The former Newcastle chairman Sir John Hall has claimed Newcastle’s squad who remain at the club this year, should volunteer for a pay reduction next season.
John Hall – players should take voluntary pay cuts for next year
John is like the rest of us Newcastle fans – just very hurt and angry at our puff-pastry players of last season, not all of them of course – but far too many for our liking.
He has also appealed to Newcastle supporters to hold back on club owner Ashley, so he can sell up quickly and get out of Toon.
John told the Evening Chronicle today:
“Many of our players are on massive salaries, and the players have to take a long, hard look at themselves.” “They are morally bound to re-negotiate their contracts.”
“If they care about Newcastle United as much as they say they do, they will see is the right and proper thing to do.”
While that would be very nice players of course have no legal reason to do that, but maybe one or two might do that as a sign they accept some responsibility for last season.
But the players who would do that would in all likelihood be the ones who care most about the club.
Players like Steven Taylor, Steve Harper, Damien Duff, Kevin Nolan and the like, who are those players who at least tried their very best to keep the club up.
We just dreamed that Sultan Oabood bin Said bought the Newcastle club this coming Thursday, appointed Alan Shearer as manager on Friday, gave him £40M to spend this summer- and invited all Newcastle fans for a free holiday in Oman – please don’t wake us up. 😀
