Has anybody actually got something with some substance about how much his free advertising is costing the club annually?
"Elsewhere, at worst, modern commercial football could be seen as the mall rather than the circus; insidiously bland, decaffeinated and pre-packed, its relentless formulaic repetition an instrument for disabling consciousness rather than manipulating it."

It was almost as if he was doubling down against the potential unrest towards him.

I’m amazed nobody has ever been able to quote how much we’re “losing” from it given it should be in previous accounts?

There's a stat about how we're the only Premier League club whose commercial income hasn't increased in the last decade.

Greetings from footymad  :D




Only up to the season before last but commercial income will probably show a growth of about 3p in fatso's time here.

How the hell has match day income dropped off in the last 10 years? Id guess were the only club in that situation as well.

In an ideal world we'd be able to say "Its probably because the matchday staff are getting generous yearly raises and bonuses well above inflation, which is keeping the costs high."

But it's Ashley so it's safe to assume that's not happening.

I cancelled my sky because of this odious cretin and I've just had the survey through. I have made sure that I have filled in every free text box that their love-in with the obnoxious man child is the reason I quit them.

If I recall it’s because Ashley has out sourced everything to private companies (Programs, Catering, Bars etc) so it doesn’t matter if 1 person goes to the game or 52k go to the game the money is the same set (low) amount. So all the profits go to the private companies. I’ll not insult your intelligence further by telling you who owns these private companies and gets most of the money instead of the club being able to maximise it. All I will say is guess who wins again :lol:

Dennis Wise at it again on SSN this morning. Said some will have a go at Ashley no matter what he does. As if we're picking on poor Mike with no justification. He criticised Man Utd for them not bringing in players to close the gap on City/ keep up with Liverpool but when it came to discussing NUFC it was 'What's wrong with clever buying and selling?' or words to that effect. He went on to say 'Even Rafa said he was happy with the transfer window' overlooking the fact that Rafa can only say so much and was under an amount of duress when putting his name to that club statement last week.

"Unfortunately whatever he does, he will constantly take stick. It's as simple as that," said Wise, who spent just over a year as an executive director early in Ashley's tenure at St James' Park

"There are a lot of people out there that don't help the situation. They want to bring it onto him.

"People complain about them not spending enough money but if you trade well at a football club and you're able to bring players in and take players out and make money, I don't see what the problem is with that."

"I thought they competed extremely well against Spurs," Wise told Sky Sports News.

"I look at Newcastle and I think they're a team who will be in a comfortable position by the end of the season.

"I think Rafa's actually turned around and said they have improved their squad so that says it all really doesn't it?"
