An apology from Ashley at last
Following his Managing Director`s half-arsed statement yesterday, the club seem to have reacted to the negative feedback from this and realised a statement from the Chairman himself. Speaking on the official site, Mike Ashley said:
'Seeing Newcastle United relegated from the Premier League has been a catastrophe for us all. I fully accept that mistakes were made during this and previous seasons and I am very sorry for that.
I would like to say sorry to our magnificent supporters who have turned up in their thousands, home and away, up and down the country and who have given the team amazing backing throughout.
And I would also say sorry to all of the club's hard-working staff, who have gone about their jobs all year long. Bringing Alan Shearer back to Newcastle United was the best decision I have made. Alan and his staff did all they could to try and keep us up in the short space of time they had. Talks are now ongoing on how we can take this club forward.'
Again, closing the stable door after the horse is 100 miles down the A1 springs to mind.
