Freddy Shepherd tells Newcastle fans not to boycott

6 years ago

Former Chairman Freddy Shepherd has told Newcastle fans that they shouldn’t boycott matches.

The man who made tens of millions from the club, says that Mike Ashley is a ‘great businessman’ and somebody who ‘knows what he is doing’….I think we’d all worked that second one out by now!

Shepherd claims that Newcastle fans will see a big change in the summer…

Most United supporters will feel it sticking in the throat when they hear somebody like Freddy Shepherd lecturing them about what they should and shouldn’t do, considering the fortunes he made from Newcastle United and the mess he made of the club with John Hall’s help – then finally selling out to somebody like Mike Ashley.

Freddy Shepherd speaking to Sky:

“I am really worried but I think a boycott is not going to be the answer, I don’t think it helps anybody.

“We need to get behind John Carver and the team, doing a boycott isn’t going to help that team – they are lacking confidence and need every supporter behind them.”

Mike Ashley knows what he is doing…:

“Mike Ashley’s a very clever guy, there is no doubt about it, he is a great businessman and so he knows what he is doing.

“I think in the summer you will see a big change in Newcastle because he will not want his assets to depreciate, so I am confident he is going to come out in the summer and spend some money, get some players in.”
