Ex-NUFC Star Says ‘What Does Mike Ashley Want From Newcastle United?’

7 years ago

Former NUFC star Andy Cole has summed up a lot of fans’ feelings by questioning what Mike Ashley wants with Newcastle United.

The record breaking one time striker sees an unstable club at St.James’ Park, with a relegation battle just as likely as a top ten finish.

Speaking to the Chronicle Andy Cole had this to say;

“What does Mike Ashley want from Newcastle United?”

“The club is so unstable at the minute – one season they finish top ten and another they can be scratching around the relegation zone.

“Newcastle might need 4 or 5 players if they’ve any real expectations of a European position but you don’t know what Mike Ashley wants to do.

“If he doesn’t want to invest then maybe find a suitable buyer because the fans deserve better than what they’re getting.

“The back end of last season was very disappointing and the fans were dejected by the end, there has got to be improvement.”

I think the reality is that Newcastle need four or five decent signings just to stabilise the club, never mind talking about European places.
