'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Shepherd on Ashley

Revealed to the Stock Exchange this morning was Freddie`s opinion of the Ashley takeover, with a positive outlook given for the future:

'The time since Newcastle's flotation in 1997 has seen a radical transformation in the club and its fortunes, with the club now being one of the 20 wealthiest clubs in Europe with one of the finest stadiums in European football, a Premier League participant and a regular participant in European UEFA competitions with a fantastic fan base.

The offer from SJHL is at a level which fully reflects both the performance of Newcastle and its prospects and ambitions for the future.The board believes that SJHL and Mike Ashley will be excellent custodians of Newcastle United's heritage and will provide the best possible opportunity for the club to flourish in the future, to the benefit of the company and its fans.'

To quote Neville Chamberlain - "peace in our time". It looks like the Streetfighter has hung up his Rocky headband and glass covered gloves and accepted it with dignity!
