There’s news tonight that Newcastle owner Mike Ashley plans to attend the game at St. James’ Park tomorrow, in what is likely to be a crowd furious with the Newcastle owner, who have staged protests against Ashley over the last few games – and plan a sit-in protest at the end of tomorrow’s game.
Mike Ashley – will attend game tomorrow
While the protests have taken p[lace Mike Ashley has wisely stayed away but it looks like he’ll be in the Director’s box tomorrow with his Managing Director Lee Charnley – who has done absolutely nothing to try to stop the startling fall down the table of the team.
A Newcastle insider has told various papers:
“It’s a huge game – one of the biggest in years – and Mike feels it’s important he comes up to give his support to the management and the players.”
We just hope that his move can turn out to be a positive one for Carver and the players – but it’s like pouring gasoline onto a fire – and Newcastle fans tomorrow must get right behind the players.
However, if things go against us and say we go behind – the crowd could turn on the owner, which we really hope will not happen.
The number one goal for Newcastle tomorrow is to stay in the Premier League and if we can do that we at least have the summer to try to rebuild the squad and spend some big money.
Both the Express and the People are reporting that Ashley is furious that Newcastle are in this position (that would be a surprise at all), and he is ready to tell Carver at the end of the game – thanks, but a new coach will be brought in.
And the Express and People are both reporting it will be a foreign coach and not Steve McClaren, who has already turned Newcastle down twice.
Mike being at the game is very risky – but we do hope the fans will support the lads on the field and not be distracted negatively by the presence of the owner.
To give a little praise to the owner, which is very rare for us – it’s a gutsy move by Mike Ashley – and if it inspires the players – it may even pay off.
Bottom line tomorrow – we need to get a win tomorrow and save ourselves.
Howay The Lads!!
