A Video Message To Mike Ashley – Make Us Great Again


I think every Newcastle fan will agree with this message – meant for owner Mike Ashley – and it seems especially appropriate on this final day of the summer transfer window.

    Yeah have seen interviews with Carr in the past where he said he watches players all the time watches players for years as well said he wanted to bring Cisse/Ba to Man City when he was scout there but work permit issues did not allow it

    I think the problem is we basically always look to go the cheap option but I reckon if we had the likes of Levy as a chairman that would invest every year with Carr’s top picks then I think we would have some squad

    you have to understand nufc is not an attractive proposition for most decent and well established footballers.

    The manager could be sacked any second so you might be out of favour before you blink

    Would you be impressed enough by JFK to such an extent you’ll be convinced to join NUFC

    The owner has shown the world he is not prepared to invest in new players for the club so what players with any ambition would join us

    how many decent players in the UK or Europe would join our club having seen us play for the last 18 months

    How many decent players would want to join a club who have publicly declared their ambition to end up tenth.

    How many players would want to join a club whose squad is getting smaller by the minute.

    and we wonder why JFK hasn’t signed anyone yet!!!!!

    even though he is a complete and utter moron, I doubt any DOF in the world could attract players to us right now

    Wynsleap – we’ve known all along Ashley likes
    To do things on the cheap however last January was a good window by my book, a striker short but a positive window which is a rarity.

    It has to be said that the FCB chants heard at Morecambe won’t really encourage Ashley to spend despite us wanting him to know how we still feel. If the window closes without signings and we lose against Villa i fear he’ll will break loose.

    Also its sickening how much Liverpool have improved they strangled Man Utd today would love us to go out and just work that hard to close teams down at home

    We should have done that right from the start against West Ham and Fulham

    Villa will be a test but we should send out our front 4 and try and hound them because they are good going forward but they are still shite at the back

    Santon – I think we’re so tight it’s becoming very counter productive. Yes we spent 60 million in two years but last season proved if was enough

    The fan base isn’t united. We are all pulling in different directions.

    Needless to say I think ridding of ourselves of the cockney trio by any means necessary is the correct course of action.

    I reckon 40-60% of fans agree.

    It needs to be 80-90% or this will go on for years and years.

    I’ve been doing my job and we have over achieved this window if you recognise the hard work that goes on behind the scenes. It could be less players but we have maintained and rejected sales.

    I’m even communicating to the fans via this blog and embracing tech like this voice to speech app. Looking forward to a stronger season ahead.

    Deactivate. There, that should keep the mob down. S**t where did I park. Designated driver bulls**t where’s my f**cking pint eh? Can’t see s**t up here, f**cking freezing up north. Ash better stick to the – stupid phone still beeping – f**k off!

    Wasn’t enough* damn it. Still lacking a striker,
    Winger and a cb in my opinion and that’s before anyone leaves.

    Perch – out
    Simpson – out
    Harper – out

    Remy – in on loan

    I wonder how Carr feels. I wonder if he was aware of Ashley’s ambition, or apparent lack of, before he signed his 8 year contract.

    Even I would be shocked and stunned if this is it for the summer window, so much talk and little to no action.

    3 players released and 2 sold.
    2 players in (1 undisclosed amount for development and 1 loan).

    Excellent. Moving and poignant. Can break every Geordie heart.
    Unfortunately Ashley doesn’t have one!

    Its just so annoying is that Ashley has not figured how to run this football club properly and if we were doing well he would not get any grief and his other brands would benefit from it as well he has took so much bad advice that there is probably going to be no way back

    We should have been studying Dortmund Porto and Ajax as the blueprints and went and got the proper coaches scouts and facilities to deliver this

    Also should have properly engaged the fans (not the fanatical ones that go mental after one game)but the rational thinkers to try and build something together but can never happen now

    Either that put all of our efforts into winning the Carling Cup this season and he could pretty much walk over us for the next 20 years as everyone would be too happy too care ha ha

    We are not signing anybody. After the fulham game, Ashley must have thought no new addition is required as we got 3 points.

    I would say 90% of fans don’t want Ashley here and it is 60/40 on Pardew with me being in the 40 against Pards.

    Although on the blog it seems like more people want Pardew gone. Ed I would like to see a poll on if people want Pardew gone if you get a spare 5 minutes.

    We will win f@ck all squared with the Fat Controller in charge. West Brom, Arsenal and Newcastle United the only teams left to spend nothing. Arsenal will apparently spend big on Ozil tomorrow, leaving us in the esteemed company of the only team in the league not to score a goal thus far this season. Ambition indeed.

    Juve with 17 m bid on Nainggolan and Inter with late bid on Boudebouz. And we said no to Sow some reports say. Ayew played tonight. Thauvin to Marseille and Tottenham wants to loan back Ince. And Gomis looks dead.

    Obertan to Nottingham on loan might indicate we have some deal line up. Not looking good at moment.

    The worst thing is, if we sign nobody all the majority will do is bitch and moan on Twitter and this blog and still turn up each and every week to support the team AND the regime.

    Can all the fans keep standing outside of SJP & inside the stadium during the match & asking MA, JKF & AP to step down???

    We all can see MA is killing our club! Yup, he has made a financial structure since he arrived but he has no ambition to make us get stronger! We can see how other PL clubs which is smaller than us is doing way better than us

    And it is meaningless to buy any new players somehow bcos AP knows nothing on tactics but excuses only. Our gameplay is sXXt. His game plan is totally outdated. He never make our players improved from training.

    Mike Ashley is the handler.

    Pardew is the sheepdog.

    The fans are the sheep.

    Ashley whistles, Pardew barks, the sheep bleat and are moved into the pen.

    Ashley bringing in Kinnear is a master stroke on his part. When the window slams shut at 11:pm on Monday night he is hidden away whilst Kinnear the Scapegoat takes all the flak for not bringing anyone in.

    If that is the case we have been strung along for the best part of two momths now. Total Joke unless you are Kinnear, gets a salary cushy job and a holiday FFS.

    Also Alan Pardew gets to hide behind Kinnear.

    Sparky, good analysis of the game on the other thread. Papering over the cracks it certainly is. I noticed the sly one soaking in the applause at the end as well too, rather than the usual spineless act of straight down the tunnel.

    The winning goal was simply an act of individual brilliance. Teamwork nowhere to be seen, yet Pardew laps it up and even has the nerve to find a couple of public criticisms of the lad, when he should be offering cheeseburgers in a brown paper bag (like in Menace To Society) for Ben Arfa.

    Benny has just saved him for a little bit longer until he hopefully leaves the club and takes his lower league football brain and lies with him.

    repost from previous thread

    Off topic but I have been a supporter for over 20 years and the family and I are making our first ever pilgrimage to Newcastle at Christmas. Looking for ideas on places to stay, getting match tickets (vs Arsenal on the 28th), other things to see and do. Anyone that can help let me know at scott@lytlelaw.ca
