    Some of our fans are a joke! How can you possibly want him to stay after all thats happened? Plus why would he want to stay!? Surely he must leave and Keegan to return!! (Fingers Crossed)

    NO! The bloke is completely untrustworthy. He will never listen to the fans and will always side with his London mates against us. Go, go asap.

    Not a chance…

    he doesn’t seem to know how to run the club and the mess we are in is all his fault.

    The man has no credebility, and therefore no! He must surely sell up and leave, as we cannot trust his words.

    In a year’s time, we will probably be demanding that a new owner sells up because of a load of distorted hearsay. We are our own worst enemies.

    I don’t know, on one hand he’s done so many stupid things in a short period of time I don’t know if he’ll ever be able to recover from it. Also will he invest any money in us if he stays now, I highly doubt it. Also will he do whats needed which is have a management team who live and work in newcastle, because the cockney mafia thing was in my view only because the people put in charge did so from a london office rather than from st james park which is where they should have been.

    Personally I wouldnt mind Ashley if he got rid of his bad appointments in Llamblas and Wise, and appointed men who wanted to work and live in newcastle, and if this “£20m a year” thing was true rather than a complete lie seeing as he made a net profit on transfers.

    But on the other hand If a suitable buyer comes in I’d rather have the fresh start.

    Ashley’s biggest mistake was appointing a quitter like KK

    any way he should sell
    it will be better for the club and the fans imo

    BTW michael, people from Slough aren’t ‘Cockneys’, they aren’t necessarily ‘pricks’ either.

    He needs to learn a few things
    1: The fans are the club
    2: Football is not the same as running a PLC
    3: Football is not the same as running a PLC
    4: prudent investment can bring financial rewards even in football
    5: The manager knows more about players than you do

    If he could learn his lesson I think he was heading in the right direction, but it’s probably too late now. If the Geordies don’t trust him it’s all over

    On balance NO! He’s made too many mistakes. He will stick with Dennis Wise! Why I just don’t know? Too much bad blood spilt. Mind if Joe Kinnear turns things arround for the team, and he backs him in the January transfer window, then who knows??? BUT then you keep thinking, why is Dennis Wise still there!!

    I think lots of us fans would never want him to stay as it will indirectly be like backing Wise over Keegan. A fresh start is needed really as Mike hasn’t lived up to his own words. He’s cowarded into a corner when things have gone wrong and shown that a good businessman isn’t always a good football chairman. I can’t believe in all the times he sat and mingled with the fans he didn’t hear some of us saying how we don’t like Wise and also the fact that we need more players.

    I don’t desperately want him to stay, but wouldn’t mind it. So I guess i’ll say yes.

    What’s worse, the fact you went to the trouble of asking the question or the fact that 28 people voted yes? Good grief

    MA completely refused to get rid of Wise or Liambas. Even to this day. At the time he could have admitted that his system hadn’t worked and installed a new manager with a new agreed system. I believe in the early days it could have sorted this mess out. The Keegan thing is another issue because nobody really knows what went on there. MA’s arrogance has pi**ed a lot of people off by the sounds of it and I cant see how we can move forward now with MA.

    Amble, fans have an opinion, they differ. I’d say it’s worse that you can’t appreciate that.

    I’d prefer if another poll was added, would you mind if Ashley stayed and made some changes to the current way the club is being run.

    These “fans” have clearly had their head in a bucket for the past two months then. Of course fans opinion differ, but in the face of such overwhelming consistent and damning evidence, how anybody can even comprehend him staying and still call themselves fans astounds me

    Whether we want him or not I think we are stuck with him for the foreseeable future due to the credit crunch no one in their right minds would buy a football club at the moment unless your a super rich arab

    If ashley is to stay he needs to admit his mistakes and then run the club the way it deserves to be run. He needs rid of wise and to bring keegan back for starters, he could do with showing the fans some respect too!!!
