You can never accuse Mike Ashley of having ever understood the soul of Newcastle United.
Ashley – thinks – The Sports Direct Stadium?
And the statement made yesterday by the club sounded as if Mike Ashley was the hero who was staying at Newcastle to save the club.
What a joke – he’s the one who is destroying it.
And in the statement issued yesterday was this reference:
The Club aims to maximize its commercial revenues; this includes renegotiating its Club sponsor and kit deal, which expire at the end of this season, as well as welcoming offers for the stadium naming rights for next season.
Just let this man try to change the name of the stadium so he can make more money from a sponsor who is then named after the stadium.
St’ James’ Park is both a hallowed name and a hallowed place for Newcastle fans.
Of course Dave Whelan did that at Wigam with the JJB Stadium, now called the DW stadium, and it’s also done in the US. It’s all about money.
Ashley doesn’t seem to get it – he is an insult to Newcastle United.
Please leave the club – before you make it another laughing stock of the football world.
You are neither liked nor wanted on Tyneside.
Although we knew the announcement was coming, it was the tone and content of the announcement that show Mike Ashley is completely unsuited to be anywhere close to Newcastle United football club, never mind own it.
We hope he just leaves and we’ve had enough of him and his cronies on this blog – that’s for sure.
