Amanda Staveley drops major hint as to how NUFC would be run if she took over

Amanda Staveley has dropped a big hint when assessing how a club would be run if she took over the likes of Newcastle United – stating she’s NOT looking to create ‘another Man City’ in terms of huge player investment.

As she mentions, in her quotes below, financial fair play rules now limit free spending, but there’ll be plenty Newcastle fans who won’t exactly be inspired by her comments.

This comes after she spoke out today about her attempts to buy the club over the last 18 months, with her insisting that she STILL holds interest and has ‘no issue’ with Mike Ashley after he claimed she was a ‘time waster’.

Here’s what she had to say when speaking to The National this week:

“We are sensible people who invest other people’s money. We would also put our own capital in – of course we would. But with financial fair play rules, all football clubs have to be financially stable.



“I am hugely proud of Man City – we are not looking at creating another Man City in terms of the huge levels of investment they’ve had on players.

“But what I love about Man City is how they have invested so well in Manchester, in the area. That’s really important, and the sort of thing we would want to do elsewhere.”

In fairness, I don’t think we or Benitez are demanding an owner to come in and spend silly money left, right and centre – we just want to be able to compete, shown some sort of ambition and give Rafa full control of transfers.

Considerable investment is essential if anyone wants to get anywhere near the top 6 – just look at Everton – but, for now, we have every right to ask for our club to back a world class manager and at least get us pushing in the right direction.

As far as Staveley is concerned, it’s time for her to put up or shut up. Ashley may be a difficult seller, but her credentials as a buyer remain questionable.

  1. She made three offers as confirmed by George Culkin, so hoe is it her interest in Newcastle is not believed

  2. Sorry, Olly, but your slagging off at Staveley sounds like an apologetic for Ashley. I doubt that is the case, so we can put this silly article down to some lazy journalism.
    Staveley would be very good for this club.

    She’s talked a lot a while back but where has she been over the last year? Over the summer we were there to be bought..

    Ashley’s price may have been too much, but it seems odd that she went all in then disappeared – and now she’s saying ‘I’m still interested but I like a lot of other clubs too’. Make your mind up?

    For the record, I’d have her over Ashley every day of the week!
