Newcastle United – The ‘If Only’ club

3 years ago

Newcastle United…what will happen next?

Well, if Mike Ashley is still here, we know it won’t be anything good.

The latest official Newcastle United Fans Forum was a total embarrassment, at least in terms of the minutes that the club pushed out (eventually) afterwards.

What I took out of the Fans Forum minutes, was that NUFC are officially now the ‘If Only’ club.

A football club that could really push forward and succeed, ‘If Only’ we didn’t have all this bad luck…

Obstacles that appear which block Mike Ashley’s best intentions…

If only £20m+ players had been interested in signing for Newcastle this summer, the biggest buy wouldn’t have been £9.5m Yoshinori Muto.

If only some £20m+ players had wanted to sign for Newcastle this summer, Mike Ashley wouldn’t have then taken money out of the club.

If only outside companies were interested in buying  all the advertising opportunities inside St James Park , there wouldn’t be any S….. D….. presence.

If only decent quality players didn’t want market level wages, Newcastle would have signed them this summer.

If only there was proof it definitely would produce first team players, Mike Ashley would invest in the Academy.

If only Newcastle United didn’t have to prioritise cash spent elsewhere (Mike Ashley taking it out) the state of the art training complex promised in 2013 would be built now.

If only if it wasn’t for the actions of fans and media, Mike Ashley would have sold the club by now.

If only somebody was willing to pay Mike Ashley’s asking price, he would sell Newcastle United.
