NUST unveil glittering array of major business players.

NUST Spokesman, Mark Jensen.
The Newcastle United Supporter’s Trust have today named the financial advisors who will guide them in their battle to oust current owner, Mike Ashley from the club.

First cab off the rank is the Delphi Partnership. They are a corporate finance business based in London, but they have strong North East connections through partner, John Sands, a former North East “Executive of the Year”, and neighbour of former Toon owner, Sir John Hall.

The second company to be unveiled is Whickham firm, the HRC Group, a financial management company. They will work with the NUST on compliance issues, which have been a major stumbling block for the NUST so far.

It was also announced that Leeds accountants, Hentons, have been working with the trust in an advisory role. NUST also announced that the Trust have also been working with a “leading Newcastle legal firm”, however their idendity is been kept a closely guarded secret at this stage.

On the grand unveiling, NUST spokesman, Mark Jensen said:

“Our partners have a proven track record in providing the very best advice and we will be announcing further partners in the next weeks.

“We’re entering an exciting phase and since the current owners have set out their exit strategy we are keen to speed up our campaign and ensure the legal position is portrayed correctly.

“Having read some comments attributed to the club, we would assure them that we’ve thought about how we develop the club and re-connect it with its community and our plans when finalised will demonstrate that.”

Meanwhile, local newspaper, The Chronic have quoted a “source close to the Trust” as saying:

“We know the fans need to play an integral part in the re-birth of the club and we feel the current playing staff have really performed, including the manager Chris Hughton, but the uncertainty created by Mr Ashley’s commitment to put the club back on the market may destabilise that.

“We want to assure fans, players and the current manager that we back their efforts 100% and we’re confident the fans will consistently amaze the rest of the footballing world with their loyalty.”

Though at the time of writing, Mr Ashley has not made any announcement of a commitment to put the club back on the market after the previous two failed attempts.

Meanwhile, some confusion has also arisen as to whether the NUST’s proposed bid will be for the whole club, or merely part of it. Writing in the Tuesday’s Times, in a piece called “It’s time to end the negativity in the North East” that was also published on the NUST website, North East football writer, George Caulkin announced:

“At some stage, the NUST will seek to purchase a portion of the club from Mike Ashley. For the record, they are well aware that they cannot buy Newcastle outright; the aim is to take a percentage and build from there.”

However the NUST website only mentions that they are seeking full control of the club, and indeed, it is highly doubtful that any part ownership could work after the outspoken statements by the Trust on Ashley’s tenure as owner of Newcastle United, and their stated intention to eventually drive him out of the club completely.

    BBOORRIINNGG!!!!

    your biggest rival Ed is back for anybody who doesnt know
    <<<<<< ive crushed him once ile do it agen lol

  2. At least you don’t get those annoying pop-ups every few minutes. Having said that I think there is enough room in this town for both blogs.
    As for NUST they might have improved their odds a little but I still think if they were running in the Grand National they would be something like 500 to 1 or whatever the current odds system is. 50000% ?

  3. This blog even gets Batty to be polite – 90 % of the time!

    To be fair re the above – its the biggest non event in history – I think the headline is too subtle Worky – you have to remember their target market for funds – they arent the brightest.

  4. batty clearly your on the payroll and intend to sabotage ed’s blog at the earliest opportunity – shameful.

    <<<<< its got nowt too do with u komfort

  7. sirjasontoon dont u find it funny when people attack others using other nicks where ive always attacked people under batty

  8. I just stopped posting there Batty – a long time ago – too many Edlines aimed at sensationalism – undermining the club etc without due thought to the ramifications against NUFC in the hunt for more hits.

    Thats nothing I havent said to Ed directly so I am not speaking out of turn. But he did seem to mellow at the end and his posts on many blogs lately have been objective.

  9. Yep Batty – I can vouch for that – we used to have some right howlers and you always posted under “Batty” – oh and “Batty the Tranny” when the mood took you lol.

  10. it’s obvious you and your senses parted company some time ago – make a doctors appointment asap.

  11. Only person on here that get’s on my nerves is wickywoo calling me a racist :)
    Least you can take a joke Stardust we may not agree on many things but that is what makes the blog have some substance.

    Batty bash who y’like mate with my blessing…start with Jockey Wickywoo first please!

  12. NUST reveal “nothing”

    Well I have it on good authority from a source, who can not validate these rumours so take them with a pinch of salt – that Douglas Hall and Freddie Shepherd are behind the scheme. They are to use the fans money to buy the club back – They are using Sands as a front man as Ashley wont sell to them. As I said I can not confirm this personally – just a rumour.

    <<<<<< mellowed he turned judas against the toon slagging king kev

  14. sjt re wickywoowoo…..couldn’t agree more.

    …funkyjesus put that in your tartan pipe & puff on it.

  15. stardy no 1 beleived me when i said he was opening up agen a few days ago plus me and ed have come too an agreement i just do what i want on there and he dusent get spammed cos he knows he cant ban me lol

  16. Not really paid a great deal of attention to NUST to be honest.
    In a perfect world I would love to see fan ownership but this is the real world and it certainly won’t happen with these guys…fair play for making some kind of effort though.

    I was thinking though if it all went arse over tit there would be some pensioners in serious financial trouble in the future.

  17. I like both blogs , think this blog is better for a good debate

    While eds blog is good for general information on anything that happens at the club

  18. So are you running Ed’s Blog Batty?
    Or helping out?

    I will have a gander now and again but this blog is far better,no offence to Ed though as his blog served us well over the years.

  19. Aw, come on Stardust – that’s as transparent an attempt at discrediting as I’ve ever seen. Not that it’s needed; NUST have dropped a big enough clanger this week that they don’t need external help.

    On that point, I think the first company NUST need to hire is a PR one. I think their actual plans (i.e. the bits NOT put together by the founders) are likely to be very good. It’s the communications that seem to generally suck hairies.

  20. Am I alone on here thinking that there is a reasonable chance (I’d say about 1 in 4) that within a couple of years NUST will have a meaningful (i.e. double-figure) shareholding in the club?

  21. sjt hes banned me 7 or 8 times in the past he changed it too log in sytem because of me poting under every 1s nicks so now i dont spam his blog and he leaves me alone :lol:

  22. To be fair – I much prefer this blog as Johnno says for the debate

    – its a shame SJT and Komfort have to bring the tone down with racists comments from time to time

  23. Yeah proper Racist me Stardust having a mixed race girlfriend as well s’pose that makes me a hypocrite too – Bozo !

    Check Malcolm Macdonalds second goal….Sam Allerdyce bangs in the first header :)

  24. “Yeah proper Racist me Stardust having a mixed race girlfriend as well s’pose that makes me a hypocrite too – Bozo !”

    lol looks like I caught me a SJTfish …..now where’s that Komfortfish

  25. sjt i tryed too get him too change his name on the heading to ED JUDAS HARRISON but he sed would rather keep it closed so i let him off on that 1 :lol:

  26. Stardust-:)

    Ed Judas – haha he seems a decent bloke Ed did suffer from blog overdose though and then the blog just went to bits.

    Long live nufcblog.org

  27. At least NUST have some balls which is more than some of the tossers on this blog have. Also when Ed decided to end his blog most of you wanted him to continue so hopefully you will all stay here and fight among yourselves like the little girls you are, so long suckers.

  28. lol yeah Batty BB is a good laugh when you know what way to take him. did you see my post lastnight 154 about when your talking to the youngun

    “worky have you seen the list off all the toon blogs forums on eds blog down the right hand side of the home page m8”

    I remember a list of Toon sites from all over the world, and another list of Toon sites on the other side, batty. Have they changed?

  36. “We’re entering an exciting phase and since the current owners have set out their exit strategy we are keen to speed up our campaign and ensure the legal position is portrayed correctly.”

    Have I missed something? I have heard no firm suggestion of any “exit strategy” by the current owners, just speculation! Is this another piece of BS akin to their “Mike Ashley makes £7million a month from Newcastle” statement?

    “We’re entering an exciting phase and since the current owners have set out their exit strategy we are keen to speed up our campaign and ensure the legal position is portrayed correctly.”

    “Have I missed something?”

    No Toonsy.

    I may be wrong, but I’m guessing that they may be referring to recent speculation in the newspapers that Mike Ashley will sell the club as soon as they are promoted? They refuse to have any contact with Ashley and / or Llambias ATM.

  38. Its another lie Toonsy – they havent said anything apart from the club was no longer for sale.

    NUST – are wanting to establish a trust? based on lies – Oh the irony.

  39. We could end up at the end of this transfer window with a smaller squad than when it started!

    That really will be pityful.

  40. Worky got a great title for an Article “trust in Me” with Sheer Khan in a black and white scarf from the Jungle Book – then we can write about all their lies

  41. Stardust says:
    January 15, 2010 at 6:55 pm

    “they havent said anything apart from the club was no longer for sale.”

    I’m only speculating again, but the only explanation I can think of is that if Ashley refuses to sell on their terms, they are going to make the fans rise up and declare war on the club until Ashley acceeds to their demands? I can’t think of anything else really.

  42. Stardust says:
    January 15, 2010 at 7:02 pm

    “Worky got a great title for an Article “trust in Me” with Sheer Khan in a black and white scarf from the Jungle Book – then we can write about all their lies”

    Stardust, sometimes I think you have taken copious amounts of LSD when you think these ideas up!

  43. Worky – that is exactly what they seem to be positioning to do – go to war on their own club?

    Boycott their own club to force him out!

    As I said Worky a long time ago – they need clipping down right now – thats why I dont like article titles as subtle as this – the numb nuts wont get it.

  44. Im completely with you on this one Stardust , this nust are gonna casue the club alot of trouble as they dont have a clue and i would be fearful of anyone giving them part of their pensions, its just all wrong from what i can see

  45. Stardust says:
    January 15, 2010 at 7:07 pm

    “I meant to say Kaa – not Shere Khan – anyway here is their Anthem lol”

    Surely you mean Shearer Khan?

  46. It’s a nothing story really.

    Like bragging about the solicitor that’s handling your divorce or the estate agent that’s selling your house, they don’t give a shit for you as long as you pay them.

  47. Batty, Just a suggestion, but one of the reasons why Ed gets a lot of hits is that his blog is easy to find being one of the few with the American flag. I’m not posting this as sarcasm or humour just a point as sometimes I have had to search a little to spot yours.
    I don’t know if the blog has to have a flag to indicate country of origin, if not why not use the national flag of Geordieland as yours. ;)

  48. Yeah we could have a little picture of Mike Ashley shitting allover the toon much better than a flag anyways :)

  49. 83 – Rangerman – but clueless people with no background or experience rely on the name of others to give themselves credibility – when in fact it highlights the contrary.

    Thats all NUST have done once more – put their hand in the air and figuratively said – We are clueless but these people who are getting loads of money from us, who are guiding us the wrong way, have experience (of over complicated advice when a simple cheap solution would have worked)

    Pint time.

  50. i find it absolutely unbelievable how you give stardust the time me day with his views. He absolutely howls at you lot at the way he manipulates you. He has no other agenda than to support ashley. This is the same creep who went on daily hissy fits about you lot not supporting ashley! He is over the moon that NUST have come along and is using them as a deflection. The great thing is, NUST, who im totally behind, and for the life of me, cant understand why the theory doesnt hit home with you lot, other than being dense, they are gathering momentum and i hope they destroy you little shmooks once and for all.

  51. I see the racism on here continues.

    The people on here know who I am referring to and to those people – you are a disgrace, you’re more like Sunderland fans.

  52. Evening Bobby Shitty Footballer (Shinton)
    Thought you would have been out for a pint of Skol lager.
    On the subject of NUST, IMO I can’t see them succeeding in either taking control or even obtaining a seat on the board.They will require somewhere in the region of £300M in order to buy it of Ashley, then they will require additional millions for the running of the club i.e transfers,contracts,development etc.
    No way would Ashley allow them a seat on his board.
    I have nothing personal against NUST but I believe that they are out of their depth and are misleading a lot of folk. Not Stardy though………….lol.

    Careful that may be heading into dangerous racial grounds Wickywoo.

  56. SJT,
    If I dared suggest that Scottish goalies have a history of being crap, do you think that I would be branded as a racist?

  57. TonyGreenSupreme,

    Yes, you would be racist. Because it is a racist thing to say. You would have to counter-act it by saying that Mike Ashley is a poor owner because he is English.

    “If I dared suggest that Scottish goalies have a history of being crap, do you think that I would be branded as a racist?”

    Our greatest goalkeeper was Scottish though, Tony.

    If you are referring to Jaz Lawrence where is your evidence. I would go for Given.

  61. You know me Batty always stirring up racial hatred on the blogosphere :)

    Be careful Mr Green that is the kind of comment that could spark blog riots.

    Yes, you would be racist. Because it is a racist thing to say. You would have to counter-act it by saying that Mike Ashley is a poor owner because he is English.

    I would say that it is a FACT that Scotland have a history of producing poor keepers, where is that a racist statement?

  63. If you can’t say the BNP level abuse you’re both spitting out, then I fear for your eternal souls.

  64. I thought the announcement today would unveil some of the partners who would be putting money into the scheme not those the NUST will be paying to do work for them.

  65. I was watching an old world cup game featuring Brazil and the commentator stated “Brazil have a history of producing relatively poor defences in comparison to their midfield and attack” – Does that make the commentator racist, er no it’s a fact. The Brazil teams rely on their midfield and forwards.

    Wickywoowoo – If you know anything about NUFC, look at the name that I use and look him up. One of the greatest footballers that I ever saw, and yes, he is SCOTTISH. Please do not accuse/suggest that I am a racist.

    Sorry Worky for going on – I am not prepared to be accused of committing a criminal offence by stating a footballing factual statement not based on ethnicity/origin/hatred/ignorance. Rant over.

  69. Hey, totally unrelated to anything at all, but does anybody 1) know a good recipe for stotties? and 2) wtf is a “murley’s pie”? Heard it sung in a song by Tim Readman but can’t find it on the internet…

    “lol, didn’t realize that Sand Dancer is a racist term, but I guess it makes sense… what else we supposed to call people from South Shields?”

    Chuck thinks everything’s racist O’Hurley. By a weird quirk of history, Shields has a thriving Yemeni community, and he thinks the term is having a pop at them.

  76. If it wasn’t true, you wouldn’t be upset by my comments.

    I think you have to take a good long look at yourself in the mirror and head to your nearest mosque for forgiveness.

  77. I knew about the Yemeni community (which is as weird a quirk as Nashville having a thriving Kurdish community as well as a thriving Sudanese community. That’s right- the home of country music and Elvis and all that. Go figure) so I guess the term “Sand Dancer” could be construed as racist, but only if they take offense.

  82. Toon_Factor says:
    January 15, 2010 at 11:52 pm
    ive got to say i much prefer this blog now

    >>>Agreed m8.

  83. That Wickywoo is a fecking idiot and anyone humouring him by falling for his intentional winding up by replying to him just adds to the problem.

    “You would have to counteract that by saying Mike Ashley is a poor owner because he is English”.

    That’s all fine and well, but it’s irrelevant considering the fact that they were scottish wasn’t a factor adding to the reason why they were poor, it was just sheer coincidental and the correspondence between all of the goalkeepers was that they were scottish.

    Say if 2 teams went on “The Apprentice” and they were seperated by colour, if the team of black people underperformed consistently, then it would not be considered an unfair or racist statement to say, “The black people are not as good as the white people”. As on the surface that is a red alert to any modern day over PC sensitive cretin, it’s not at all a racist comment as it doesn’t degrade the race of those people, it’s simply noting the feature which differentiates the two teams and eases specifying which team you’re talking about.

    Sorry to rant at such a time (I think i’m still hammered off last night) but if anyone saw that news report on the bloke who could have easily cleared a dangerous road with his tractor, he was told by the council he had to sign something like a 10 point contractual agreement – including having to have something like £5million worth of insurance and only have a certain type of light fitted on the traffic.

    It just boils my pish to see these people sitting up in their offices dreaming up new ways to install political correctness and “over equality” every where possible.

  84. On a side note I feel a tad bad for Ed loosing all of his bloggers to this site like, there’s no way that blog will have the craic it used to. I kind of feel like i’ve left a girlfriend with a speech impedement or some abnormality and hooked up with a stunner and the first one’s just started texting me again even though she had a nice personality… Yeah I am still hammered :)

  85. @batty what u have against Ed’s blog. I love this blog, even though have not commented regularly as going through some very busy times. But I still think that Ed’s blog was loved by everyone before he left. All were in favour of Ed continuing.

  86. Ed is Solano, always did his best and was loved for the most part, but he went away and did his own thing but now he’s back at Colchester and you think, hmmmm, howay, don’t just do it for the sake of it, we loved you but don’t milk it ya kna, we don’t wanna see you do badly and ruin those special memories…

  87. Think both blogs have differnet things that make them good , this blog is great for debate while eds blog was great for information. Dont see why people cant follow both if they want.

    Arent saturdays shit when newcastle arent playing? Its never the same

  88. It’s like anything times change-had some great banter on Ed’s blog but this place feels more local and has filled the void.Plus point on here the banter lasts longer with less posts.

    Will still post on Ed’s blog now and again but this is the place to be now.

    RIP Loven’Dad.

    No point spending money when we’re top of the table and don’t need to change the team, we just need to wrap up Simpson’s deal.

    Well we do need to get players in.

    As it stands, Tuesday morning our squad will have four players less than it had at the start of the month.

    Is that acceptable?

  95. Stuart – appreciate what your saying but at this time other than Barton – we are OK for injuries – signings are still possible for a couple of weeks, and then loans – I have faith in CH to at least get decent loans in.

  96. Batty think reading could be worth a punt today , dont have their price ( as in work and betting sites r banned ) but they be decent enough odds

  97. Cheers Stardust haha and aye Stu we do need some players in but personally I wouldn’t recommend much more than Simpson and possibly Harewood on loan or Chopra/Beckford

  98. spew79 – it’s not acceptable , i say a boycott until the fat sweaty b@stard leaves – of course that doesn’t apply to anyone on here coz you dont go anyway.

  99. The fact that were ok for injuries means we are due to get some in the second half of the season.

    I’d be happy with loan signings at the minute. But the things coming out of Hughton’s mouth ysterday was that were struggling to pay wages for new players.

    We will still need to pay wages for loan players so I’m a little concerned.

    We will definitely be at least one player down and that’s madness, considering were heading into the most important part of the season.

    These players have done really well, but when your legs go and you get tired, there’s nothing they can do and will effect their performance.

    We cannot expect them top play every minute of every game all season.

  100. I wonder if Royston knows where St James’ Park is.

    He’s probably never seen outside of Roy’s rolls.

    Keep buttering them bacon barms Royston. Oh and don’t forget to give Hayley a bl*w job too.

  101. andynufc – sounds like you had a cracker last night , what was it a half a larger & a couple off someone’s tab – you party animal ! stick sh infront of your name , it’ll be more appropriate.

  102. nice little treble here for yous reading liverpool ipswich odds aboot 16 to 1 notts a due a loss and reading are playing well

  103. Liverpool will draw without all their goalscorers and create players. Forest will win and the pressure on us on Monday will be huge. Neither us nor WBA will want to lose so that game will be a draw.

    Forest will be the winnersthis weekend.

  104. Wey aye Roy suck me mellons man I was blasting through a bottle of vodka and litres of cider before hitting up me big bag of weed and caffeine pills so stick that in your wife who has a severe lack of a natural vagina and smoke it.

  105. that is a bet batty! Im gonna go for readinf , pool draw , and i havent picked my last team yet , I only do 3 teams , think anymore and its dodgy

  106. Tell me the last time I was wrong.

    You must have one hell of a memory – Almost like an elephant – Man!

    <<<<< your wrong aboot giving ashley time your 1st veiws were right but u got that sick off people getting on to u you bottled it stu

  108. Stuart..I expected this window to be no different to any other under the Ashley regime,no it doesn’t make me happy as I don’t think this current squad now minus Harewood and Simpson is good enough to be promoted this season.

    Let’s get to the facts I am a geordie,supported newcastle all my life, why would Ashley not investing in my team make me happy?

  109. Wey aye Roy I wouldn’t dream of getting a job, and actually a went roond me grandma’s at 6 in the morning, woke a up to make iz a cuppa cause a was on a proper come down from me session and then rolled meself a 3 skinner and got me buzz on again, so stick that in your wife with fake tits and bloke’s hands and smoke it.

    I believe in giving people a chance – Is that wrong?

    If we don’t do anything this window and were promoted it will be despite Ashley.

    I’m concerned that our squad is going to be 4 players lighter than it was at the start of the season. Only at NUFC under Ashley could that happen when were chasing promotion.

    It will be a physically impossibility for these players to play every minute of every match for the rest of the season without them getting tired and losing form.

    We need at LEAST the same amount of players we had at the start of the season.

  111. well shandy boy at least you’ve got a better come back than that useless spew79 – i’ll give you that.

  112. It’s a fair opinion Stu, but maybe we’re just trying to get the best prices and not get taken for mugs with players and agents. If when the window closes we have Simpson tied up and 1 more player I won’t be devastated.

  113. Batty,

    I’ve give him this window. Only my personal feelings and it won’t make a jot of difference, but he will lose my support.

  114. batty – why dont you blog off & cause some trouble on ed’s , there’s people trying to have a civil conversation on here.

  115. Personally, I’d imagine Roy making love to his man wife to be about the most awkward experience possible. You wouldn’t know who’s coming or going, what the rules are, where the no go zones are etc etc.

  116. The only thing ill say about this window is there is no point in buying players who arent good enough for the premiership.

    I dont think we have loads of money to spend but I dont think we should waste it for the sake of it and I think there is money for loans if we get the right players

  117. shanyboy – keep hanging around in spew’s company & you’ll learn all the rules, he knows all the buttons that need pushing.

  118. Johno I think Mike should spend some money or get the fk out of Newcastle United Football Club.
    This pipe dream that he will buy a load of top prem quality players once we get promoted is never going to happen.

  119. try telling that to the likes of shandyboy , toonsy , spew79 & the likes – they just post crap that fatman will take to the bank every time – dont spend mike ,keep hold of the money mike , just a couple of other teams cast off’s will do fine mike & when we get back to the promised land you can treat us to a new team of premiership stars – hahaha their kidding themselves it’s frightening.
