Where Do We Put Her Statue If Amanda Staveley Buys Out Ashley?


The Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter today on news that Amanda Staveley met with Lee Charnley, Keith Bishop, and Justin Barnes in the Newcastle United Boardroom on Sunday after the game.

And as usual the fans are entertaining with some of their tweets – one of which talks about where we put her statue if she does buy Newcastle; that very good question comes from Karl Dawson.

Maybe that question is part of the negotiations?

🙂

Just think if she acquires Newcastle herself, and not for some consortium, we will have the best manager and the best-looking owner in English football.

That’s some combination right there.

Here are some of the comments today – we live in hope!

    Looks to me that our Ed has a wee soft spot for Amanda, he seems to be enjoying adding her picture to his articles 🙂

    Is it true Ed is moderating you because you have a statue of Ashley in your back garden holding a giant wooden spoon?

    Is the Tyrone Bartlett that scored for Port Vale against us last night the same one we supposedly signed last year from South Africa? Sean Bartletts son?

    All this talk of Amanda Stavelyey buying the club seems wide of the mark. She’s not the buyer, her clients are.
    Her modus operandi is as a dealmaker as her Wiki profile states. She is unlikely to be tapping up Rafa to return to Liverpool as that would be an illegal approach to another clubs manager and apart from compensation to Newcastle the FA would then have to throw the book at Liverpool and should deduct points or throw them out the league which might upset the paymasters at Sky. However it would give the Mackems a big match to play that’s if they’re not in a Division One by then.

    Amanda Louise Staveley (born 11 April 1973 near Ripon, North Yorkshire, England[1][3][4]) is a British businesswoman notable chiefly for her connections with Middle Eastern investors. In 2008 Staveley played a prominent role in the investment of £7.3 billion in Barclays by the ruling families of Abu Dhabi and Qatar, and by the Qatari sovereign wealth fund.[5] Staveley’s firm, PCP Capital Partners, acted for Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the Abu Dhabi royal family, who invested £3.5 billion to control 16 per cent of the bank. The deal was reported to have earned PCP Capital Partners a commission of £110 million, which, after paying advisers, represented a profit of £40 million.[6][7] Staveley was also involved in Sheik Mansour’s high-profile purchase of Manchester City Football Club in September 2008.[5]

    Staveley, who once described herself as “a dealmaker at heart”,[8] told The Guardian newspaper in 2008: “I’m just grateful to have been given the opportunities I’ve had so far. It’s not about money — it wouldn’t matter if I was making £8 million or £200 million. I just want to go to bed at night and say I’ve done a good job.”[4]

    After 3 days Geordies know more about Amanda than they do about their lasses or their own mother.

    We need a Referendum.
    Where do we put Amanda’s statue ?
    This could rival Rafa’s bingo every week.

    My nomination is for her statue to replace the Angel of the North which can be relocated to Tynemouth Priory

    lochinvar,

    She wouldn’t be doing anything illegal in ‘tapping up’ Benitez as she doesn’t represent a club as far as we know.

    You are correct in that her modus operandi is as a deal maker and not a buyer for herself our the company she works for.

    Knowing who she has represented in the past I therefore find it very hard to believe that she would be making approaches to the monkeys at the club and not the organ grinder unless of course she has already met Ashley which would be the most normal approach in her line of business and was given the go-ahead by him to meet those who run the show.

    Jib – the rest of the country can laugh at us but they can’t laugh with us.
    I doubt if any other blog or region for that matter can match our spirit, passion or self effacing humour. They’re a bunch of dullards in contrast to our spirited contribution to mankind and ladykind now that Amanda’s in town.

    How does the chant go ?

    We are the Geordies
    The Geordie boot boys
    And we are mental and we are mad
    We are the loyalest football supporters the world has ever had

    Interesting news. Richest man in Russia, Usmanov who owns 30% of Arsenal is apparently selling up and investing in Everton instead.

    Another club challenging tbe big 6 soon?

    See the club has lost their application for a Judicial Review re the documents/items seized by the taxman.
    Warrants were lawfully issued.

    Surely, the court ruling regarding the club documents could have an impact on any potential sale of the club.

    Lot of stuff amd nonsense being written when it can’t even be properly established whose guest (if anyone’s) she was. I presume she has the price of a ticket anyway. However, I will state the obvious truth, that she’s a lot easier on the eye that Mashley any day.

    I’m working in Liverpool bay at the moment, funnily enough there are a lot of Liverpool supporting scousers on the job. I have been asking all morning about the rumours about Rafa going back and none of them I’ve heard anything about it. Very telling that Jib and Slank would rather believe that we’re about to lose our manager than the thought of Ashley selling up.

    Dondatta – it certainly could do.
    If the club have been defrauding the taxman- giving secret bungs to players or agents it goes without saying that the club accounts may well have been doctored to hide the siphoning off of monies.
    Probably talking about a few million -not mega millions – but the question must be asked are the club accounts accurate/to be trusted.

    afternoon jesper.
    The matter is still ongoing.
    The taxman will be making further enquiries etc- obviously with a view to seeing whether there is sufficient evidence to charge any of those involved.
    No idea of the time frame involved – could be weeks, could be months before we hear any updates from the taxman.

    news this morning that the High Court has approved HMRCs raid on Newcastle and they(HMRC) can now start to examine the clubs financial records. If they have the books how on earth can due diligence be going on. This t/o is all Ashley pie in the sky
