Ashley Bans 'Mr Newcastle' From St James' Park!

Oliver has written more about Newcastle United over the years than most journalists have read.

Most people openly wonder if Joe Kinnear is well enough to return to one of the most pressured jobs in English football, not that he was doing a good job to start with!

We have won only THREE games out of 16 at St James' Park since Joe Kinnear and Chris Hughton took over.

One website says today: "Oliver should count his blessings that he can no longer enter St James' Park whilst Ashley and Wise try to destroy Newcastle from the inside out.

"Ashley is beginning to resemble a man on the edge of sense, stuck with a club he can't sell, with fans that hate his guts, a team that can't or won't perform and he awards a man with a heart problem and who has won 5 matches in 29 games a new contract.

"If I didn't know better, I'd suspect Ashley was a Sunderland fan, working undercover to destroy the Magpies.

"Oliver has seen 15 different full time managers and numerous caretakers in the period that he's spent following the Toon and wears his love for Newcastle United on his sleeve.
"I'm really beginning to worry about Newcastle's future as an ongoing concern. If they go down and Ashley can't sell, just how many fans are going to be prepared to follow them next season? Decisions like banning journalists for having the honesty to question things shows him to have thrown in the towel at Newcastle."
