive change - now that Newcastle is the hip party capital of the country at the moment - considering Sting once said: "Getting away from Newcastle was the best move I ever made in my life".
So where is this article leading to? Well .... Snoop Dogg has revealed his love for Celtic and Georgios Samaras - and the rapper is ready to invest in the Scottish game.
The 41-year-old hip hop star is a qualified football coach and has even consulted fellow Los Angeles resident David Beckham about the Parkhead club.
And Snopp, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr, wants to add the former England captain to Neil Lennon's squad.
He told the Daily Record: “I got a lot of interest in soccer. It’s not a new thing for hip hop stars to invest in sports teams but it is a new thing for hip hop stars to invest in soccer teams.
“I see how passionate Celtic fans are about their team and I could see myself making an investment if any of the board wanted to sell.
“I haven’t really thought how much. I don’t need to run a soccer club but enough of a percentage to get me on the board so I can be heard. I want to bring a bit of Snoop to things. The boxes at Celtic would never be the same once I have hosted a party there.
“I asked my man David (Beckham) about Celtic. I would try and sign him up for a season....I would have to at least make that offer to my boy."
Greek striker Samaras is much maligned in some quarters but not in Snoop Land.
He said: “I like Samaras a lot. He looks like a proper athlete and is a pretty dangerous player. If we are to go far in Europe, he needs to play well."
