Loyal but frustrated Magpie ToonNoMatterWhat is the renowned quiz master for TalkOfTheTyne. The questions he asks now are more searching..........
It's Bank Holiday and always a good time for a take away but when
t's a joke term and what i really mean is a take over, is this good for the club and us fans in general?
Analyzing in ToTT fashion, we on this board are biased and would take Hitler if he was still around but scouring the other forums or debate rooms, opinion is split over Ashley's tenure here.
The official line is that there is no truth in any takeover talk and Ashley is here for the foreseeable future, with our boss having 5 years left on his contract also but the whispering few are the one's with the real explanation and more than likely to be true in what is spouted...
Too many times have we heard certain stories regarding players or managers, even deals/sponsorships etc happening before they do, which are dismissed before then being confirmed, for us not to listen to rumour but what can you do eh?
Ashley is gaining credit from certain members for seemingly steadying the ship here but after his calamity of mistakes in his first couple of years or so (including a botched attempt of a sale), is it just a case of getting the house in order, ready for our new tenants?
My personal opinion is that im sick of the regime here and im starting to lose the will to go back to St James', how the hell we can sell so many season tickets is beyond me and this opinion won't change.
Too many decisions are baffling, including some team performances, which aren't really their fault because its like expecting a bricklayer to build a wall without cement..
A certain ingredient is missing, which in our case sticks out like a sore thumb. our regime can't see it or refuse to do something about it (in our case it being at least 2 strikers for a start) and are gambling with our future as we may yet go down.. unlikely but still not impossible..
These decisions coupled with the fickleness of some fans to support no matter what is damaging what future we could have as the fans pay the same money regardless of whether they are getting value for it.
Ten year season tickets price freezes may seem a good deal on paper but what do people think they'll get for that? as this ain't no Keegan/John Hall era, where surprise major signings will happen but mediocrity and basement buys/loans will be more than likely instead. not what id be tempted to part with my hard earned for...
So all in all, a takeover will revitalise my love for the club and bring hope back to my life.. if only everyone shared this view then we could oust this failing regime and get those indians in now.. If god was a geordie this will happen .. So please god.. over to you.
Agree? if not, why not?
