Mike Ashley’s TWO promises to Rafa Benitez & the NUFC squad at last night’s meeting – Report

According to the Daily Mail, Mike Ashley confirmed that he will NOT be selling the club this season and has promised to take the squad on holiday if we avoid relegation this season – insisting he is ‘determined’ to keep Rafa Benitez at the club.

This comes after last night’s meal out with the manager, his staff and the Newcastle United squad – a night which ended with him putting two fingers up at frustrated NUFC fans outside the restaurant.

Craig Hope’s piece states that Ashley has now strongly denied these claims, however it seemed quite clear that this was no him scratching his ear – so what else was it?

Regarding the sale of the club, it’s hardly great news that he’s now saying he will NOT sell this season, although it may be time we focused on things on the pitch if we are to turn things around this season.

At the end of the day, is someone actually going to take us over while we’re at risk of relegation? As Staveley’s ‘attempt’ to buy us last season proved, any bids are likely to include a lot of caveats and clauses whilst we’re at risk of going down – and those offers are clearly not going to be accepted by Ashley.



Provided he does spend in January, it may be a good thing if takeover talk dies down until next summer at least.

As far as a team holiday is concerned, it’s all too little too late. Where was this money when Rafa needed it over the summer?!

  1. On holiday? 1. They can afford any holiday they wish to go on surely. 2. Why the hell would you want to go with him?

  3. We have a good position in the league so Ashley doesn’t want to sell. We have a bad position in the league so nobody will come in and buy us. It’s all bu*****t.
    Wolves were taken over in the Championship by mega rich owners.
    Ashley has no intention of giving up his cash cow. Like Soubry says “We’ll all just have just to ‘suck it up'”.
    (Unless we take the fight to him and his crap brand – daily and continually in wherever and whatever official or underhand way we can.)

  4. Believe nothing from last night , this is just another scam move by the ARSEHOLE ASHLEY, More LIES, and deciet to follow.
    NO MATTER WHAT ASHLEY SAYS WHAT HE DID WHEN HE GOT IN THE CAR WAS A DELIBERATE TWO FINGER SALUTE TO ALL NEWCASTLE FANS. Continue to relentlessly pile pressure on anything and everything that has ASHLEY’S grubby hands on or in it.

  6. The Chelsea players getting to use Ambramovic’s yacht is a perk. The Newcastle players going on whatever cheapskate thing Ashley organises would be a punishment.
