Newcastleâ€™s players were visited in the dressing room after Sundayâ€™s great win by Chairman Chris Mort and ecstatic owner Mike Ashley.
Mike Ashley – just ecstatic after Sunderland win
Mike was literally ecstatic after the win on Sunday, and could be seen dancing in the Director’s box as he celebrated a great win, and the 4th win in 6 games for Kevin Keegan’s ever improving team.
It was also 3 home wins on the trot with no goals conceded and 7 scored – not too bad at all. And of course Captain Michael Owen has come good and scored both goals to make it 8 goals in his last 11 games for the club.
Goalkeeper Steve Harper today revealed what was said to the players after the game by the Billionaire owner:
â€œHe (Ashley) just said, â€˜fantastic ladsâ€™, and shook everyoneâ€™s hands,â€ â€œHe was happy.”
“Him and the chairman came in and it was good to see his smiling face. Just as he left, it came on the television showing him dancing in the directorsâ€™ box.”
“If it had been on while he was in there, he might have got some stick!â€
And it’s also great to have an owner who is obviously so in love with the team. Mike Ashley wants to stay out of the running of the club and it certainly looks like since Keegan arrived he can do that.
All Mike has to do is show Kevin the money in the summer, but the way the team has been playing and the way the City of Newcastle has been totally lifted these last few weeks by the team, we’re sure he will do that.
He could become the toast of the City, and we’re sure that’s exactly what he wants to be. 😀
Upward and onward.
