Shocking pictures emerge of NUFC’s training ground – More proof of Mike Ashley’s lies

During his letter response to the recent parliamentary investigation into his inadequate running of Newcastle United, Mike Ashley constructed another lie, this time around our training ground facilities and how they are “fit for purpose”.

He is using the miracles Rafa is producing on the field with a limited budget and playing staff to justify not investing further into the infrastructure of the club.

Photos emerged this week of these facilities and it makes a mockery of Ashley’s claims, take a look….

The training facilities at Newcastle United…

 

 

Yes some of these pictures are old, but Ashley has NOT made improvements since they were taken – that’s the point here.

Just quite how players using bins as ice baths is acceptable when £120m is generated by TV money EVERY YEAR is beyond me and I imagine, most Newcastle fans.

Of course footballers do have an easier ‘job’ than most but when compare these facilities to other Premier League sides, you can see how it would drive players away or count against us when competing for new players in the transfer market.

Here are some samples of other teams facilities, for a comparison…

This is another clear from our owner and yet more evidence of the club not just stagnating but clearly falling behind during his tenure. We need investment off the field as well as on it and if Ashley isn’t willing to do it, it is about time we drove him out in favour of someone who will.

  3. Until you stop giving the fat parasite any money nothing is going to change, look what happened when Rangers fans boycotted his shit merchandise & stop buying season tickets, only one way to beat Ashley and that’s starve him of any money.

    Actually these pictures were taken 5 years ago when ashley said he would improve facilities and he never did so stop slandering one of the only well balanced blogs on nufc you excitable child.

  6. You say drive him out, but how would that be achieved?
    On one hand, the fans say no-one should attend SJP as a protest. But on the other hand that may affect the teams performances.
    All these articles & comments are just a way for fans to vent their frustrations & nothing more.
    The fat pig Ashley simply doesn’t care that he’s a hated man in Newcastle, we just have to accept it!
    Unless someone comes up with a guaranteed solution of getting rid of him, what can we honestly do???

  7. Ashley isn’t a liar, he’s a bender!!! … of the truth.
    We want a meeting room to discuss tactics – we have one. The fact that it’s filled with shite chairs that numb your arse after 20mins – well it’s fit for purpose, not comfort.

    We want a gym – we have one. The fact gaffer tape is holding everything together – it’s fit for purpose, not annual membership.

    We want a changing room – we have one. The fact it has shelving units rather than lockers – it’s fit for purpose, not security.

    We want a training field – we have one. The fact it’s covered in stray dog shite – I’ve told you, it’s fit for purpose man!!.
    I wonder how many stray dogs run round other PL training grounds as we had last week?!.

    Anyone expecting a state of the art training ground has never stepped foot into a Sports Direct shop.

  8. Hey why are you complaining about training facilities and lack of new signings . We’ve got loads of house of Frazer stores .well Ashley has . You will probably find when they publish the next set of accounts the club will be debt free Ashley will have taken his interest free loan out that he keeps bleating on about . So going forward the club will get every penny generated so here’s to a £130 million next year if we manage to stay in the premier league .ashleys words about every penny generated let’s see how true that is

    Mongblog.. This is almost liable.. you’re a jokeblogger. Bah. So sad.

    The pictures are old, yes, but Ashley promised improvements and claims to have made several. He hasn’t since these were taken – so why is it not relevant?

    No one said these weren’t old pictures?

    Point is, Ashley hasn’t made any improvements since these were taken – so please tell us how this isn’t relevant?
