  1. Would have taken a chance on him tbh.
  2. Introductions

    Going to make more time to post on here again. Will be good to see some names from 10 years or so ago that I remember speaking to on here and some new ones!
  3. Just seeing him standing over a free-kick or corner would bring back so much optimism.
  4. Because there's nowt I can do about it and I've no interest in running or investing in a football club.
  5. Is that the only line people have if you don't think the NUST will be a success, "well why don't you do something about it"?
  6. And NUST do?
  7. Give over man. It's funny cos i said the same thing over on N-O yesterday. Great minds.... I love how being sceptical or against a potential new investor makes you "pro Ashley" and "worse than a Mackem". I remember seeing a snippet from the NUST a few months back saying they were a bit sceptical about Barry Moat's credentials. Does this make them pro-Ashley? Bollocks man.
  8. Give over man.
  9. Ask them.
  10. It's more a criticism of the NUST than defending Ashley. Like I say, I want him out, and agree with the idea in principle, but they need better people running it without pathetic little digs like that and using "hearsay".

  12. how much is that again? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/...relegation.html
  13. Even if it turns out Ashley is somehow taking £7m from the club a month, which I still don't believe, I'd love to know how that's "profit" after the amount he's put into easing the debts.
  14. Of course he'll need it. Just as every single owner/board member/chairman up and down the country does, and I'm sure he knows this and is prepared for it. Would have been naive for anybody to start something of this scale and not expect criticism or scepticism, and after reading Peasepud's posts on here over the years I'm sure he's ready for it.
