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.

    I’m not impressed at all by Mark Douglas’/Chronicles excuses for blanking the recent BZG news. He’ll only report what he can ‘at lesst’ double source ? Rubbish! He’s repeatedly reported anonymous whispers from someone at Nufc that the ‘O&D tests’ haven’t even started (which BZG publicly contradict).

    Clearly he has no sources at BZG and none in Ashleys inner circle. Theres probably only Charnley or some other Ashley minion who will tell him off the record whatever todays official line is.

    In the absence of any sources or investigative skills the Chron just wants to write the usual transfer rubbish and fiction and treat the takeover as a ‘distraction’. Its not. Its the single most important issue to resolve at Newcastle right now. Everything else flows from that. The Chron doesnt seem to get that.

    Maybe frustration is making me too hard on them and of course I shouldn’t be shooting the messenger when Ashley is the problem. Still, The Chron really have not served Newcastle fans well here and show no sign of imoroving.

    Mikey says if Pardew doesn’r agree to that new 10 year contract today…

    He’ll give him until the day after the transfer windows ends.

    And that’s a definite, absolutely definite, may be.

    Mikey knows we need to get a move on.

    You care more about not being able to ram this takeover and Mikey doing the right thing down our throats than you do about what good could come of it.

    Weeks of ex managers and cockey spivs laughing at us should be lovely. Souness, Sam, The orange palace cnut, Bellamy, Karen Brady ( you still would though 🙂 ) , any others that can be added to the list of bastards ? Im a bit tired chaps so I cant think of mnay , but there are loads. I suppose we cant forget Rio, Denis the Menace. Come on chaps, lets build a Toon Army bonfire of bastards. Might keep us amused in these worrying times.

    Goes to show what Jib knows. Prattling on about Labour being 4th and needing to get rid of JC.

    • Labour lead by 2% (Surv)
    • Labour lead by 2% (Opin)
    • Labour lead by 3% (ComR)
    • Labour lead by 6% (Delta)
    • Labour lead by 1% (BMG)

    Yes, time to get rid of the opposition “leader”. Why? because the Mike Ashley disciple, Jib, said so.

    What’s interesting is what a clueless piece of crap Ashley actually is. Has one MO – pile high/sell cheap. Abuses the Eastern manufacturing even today in 2019, gets away with it because CAPITALISM.

    Bought Game when Google, Apple, Microsoft and Sony have all announced how heavily they are investing in direct streaming and online content. The next gen consoles will have vast capacity and 5G/superfast fibre reaching many parts means the need to physically go to a shop and buy a game is as dead as HMV’s notion on CD’s.

    The man’s a grada ‘a’ moron. We’ve all met a lot of wealthy folk, but you tend to find the one trick pony’s are typically 1) thick, and 2) sociopathic (i.e. would sell their own mother for a decent profit). He’s running the Toon with the same ignorant, thick as pig poop attitude. Clueless, yet so self-absorbed and sociopathic that has no interest in others’ opinion or the fan base itself. Karma will come back on this fat moron – I predict bankruptcy within 5 years.

    I’m starting to doubt there’ll be any announcement at all. Gut feeling is telling me he’s just laughing at us and appoint some thick skinned manager who needs the money and nowt else. Do BZG have to announce anything.. I doubt it ccompanies
