  1. About time too. I hope their PR/Communications department have been fired as part of the 120 people who were made redundant, they’ve been shocking for too long.

  2. How has this man made so much money?

    It’s easier to see how he has lost all his money!


  3. What purpose does this serve, 8 days AFTER it has been in the public domain – am I missing some ulterior motive? Why the e-mail address????? The guy totally floors me.

  4. One thing nobody can deny – the club’s communication has been abysmal under Ashley and Llambias, neither of which appears to be a ‘people person’.

  5. How amateur can you get? They’ll be sticking the club up on ebay next. Buy it now for £80,000,000. This can’t be a serious statement. It must have been done by someone who is currently on their notice. At least I hope it is. Just which top business man, consortium or mega rich oil baron is going to send an e-mail with their intentions to

  6. MT – just said exactly the same thing to my boss before lunch. We could bump up the asking price with anonymous bids that way…

    Seriously though, that surely won’t stay on the official website will it?

  7. Bowburn, did you get my comment about finishing off your last ‘blog? Sorry about that BTW. Will always check in future.

  8. I did mate, no worries. It probably read ok in the end anyway. What about the blog name suggestion?

    “…What about the blog name suggestion?”

    Bowburn, my consideration as a web designer was that it would be important for the name / domain to have either “Newcastle United” or “NUFC” in the title, because that’s what Newcastle fans will look for. Also, I chose the domain when Ed was writing about closing down the other blog, but holding on to his own .com domain, so I chose nufcblog.ORG. Once you start down one road, it is quite difficult to turn back.

  10. Ashley’s worst decisions have, I think, been the ones that he thinks the fans will want. Appointing Special K, attempting to sell the club and get out of Dodge (twice) at the WORST possible times, leaving a catastrophic managerial and decisionmaking vacuum etc.
