Former Premier League Midfielder Puts Danny Mills In His Place

Danny Mills has appeared on talkSPORT and makes the common misconception that Newcastle fans expect too much.

The former England International made some questionable comments earlier about Newcastle in the wake of Rafa Benitez’s departure.

This is what Danny told Futbol Insider a few days after the June 24th announcement that Rafa Benitez would not return to Newcastle. The comments pertained to a player exodus at Newcastle:

“I think they will be able to keep them. They are not in a financial crisis where they need to sell. Mike Ashley is shrewd enough to look at it and run it as a business.

“Mike Ashley doesn’t need to sell and can keep his best players. It then depends on which managers come in and who he wants.

“I don’t think there is a brilliant player at Newcastle who lots of top clubs will want. There’s no-one in that squad who makes you say, ‘wow, he’s irreplaceable’. Who are the stars in that team?

“You have a nucleus of a decent squad and it needs three or four quality signings this summer. There no-one who can’t be replaced.”

Danny Mills has no clue about Mike Ashley. These comments suggest that Ashley is a normal owner just looking out for the best interest of his club.

This is categorically untrue. Mike Ashley doesn’t make any decision that is in the best interest of Newcastle United. Any suggestion otherwise is just incorrect. This isn’t an opinion.

Asserting that Mike Ashley is a normal owner is like saying two plus two doesn’t equal four. It’s just not debatable.

Danny is at it again but this time with the ridiculous claim, which often comes from the media, that Newcastle fans expect too much.

What a ridiculous comment to make. To suggest that Newcastle fans expectations are too high because they differ from that of the owner is just assinine.

An owner who is deliberately limiting the natural standing of this great club.

And to compare our situation to Bournemouth is beyond belief.

Well, we have had someone come out of the dark to tell it like it is. Yesterday it was Michael Chopra, a local lad.

Today it is former Norwich midfielder Darren Huckerby who did spend one year at Newcastle under Kevin Keegan.

This is his response to Danny Mills.

Thank you, Darren. This is the truth and it is beyond debate.

    Get Steve Howey on, as he actually knows what’s going on at Newcastle unlike the arse licking Ashley apologists.

    Can’t seem to find anything on search engine about ‘national sports app’ so very convenient that they have the same colours as sports direct.

    I realise i am clinging on to the slimest of slim hopes BUT until Mike Arse-Lie actually spends money then a takeover is still possible. I do (without any shred of evidence) think there is a buyer out there who has given Mike a take-it-or-leave-it offer and kept silent and is waiting for Mike to accept or decline (which means Mike then has to spend money to try and avoid relegation).

    But reality will kick in as soon as Bruce is confirmed.

    PS. Mills saying the fans expect ‘top 6’ is a lie. Surely someone needs to ask where he gets that from.

    For what’s worth

    Members of The Dubious Mickey Mouse Club???

    Dubai (Dubious) Mickey
    He gave me hope when we all needed it (Not his fault the Arab Prince was dealing with “Let’s move the goal posts Ashley”)

    Bam Bams
    Interesting and genuine posts!

    Offers a different perspective – but I’m not sure I’m on the same wavelength.

    No problems with him & found him helpful & constructive!

    Jail for Ashley
    Tells it the way he sees it. That’s his choice.


    Ditto re above.

    I’ve always respected his posts to be well balanced & informative like Dubai Mickey…… he was prepared to put his head on the line and give us little rays of hope but “don’t shoot the messenger comes to mind”

    A wise man once told me, “You can please some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time”.

    At the end of the day we should be all pulling together for the good of the team! In my case I go along with boycott but I respect the decision of those who chose to go the game. Hopefully there will be enough empty spaces to totally embosses a certain “Fat Slug”

    Talk Sport.
    A caller was cut short who started to mention a few things about Ashley.
    Think we need to appreciate that Talk Sport cannot let folks sound off without limits.
    They are responsible for what goes out.
    Ashley would be the first to take them to court for anything said that could not be proved and was inappropriate.

    Danny Mills needs a line tattooed on his head from front to back then he can look like a complete dickhead.
    He also needs to stand on his head in the morning before getting dressed as the shite is coming out of the wrong end.
    Shut up Mills ! You know nowt !

    Mills has been attacking Newcastle fans for years. Pure spite. This is the same arsehole who has gushing and unearned praise for Aston Villa fans.

    Ashley is now being shown for the lying twat he is. The media have tried to ignore Peter Kenyon trying to FORCE Ashley with the french coach – and not a word in the media. He has never had any intention of selling. He wants to keep ripping us off, while having baldy turds like Mills displaying his monumental double standards of thinking a relegation battle every year is “good enough” for US, but no ****** else.

    Same tosspot who thinks that every other club on a par with Newcastle for size – have a “divine right” to not only be top 6 but win trophies. He’s even said as such when talking about Spurs, Everton – and bloody Aston Villa
    Odd so much anti-Newcastle spite and crap comes out of Norwich. Remember Mick Dennis – another Norwich creep – caused so much hate of Newcastle over the years 2007-2012 when he packed in because he was getting so much back from Newcastle fans he backed off (and was the source of all the unbpleasantness with the Villa dumbnuts – oh, and Dennis was proven wrong so often, and proved the crap he printed was just INVENTED by him – ie Chris Hughton was hounded out of Newcastle by the FANS) and was proved wrong time and time again.
    So maybe it is Norwich.
