Adding to the charm?
Adding to the charm?
It’s been reported that Newcastle have agreed to bring in Ampersand, a Liverpool-based marketing agency, in order to push for new sponsorship. Amid the furore which followed Ashley’s latest ill-timed and ill-fated decison to rename St James’, it would seem the deal was agreed based on Ampersand impressing the board with their work which went into a similar project for Everton. Apparently they too are a client of Ampersand, who have been involved in the renaming rights for their new stadium planned to be built in Kirkby.

However, they’ll also be pushing other channels as many of our sponsorship deals come to a close at the end of the season, and they will be looking particularly at a new shirt sponsor. It would appear the club has confirmed the appointment but declined to comment any further. However, managing director of Ampersand Emma Blackmore said they would be working in close partnership with the club over the next 12 months.

Though it probably won’t surprise the fans, it seems slightly back-to-front to not get the experts in first before the recent .com@St James’ Park fiasco? Or perhaps they were working on their advice? Slight worrying?

Presumably, one of the first things Ampersand will want to do is work with the club and seek assurances that the waters are calmed to ensure the environment is conducive to effective marketing. Starting with a rendition of the scouse parody where they take to the streets on matchday, curly wigs atop their brows, gesticulating with their ‘calm down’ hands and coining the well-worn cliche? Maybe Terry Mac will come back for some pointer sessions?

Maybe not…..

  1. I would like to wish them all the luck in the world – They will need it.

    I’m not too sure how there going to  put a positive spin  on the current goings on at the club. 

  2. A good idea, but if they had anything to do with the stadium name change i wouldn’t feel very confident…

  3. Time heals.
    We might not win a trophy, but the scars will atrophy.
    Oh well, someone had to say it.

    Batty confessed to me last night on messenger – he is Ed’s hate blogger!
    He ended up arguing with Ed over Rodzilla’s banning – he was threatening him by email!
    Shame on you – you scumbag.<<<< lol you never miss a trick do you <

  5. Lets wait and see hoe Good they are I want them to strike a good deal that we cant refuse. Which can make us a better club.

  6. Am new here. I was at Ed’s calling myself “will die for the toon army” but I think am old for that now.

  7. is it Karma that newcastle supremo hires a liverpool PR firm and then the liverpool teams PR takes a nosedive?
    completely irrelevant but says to me that the universe is speaking!
    :)

  8. c f …we are both very good friends of stardust and hold the same views regarding the tramp that owns newcastle … so yes  i can see how you could think we are one …. but i can assure you there’s only one mr stavers….and that aint me.

    ….i only ever go by one nickname.

  9. Komfort – I said to Troy ages ago that I must know you – but youve never shown your colours and T’s holding it in (nothing that 8 pints of Stella wont sort lol). I worked out who Geordie Lander was in the end lol – next its you!

  10. MacT – Good to see you around fella. Aye, bullchit really.

    worky and Hugh have a lot of the spam stuff sussed on here but I guess there’s only so much you can do when you don’t have dedicted moderators.

  12. This is a copy of my post on Ed’s site and posted here in the hope that the stupidity we’ve seen on Ed Harrison’s swansong article is not repeated on this one.

    There is so much potential for sensible discussion and let’s hope that the morons who detracted from the other blog do not inflict similar damage to this one!!

    Copy post.

    Batty.  You’re being a complete prat by spoiling what may be Ed’s penultimate article and an opportunity for us all to say our fond farewells to the guy.
    I trust that you manage to restrain the temptation to ruin in the other site to which I’m copying this.

  14. stardust … though you do spin some turkish on the blogs , i know you haven’t got a bad bone in your body xx ….. and i must say the transformation (thanks to you) in stuart79 is unbelievable.

    Lol.

    I’m still waiting to give it to Ashley with both barrells come Febuary 1st if we’ve done no business in Jan.

    I just happen to think the only way we’ll get rid of him is if were promoted.

    I still hate the man, I still want him out and as things stand at the moment I don’t think we’ll get promoted.  But we’ll have to see how things pan out in January won’t we?

  16. LESH click on my name then click on the other batty then u will see its not me so stop the name calling on eds blog

  17. batty …. you really need to calm your passions m8 , you must be getting dizzing racing from ed’s to here and back again….chill.

  18. Re batty at and re 49, this is a copy of may post on Ed’s blog for the information of all.

    “Batty @176 – if it aint you, then please accept my apologies and assuming you know the identity of imposter batty, perhaps you can deal with that as he/ she/ it is not doing your reputation any good at all.
    “Will the real batty please stand up.”
     

  19. what time does worky normally make an appearance ?….is he busy getting dolled up to welcome all his new followers..

  20. batty – who is pretending to be you on Ed’s farewell log? I notice that they have a different hyperlink.

  21. Is anyone else intrigued as to the identities of the ‘wealthy, influential and substantive investors’ are who are wanting to join forces with NUST and buy NUFC??

    I wasn’t aware they had serious investors lined up too.  Has a better chance of working I suppose with real investors as well as fan investment.

  22. Batty tell me was it you ? as we both know some of the sh1te that has went on on Eds blog but he doesn’t deserve that buddy ?

  23. Worky > I hope it isn’t a certain ex Chairman from Byker.
    I cant see him clubbing in with the fans can you ?

  24. Worky,

    He wouldn’t!  Would he?

    I can imagine him lapping up the ‘knight in shining armour’ bit though.

  25. worky … i wouldn’t be suprised if his little fat fingers were in the pie….talking of pies i know a couple of old bangers who get paid £400 each to perform a lesbo act for a certain gentleman with the initials of KS….like father like son as they say. i’m not joking by the way.

  26. big dave go click on the hyperlink to my name they were also posting under stardust  as well but i dont know how they have done it my hyperlink has sky sports on m8

  27. Batty your words enough mate, yeah I seen Stardusts aswell I had a funny feeling it was someone Pissin about. I just thought it was sad that someone would go to that much bother, as we dont allways agree with the Edlines but he has done a lot of work for the Fans. I’ll catch you later must go do that overrated shit thing that puts the money into the better halves bank account lol.

  28. Yeah Batty – whoever it put in hyperlinks for us as nufcblog.com – mine is .org and yours skysports.
     
    But I wouldnt put it past you to have 6 accounts – so i will call you a rotter and tell you to stop anyway.
     
    Komfort – do the intials WP mean anything to you lol.

  29. No Batty – I wouldnt be disrespectful to Ed – it would be like kicking your Granda.

    Whoever’s doing it is a lowlife – wonder if it’s Ed getting us back lol

  30. Hi, iv’e moved over from Ed’s blog. Seemed the natural thing to do :). Its a shame his final farewell has ended up going the way it has though.

    Knight in shining armour eh Stu? Fat Freddies will more likely be a to55pot in tinfoil riding in on Shreks donkey! :D

    “I cant see him clubbing in with the fans can you ?”

    I don’t know Dave. Sometimes I think Fat Freddy would do almost anything to line his pockets if he thinks he can manipulate people and have majority control. Now the club’s relatively cheap but he’s still like a chihuahua trying to hump a Great Dane in terms of buying it outright, like Barry Moat. I don’t know, anything could happen at that place, the whole squad could be abducted by aliens but I wouldn’t be that surprised anymore.

  33. BORING !  somewhat incestuous love in, anyone wanna talk about something interesting, maybe football.
     
     

  34. Hi guys
    You have another new recruit. Lifelong fan since I was seven which wasn’t yesterday. have seen the best and worst the toon has had to offer and had many smiles and heartbreak on the journey.
    I guess there is more of the same to come over the next few seasons

  35. Batty
    Depends pal,
    Just been on Ed`s blog to thank him and wish him well, then I came across the merde, attributed to you.
    However I  believe it when you deny it was  your doing.
    Pretty nasty stuff.

  36. Typical, Ashley hires a Scouse marketing agency who can’t even design a decent logo for themselves. The omens aren’t good!

  37. stardust…WP….. yes batty springs  to mind as in the scuffed winkle pickers he wears with his (lonsdale ) trackie bottoms and his shiny maroon coloured drape (minus 15 buttons) & complete with his hair greased back into a tidy ducks arse….this presentable chap can normally be found outside sports direct @ st james park on match days with a black bin liner selling almost everything you could possibly want.

    ….tip if you do purchase anything from him avoid the razor blades…i’m convinced he  uses them himself then tries to resell them. he’s had many a complaint from customers when a  nasty rash appears round their gregory pecks.

  38. batty your a nice lad and very approachable but it does put the punters off a bit when you start rambling on about that arab man down at man city…

    “Worky,

    You’re dead right there, Stuart.

    I think he’d like the modern version though, a helicopter into the centre circle. Like Keegan in reverse.

  40. Batty and all, yeah I’ve had a read of alot of articles and BBM defo does some good work,

    ANYWAY you obviously have a name faker here pretending to be me but like always these internet heros have their anonominity (ermm summit like that)

    It’s annoying but the faker has a sense of humour! for a headdick
