We are starting to get just a little worried that the sale of the Newcastle club, which seems to be in full tilt right now, will produce even more soap opera chapters on Tyneside, and that cannot be good.
Mike Ashley – a disgrace to the Newcastle club
And we have to hope the players and Chris Hughton are successful in avoiding all the nonsense that owner Mike Ashley continues to create at Newcastle.
To say Mike has been absolutely hopeless as an owner, doesn’t even come close to addressing the damage he has inflicted on the club.
Isn’t the board at a football club supposed to support the players and the manager?
Chris talked about the new talk of an imminent sale of Newcastle, which may not happen until next summer:
“It’s isn’t a distraction, it’s become normal for us. We have got used to it. It’s really great just to be able to focus on the team and winning football matches.”
“It has been good to know we have managed to put the takeover stuff in the background a bit with results and performances. It’s probably to be expected that, with no games, there are lots of stories regarding the takeover again at the moment.”
“It isn’t something we pay any attention to because we have a group of lads who are very focused. They’ve had a good start to the season and this break has come at a good time for us.”
“It has given me the chance to give the players a couple of days’ rest this week as well and that is important because of the number of games we have to play in this division.”
If the club is to be sold, we have to hope that happens quickly, but Ashley has never done things well or professionally at Newcastle, and we don’t expect him to change.
We’d like to see him sell the club and leave Newcastle, and there will be huge sighs of relief heard on the banks of the Tyne, when that day comes.
He’s been a disgrace to the the proud name of Newcastle United – and those are the facts – that’s not an opinion.
