Here’s a good tweet starting with Newcastle fans’ comments and then Jeremy Corbin talking about clubs who have been ruined by bad owners – like Mike Ashley.

“Amongst his comments, Mr. Corbyn accused ‘billionaire owners like Mike Ashley’ of ‘ruining our national game’, claiming these ‘bad owners’ put their ‘business interests above everything else’ and risk their clubs’ financial security.” “In overlooking existing governance and regulation, as well as the hugely positive impact – Newcastle United and other professional clubs have in their communities, Mr. Corbyn has demonstrated a “surprising lack of knowledge about our national game.” “We feel, therefore, it is important to address his damaging and misinformed opinions in the interests of the club and its supporters.” “Financially, other than sums provided to the club on a short-term, interest-free basis and repaid to him as intended, we would like to make it clear that Mike Ashley has not taken a penny out of Newcastle United in interest, salary or dividend, as is customary at many clubs.” “As stated on numerous occasions before, every penny Newcastle United has will continue to be available to it.



Here’s the statement from the club: “We are disappointed by comments made by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn at the weekend regarding football governance and club ownership, in which he specifically attacked Newcastle United.



Over the weekend Jeremy Corbyn criticized some owners in football today and said they are ruining some clubs.

Mike Ashley needs to sell Newcastle and get out of football club ownership for which he is totally unsuited.

The club is also financially sustainable – that’s true too.

So the statement above is all about finances – we want a good team to be challenging for a trophy – we haven’t won a trophy since 1969.
