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.

    If they knew that Rafa was leaving in May the only conceivable reason that they never told us was to discredit him and have fans cursing HIM for not letting us know. The only reason I can think Rafa never told us himself was that he was still under contract and you wouldn’t put it past Ashley to sack him leaving a stain on his CV.

    Robleenio, re the Spencer lad on Twitter. That’s not Dummet’s agent – that’s clearly a kid. This is who people are confusing him with.

    That Spencer is NOT the agent – this one is, and he’s said nothing about the takeover.

    Hate to burst anyones bubble but the Darren Carter lad is also a fantasist. See his ‘conversations with Midhat’ tweet for confirmation of that.

    Was on talking to lad i’m working with about it this morning, i mentioned that spencer kid talking about it on twitter and how much shite he was spouting. Lad dropped in he had just been to vegas last week with him. I’ve getting my self mixed up there i think. I tried asking him if he has heard any thing, even though i think he has, he squashed me flat.
    Showed him my whatapp i got last night and his response was a simple not and that he would msg him. I’ll post here if he says anything else.
    He changed subject sharpish

    The lack of info from the slug and his Arse wipes shows the total lack of respect he has for the fans.
    Shambolic is not a strong enough word,to describe the mess the club is in at the moment.
    I do hope there is a big enough boycott takes place to show the world how the fans feel.
    ASHLIE OOT.
