Fair point, they certainly wanted out though. Was thinking more about the brands he acquired for Sports Direct etc.

 

I'm also suspicious of someone both Newcastle fans and sports direct shareholders dont want involved in their respective organisations. 

 


When Ashley bought NUFC their finances were a ticking time bomb. He did well to sort that out but has since got stuck in a very conservative mentality where everything makes business sense but doesn’t really get the pulse racing in terms of trying to achieve.

You've enjoyed the last 3 seasons then?. Its been an utter shambolic disaster.


No. But unlike you I can bear to take a view on DC on his whole tenure rather than being selective.

 

For what it’s worth I think he’s made some bad decisions and has some odd ideas. I think he put the Cowleys off and Bruce had a tough time trying to convince him to move players on. 
 

I would be open to a change for the right owner. But I can recognise that there are worse owners we could’ve had seeing as we are not the first club to go through this. It’s cyclical, Forest had numerous seasons in the middle of the league after a few seasons challenging when financial rules begin to bite, Derby are the same as us yet most would suggest Mel Morris has done ok there. Forest are now back up there again and even with everything we had going on we were 3rd at xmas.

 

Seeing as we were also rans when he picked us up and we changed that for a period of time for the better. I don’t think that should be forgotten just because people are fed up with the current situation.

 

Time for a change? Quite possibly, but have we gone backwards to a worse state than when he arrived. I’m not sure we have as long as he does right by us on leaving.

Do I think Ashley would put Wednesday at the top of his list for potential EFL clubs to buy - Yes

 

Do I think Chansiri would put a realistic price tag on the club to sell - Absolutely not

Based on our current progress yes

So getting relegated is better than staying in the same division.

Some of you actually hate Chansiri so much you would rather have Ashley.

Fair enough. It's about opinions.

My opinion is you are idiots.

I'm not sure that buying a club for £35m, spending £150m on taking it 5 places lower in the league, then selling it for £35m is a glowing example of how football business should be done to be fair

 

Is buying a club that regularly finished in the top 6 in the Premier League, turning them into a club that are happy with the aim of avoiding relegation and managing to get them relegated twice in a decade a glowing example of how to make a success of a football club?

Can’t even see Chansiri talking to him about a deal after what Ashley did with Bruce - but saying that we did get Murphy and allegedly 4 million quid  so maybe he would do business with him. I can imagine DC wanting to really make him pay top whack for us though and maybe try and keep a part ownership of the ground or something like that.

But you clearly know better than everyone

I don't think Mike Ashley would buy Wednesday and be happy to sit back and watch it lose the amount of money it's losing at the moment.

 

There's only one way to make sure that doesn;t happen.

The key to promotion out of this league is hiring a top manager. Ashley has always had decent managers at Newcastle... we’ll apart from Joe Kinnear

Ask the Thai billionaire family 

We're in a worse position now than then.

DC bought us for 39m he'll be asking for more than twice that to sell.

Seriously who would unless you're an out & out  Wednesday fan with money to burn.

I get that point and yeah you're right,he does seem to have the knack of getting em back up,I'm not for him nor against him I'm just sick of feeling like this maybe it's just me but I don't see us changing under chansiri and it's not enjoyable to watch surely that we agree on

Mike Ashley is an absolutely AWFUL football club chairman, and would be the same at any other club/level

 

Don’t really know why this thread has plundered along without many people saying this, trying to make out he’s some potential hero just because you don’t like DC is pretty phuking embarrassing aswell

He was interested in taking a player to Newcastle during his time there, problem was he was already n their books and out on loan

I would have to do a greater amount of due diligence to answer that question definitively. He seems to have more basic football chairman skills than Chansiri but his general loathsomeness is a huge drawback. I wouldn't want Donald Trump in charge either but that doesn't make Chansiri any less ineffective. 

 

Due diligence !? :ohmy:

 

Not in this thread pal, There's so many straw men laying around in these 20 pages it's like the Somme in autumn 1916.
