Mike Ashley -- Football Cunt

Recommended Posts

I pity those who still think that not only a takeover will happen but think it is imminent and Rafa will then sign a new contract.

I was informed by a colleague who's a season ticket holder who's been working with the club recently and who's been in touch with a local organisation member associated with the club. It could all still go tits up, but he seems confident of things progressing.

Same fella told me you’re a cunt

I’ll be astonished if this takeover happens. Even if it does, I wouldn’t be surprised if Ashley retains some kind of hold over us (merchandising rights, advertising, land, or whatever).

 

I think the next manager will indicate what he is thinking. New owners won’t want some appalling manager sitting on a long term contract that they have to pay off. Someone shite on a short term caretaker basis then positive signs that he is trying to sell. Someone shite on a long term basis then we are stuck with him until John Sitton relegates us to the conference.

One coach to help train 25 players, fuck me :lol: 

 

Wants to be a club where we develop players but won’t even stump up the cash to do that properly. It’s beyond a joke.

Quote


He is so antagonistic and has been so disrespectful of the native culture that, most likely, only a sale could ever change the perception of what Newcastle are. But Benitez presented him with the perfect opportunity to distance himself in an adevantageous way and, from details reported, that wouldn’t have taken very much to achieve. Certainly not hundreds of millions of pounds every window, just the reinvestment of a healthy percentage of the television revenue and the occasional transfer deference to performance over profit. That team wouldn’t have been a contender, but it might have changed the conversation.

 

Which is the real aim, because that’s where the real value in football club ownership is: appearing to do one thing, but actually doing another. But that’s what separates Ashley from those who have been able to convert football’s power into currency. He remains so enslaved to his high street, quick quid mentality that the game’s macro opportunities are lost on him. Benitez was such a chance and, consumed by illusory virtues like control and sell-on fees, Ashley has cut his nose off to spite his face.

HE TOOK IT ALL AWAY

He took it all away 
The passion that I had 
He did nothing that was good 
All of it was bad 
That feeling deep inside 
My heart bursting with Geordie pride 
The excitement on match day 
He just took it all away 
The very essence of being a ‘club’ 
He made it all pointless 
As he dragged our proud name repeatedly through the mud 
A laughing stock of the game 
Ever since the day he came 
He could not lie straight in bed 
You can not believe a word he says 
False promises season after season 
He took away the reason 
This club exists to represent the City
He cares nothing of that concept
Every transfer window skimping on the kitty 
The green bit in the middle 
Where the team play the game we call football
To him 
That means nothing 
Holds no interest to him at all
The bank account is where he’s at
Profit
Make no mistake of that 
He belittled Kevin Keegan
And now Rafa....he is leaving 
He brought in Joe Kinnear
Oh dear 
And even Dennis Wise 
Nee wonder he’s despised 
He drank pints with the fans 
Desecrated the ground with red and blue signage  
Adorning each and every stand
Red and blue 
He hasn’t got a clue
He cares nothing of me and you 
Black and white are our colours 
Stripes upon the top 
Not red and blue 
Representing some second rate tat sports shop 
History and tradition 
He knows nothing of what that meant 
He treats Tyneside and it’s people with total disregard and contempt 
His arrogance knows no bounds 
He even tried to change the name of the ground 
A few reasons I have stated 
Reasons why he’s hated 
Twice relegated 
From the Premier League
And yet 
He’s still here 
I find that so hard to believe 
Surely 
The time has come to make a stand 
Against this arrogant and obnoxious greed diseased self indulgent man 
Like we would have done years ago
When we were the best supporters in the land 
But not now 
No not now 
Because we have no battle cry 
As we sit and watch our famous football club 
Crumble and slowly die
And that is what I hate most of all
Not standing up for our beliefs 
And if that means an empty 
St James’s Park
So be it 
Make a statement 
Thousands outside 
Standing on Tyneside streets 
Or did you never go for the cause 
Was all about a pint and a pie 
Was it never in your heart 
That for Newcastle United you would die 
It is not just about winning a football game 
Rolling over and being dictated to
Like a lion tamed 
It’s about the passion 
It’s about identity 
About belonging 
It’s about your Geordie pride 
But sadly 
It looks that like our football club 
That has slowly died 

And I am sorry to say 

So sad to say 

We let Mike Ashley 

Take it all away

He hasn’t even got the vision to invest in the academy

I imagine there will be more than one coach. The point is that they'll be club appointees rather than linked to the manager. So when Mark Hughes does get the boot it means we don't have to pay out compensation to the whole coaching staff.

Not even sure Ashley is switched on enough to do that. Wasn’t it Pardew, Carver and Stone doing everything when they were here? And then when Pardew left, it was just Laurel and Hardy there giving it their all.

Well there was Andy Woodman too. I'd say three coaches is standard for a shit manager who doesn't believe in research, stats or fitness.
