As seen on TV Mike Ashley, Newcastle Unitedâ€™s billionaire owner was in joyous mood at the end of the Tyne Wear derby game and was seen dancing in the Directorâ€™s box.
Owner Mike Ashley with fans – loving it now!
He was celebrating another good performance from his new team under Kevin Keegan and a 2-0 derby victory over Sunderland in the dressing-room.
Thatâ€™s 3 clean sheets in a row and three wins in arrow at home for Newcastle united and they are now mathematically safe from relegation.
Newcastle extended their unbeaten run to six matches to with 4 wins and Kevin Keegan was in a goods mood also after the game, when told Mike had been seen dancing:
â€œI bet that wasnâ€™t a pretty sight,â€
â€œI read somewhere that Mike could have bought Leeds United or Newcastle, so when he came in at the end, I just said, â€˜Arenâ€™t you glad you chose this place?â€™”
â€œNo disrespect to Leeds, but you canâ€™t buy an atmosphere like we had today.â€
Ashley looked ecstatic after the game, and we think he is enthralled with the Geordie fans and the atmosphere they create at St. James’ Park. The atmosphere yesterday was so special and right at the start when Michael Owen scored the first goal, which was pure class, Chris Mort and Mike were jumping up and down like kids – so were we.
There’s no doubt Kevin Keegan is working his magic again at the club, but the good thing is that it’s a work in progress, and this team will only get better. 😀
