Ambitious Players Now Becoming Unsettled By Ashley’s Rigid Intransigence


There has been no communication coming from Newcastle since the last game of the season back on May 12th.

So we don’t know if Rafa is going to stay at Newcastle or not.

And it’s been reported that a contract is on the table for him to sign but that Ashley has not given much ground – if any – on the way transfers are handled at the club.

That’s one of the big things Rafa wanted to change if he was to agree to stay at the club.

And there is an ongoing takeover going on by Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed al-Nahyan and his Bin Zayed Group, but Newcastle have refused to comment on it.

Ayoze Perez – stuck at Newcastle right now

So with the players returning from their summer break three weeks on Thursday, there is once again massive uncertainty at Newcastle.

The fans are very frustrated that we don’t know what’s really going on behind the scenes.

And it’s hardly surprising that frustration is starting to happen with some of our players.

Salomon Rondon has no idea if Newcastle want to sign him this summer.

And after a fabulous season at Newcastle Ayoze Perez is looking at the possibility of leaving the club and maybe returning to Spain.

There is interest in the former Spanish U21 International with Napoli, Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid, Valencia, and Tottenham Hotspur all linked with the player we signed for €2M from Tenerife five years ago.

Perez has every right to be asking what’s going on at Newcastle with the 25-year-old wanting to make some career decisions.

All he sees at Newcastle is what he’s seen over the last five years with owner Mike Ashley – chaos and confusion.

Perez cannot even talk to clubs becasue Newcastle haven’t a manager who can make decisions right now, and the ownership of the club could be about to change.

Radio Cope in Madrid are reporting that Valencia have already held discussions with the 25-year-old’s agent recently.

And Perez is quoted as being “delighted” at the opportunity to play at Valencia and has told friends he is open to the move back to Spain.

But how much longer will this nonsense continue this summer at Newcastle?

Mike Ashley needs to do some communicating about what’s going on at Newcastle.

That’s part of his responsibility as the Newcastle owner – he just doesn’t seem to know that.

Comments welcome.

    Mind, you have to say after being our top scorer two seasons in a row he has to be classed as one of our better players.

    OP,
    Considering the Chronicle have just had to publish a takeover and transfer recap which tells us absolutely nothing, I doubt it very much.

    Well it looks like ashLIE had a one way trip to Southend Airport yesterday, wonder why? (Pick up from Elstree aerodrome and taken to Southend, then chopper returns to High Wycombe). Maybe he was picking up some Arabs?

    As Keegan said “Would love it ” mate if we did get the news we are all craving to hear.I don’t think it helps however with all the Gobshites on social media making out they basically know nowt.
    “I’m hearing this” “Been told that” blah blah blah.
    If it happens great I’ll be back at SJP.If not then I’ll continue to stay away bud

    OP,
    I thought what with the lack of Islamic holidays and weddings, the weekend out of the way in Blighty and the forms allegedly submitted to the PL weeks ago that we might have had an announcement yesterday. Wtf have those signs been taken down.

    I dont like to post without hearing first hand info from BZG. Spoken with the office of Midhat Kidwai this morning, and I was given a firm no comment – when I pushed if it was on or off, no comment. As soon as there is an update there will be a statement #NUFCTakeover

    Ayoze has been talking about leaving, and playing for Spain for a long time. It makes sense for him to go to Valencia.

    On his day he’s a very talented boy but he also had lots of games which saw him fall down at the slightest contact and sulk.

    Shame to see him go but he’s not irreplaceable. Of course it’s still just paper talk.

    Mind you even if we see him standing holding a Valencia shirt I’m sure our ‘club’ will have no comment to make.

    Jazzy,
    There was guy on twitter yesterday posting info on the workings of the takeover in a style that could literally have only come from one of the lawyers sitting face to face with the opposition lawyers. I thought hang on a minute??? Then in one of the tweets he has to admit, when pressed about the advertising that it was just guess work.

    Perez is one of those players who tends to drop to the
    level of those around him.
    If he was in a top drawer team he would excel.

    Rahim Sterling has looked sensational for Man City for
    the last few seasons – he’s looked fairly average in a
    very limited England set up.

    droppy,
    The trouble is though if he does go it will be made more likely that’s it’s because Rafa is gone, in turn if Rafa is gone we won’t be signing Rondon, Ritchie will likely be cashed in on and they have to give Hayden his move. That leaves a new manager less than five weeks to form a midfield and strike pairing from players foisted on him by Churnley.
