Ashley sells Toon.... on web


MIKE ASHLEY turned Newcastle into a football joke yesterday.

He put the club up for sale for 100million - and asked would-be buyers to put in offers by e-mail!

It is as if interested parties are bidding for an item on online auction site ebay.

The under-fire Toon board found themselves bombarded by fake mickey-taking offers from fans all over the country, laughing at desperate owner Ashley's efforts to dump the ailing Geordies.

Ashley wanted anyone interested to contact football finance fixer Keith Harris - or give the e-mail option a go on the Newcastle United web page.

And that led to jokers like one Sunderland fan making contact, saying: "I would like to lodge an official bid to buy NUFC.

"The amount I am offering is 10. Should I be successful, I will be appointing myself as team manager, as I am currently in a management role in the Peterlee Sunday League."

Another quipped: "The amount I am offering is 2 x upper concourse seats for the Oasis concert at the Stadium of Light and a Curly Wurly."

Newcastle supporters were not laughing, though, and reacted in horror to this latest humiliation.

One disgusted Geordie said: "If ever any proof was needed of Ashley's total lack of class and crass stupidity, this e-mail fiasco provides it.

"He is a blundering buffoon who needs to be driven out of this great football club."

:haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha:
