Cracking read Wiz, thanks!. I hope all of it comes true, all except Arry getting the job. The guy is a dinosaur and not what we need. He is definitely better than SM, however, my little toe would do a better job than SM.

Just a thought but could Redknapp be replacing Carr or Charnley? Carrs transfer deallings have been terrible since cabaye.

Charnley has taken the club to new depths, he makes JFK look good.

My guess is that the coaching staff and players have changed yet we are getting worse. Surely Mike Ashley must have little confidence that FLC has what it takes. With 25m of signings sat on the bench, Ashley must be fuming at the two of them.

Redknapp has little desire to be out on the training pitch but he loves being in front of the cameras and wheeling and dealing. Potentially lots of cuts of agents fees for him too.

The club is in profit and with the new sky TV deals is about to become an even bigger cash cow to the fat t**t. As long as he can keep us just above the drop zone and reap the profits, while having a free advertising platform for his Sports Direct company, he will continue to milk all the hard working supporters for all he can get from them.

It's heart breaking - but the only way we can get rid of him is to stop going to all games. So sad.

I see Rednapp as an addition to McClaren, not a replacement. The head coach will have a manager, albeit for a short time.

great read and excellent perspective. ''Never say Never'' one thing is certain football is due another nighty crash and i wouldn't disagree regards stock market crashing again

@DavidDrape Markets will always go down at some point so the advice to sell before the crash is always going to be valid, the trick is knowing when. 

I suspect the internet telly streaming may affect NUFC's value more than a crash (whenever that may or may not happen). 

I can't see a world economic crash in the next year though unless we go into a war or something happens with China (which will happen in the next decade). UK, US and German economies are fairly stable with enough emerging markets in Africa and Asia to keep growth going. The UK is fairly well place (considering) Osbourne's cuts are seen as sensible and our businesses are not in the debt that they were in 2007.

The profit he will get from next years TV and sponsorship money means there is NO WAY he will sell. I think you are way off the mark in most aspects of your story

@mactoon Not really the argument, the money from TV means that the value of NUFC is at a high and fits in with the theory of selling now (or the next year or so). The TV money also fits in with the  idea that there will be more takers now than when / if the football bubble bursts or that internet tv kills the TV deals.

@Bobbi Flekman @mactoon  it makes money for Ashley but doesn't for a potential buyer who also has to pay Ashley a deficit of 129 million which he has invested to keep the club in the black.

Wellcome to the house of fun Harry.

Goodbuy Ashley.

St.James as it used to more Tic Tack boards around this great stadium.

If only.

Redknapp is NOT the answer!

Ashley's speciality is hiring out-of-work managers - and how often does it work!?

What a load of claptrap!

Do you see Ashley selling off millions of his shares at present? No! So how is he gambling on a stock market crash? How could a stock market crash possibly help MA? A very large proportion of his wealth is invested in shares.

Also, if he feels he has had his fingers burnt by acquiring NUFC, why would he then go out and buy Rangers (or at least attempt to)?

@Bishbosh11  Despite the fact I am calling myself Cripes, Bishbosh11, this is actually Wiz writing this reply.

No, I don't see Ashley selling off millions of his shares. He is not gambling on a stock market crash. He is afraid his investment in Newcastle will be worthless at the time of a crash. If Newcastle are still in the Premier League, this would probably not happen. If Newcastle are relegated, it could quite possibly happen. It will take Newcastle years to get out of the Championship.

Rangers are a much better bet than Newcastle in the long term. Cheaper too.

I'd never been a fan of his, but he/anything MUST be better than the tripe were watching.
