Ashley Must Be Pleased With Purchase

Ashley Must Be Pleased With Purchase

Kevin Keegan has praise Newcastle owner Mike Ashley for his decision to buy the club ahead of Leeds and believes that he is now starting to see that he made the right decision following a fourth win in five matches and the support that the Toon Army offered the side in the victory over Sunderland on Sunday: 'I read somewhere that he could have bought Leeds or Newcastle, so I just said to him, 'Aren't you lucky you bought Newcastle?' Keegan said.

'No disrespect to Leeds, but you just can't buy that. He has, but you can't normally buy an atmosphere like that in a stadium.

'You have never heard anything like that at the end. I don't care how many times you come to the stadium, when it goes like that and you hear them singing, it's absolutely the only place in the world to be, as far as I am concerned.

'I have played at Liverpool and I have played in derbies, I have played in the Maracana, I have played in the Nep Stadium, but this is the best place in the world when you are winning.

'It's a tough place if you are not going well, but hey, they are the rules of the game.'

I'm sure that Mike Ashley is now more than pleased with his investment in the Toon, and did make the right choice with his investment. With some heavy investment finically wise from Ashley in the summer transfer window with the way the club is set-up could this sleeping giant could once and for all be woken up to be the true force it potentially could be?
