Why is everyone so against Mike Ashley taking over ITFC? 21:39 - May 25 with 4149 viewsBrixtonBlue

He couldn't do a worse job than Evans, surely? He has pots of money. Morally and ethically we're already well down the river.

So what's the issue?

He's employed crap managers and underfunded his team. Sound familiar?
On top of that, he's a piece of sh1t.

It's ok, he's got pots of money (made off the back of those people he employs on the minimum possible conditions with borderline illegal welfare practices). But that's fine if he can pay Toto £5m a year.

Rafa Benitez crap?

I'll take his level of crapola.

Underfunded?

Spent £65m last summer

Ok so not Massive City level is spending...

Questionable employment practices?
People have a choice (of sorts) whether they work for his companies
Are his contracts legal?

Personally I think he carries less baggage than the Saudis who are replacing him.

He is not exactly Mr Popular, for very good reasons.

But many of the people that lambast him would overlook worse behaviour if the perpetrator was a skilful winger or goal scorer.

I haven’t checked, but I suspect he also leaves Newcastle in better shape than he found them (?)

It’s a no from me, but doesn’t trigger flounce mode 11 either.

Then again most wingers and strikers don't operate modern workhouses.

But still, I'd have a huge problem with them if they did.

If the Saudi’s are giving Mike Ashley money for Newcastle, and he takes some of the Money and buys ITFC....

If it happens I won't be supporting ITFC again until he's gone.

I'll be in a minority and it will kill a part of my soul to make that choice, but any good moment for the club would feel tainted under his leadership.

If I even saw that pr1ck on the pitch at Portman Road I think my p1ss would boil.

Evans isn't exactly a patron saint of business.

Saying that though, Evans to Ashley is like jumping from Ian Huntley to Fred West.

On a human level, he is horrendous.

What I have noticed about Mike Ashley over the last 4/5 years, he has run a fairly good football club at Newcastle. I think he has learnt a lot from his early tenure mistakes, something Evans unfortunately hasn't

He had Rafa Benitez (Champions League winner, Napoli, Real Madrid manager) in the Championship, that's quite remarkable. Made some big money signings in recent times.

I think you would do a lot worse than him.

Counts as freshly laundered...

But then I'd take their money if it meant we could finish above the likes of Manure, Massive Etc again.

Obvs. I'd prefer someone nice and ethically clean... But then even Jesus got convicted of something didn't he?

He is a crook. He manipulates laws to delay publishing accounts. He treats his staff like dogs and takes full advantage of them. That’s just the start. I would not want him anywhere near us and it goes against everything we should stand for as club.
