Still no announcement that Chris Hughton has been given the permanent manager job.
Mike Ashley – second thoughts?
And with the Barry Moat offer still up in the air, we’ll have to wait a day or two to see what goes on.
Maybe the altercation Ashley had with the fans on Tuesday night after the Scunthorpe defeat, has given him second thoughts about keeping the club, and that it may be better for his health to sell up.
Ashley has ended talks with Geoff Sheard and the Star Foundation, and we are told that Barry Moat has put in a revised offer on the table for the Tyneside club, but just how revised it is, is anybody’s guess.
Once Chris Hughton is appointed permanent manager we can give up the ghost on Ashley leaving the club anytime soon.
And that will be time for regret that this man can keep a club, even though he has completely mismanaged it, and now has it in the second division, due to his complete and utter incompetence of trying to manage a football club.
No club should be held to ransom like this, by such an incompetent person, however rich he is said to be – certainly his wealth has done nothing for Newcastle.
