Nicky Butt has rightly spoken out for the Newcastle players today, and says the players have no idea who’s making the decisions at the Newcastle United club, and who may even be buying the club.
Nicky Butt – players don’t know anything about what’s going on
They fact the players know nothing about what’s going on, is this really a new phenomenon?
The players and the fans have never been told anything about what’s going on since Derek Llambias took over from Chris Mort in mid-June, and they even prevented Kevin from talking about any of the summer transfers, until they were completed.
And that code of conduct was way before the argument between the board and Keegan in early September that led to the resignation of the popular manager.
Llambias and Ashley may be fabulous businessmen is what they do, but they have been inept and hopeless at running the Newcastle United Football Club since Llambias took over almost 5 months ago – and that’s the brutal truth.
Nicky Butt spoke about the situation today:
“No-one knows who’s making the decisions at the club at the moment. We’ve got players running out of time on their contracts but no-one can sign a contract, we don’t know whether someone’s buying the club or not.”
“It’s the same with the manager – I’m sure he’s looking to get himself settled down but at the minute nothing is happening. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.”
“As players we just get on with it. It’s been like that for a while now so we’ve just learnt to get on with it – I’m sure it’s more frustrating for the gaffer because he’s in limbo. It’s something that needs to be sorted out soon.”
Ashley would do well to make a statement to the Newcastle fans and players, about what the current situation is, without giving away too much detail that may negatively impact the sale.
Does it look like Mike will sell and about what time-frame are we talking about?
Mike is treating both the Newcastle players and fans with complete disregard and disrespect, and that again is getting to be intolerable.
Come on Mike – tell us something about what’s going on – please.
