The Chink In Mike Ashley’s Armour?

8 years ago

Mike Ashley is a stubborn-minded individual and he has the financial clout to ignore the protesting fans that staged a walkout at SJP on Saturday.

He has made the club self-financing by imposing his own austerity squeeze on the whole set-up. Pardew claims that the protest was by fans who are frustrated by the recent results. He is wrong.

The protests are about the regime that is in place and the way it is being run.

No signings for too long. No replacements brought in. The local press being seen as subversive, so they are banned.

Everything being done so cheaply that we know Ashley is taking the mickey.

If the supporters REALLY want Mike Ashley out, I have a suggestion.

The man is a corporate guy and this is the world that he understands. He has sold the club to the devil by accepting sponsorship from financial leeches, by doing this, he has provided a way for a bit of corporate embarrassment to come his way.

I am sure that constant detrimental chanting about the shirt sponsors (no angels they) would help have the desired effect.
