If Thaksin is a hero why isnt Ashley?

Recommended Posts

The similarities are striking

 

Both bought aclubs with massive debt and paid that debt down.

Both bought clubs that had no other interest in them at the time.

Both parted ways with popular managers in their tenure.

Both (eventually) will sell on a more attractive package to a third party.

Both clubs will be better off than when they joined.

 

You could have gone to the wall waiting for a shiek or consortium to come along.

 

Ashley bridging that gap could have saved your club.

 

Fat lot of good it has done him.

 

Thaksin gets treated like a King, Ashley has members of his family threatened.

Ashley said he had been advised that he and his family should not attend games for their own safety, however the police have denied issuing any such advice so chances are he was talking complete bollocks, so I can see why you're such a fan of him.

And when you click on the Guardian article all it says is what ewerk says about him 'being advised'. Unfortunately you've fallen into the same trap as Joe Kinnear and only read the headline. Nice try though.

either way we are picking round the point rather than taking on the big issue.

 

Why is Ashley hated by toon fans (apart from the fact he fell out with KK)

 

He has saved you.

Saved us so well that we're 19th, propped up only by your even sadder excuse for a club, and we've lost the best manager we've had since Robson, confidence is shot, we're stuck with a poison dwarf, a smirking rat bastard of a chairman, cronyism is rampant, we made shit signings and the squad arguably went backwards since last year.

 

Saved us.

 

Poor wind-up attempt. 3/10.

He has?

 

 

Have you seen where we are now?

And did you see where we were with Keegan?

 

 

I think we could do with out being saved like this, and I'd really hate to see him actively try to destroy a club. :lol:

That vs a Leeds scenario.

 

Yes saved you, FACT.

At least you have got a rubbish club to watch. You may have had no club, or at the very least, one with -10 points.

We were in an unsustainable financial position (over the long-term), but nothing like a Leeds one, just operating more moderately would solved the problem eventually.

 

 

We do have the potential to "do a Leeds" now though, although for quite different reasons. :lol:

And you think this because?

 

Let me guess, you read that Ashley said unless he came in the club would sink (a claim dismissed by the previous owners), yeah, because everything MA said was true wasn't it :lol:

I remember looking at your accounts a few years back under Shepherd.

 

You gearing was terminal and you were carrying a mountainous overdraft that could have been called in at any time.

 

Anybody who knows about finance knows that debt should be manageable and structured.

 

Having a Overdraft at 17% rather than a loan at 5% tells me that the markets were no longer willing to lend to NUFC as a long term concern.

 

I doubt many of you understand the above but in short it was a recipe for disaster.
