We had hoped this would happen today, after a single report in a Sunday newspaper yesterday, that Newcastle could go into administration.
Derek Llambias – Newcastle into registration news is rubbish
Newcastle Managing Director Derek Llambias has rubbished suggestions, made in one Sunday newspaper, The Sunday Express, that Newcastle United are considering going into administration this season, or in the summer.
Derek Llambias last night told The Newcastle Journal:
“There is absolutely no truth in the story whatsoever. It’s ridiculous, it’s usually based on a rumour and I don’t know where these things are hatched.”
They are hatched in the evil minds of football gossip columnists – that’s where they are hatched – and it’s pitiful.
We have to admit that we continue to be amazed at some of the rubbish, these gossip papers are able to print in England, and get away with.
Most papers, and principally the Mirror, Sun and Mail seem to be trying to incite fans at Newcastle – and have been doing so for most of the season, since Kevin Keegan left. How they can print these stories, that have no basis in fact, is completely beyond us.
As one example yesterday, the Express suggested that Newcastle may go into administration this season, and doing that would cost the club 9 points and certain relegation.
Who in their right mind would ever believe that, and who is it that writes this ridiculous stuff? The author of yesterday’s complete piece of vile rubbish was John Richardson. Do you think he spent all last week thinking this up?
Surely at some point, clubs like Newcastle should take legal action to quell the rubbish that is written, and a lot of it is about Newcastle, as we all know.
We had said yesterday that Newcastle fans should not fall for the bait, which is exactly what the papers want to see happen – so they have a new story, and the worse it is for Newcastle – the better it is for them – and more papers are sold.
It’s shameful, that’s what it is.
