Newcastle Emergency Meeting Never Took Place

Reports in the press yesterday that Newcastle United held a crisis meeting at the club yesterday seem to be another way the gossip press dreamed up of selling their Sunday newspapers.


Mike Ashley – tough time in first year of Newcastle ownership

There was no emergency meeting yesterday, and the reports seem to have centered around a drink Kevin had with owner Mike Ashley after the game.

Somebody put 2 and 2 together and got 5, and suggested Mike was talking about the crisis situation at the club.

A Newcastle United club spokesman said today:

“Mike always has a drink with the players and managers after the game and it sounds like someone has seen him talking to Kevin and jumped to the wrong conclusion,”

“I cannot comment on what may or may not have been said in a private conversation.”

We’re sure they talked about the relegation mess we’re in, even though the team played really well on Saturday and it was so cruel that we got zippo from the game.

But on the other hand that was a Kevin Keagan type performance from Newcastle United, and we played Blackburn off the park. We think it’s only going to get better before the season ends.

We think we’ll be OK, but Mike Ashley and Chris Mort will have to keep their nerve, and not do anything silly other than fully support Kevin in his quest to bring safety to the club.

We have no doubt he’ll be successful in that, as long as we fully support him and the players and don’t make matters any worse.

Comments always welcome.

    Was I at a different match on Saturday?. I thought we played well, looked threatening, more fluent and confident than we gave done all season. But match reports in the Sunday papers were full of ‘hapless’ ‘witless’ ‘hopeless’ ‘chaotic’ statements. OK we were sunk by a sucker punch and now it looks really scary but despite being worried I am feeling just a tad more positive than maybe I should be.
    ED – Can’t we name and shame these pathetic journalists who are just writing about the NUFC soap opera rather than reporting on the actual match? Or is it me ? was the match (not the result) really that bad?

    Something along the lines of.

    Ashley. How about getting some one up in the stands with a sniper rifle to take out any other bl**dy goalies who play their bo**cks off.

    KK. I’m not sure we can do that boss.

    MA definately likes a drink lmao, with the players, the manager and then the fans 😀

    Welcome to the Toon ha ha ha

    I see that the maccums stopped him buying every Toon fan @ the stadium of shite a drink !

    lol he likes his drink 😀

    As for any gutter/southern press articles on this and similar subjects = rubbish, laughable really.

    I wonder why there is nothing to stop the press from continually printing such unsubstantiated rubbish.

    The press can smell blood and as always the London vultures are circling, waiting for us to flop.

    If we can stay up they’ll soon change their tune when Keegan starts bringing in the big signings. All of a sudden it’ll be all ‘King Kev’s Toon Revolution!’ and ‘All hail King Kev’.

    F**king bulls@*t.
