There’s a danger that under Mike Ashley’s strategy. Newcastle will never become a big club to go up against the top six clubs in England, and that’s because Mike just doesn’t seem willing to spend the money required to make Newcastle into a top team.
Mike Ashley – not ambitious enough for Newcastle fans
That’s not to say we haven’t brought in some very good players while Ashley has been the owner, but there have been too many times that we haven’t gone for it.
And we’ve failed to get our targets because of say a million pounds or even less than that, and we may have been too stubborn in refusing to pay a little bit more for a top target.
But we now have a decent squad, and it will be even stronger if we can nail down a certain Loic Remy to a permanent contract in January, although in our poll pm this, 63% don’t think we will be successful in signing this top striker.
Maybe the solution is to somehow persuade Mike Ashley to spend all of Newcastle profits on the club. in terms of new players, and investing into the training facilities. the Youth Academy and the Scouting Network, which to be fair has become a lot stronger than it used to be.
And we know there are groups who want Ashley out – but he will simply not sell - and be careful for what you ask for – and he already knows he’s not popular with Newcastle fans, and probably never will be.
Vincent Tan – Cardiff owner
After all. we could get a new owner like as one example – Cardiff City owner – Malaysian Vincent Tan – who took over earlier in the year.
And he immediately changed the famous blue strips of the Bluebirds to red – which is a popular color in Asia, and the new owner wants to call them the Dragons (can they still be called the Bluebirds?) – and he thinks the reason Cardiff were promoted was because of the lucky red strip he introduced.
If we get an owner from Asia – as one example – maybe he’ll change the strips to red and white stripes. and call us the Red Devils, and that sounds almost as bad as the Black Cats.
Then what would we do?
Let’s hope the lads can shock us on Saturday and beat Liverpool, we are still positive that Newcastle can do well this season.
What do you think?
