Vast Changes Coming To The Look Of Newcastle United – Back To The Future


The Star is reporting today that Mike Ashley will make a clean break with Newcastle United if he sells the club to a consortium put together by Amanda Staveley, who leads the PCP Capital Partners financial group.

Since Mike arrived, he has put Sports Direct advertisements everywhere and anywhere the TV cameras go on a match day – even inside the ground where the players gather before they walk out onto the pitch.

With Sports Direct signs everywhere my wife, Madeline thought that Sports Direct was the actual owner of Newcastle – because of all the signs.

No, Mike Ashley owns Newcastle, and he also owns Sports Direct and has never paid one penny for the worldwide advertising he has received from the club over the last 10 years.

St. James’ Park – back to the future – looks very clean

Maybe Amanda Staveley should put a clause in her new bid and charge Mike for all that advertising over 10 years?

Maybe not.

Ashley even changed the name of St. James’ Park to the Sports Direct Arena for a while and that obviously really upset the fans.

We have put up a photo of St. James’ Park taken before 2007 – before the Mike Ashley era – and it looks very nice and very clean – thank you very much.

If Amanda Staveley is successful in her bid it will be the new Newcastle United.

YES!!

    Leeds’d be a good move for Jack given his desire to stay local. Anyway, you did Leeds and back in a morning by train? A minor miracle – it’ll be reported in the national news tonight!

    And

    Ibiza

    There are suggestions that today might be your birthday. I shan’t ask how many as it’s rude to do so. If it is your birthday, is it the real one or the official one?

    In any event, the island’ll be jumping at the weekend as hoards of revellers arrive to party with you. Make sure the ‘pharmacies’ are well stocked!

    Have a happy birthday.

    What with Hibbit’s success on the train and Ibiza’s birthday, they say good things come in threes so maybe we can expect to hear that Ashley’s agreed to PCP’s offer and is clearing the SJP fridges!

    Is it still Arriva? I remember when I moved to London there had just been a big train accident up near Hatfield and I think they switch to Arriva just after…

    That image of the stadium shows just what massive structures the Milburn, North West Corner and SJH stands are.
    Could the East Stand be made bigger.
    There is some space at the back of it before you get to Leazes Terrace.
    Not a lot, but some.

    Wayaman (I think) from previous thread

    Correct.

    That’s what I meant to put at the end of the post, that’s what I think the major holdup will be.

    Trying to sort out what he’s done would take time and a lot of patience. Unfortunately for us, it’s wearing thin (mine ran out 7 years ago) after being systematically abused for ten + years.

    It’d be like wading through a minefield, doubling back, shuffling to the side, carefully extracting the cover hoping to find the trigger, only in this case the club assets. Then trying to put them all back where they belong. With the fcuking club.

    Tsunki

    Aye, small potatoes. I wonder why he’s trying to keep them though…..

    Do you get off on calling people ‘c**ts’?

    Very charming.

    The leader of that ‘rob’ investigation I.e… Belfast. Admitted he was wrong.

    My picture is obvious proof that I’m not rob.

    So. Quit. Being. A. Dumbass.

    Afternoon

    To be fair to young mag… When belfast posted the link to Rob Vollans’ facebook page, Rob was a little chubby, balding with glasses. Young mag has had a few pics of himself, and they all look more or less like his current one. Pretty sure he isn’t Rob

    A picture of let’s face it anyone. On a blog. Where absolutely anything can be uploaded. Is proof?

    I’m not going anywhere. This blog is great for passing the time and for news related to Nufc. Nowhere else better.

    But that’s what happens when you live near Burnley and not in Newcastle. You rely on social media and blogs for interaction.

    I genuinely think you might have this one wrong, mate. Not trying to pick a fight. Vollans had 3 i.ds
    one was “take a chancel on me” another was “toon army from leeds” (or similar) and i can’t remember the other, but it was a final desperate attempt to hide after belfasts outed him

    Markaccus is correct. I’m not related to those monikers at all. Just check for yourself. I’ll post a Newcastle badge just to show you up even more.

    Young Mag, there’s a lot of pouting going on in those pictures….I’m not sure whether they prove that you’re a genuine Newcastle fan or just in touch with your feminine side.

    I’d also be interested to hear if Shire has any updates…

    The best way to make sure Ashley stays at the table is to nail his hands to it’s top where they’re visible.. At least it should limit any further damage and weakening of the Club.

    And some football related footage of David Attenborough on his travels

    Hibbit

    I’ve a feeling he can’t walk away now, too many false dawns too many other offers he’s rejected, he would end up stuck with us or having to take a massive hit on his so called investment in the future as it would all go pear shaped if he walks.

    I’d reckon pcp hold all the cards if there’s no one else willing to bid.

    the SD advertising would almost certainly be replaced with other advertising as the new owner is likely to want to generate income through advertising so it is unlikely that the stadium would return to the old clean look of little or no adverts if that used to be the case.
