Mike Ashley exposed as disgraceful new claims arrive from NUFC’s recruitment team

Newcastle are the 20th richest club in world football, boasting revenues of over £240 million per year. I’m utterly embarrassed to see the government STILL paying the wages of some of our staff through the furlough scheme.

We are now the ONLY Premier League club still using the support, according to The Chronicle, with them revealing that Mike Ashley has kept certain members of our scouting department on leave until the scheme ends in October.

This means our European scout Paul Baker is one of several who’ve been told to stay at home and not to return until next month – despite us being in the middle of a key transfer window for the club.

To me, there is no reason – moral or financial – for a club of our magnitude to still be using the scheme. It quite frankly repulses me – as it will many others.

To be fair, when has the term ‘morality’ ever been used in conjunction with Ashley’s name? It’s another callous act that tarnishes the reputation of the club and only emphasises his innate greed.

Just like changing the name of the stadium and releasing club-hero (and cancer survivor) Jonas Gutierrez over the phone – the abuse of the furlough scheme is another representation of why Ashley is so loathed on Tyneside, he just doesn’t care.

However, we all know that public opinion means almost nothing to him. For Ashley, the club has always been – and will always be – just another business.

Bluntly put, the furlough money wasted on massive corporations like Newcastle United could be used to support those small businesses – of which there are so many in the North-East – who are collapsing.

I can’t imagine that it keeps Ashley up at night, though.

  1. To be honest I am not surprised, another media circus surrounding the club for the fans to enjoy.

    I was hoping the media would get behind the fans to get some answers from yet another failed takeover or is that too much to ask.

    Counting the articles that appear to be written by a Mackem has become exhausting..

  2. Yes yes yes. All very well and good. Now, in terms of Gouda, is he a sainsburys basics man or does he truly like to ‘taste the difference’ as reports claim. Cheers boss 💡
