Mike Ashley’s words ring even more hollow to Newcastle United fans, after the PL Tribunal had done its job.
Mike Ashley – why should we believe this man?
And the latest peice of PR is that all naming rights will go to buy players.
But we will never have any idea of where the money from various revenue sources goes.
We are still trying to figure out where that £20M investment will go – if indeed that is real, and not yet another PR excercie to simply accompany Mike’s decision to keep the club.
A PR excerize is what Mike puts out to calm the Newcastle fans down – just like he put it put it out that Kevin Keegan had control of players coming asnd going.
We were pleased to hear that – so what was the problem?
Well the problem was that the club lied through their teeth about that.
That was an acceptable piece of news for Newcastle fans to hear, but of course the very fact that it turned out to be a bare faced lie – brought out very publicly by the PL Tribunal, only proved that we know Mike lies to his customers – at least with his Newcastle United business.
Maybe that’s too harsh – he tells fibs to his customers. 😀
We were told – by an unnamed source at the club – probably his cohort Derek LLambias – the other clueless one – that the £20M would be used to invest in new players and the scouting network.
And that’s just exactly what we all wanted to hear – but that’s also why it is probably a piece of tripe – an edible internal organ from the stomachs of various farm animals – for the uninitiated.
Once you are lied to, you never quite trust that person ever again – and that’s how we take these statements from unnamed sources at the club – with a rather large pinch of salt.
It will take actions – like buying 4 new players in January for example – to start repairing the huge rift that exists between the owner – who is only temporary at Newcastle after all – and the Newcastle fans, who will support the club forever.
That’s yet another difference between the fans and Mike Ashley.
