Like many Newcastle fans, former Newcastle striker Mick Quinn has never particularly liked Newcastle owner Mike Ashley.
And maybe that’s a huge understatement.
The truth is that Mike’s 10-year reign as Newcastle’s supremo has been little short of a disaster,.
We have finished in the top 9 of the Premier League only once and have been relegated twice – the only times we have been relegated from the Premier League since we joined back in 1993 when Kevin Keegan was the manager.
Mick has also brought out a hilarious video of why anybody interested in Newcastle should buy them.
Yesterday Mick was again on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT.

He had this to say about Mike Ashley and the possible takeover of the club by the well-respected financier Amanda Staveley:
“I hope he goes.”
“This lady (Amanda Staveley), she tried to buy Spurs, tried to buy Liverpool.”
“Newcastle I think is a fantastic club to buy.”
“You’ve got a guaranteed 52,000 people there.”
“It’s in the city-center.”
“There’s so many pluses to buying Newcastle United. “
“They’re back in the Premier League.”
“I hope this consortium goes through and Ashley just gets out.”
A huge majority of Newcastle fans are really hoping this deal goes through, and then we’ll have a great manager and an excellent owner.
What can stop us then?
