Dave Whelan on Ashley

Recommended Posts

Apologies if you were expecting some man on man action....

 

 

"I know Mike Ashley quite well as I was running JJB when he was with Sports Direct, and he is a bit unusual," said Whelan.

 

"He is a very good retailer, but at managing a football club, no.

 

"Especially with him being a Tottenham supporter and then going up to

 

Newcastle, a club that is a different kettle of fish to most in the land.

 

"The fans up there eat, breathe and live for one thing, and that is Newcastle United.

 

"Unless you put your whole heart into it, are a 100 per cent Geordie and are backing them, then they will give you some stick.

 

"He has got it, and he deserves it."

Wigan's own Geordie boss Steve Bruce has been touted as a possible successor to Keegan on his native Tyneside - but Whelan insists he would not be interested.

 

He said: "One day he will get a big-four job - I realise that, and I think the whole country realises he is one of the best four managers in the world.

 

Fucking hell :snakehips:

Given our current state, I'd take Steve Bruce right now.

Don't be ridiculous.

 

I can't stand the bloke but I think he's doing a good job at Wigan despite Bramble.
