    Mike Ashley

    https://www.nufc.co.uk/news/latest-n...iew-statement/

    Newcastle United owner, Mike Ashley, has issued the following statement in relation to the Premier League's current pay-per-view arrangements:
    "I am calling on the Premier League to immediately act and review its current pay-per-view arrangements for live matches in the UK.
    "Charging £14.95 for single televised matches in the current climate it is not acceptable to any football fan.
    "Supporters have overwhelmingly rejected this offer and the Premier League must now act.
    "Why not make it much more accessible at £4.95 per match until Christmas?
    "The Government should waive VAT on the above pay-per-view matches so that as many of those who are unable to attend matches in person can at least watch their team.
    "The profit from the above reduced-price pay-per-view option, I would suggest that 50% would be retained by Premier League and 50% would go to the football pyramid below.
    "As a club, Newcastle United did vote in favour of the pay-per-view proposal, but to be clear, this was because there were no realistic or any viable alternatives put forward to enable supporters to watch matches."

    The man's a cłnt. This is for his benefit. By all accounts, take our match against Man U. They say 40000 paid 14.99 that's just under 600 grand. Now imagine if just the gates of both clubs had paid a fiver thats 127000 fans so its 635 grand.
    So for a fiver he wants this like his tat shops. More pay less and it amounts to more than those that pay more. Mike Ashley does nothing that wont benefit him in the long run.
    The optimist wants to believe its one last go at the PL before he sells up but the realist might say he's finally given up and is having a go in retaliation for the corrupt bąstards screwing him over.

    He voted for the £14.95 in the first place, Only Leicester City voted against it. Agree with above post. It is about profit.

    I agree with him on this. But does he really....?

    The cnt does nothing unless there is something to gain. I love the photo of him, Bishop and Penfold sitting alone in the stadium in masks.

    That should have happened when Rafa went.
