So Sad As The Incompetent And Arrogant Ashley Stays Put


Mike Ashley, in all his wisdom, has decided that he is just too good for the club t0 sell Newcastle United after all.

Incompetent owner refuses to sell

Newcastle issued this statement:

=============

Newcastle United are delighted to announce that Chris Hughton has been named the permanent manager of the Club, his contract will run until the end of the 2010/11 season.

At the same time the Club has confirmed that it has been withdrawn from sale and is no longer on the market.

The Club had been trying to broker a deal with a number of prospective buyers in recent months however none of those deals came to fruition.

With regard to the possible sale of the Club to Barry Moat, that particular bid has now fallen through due to the cash price of £80M not being met.

In confirming the news, Mike Ashley stated that he is totally committed to the future success of Newcastle United (oh give me a break – please) and will be focusing on gaining promotion back to the Premier League. Mike will put a further £20M into the Club this week. Is that apology money to the fans?

Derek Llambias, Managing Director of Newcastle United, said:

We are delighted that Chris has accepted the post of full time manager. He has done a terrific job this season and we wish him every success for the rest of this season and beyond. He will continue to receive our full backing and support.”

Chris Hughton added:

“t is a very proud day for me to be named as the manager of this magnificent football club. I thank Mike and Derek for their support and will be doing everything in my power to get the Club back into the Premier League at the first time of asking.

“Having the unequivocal backing of the players has helped me enormously and I would also like to thank Colin Calderwood, Paul Barron and the rest of the backroom staff who have never been anything but tremendously supportive to me this season.”

Whilst confirming these two matters, Newcastle United now aims to move forward on and off the pitch.

The Club aims to maximise 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.

=============

It’s really hard to know how you move forward when you have an owner like this still at the club.  It is public rec0rd that he  lies to the Newcastle  fans – that’s when he decides to even speak to them.

He should be forcibly removed from the club he has brought into such disrepute and he is the worst owner ever to own a football club in England – fact!

This is a sad sad day for the famous Newcastle United club and notice there is nothing in this statement about putting the club up for resale in the summer.

Sorry  – but I’m just not doing cartwheels over this incompetent and completely clueless owner staying on Tyneside.  He’s an insult to Newcastle.

We’d be better off if Mickey Mouse was running the club.

    Yes it is very sad indeed Ed, it is heartbreaking to think we still have this disgraceful man at our helm, who heas heaped shame upon shame onto our club.

    When you think of the dignity of SBR and then compare it to this pitiful excuse of a human being, it makes you cringe.

    An absolute farce of course. I think if the club was mid table he would probably have sold.
    If someone tomorrow came up with 80m in cash, i am sure the club would be sold. Effectively the club is up for sale permanently whatever might be said officially.
    Hughton will be very grateful and is therefore just the yes man they want.
    As for the 20m-that wont be new money, thats the money from player sales+wage reductions that he was going to take out the club before selling it.
    You also have to ask why not then give the 20m to Shearer at the start of the season?
    So we are even selling the name St James Park-might end up as the Sports Direct Stadium-God forbid.
    Even if we are promoted the club is going nowhere long term with this clown in charge.

    why could ashley not sell it to moat 60 million now 20 million next year that was moats deal there only lyk 3 month till next year i also think it is a radiculious idea in renaming the stadium he will probs rename it as MA SPORTS DIRECT STADIUM sumit stuid lyk that he need to put his hand in his pocket and produce transfer money the squad is to small and needs more quality in it also the chris hughton being named manager hopefully will be gd he has done well as caretaker manager but other caaretaker managers that got the managers job havint been as successfully as the manager and a dont think chris hughton will be able to presude top quality players to the club

    A sad day indeed.

    They have lied to us, everyone infact, treat icons such as Shearer and KK with little or no respect, infact tried to darken the name of someone who has done so much for this club in recent history and tried to turn fans against him.

    The tribunal found in KK’s favour infact finding that the owner tried to pay hush money to KK and infered that they (the club) made unfounded allegations about the man and ordered to pay all costs. These are the people to take our club forward?

    The match on Saturday, well we got a poorly deserved result but I couldn’t celebrate for longer than a minute or so after the final whistle, I suppose it was dawning on me then that the future looked bleak at SJP. Yes SJP will alway remain but the owner will (eventually) go, well even this isn’t untouchable now. How far have we fallen in the last 2 and a half seasons?

    I miss my club, I miss everything about it but I refuse to purchase a ticket, a shirt not even a hotdog from the stadium until this cancer is removed from it’s bowels.

    Where did all the good times go?

    Like I said on anothet thread, this parasite will have the team sponsored by Tampax and the stadium renamed The Tadcaster Brown Ale Stadium.

    I think I will support Gateshead while this tool is at the helm.

    I told you so lads-I have been saying this both times the club has been on the market….every time it happens it is during a transfer window.

    Watch some imaginary consortiums will pop up late december and the selling baloney will begin again.

    Now he will probably get Shearer in to pacify the majority.

    Dark days ahead.

    as long as the club is making a profit, MA won’t care which division the team is in. Being fans, we will have to swallow our pride for a prolonged period of time, and bear the same fate like some other once great brands like Kappa, Diadora. Unless MA, they are cheap and have no glory, but they are making money for MA. We will become the cheap stock in football but it doesn’t matter to him. He will still be pocketing profit from this club. It is a sad sad day for the club.

    Like most people this was not the news we wanted but predicably was the news we expected judging by recent history. This is totally bad news and my heart sank when it broke a little while earlier tonight. Its a gamble pure and simple, a gamble on us being promoted this season in order to sell for a higher price. One could suggest that his mate Moat being the only viable bidder was a ploy all along, and there was no intention to sell, as others have suggested. NUFC media exercise. If it was true and missing 20 million why no partnership with NUSC or another party? Dark days for the forseeable future, even more so if we don’t get promotion this season.

    I side with those who will not be putting a penny towards the current regime until Ashley is out. However long that may be. It pains me to say but supporting the current regime by attending games is only prolonging our predicament in my opinion, our loyalty is our downfall. And I don’t give money to people in good faith knowing they lie to me.

    It would appear that without sponsorship money (it all being spent) and Premiership income that our gates and match days takings/merchandise are the only thing that keeps Ashley interested – as well as an immediate return to the Premiership. Our loyalty might keep one of those going but our current position in the table is only masking more deeply rooted problems that might result in us not being promoted- and Ashley’s gamble failing. Come on, we’ve seen the performances, we know the teams shortcomings and all the problems all too well.

    Excellent Post ToonMobile-I agree our current position papers over enormous cracks-and the fact is once you peel away the mask there is a club rotten to the core.

    The football is very poor considering these are mostly ex premiership players,CH will struggle to get this bunch promoted and he will simply follow orders from above while the team continue to make hard work of awful opposition.

    The renaming of the stadium bit has to be a dig at the fans. Why rename something with so much history and sentiment, as well as knowing what an outcry there will be from the fans? Purely as a money driven opportunity, with little thought for the history and feeling of the fans, shows the contempt Ashley holds for us.

    Agree it’s like an ongoing Mutual Hatred….I just can’t see this ending happily.

    To be honest I can’t even begin to envisage where we will end up…it really is so messed up.

    How he can have the audacity to rename the club is just bizarre.

    sirjasontoon, you are spot on with the phrase “rotten to the core” – apart from individual action in terms of going to games or not it is hard to think of where we go from here though isn’t it. I might be wrong again but I think as a whole we are a bit scared to protest in any major way like last time since we put a lot of blame on ourselves for what has happened since. On the plus side now things are different, there is no potential buyer, no mysterious overseas consortiums – so what better time to show our loyalty to OUR club as a cohesive fanbase? I’m not sure that protesting is the way to go – afterall Ashleyand Llambias have very thick skin – but there must be something we can do?
