Freddie Shepherd: Ashley is ruining Newcastle United

Pot. Kettle. Black

The futures bright, the futures yellow

“I suppose nothing surprises me about the current regime, so news they are ready to sell the naming rights isn’t exactly a shock. Whatever next? Why don’t they just go the whole hog and change the name of the club itself? Fans will be horrified, angry and upset about this. They’ve had to put up with a lot in recent months, but this is just another blow.”

Indeed, but who to blame? Well, on selling his shares in Newcastle two years ago to err…. Mike Ashley, Shepherd commented:

“The board believes Mike Ashley will be an excellent custodian of Newcastle United’s heritage and will provide the best possible opportunity for the club to flourish in the future, to the benefit of the company and its fans.”

How’s the whole heritage preservation thing going then Freddie?

    you can say what you like regarding shepherd we all no about his failings but he was forced to sell thanks to the greedy hall family who didnt give a dam who they were selling the club to shepheard did make mistakes but at least he had the club at heart unlike the greedy parisites wo currently have the club whos sole intentetion is make as much money from nufc and football as he can after which he will slope off and damage some other piece of history for cash
