Newcastle owner Mike Ashley appears to be making up for something that’s lacking in his life. Either that, or he’s trying his damnedest to get supporters back on his side. Just look at the money he’s spent on the squad of late!
Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has spent nearly another £10m on the club in the form of a £4.5m loan for midfielder Kevin Nolan’s transfer from Bolton and has paid off £4m the club owed to Real Mallorca for Jonas Guttierrez – taking his total spending to £258m. (Various)
To be honest, the only way Tyneside will ever be truly happy is when Ashley decides to sell the club and leave. Whilst it would seem like he’s trying his best to get in their good graces and stay in the top flight for next season, I’m pretty sure Newcastle supporters would agree that it would take a lot more than money to make them content once more.
