ElCid will be telling us that booing Ayoze doesn’t effect his confidence either. News flash, people care.

Maybe if you read my post about the booing you may not have showed yourself up by putting that.

Saying he doesn't care is the easy out for people to just do nothing.

Very much this.

Well you'll have to forgive me for thinking that your opinion's absolutely s**** then ElCid. :lol: Everyone's got an opinion, it means nowt if you've got nothing whatsoever to back it up.

As usual the 'he doesn't give a s*** man!' point has migrated to 'he hasn't sold the club though!' - aye, no s***, but that wasn't your original point. It's always the way whenever this stuff is presented to people.
Dead in the middle of Little Italy little did we know that we riddled some middle men who didn't do diddely.

And I think your opinion is total s**** also my original point has and always has been that the broadcast was not because of any January window embargo, protests or any boycotts - your spectrum and my spectrum of thought are miles apart and always have been -  these things happen move on.

Not one thing backed up your opinion - the man is still at the club, still refusing to put anything in and still refusing to go until someone pays the price he is looking for - now they are actual facts that's not opinion.

My opinion that Ashley gives a s*** isn't backed up with any of those things? :lol: He must have hired a PR company, went on Sky, spent £80m as a direct result of the Spurs boycott, tried to appease SD shareholders, put out statements talking about not protesting, took the squad out for a meal, sent out cease and desists, stuck his Vs up at protesters, asked them to leave him alone, either all for s***s and giggles or to show everyone just how much he doesn't care then. Absolutely laughable that you would look at all that and still try and claim he doesn't care.

You carry on though - opinions based on that winning combination of arrogance and ignorance.

I’m not sure Ashley not selling the club has a direct correlation to how much the protests annoy him. If the protests spark any action at all (backing the manager, not doing stupid things like renaming the stadium etc) then they have value. The whole “it’s pointless, he’s not sold us yet so obviously he never will” is up there with “support the team, not the regime” as one of the most annoying phrases on here.

No your original post that triggered this exchange was...


"He does not give one f*** unfortunately about any boycott"

Now would a boycott force him to sell? Maybe not, but as KI has proved, any action against him does result in a response. So he does give a f*** and you are wrong.

Sorry I disagree he's still at the club, no investment and won't sell unless his price is met - he actually started to turn up to matches as a f*** you to the support and then the fat f***er made sure he was was seen laughing at the protests. If the protests were something like West Ham did last season or people actually ditched their season tickets then that probably would be different and have an effect. He has the money in his pocket - he knows the vast majority of the support won't protest or boycott anyway - so as I said I disagree if people think that's a load of s*** fair enough eveyone is entitled to an opinion.

Of course it backed up his opinion, everytime there was a protest or he has been confronted, there has been some kind of reaction from Ashley. Clearly it has not been enough for him to sell, but there has still been a reaction.....he is one of the most thin skinned people in around.
For what it's worth, I think he may actually sell this time around, mainly because he needs the money for other ventures.....but the protests have definitely got under his skin, they have in the main changed the media rhetoric against him, and he has nowhere to go this time.

This is all part of the "Mike Ashley Reality Show".  Right now, MA is cackling demonically, watching the press' whirling dervish.
It is my intent to purchase NUFC as soon as possible with the fullest extent of my personal wealth which may not be all that much right now, and may never be, but I stand by my statement nonetheless.

If i was an prospective buyer, i'd be more concerned with takeovers being made public knowledge affecting the team so risking relegation than any protests.

Although considering it's likely bullshit anyway i expect they are leaking it to the press themselves.

For some reason this morning I decided, instead of working on my dissertation, to watch the first half an hour of Ashley's recent grilling by MPs. For years we've talked about what a prick he is, based almost entirely on our experiences of him as a football owner... but watching him publicly shout and ball and squirm and gesticulate really makes it a reality. He really is a deeply unpleasant person and one of those that, regardless of all the NUFC and Sports Direct stuff, you just wouldn't want to spend five minutes in the company of. Massively defensive, massively argumentative, just a rancid ball of hot air.

Incidentally, having watched that, it couldn't be more obivous now that the Sky News feature that followed (including the section with the pre-rehearsed purring about selling the club) was clearly set up in his favour. Ten minutes of questions which simply played into his hands and stroked his ego. "HMMMM." Urgh.
