Frank de Boer has been saying he will come out with a statement soon about what his future intentions are, and that’s what he has done today.

Frank de Boer – will honor his Ajax contract

And as half expected Frank de Boer will not be leaving Ajax this summer, and has committed his immediate future to the Dutch powerhouse.

This is what Frank said at his press conference today:

“I spoke this morning to the club and Marc Overmars. The players heard in training, and the staff already knew,”

“I think Ajax deserve to have clarity. I wanted that myself, too. There’s a good foundation at Ajax. I still see a lot of perspective.”

“There’s a good foundation, a lot of young players with long contracts. I still don’t feel I’m done here.”

“Liverpool can call Marc or my agents, or another club. But they’ll hear ‘no’. At this moment, nothing is going on,”

“Last year it was, and then I said I would think about it. Ajax asked me to give clarity before March 1, and I thought I was obliged to do that.”

Frank de Boer has won the Dutch Championship every season since he took over Ajax in 2010, after of Martin Jol resigned.

But this season Ajax are currently in second place behind PSV, and after 24 games played they are a massive 14 points behind PSV.

Safe to say that Ajax will not win the Eredivisie this season – so that’s a good target for Frank – win it for the fifth time in six attempts next season.

Newcastle have been closely linked with Frank de Boer since Alan Pardew walked out of the club afetr the win at home to Everton, and Frank was a huge favorite with Newcastle fans.

But he will not be coming to Newcastle this summer – that’s definite now.

We have a sneaking suspicion that Remi Garde will get the nod in the summer.

    On Jonas being back in the squad shows how awful we are. All credit to Jonas for everything he has overcome he beat one of the hardest battles known to man.

    On a purely football basis he was absolute dog shite 2 years ago, no way has he got better. Imagine him and Gouff in the same team fcuk that has to be the worst attacking team in the world.

    Jonas seems to be loved all round so offer him a new contract on a coaching basis fcuk we gave Steve Tone one so why not.

    It’s hard to think of something positive to say about the club right now. Suggesting we’re going to get a good man to come in as head coach surely is a bit of a joke. Why would a decent football man want to work for Ashley with his track record?

    It will be the Ashley Clown Show again next season. If we barely avoid relegation Johnny C. will have to be replaced. Even Mike will figure that one out to save the TV money. But who will come in? My bet is on someone like Krusty the Klown.

    Ashley has kept alive the FDBoer story until the Season Ticket renewals have been completed. Now the money is in the bank ( Ashley’s pocket ) De Boer can confirm that he was never going to join a Premier League club unless it was involved in Europe – hence the hopeful note about Liverpool for the future. Newcastle’s alleged interest will have just allowed him to secure a better deal at Ajax .

    Carver has included Jonas in the squad possibly and understandably to allow him his final appearance for the Toon but more likely because he may need to bring him on to change the atmosphere if things go wrong against Villa in the hope that will save Carvers own skin. Nothing less than 3-0 tomorrow will do.

    Did anyone else see that item about Black Plague being brought to Europe by giant Asian gerbils? I could just see Mike Ashley riding into the Toon on a giant Asian gerbil.

    Is it possible to recover from an attack of Ashleyitis? We’re in the 8th year now. I feel very weak. Drained of energy. My enthusiasm for footy has been sucked out of me by the giant fat parasite who owns us. How much longer can we survive?

    Do you think if Ashley takes in enough cash he’ll actually explode like that poor sod in Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life? That would certainly cheer me up no end.

    No on second thought, Krusty would turn us down.

    With the amount of TV money coming in and a ground that holds over 50,000 and at least some commercial revenue what should we be spending on incoming players? I think about 25M per year (both windows). What do we spend right now? It’s not zero if you average it out over a few years but it is a quite small amount. Is it 10M pounds or so? I can’t be bothered trying to calculate. Cabella cost us 12M and Riviere was 6 M last summer but then we actually turned a profit in January. We spend 19M on incoming to get 5 players in the previous January window but then spent almost nothing that summer. I’m guessing our outlay on players is about 10M a year. Not nearly enough when you consider our lack of decent CB’s and experienced strikers alone.

    I’d love to see another financial analysis of our club by the Swiss Rambler (was that his name?). I’m just interested in finding out how much profit we are generating per year now. It has to be at least 30M?

    From Deloitte’s:
    Newcastle United 2014 revenue: 129.7 M pounds (up a whopping 35%)
    Broadcast revenue: 78.2 M pounds (up 53%!)
    Commercial revenue: 25.6 M pounds (up 50% but still poor as an income source).
    Back in the top 20 for the money league again. Where exactly is the money going since it’s apparently not being used to pay off our debt to Mike?

    Revenue of almost 130M pounds and we can’t spend more than about 10M pounds a year on average on incoming players?

    Unbloody believable. 130M pounds in revenue and we don’t even have a manager. And we have no ambition other than mid table.
