Mike Ashley proves himself to be a classy guy…once again!
Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has proved once and for all that he has less class than the knee-high white Donnay socks he flogs at Sports Direct by putting the club up for sale by email.
A statement on Newcastle’s official website (talk about washing your dirty linen/Donnay sports socks in public) informed visitors that they too could bid for the club by emailing email@example.com or contacting Keith Harris at Seymour Desperation Pierce. As far as we know, bids made to Orville will not be accepted.
As you can see, Newcastle’s adserver delivered a beautiful immediate response to the statement, albeit in Spanish.
The internet is already rife with examples of some of the emails rival fans have taken delight in sending to the email address. Read some of the best emails reported to have been sent and add your own after the jump. (Off the Post)

I am sure that all the loyal Toon Army fans just wish to high heaven that Mr. Ashley crawled back under the stone from whence he came. The worrying thing for Newcastle United fans is that in today’s market it seems highly unlikely a bidder will come along any time soon unless Ashley cuts the price even more than he already has done, such is the damage he has inflicted on the club he claimed to love.
