Survey comments - Q7: Given the credit crunch, would it be acceptable for Mike Ashley to stay at the club?

He has shown monumental lack of judgement regarding the importance of fan opinion in running any football club, lack of understanding that resignations and appointments can influence the form of players and generally appearing that in his new 'hobby' he is completely out of his depth

He should take a cut price for all the mess he's caused!

no investment ambition, sees the club as a money making venture

MA/KK should kiss and make up. rest of the so called london Mafia should GO NOW

No way, we stand to lose 14 players in the summer for nothing, the club will need obscene investment in January & the summer to cope with relegation fights and losing so many players. Ashley will never do that as he has made a profit every window since arriving.

we still need rid of a chairman who doesn't care about the club

he's been a disaster over three transfer windows,can't wait to see the back of him.

only if he gets rid of the director of football

yes, but only if he got rid of 1WISE man & allowed next man to manage,unless he said otherwise,but wise would still have to go, past point of no return for him.

Mike Ashley WILL never be accepted at the club under any circumstances although we have to accept we are stuck with him for the forseeable future.

If he spends a little in January OUTSIDE OF MONEY COMING IN FROM SELLING PLAYERS.

I would love for him to say he had made a massive mistake and was staying on to finish what he started, however I think he may well have been looking to asset strip from day 1.

Mike has cleared the debt off, and made mistakes I am a massive Kevin Keegan fan.  However, longterm I think his strategy is correct, Freddie Sheperd and Hall Jnr changes things forever when they lacked investment around the time of the Metz fiasco, from that point onwards the gap has grew with regard to the top four and now is unbridgeable which is why Mike Ashely strategy is in fact a good one for NUFC

The credit crunch has nothing to do woth it, the keeganites have hounded the chairman, yes he has made mistakes but a running a football club is not the same as a business... Ashley should admit mistakes have been made and continue
