It looks like Mike Ashley has the exact same vision for the future Newcastle United side as the great Newcastle fans.
Mike Ashley – listens to what fans have to say
And since Mike has been in the same stands as the fans over these last several games it seems he is also willing to listen, to at least some extent, what the fans have to say. Not a bad position for a businessman to take because the fans are Mikeâ€™s customers, or should I say the customers of Newcastle United Football Club.
But it does seem that Mike shares the same ideas and values for Newcastle United as most fans. He wants a winning side yes, but also one that plays attacking football and will give entertainment to the vast Geordie faithful which gathers at St. Jamesâ€™ Park for every home game.
What seems to have happened is that Big Sam was dismissed, more for the way his Newcastle side played, than for any other single reason.
And we think the fansâ€™ opinions on various managers that come up may well be tracked by Mikeâ€™s people to see how they would be accepted on Tyneside. Yes, it may be a fantasy to suggest this, but Mike and Chris know who their customers are, and who are really important to the Newcastle United Football â€“ the fantastic supporters. He said that when he first bought the club back in the summer.
So please keep letting us know who you think the new manager should be, and if you havenâ€™t voted yet in the polls in the column directly to the right â€“ please do so. But only vote for one manager.
Comments and opinions always welcome.
