    Once again, Pardew tries to patronise Newcastle fans, or should I say Ashley and Derek are through the mouth of their puppet. Newcastle supporters are not so delusional to believe we can break into the top six or seven in the coming
    seasons however all we ask is for some ambition and honesty to be shown by the
    club, which is severly lacking.

    Four of our five best players, by Pardew’s own admission, from last season have now been sold, with only Tiote remaining. Moreover we have lost our two leading goalscorers, add to that
    the likely departure of Barton and we will lose what little creativity we had shown in the second half of last season. Those signings we have made appear to be astute signing at minimal cost however there are glaring weaknesses notably
    up front and at left back now. Add to that the loss of spirit and fight that the departed players bought to the dressing room, Newcastle could very well be in a season of struggle. If these new players don’t gel or become demoralised after
    a few defeats, who will galvanise them. To quote Pardew “It’s a heavy shirt, the Newcastle shirt. I am looking at the group and you can take it as read that the Bartons and Nolans, it fits comfortably, and Andy Carroll, his shirt fits
    and has got a big number nine on it, which carries its own weight.” It’s a shame that all those named by Pardew just a few months ago appear to have been sold or transfer listed.

    After all the false promises made by Derek and Pardew that all the Carroll money would be spent, we have now made a 5 million profit this window. To those that argue those funds have been used to pay for wages, Newcastle have now sold/released 7 players meaning the wage bill has been reduced by 250k a week, a saving of 13 million a year. In contrast, only 5 players have been brought in, which is especially strange
    considering Pardew said at the start of Janaury that we were one or two bodies short. Those five players would be on approx 190k a week, and Ba and Marveaux are rumoured to be pay as you play deals also. So Ashley has reduced the wage expenditure while also gaining a 5 million transfer profit. Also to those that would say Ashley has
    somehow saved us from financial ruin, Newcastle’s total liabilites in 2006 were 146 million, in this year they stand at 150 million, of which 139.8 million is owed directly to Mike Ashley. We have saved around 5/6 million in interest payments due to this, however I like many
    Newcastle fans would glady pay this to get rid of the cancer on our club. The club has made
    losses of 15 million and 17.1 million in the last 2 seasons however I am certain that Ashley would have reclaimed most of this from the extensive free advertsing of Sports Direct which is at the stadium and the training ground.

    The situation at Newcastle is utterly obvious, players are upset at the lack of ambition which
    is why those players are airing their grievances in public however as Ashley admitted in the Keegan tribunal his ‘PR relations’ will alter it so that those players are viewed as greedy so and so’s. The simple answer is those players were unhappy at the board and that gives Ashley a perfect excuse to cash in. Ashley has no desires to improve the
    club, he would simply have the club finish 17th every year and take his profits from transfer
    dealings. Newcastle fans need to realise that the soul and spirit of this once great club has gone
    and that we are just a subsidionary of Sports Direct designed to flog sports goods abroad.
    The only way for us fans to get Ashley out is to boycott games and merchandise, however that
    is the one thing we loyal fans won’t do, so Ashley knows he can do what he wants without rebuke.

    @ WWJBD

    What does WWJBD mean?

    Does it mean ‘What Would Joey Barton Do?’

    If no, can anyone guess what it means? Could be a laugh.

    : “I have rejected good offers from other leagues to stay in England. The style of football is perfect for me and I want to improve myself as a player.

    “I always wanted to go to Liverpool and they were always my first choice. One of my ambitions is to play regularly for Spain and it’s more realistic for me to fight for a place with Liverpool rather than Newcastle.” Quotes from Jose 🙁

    If you are not happy with Mike Ashley’s dictatorship then please send Mr Anil Ambani An email..

    I have been in contact and had good replies over the last year .

    Anil is a big Newcastle United Fan and it might just take a few thousand emails from us to get him to think about buying the club from Ashley.

    I have told him of the Indian community in Newcastle And we hard working Honest Geordie Public and many other facts about our History And Heritage .

    Anil wears the Shirt ! So do His Kid’s ! Black and white Daft !

    Please don’t criticise our owner Ashley to him. Just tell him we would love him to take us to the next level, and what ever you think might make him think.

    Shot in the dark , but he is a Big Newcastle fan.

    Here’s the email address. Ask them to forward it on to Mr Ambani’s (Anil) office and you will receive a reply.

    When you post on here Please mention if you have sent him an email,we can then have a head count.

    Though I disagree, it is a good post. You stated your point/opinion without bashing others or name calling which seems harder and harder to come by of late.

    Ashley the puppeteer

    Thanks for that post ..Totally accurate and just what i’v been trying to get through to people on this blog.

    Now Perhaps they will realize the truth. And reality Under Ashley and Sports Di-rectum

    Newcastle United are used to Drive Ashley’s main Interest . Sports Direct comes first.

    Newcastle United football Club are just a vehicle for Ashley to advertise his Company throughout Europe.

    Nothing More

    I wish Ashley was a Newcastle United supporter .

    We are being used.

    Please sell up Ashley please
