Back in July 2019, Mike Ashley had a PR statement published via Martin Samuel and The Mail.

One of the trusted journalists he has worked with in the past to push out Newcastle United propaganda.

Contained within that PR statement, Mike Ashley stated: ‘You can put any accountant on our books and it’s whiter than white. I’ll pay and you can have an independent auditor come in and review us.’

The Magpie Group have now taken up that generous offer from the NUFC owner, writing to him yesterday (12 August 2019):

FROM:

The Magpie Group

PO Box 621

Newcastle upon Tyne

NE5 9AD

TO:

Mr M J W Ashley

Newcastle United FC

St James’ Park

Strawberry Place

Newcastle upon Tyne

NE1 4ST

12 August 2019

Dear Mr Ashley,

As you will be aware, The Magpie Group represents a broad range of Newcastle United supporters’ groups campaigning for a change of regime at the club.

We noted with interest the offer made in your interview with Martin Samuel of the Daily Mail on 8 July 2019 to pay for an independent auditor to review your books, viz, “You can put any accountant on our books and it’s whiter than white. I’ll pay and you can have an independent auditor come in and review us.”

As you may be aware, one of our banners says ‘19th Richest Club In The World. Where’s The Money Gone?’ so we would be extremely interested in finding out the answer to that question.

Please let us know the arrangements for taking advantage of your kind offer at your earliest convenience.

Yours sincerely

Wallace Wilson

Chairman, The Magpie Group
