Chronicle Writer Responds To Silence On BZG Statement


Mark Douglas has responded to criticism of the Chronicle’s silence yesterday on the statements issued by BZG through Capital Radio’s Peter Redding.

Yesterday, it was Keith Downie who had responded about Sky Sports’ lack of coverage.

Here is a series of tweets from Mark Douglas:

This is excellent from Mark Douglas and a response from the Chronicle was necessary at this point. Mark is pointing out that he has contacted BZG but has yet to hear back from them.

He was also very respectful to Peter Redding, who released the statement on Twitter. Mark emphasizes that he has his doubts as the information is not really new and the avenue chosen was very unorthodox.

The Chronicle is still maintaining that the owner’s and director’s test has yet to occur which contradicts the statement released yesterday.

Mark Douglas is absolutely correct though that the state of this club at the moment is of paramount importance. Newcastle, with just a month left before the transfer window slams shut, have made no signings and have no manager.

They are the only club in the Premier League in this predicament and the people who run this club must be held to account.

Mark also did respond in regards to the silence from Newcastle with the following tweet.


Newcastle United, it’s fans, and those who cover the club are in a state of disunity right now.

This duality at Newcastle is furthered by a club that continues to run in complete silence.

Fans are at odds with each other about boycotts and renewing season tickets.

Fans and journalists are divided on the state and legitimacy of the takeover.

This is a state that has been inflicted by Mike Ashley’s refusal to treat the fans with any amount of respect.

A simple statement would resolve some of the growing discontent and confusion surrounding this club.

Meanwhile, this club is in serious threat of relegation as they continue to fall further and further behind. If they don’t act soon this fall could be fatal.

    Guess what..Another day of going round in circles,Clutching at straws.
    Although the Josepoo not being able to leave because Mourinho liked him has got to be top of the pops as far as Bullsh@t goes

    JazzyP- that made me chuckle when I read yesterday. From what a gather from that article in Spain is that they believe Mourinho will indeed replace Rafa once he gets his assurances of transfer money. And the ridiculous claim that Mourinho might want to keep Joselu struck me as fear on Alaves’s behalf that they might miss their chance of signing him, that’s all.

    What I want to know is where is Joselu now? The two photos of him yesterday had him in Newcastle airport and another with a fan from Singapore. They could be old photos and Joselu could even be training this morning with the rest of the lads in NUFC.

    So where is Joselu??

    If we think that the fans effectively ARE the club. The spirit, the heart of the club,. Then we need to show unity in the face of the current absence of any spirit, of any heart in Newcastle United FC. If we are the club we need to show it. Our club is not this commercial parasite on the community. If we can’t understand that, then we are just customers doing some shopping, and Ashley thinks he knows what we are. I am not a customer in Ashley’s NUFC shop anymore. Are you?

    Mate it’s just getting ridiculous now ain’t it.Every Itk comes out of the woodwork when a rumour starts,And as time goes by the rumours become more bizarre.
    We’ve gone from believable to ridiculous within a matter of weeks,And what makes me laugh is lads are that desperate they still get sucked in.
    Oh to be a Toon fan eh!!

    The official site has just launched a load of extended highlights from last season.

    Somebody’s getting worried.

    Also it’s an own goal, look at all this action from our two top scorers playing under a top coach with excellent backroom staff.

    Come back this season for none of the same.

    And all this Helicopter gate conspiracies flying over SJP the other day.
    My source says that it was indeed Mike Ashley himself having a great big Sh@te over The ground for the very last time before Fakeover never happens.

    What we need to recruit is a team of folk who take action to support the cause.
    That’s why Crowd Funding was invented
    I’ve listed a few here but please feel free to add your own to strengthen the revolution

    Churchill as Director of Football
    Monty as Head Coach

    The first team:
    Mad Max -to deal with the fall out from no deal
    Bandit but with Carrie ( aka ‘Frog’ which is surprising ) – just because I like Sally Fields
    Kojak – to hunt down the bad guys (not a difficult task)
    Josey Wales – Law enforcement
    Joan Of Arc – in the interests of equality
    Robert The Bruce – on loan from Rangers and looking for a pay back
    Gazza – to give him a focus and pretend that Mike Ashley is Vinnie Jones so he can squeeze him where it hurts
    Bacon – well you wouldn’t want him on the other side, would you ?
    Elvis – singing “It’s now or never” as the Soundtrack
    Kermit – takes one to know one
    Ellen Ripley – she can spot an alien a mile away and knows how to deal with it

    Charley as MD should be empowered to communicate to fans and journos as he is running the club, except he’s not. He needs his puppet master to pull strings before he can take a piss. The Premier League should investigate how this club treats it’s fan base. It borders on abuse!

    So all of a sudden we get 22 updates from the club.
    None of which shed any light about a takeover or anything else.
    All released at 9.24.
    Somethings going on in the Press office for sure.

    JP.. from the rock
    If we couldn’t see Joselu during a 90 minute game on the pitch at SJP.. there’s nee chance of spotting him outside in the wide open spaces.
