Lots Of Support From Fans For Amanda Staveley As New Newcastle Owner


Newcastle fans are excited about the possibility – and that’s all it is at the moment – of Amanda Staveley buying Newcastle United from current owner Mike Ashley.

Just think all those Sports Direct Adverts and signs at St. James’ Park that would have to go – but it may take a week at least to get rid of them all.

It’s a nice thought anyway.

While we have to remember that Mike Ashley has said nothing yet he could kill the potential deal in many different ways; one is to say he’s not selling, another is to ask far too high a price – and we could be back to square one.

Amanda Staveley – potential Newcastle United owner

But with that in mind, there’s no reason why we can’t dream.

Here are some of the dreamers.

Steve – the answer is yes!

    Whilst I have seen a few posts commenting on the attractiveness of Mrs Staveley, I have yet to see anything that qualifies the statement “most toon fans become pervy creeps”. Whoever Kerry is, shes a cee yoo en tee.

    I genuinely believe that if Ashley dud sell, especially to a big hitter, that he will want the SD banners/advertising to be left for a certain time period.

    He may think the newfound positivity towards the club will further showcase his company.

    I just hope if a sale does go through we keep the name, rid the SD advertising and ban the sod from the ground.

    Win a cup in my lifetime would be nice…..

    Ashleys said he would,nt sell until we win something, but then again Ashley tells porkies. Would love to see this pretty lady running our club instead of the fat leech .

    All of the tax fraud referred to by HRMC
    was under the Llambias regime.
    An enquiry about the same thing was underway in
    season 2011/12 but DL wriggled out of it.
    They now believe he concealed e-mails
    I don’t think there would be many tears shed by
    Toon fans if slippery Dek was done retrospectively.
    It’s just a shame that the good name of the club gets tarnished
    I hope HRMC make a better fist of this than they did with
    Harry Redknapp esq.

    @WLtoon: We won the championship twice, two friendly trophies, and he’s soon to win an almighty rollicking from HMRC.

    Let’s just say he’s kept to his word and cross his fingers.

    When the article mentions liquidation, my heart sank. As if our long standing club could cease to be due to the current owner is disgusting. Go take it out on his personal fortune! He is the owner, the buck stops with him.

    This is why Ashley and Penfold are in a panic. There is no escape from forensic documented evidence.

    Well, it looks like we’re screwed. Might as well start looking for another club to follow, because NUFC looks doomed. HMRC seem convinced Ashley and co are fully aware and to blame for all of it. Once they they want you, they get you. So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    R.i.p. Newcastle Utd.

    Well, well, well. Tax fraud. What an exciting new enterprise Mikey! Just another day of trying to break the law. And with Lee Lickspittle Charnley to help out what could go wrong? So Mikey is so poor he has to try and evade proper tax payments, even VAT! Hilarious. I think it might be time to stock up on your KY jelly supplies Mikey. Prison could be somewhat painful otherwise.

    And weren’t there issues about dodgy tax manipulations while Mikey was an owner at Rangers? No….. it just has to be a coincidence.

    You have to laugh.

    On the one hand we could be getting new investment / owner, or, we now could be facing liquidation?

    Who said international breaks are boring?

    By the way, where did the Arsenal blog get that info? Is that legit? Doesn’t tie in with what HRMC said on the SS article.

    http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11678/11066738/newcastle-lose-high-court-challenge-regarding-document-seizure

    An HMRC spokesperson has told Sky Sports News: “We are very pleased with the court’s decision, which we are studying in detail.

    “We do not comment on individual cases or ongoing investigations.”

    Dondatta and Shire
    That Arsenal shite-stirring is pretty much based
    on Rob Davies article in the Guardian.
    They are sailing close to the wind because – much
    as some folk would like it – Mike Ashley is not implicated at all.
    As for it resulting in NUFC liquidation – they wish !
    As with modern day football and tax matters the big Q is
    Is it avoidance or evasion ?
    The former is allowed – the latter frowned upon.
    I doubt it will get to court
    These matters are normally solved by the payment of a few
    hundred grand and a promise to behave in the future

    Who would touch us now? Theres a possibility most of the transfers under Mash are dodgy. Ba’s will cost us 1.2 mil, so imagine how much nufc could end up having to pay back. I really think its over. Tragic, and disgusting that the fat man has brought us to this.

    “HMRC’s allegations relate to transfers made during the tax years from 2010-13, when Charnley was football secretary and Derek Llambias was Newcastle’s managing director. It said Newcastle had been subject to a tax inquiry in 2011-12 but was believed not to have disclosed all relevant emails. Griffiths said he now believed all payments made by the club to agents were potentially the subject of criminal proceedings.”

    I can’t see us facing liquidation over this. The club would have to declare itself insolvent, which would lead to a possible 12 point deduction which could lead to another relagation. That’s what happened to Portsmouth a few years back wasn’t it? But we won’t be insolvent because of the tax evasion. So cheer up lads, we’re probably only going to get relegated again which will make Amanda Panda lose interest and Rafa leave the club in disgust! You see? There’s always a silver lining lads…..

    The thing that really concerns me is that these charges are against the Club as a whole – not just those involved (Charmless and Llambeezee).

    On the flipside, it’s up to HMRC and it’s investigators to prove that NUFC made those payments “with full knowledge”. As Markaccus says, if the club is found guilty, it’s done. We’ll very likely go the way of Rangers.

    Anybody up for Gateshead away?

    @GeordieTwo: That depends on whether or not we’ll be able to actually pay off the fines and back payments.

    I deal with HMRC a lot at work (which means that I have a horrible knowledge of the power they hold), and in cases where payments have been deliberately concealed (twice!), they can issue a penalty notice of up to 100% the missed payments. If deemed that it was done in error, the maximum penalty drops to 30%.

    I still don’t understand the liquidation bit. Why would we be liquidated? It sounds like a Matt Helm movie. Do they send a team of hit men to do the dirty then? Can anyone point out an article that explains it clearly? Rangers had all kinds of financial troubles as well as being caught in tax fraud etc. And with Mikey in there “helping out” it was bound to become a disaster. What does Mr. Llambeezee have to say about all this? I imagine he’s hard to find for a quote right now but as Senior Official Club Journo I intend to sniff him oot!!!

    I think we could survive payment of fines and penalties on many millions of pounds now that we’re in the Prem couldn’t we Thump? Mikey will suddenly find the cash in his old gardening pants I’m sure. Especially if a real offer comes in to brighten his greedy little piggy eyes.

    What a kick in the nuts!
    And without any ands ifs or buts!
    We’re going down the usual route
    With Mikey in charge it’s always a hoot!
    Right in the nuts, yes the nuts
    With the tax man in charge it’s the nuts!
    It serves Mikey right for going astray
    But Amanda might come and save the day!
    This can be sung quietly while weeping lads. I’m working on verse two now.

    But Mikey has good lawyers Ibiza and the rich never go to prison anymore. That’s a well known fact. How many thieving bankers went to prison in 2008/2009? None that I’m aware of.

    the club would receive nothing more the a substantial fine and a demand for the said tax+any vat due plus any interest incured
    individuals however may not be so lucky if the court finds they gained by said fraud

    the biggest problem would be the FA’s view of the proceedings and the final judgement in any trial
    a points deduction or even relegation could be deemed a suitable punishment

    we all know how much they love us

    Now take a look at the CEO of Ingenious and count the scam/shell companies used to launder, steal and move money offshore and the footy players get away without paying their taxes.
    This goes way beyond the TOON unfortunately folks.

    Now you know why Ashley, Penfold and lambs arse are in a tizzy.
