23rd May 2007 was a day few people remember but a day that changed the course of Newcastle United. It was ten years ago this week that billionaire sports retailer Mike Ashley decided to buy a football club. Our football club.
In the time since Newcastle United have been relegated twice, his ownership has alienated thousands, he returned the club to European football and will now likely fill St James’ Park more than any time since pre-2004. We want to know where you now stand on Mike Ashley? The club stand on the precipice of one of it’s most exciting ever seasons with the most qualified manager the club has had in it’s history ready to take on the Premier League.
Let us know if you’re still staying away and why? What would it take for you to come back under Ashley? Maybe all is forgiven as if Rafa’s happy with Ashley, we should be happy? Comments will be used for an article in a future true faith issue this season as we look at where we stand with Mike Ashley in charge.
All views welcome.
