The Fans Forum planned for tonight was canceled by Newcastle yesterday giving everybody just one day’s notice.
It was reported in the Mail, and it’s another it’s another example of poor management from the top.
It’s probably because of the protests against Mike Ashley which apparently will take place on Northumberland Street outside the Sports Direct store before every home game this season?
We suspect another reason it was canceled was linked to the protests.
It’s going to be difficult to explain to the members how come we essentially made a net profit of over £20M in the transfer window.
Questions on why Rafa hasn’t signed a new deal would also be difficult for Lee Charnley to answer – on behalf fo Mike Ashley.
Managing Director Lee Charnley has shied away from difficult situations in the past,.
He still seems to be hoping the problem with Peter Beardsley will somehow magically go away.
Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley
It won’t, and he needs to make a decision on that issue sooner rather than later.
Rafa has sympathy with the fans but doesn’t want demonstrations to take place during home games at St. James’ Park.
This lack of courage also is displayed in the transfer market, who are reticent to go in and pay the going rate for new players.
Mike Ashley prefers the club to have a good bank balance, but that hampers the type of team Rafa can put out on the pitch.
This is another sign of the lack of courage and determination coming from the executive management of the club.
