Report Ashley to try to halt season ticket sale decline... in Newcastle Forum Posted February 17, 2009 Can't read the first two pages at work as they are victim of the porn filter for some reason so apologies of already said: I've cancelled my direct debit and the only thing that will get me back is a sale so I can't see a sales pitch from the people responsible for the reasons I'm not bothering making any difference. As I've said if we do go down I'll go to a few more away games next season instead. I know its different for me as the travel/expense make the decision easier to some extent than those who live locally - I have mates who are just as pissed off as me who won't cancel as going to the match is easier and more part of a normal weekend socialising. I have also cancelled my direct debit, and yes I will miss the socialising that we have when we go to the match, but for a very long time the bit in the middle of matchdays (the 90 minutes) has really been pissing me off. I will more than likely go into town have a few beers and then go home happy, something that has been difficult to achieve lately. For Ashley and Llambias to feed us more crap just amazes me, I do not believe! I do not think there is any conspiracy to deliberately f+*k everything up, I've never believed that, why would he want to fail. He is a businessman and wealthy at that, so why would he plan to fail. No it is just plain incompetence, a bunch of meddlers and muddlers that have not got a clue. All of this so-called communication, TBF they can't do right for doing wrong, is so patronizing and so many lies and avoiding answering the real issues. He has now got wind that a number of DDR's have bounced and there is a groundswell of opinion that a number might not renew next year, so here he comes again, and more shit with discounts etc. I am not one who wants to go back in time and scream that KK is the answer or that we should be making big name signings, what I would expect is little more ambition than JFK and his team of no-hopers in Hughton and co. But, no we settle for third or fourth rate, but what I have done is voted with my dosh, Ashley's regime is getting no more. How true this £1 million is as a bonus for JFK, I do not know, but what I do know is I am not going to make any contribution to it. Yes I am one of thos who has seen worse, but do I want it to return, of course not, we have challenged in the top 4 etc, I do not want to see us fighting relegation season after season, I might as well not watch as it just makes me so pissed off. I've been going to SJP for more than 50 years, through the good times and the bad times, and there is certainly no incentive for me to want to carry on under this regime. It is not about how much, it is about value for money. I want to SEE OUR CLUB MOVING FORWARD WITH AMBITION and SUCCESS and I might return, BUT THIS REGIME STRUGGLES TO PROVIDE THAT, so I fear I'll be missing for some time! So Mr Ashley and Llambias, ambition and success are the only incentives that I need to renew my ST!
