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:
â€œMike 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,â€
â€œI cannot comment on what may or may not have been said in a private conversation.â€
Weâ€™re sure they talked about the relegation mess weâ€™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 itâ€™s only going to get better before the season ends.
We think weâ€™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.
