There have been a number of reports out recently that have challenged Newcastle to sign Loic Remy, and by that show the club has some ambition to become a top club in England again.
Loic Remy – I just scored a last minute winner!!!!
And they are right on the mark, because a major reason players like Jose Enrique, Demba Ba and more recently Yohan Cabaye have left Newcastle, is that they cannot meet their ambitions at a club, that is content on being in the top ten in the Premier League.
For a club with the rich history of Newcastle United – how exciting is that?
Not very exciting, and when you see the fantastic 50,000 crowd that turned out last Sunday to cheer our lads on – after they had lost the last five home games – and won one of the last nine games in all competitions, it makes you want to cry that Mike Ashley runs the club like he does.
And if Newcastle continue in this direction then any good player we get in or develop – such as Cabaye – will eventually leave the club – and Newcastle will stay a selling club – which is what we are now.
If ever a club and its faithful fans deserved an ambitious owner, it’s Newcastle United.
And with Ashley putting it out that he will take around £250M to sell the club, then maybe some Billionaire in Russia or in the Persian gulf, or even in America will see that, and maybe make a bid for the club.
If that doesn’t happen, then we hope the Mike Ashley will get some ambition in his heart for Newcastle, because he’s shown precious little of that in the almost seven years he has owned the club.
With Newcastle likely to get a massive £80M from the Premier League in May, that’s £40M more than we got last year – and since we made a profit in the last financial year, there’s every reason to believe we could make around £40M profit in this financial year.
If Mike Ashley would only spend the profits that will be coming into the coffers of Newcastle over the next few years – there’s a good chance we could build a top side.
But to do that the owner of the club has to be willing to try to get Newcastle as a top four club again in England, and the sad news is that we haven’t seen any sign of that from Mike Ashley.
However, if Newcastle can sign Loic Remy permanently – that would be a good first step in getting Newcastle back to being one of the best sides in England.
That’s exactly what Geordie fans want to see – so come on Newcastle – show some ambition.
Or should that be – come on Mike Ashley – show some ambition?.
