Palace - A Warning Of What Ashley Could Have Done!

Last updated : 28 January 2010 By Footy Mad - Editor


There were strong rumours at. Christmas, when all the high profile bidders for the club turned out to be bullshitters, that Newcastle Utd were on the verge of going into administration.

I honest don't know how close we were, but with all the flack aimed at Ashley at that time, it was a strong possibility.

If Ashley had thrown out the dummy we could have found ourselves in the same shit hole that Palace are now in.

I cannot confirm Ashley thought about it ... because I don't know the man ... so we will never know.

But I'm sure EVERY Toon fan has a feeling of sympathy for Palace fans right now.

Eagles chairman Simon Jordan had been attempting to attract new investment into the club, who were late in paying their players twice this season.

But on Tuesday Brendon Guilfoyle, Chris White and John Russell of the P&A Partnership were appointed administrators.

Now Palace find themselves in a relegation battle after falling from ninth to 21st and just three points clear of the bottom three.

A league statement read: "Following receipt of formal confirmation that Crystal Palace Football Club has gone into administration, the Football League can confirm a sporting sanction of 10 points will apply with immediate effect."
