Newcastle United Refuse To Lift NCJ Ban But Considering Shola Ameobi Testimonial

8 years ago

Newcastle United have refused to consider lifting the NCJ Media ban, which has seen the club snub the Chronicle, Sunday Sun and journal.

Asked at the latest Fans Forum at St.James’ Park, Mike Ashley via his minions, has confirmed that the position, “will remain unchanged.”

Fan Gordon Gilchrist asked;

Will the club lift the ban on NCJ Media?’

Also a ‘Document Question’  asking ‘Will you implement a lifting of ban on NCJ Media starting next season? The intransigence is a huge distraction and is detrimental to both parties.’

Club Reply;

“The club confirmed its position will remain unchanged. Decisions made by the board are not – and will not be – influenced by media coverage, however negative.”

On a slightly different matter, Liam Hall asked;

‘Will Shola Ameobi be given a testimonial?”

The club responded;

The club confirmed it does plan to mark the player’s length of service to Newcastle United but has not yet discussed its plans internally or with the player.”

The idea of paying to watch Shola lumber around the pitch in a friendly, after 14 years of paying to watch him…lumber around the pitch LIKE it was a friendly – no thanks!
