Sam Allardyce, who was sacked by Ashley after only 7 months at the club, thinks that Ashley’s motives were always to sell Newcastle at a good profit, as soon as he could.
Sam Allardyce – Ashley after quick profit
Sam talked on talkSPORT today:
“It is crystal clear now what the motives were for Mike Ashley,” “I think that he did buy the club in the hope that he could quickly sell it on for a vast profit.”“
‘It is going from bad to horrendous and there is part of me that thinks I’m glad I’m out of it,”
“I thought Kevin was going to get the money I didn’t get – but the continuous sales and players moving in and out over the summer obviously caused him to conclude the job was untenable and the club was thrown into chaos.”
We need stability at the club, which means a long term manager – but when did you last hear that?
It’s certainly exactly what Chris Mort said after Ashley took over the club, but we’ve had more upheaval in these last 17 months than ever before. We just hope things settle down when the new owners come in.
You cannot do anything when you chop and change managers every few months, we’ve proven that too many times.
