The Sunday Mirror is reporting today that angry Newcastle United players hopefully could be the final straw for London based Billionaire owner Mike Ashley.
Mike Ashley – we’ll not see this scene again
Last week Mike went against the wishes of the Newcastle fans, the Newcastle public, the Newcastle players, and the Newcastle City Council and supported Denis Wise, another Londoner with no club background, over Newcastle legend Kevin Keegan. It was a massive blunder we think he will have a very hard time recovering from.
Newcastle players are said to be ready to bombard the club with a mass transfer request, as a protest at Kevin Keegan’s departure, and some of the more senior players at the club, have even contemplated strike action, for Saturday’s match with Hull City. But lads – we need the 3 points still.
The proverbial Newcastle insider revealed today:
“The mood in the dressing room was ugly. Some of the players felt totally betrayed and talked about refusing to play.”
“Just about everyone – apart from the new lads who had signed in the summer – was furious with the way Kevin had been treated and the fact the entire squad had been put up for sale.”
“Calmer influences prevailed and the feeling now is they will hit the club with transfer requests in January.”
“They are disgusted with the way the club is being run and don’t want any part of it.”
Newcastle fans, many of which have been fanatically supporting the club longer than Mike Ashley has even been alive, are desperately thinking of ways in which the Billionaire could be forced to sell the proud Tyneside club, he has so denigrated this last week.
Many think Ashley’s actions of last week have gone beyond the point of no return.
