Report – Newcastle Low On Ashley’s List Of Priorities



The Chronicle reported last week after the defeat at Chelsea that Mike Ashley has no plans to replace head coach Steve Bruce despite Newcastle dropping to 17th in the table. The situation has since gotten more precarious with Fulham now just three points behind Newcastle with a much better goal difference.

Therefore a loss against Wolves at St. James’ Park coupled with a Fulham win at Crystal Palace next weekend will see Newcastle in the relegation places. Whether that scenario will cause Mike Ashley to have a change of heart remains to be seen.

However, last night’s loss at Manchester United has reportedly done little to move Ashley into action. Here is a tweet from the Telegraph’s Luke Edwards on Ashley’s stance, or lack thereof, on his embattled football club.

A defeat at Old Trafford was not likely to extract a response from Newcastle’s emotionally divested owner. Though a drop into the bottom three may be enough to get Ashley in motion. He can ill afford Newcastle going down this year if he hopes to get anywhere near his asking price for this club.

Fan group Toon For Change has issued an ‘urgent plea’ to Mike Ashley to replace Steve Bruce as manager. Here is a tweet from the group containing their statement.

This is unlikely to garner any response from the often stubborn Mike Ashley. However, if Bruce picks up nothing at home against Wolves on Saturday or at West Brom the following weekend, then Newcastle will likely be in the bottom three with just 10 matches to play. That is Steve McClaren territory where Ashley’s reluctance to act with haste cost Newcastle their Premier League status.

Who Was Newcastle's Best Player In 3-1 Defeat At Manchester United?

    Not high on AshLie’s priority list are we!? I don’t get thst guy! Then why on earth is he taking the league to court regsrding the failed takeover? I thought the guy wanted to see his money by having the takeover waved through.

    If we’re relegated i really doubt anyone would but us and he’ll lose millions. But we’re not a priority.

    Money IS his priority so i don’t get how we fail to fall into that category.

    So sick of it all.

    If you want to sell your roast chicken, part cook it, put it in fridge, repeat, repeat, and while still not cooked offer it for sale as a perfectly cooked and healthy roast chicken

    ‘If you want to sell your house, you will not maintain it’

    I assume whilst your house was up for sale, you maintained it to a degree and didn’t let it start to crumble? In takeover terms, this is similar to someone agreeing to buy the house, something happens so it no longer goes ahead, they say ‘let us know when it’s sorted and we’ll come back to buy it again’, they then come back and the house is crumbling apart.

    Can’t believe i’m talking about house sales as an analogy for the takeover situation, I think I need to come off the blog for a bit…

    “I’m just in the middle of selling a house, I’ve agreed price with the buyer and just waiting on the solicitors to do their jobs.
    No way am I spending another bean on it”

    That is right. Unless of course the boiler blows and the chimney falls into the back bedroom before you’ve exchanged contracts.

    CH,
    And if the deal stalls and stalls, will you let the holes in the roof that appear just let rain soak down the walls and into the carpets, then trip your electrics so that you can’t see the mould that is appearing on your curtains and sofa. Do you then move our and let your elderly senile neighbour take care of it and still expect the same price.

    Of course but once the viewer viewed it and made an offer which I accepted then I won’t spend anything on it now, does that make sense ?

    CH,
    That is as real an example as you can get. If a deal has been made it was for a mid table-ish PL club, not one that is on the verge of being relegated.

    Makes perfect sense, that tweet didn’t say that though, it said: ‘If you want to sell your house, you will not maintain it’, not that if it’s sold you don’t maintain it. So maintain the house up until it’s sold. Aka maintain the clubs status until it’s sold. The club isn’t sold and we’ve been told that apparently PIF will come back when they have assurances it’ll pass, meaning a deal will need to be agreed again. If they see that the club hasn’t been maintained (relegation) they would not offer the same amount, in the same way someone would not offer the same for a prestine house if that house then turned into a crumbling mess.

    You have no clue like me what a deal might be or not be
    I was just telling you that you won’t spend money on a house you think you’ve sold and I would bet Ashley thinks he has sold it

    I think we have to accept that as it always is in life, for whatever reason people will take their view on proceedings, some are hoping to look at the cup half full, the others half empty.

    If I may bring in yet another tired analogy, the Titanic – always good to fall back on to the Titanic…well you know what I mean ha ha- you have the brave captain, prepared to go down with his vessel with stoic acceptance, some are in the band, playing jaunty uplifting melodies to calm the passengers, some are crew members standing by their captain even though he has steered them onto a hacky big lump of ice, some are standing on the deck shaking their fists and complaining to the crew about the interruption to their journey, others don’t know what the fuss is about the ship is unsinkable you know, and some are the screaming cowards trampling over children to hide in the lifeboats ha ha..

    Oh yes, and there are a few fast asleep and unaware of the mayhem after spending the previous night dancing and singing along to the musical entertainment 🙂

    The moral of the story is – Flying is safer.

    coming home, i agree neither of us know what the deal is. Just going by information spread out there right now. You wouldn’t spend money on a house you think you’ve sold, but you would if the house was starting to show signs of damage/cracks etc before it’s officially sold or the buyer may change their mind or lower their offer.

    I’m reading that many say the next four are winnable well let me tell you that I felt the same against Sheffield United, Leeds United, Crystal Palace and Southampton.
    My concerns are all related to the takeover and if Bruce takes us down and loses the biggest deal we could ever hope of, then I hope they build a statue of him smiling like last night to remind people never let your ego get in the way of destroying dreams.
    He could walk but he won’t the man is equally as bad as Ashley in fact worse cause he is one of our own.

    Can we all come to a agreement now?

    Once Bruce and Ashley finally leave and we’ve said fair well and Good luck, their names are never spoken of on the blog again.

    I’m sick of the pair of them, send them to Coventry when this is done.

    13 games left
    25 points

    So we need to win at least 5 more games to have a resonable chance of avoiding relegation
    On current for were no where near getting 15 more points

    Without something changing we are going down this yeas
