New takeover message sent to Mike Ashley as Gary Neville hits nail on the head – Video

Gary Neville has urged Mike Ashley to lower his asking price for Newcastle United to help save one of the “great clubs” of England.

The Sports Direct tycoon has been at the helm since 2007 and oversaw a drastic downturn in the clubs fortunes, with the club being relegated twice in 2009 and 2016.

Supporter optimism is at an all-time low as Newcastle finished bottom of a chart conducted by Sky Sports in preseason, which asked how positive fans were ahead of the new campaign.

Following Friday night’s 1-1 draw with Leeds, Man Utd legend Neville called on Ashley to do all he can to wash his hands of NUFC – a move that will be best for all parties involved.

He pointed towards the £300million asking price for our club, a figure that has only been met by the Saudi-backed consortium that was blocked by the Premier League.

This is what he said while speaking to Sky Sports after the game:

  1. As a exiled Geordie and Toon mad fan living so far from the action in Perth australia. So I am not full bottle on the rules and regulations of the so called relegation parachute payment system. With that in mind , Is Ashley , after refusing to commit funds to improve the squad, hedging his bets. I.E , No 1 choice if a takeover is successful this season, (doubtful)he gets his asking price without any outlay.No 2 choice and more likely, is that if we get relegated , he has to lower his price considerably. But a much less scrutinised and easier sale. However can he make up some of the loss by pocketing the parachute money.


  2. I really don’t know what to believe .
    The consortium says they are still going to buy Newcastle .
    That is why he hasn’t invested in the transfer window.
    It like selling your house while your waiting for the sale to go through .you invest more money in the house .which wouldn’t make sense would it ?
