Heard a rumour from a friend of a friend that Mike Ashley is interested in taking on the Cobblers. I am assuming this is spam, anyone else heard anything? Would we want such a character?

Money, Cheap shirts, Money, Ability to Purchase better players, Money, Able to Finish/start again the East Stand, Money, Increase overall capacity, Money, Potential realised, Money.  Grin
It's not as if he is a questionable Human Rights record, like who is replacing him at The Toon, is it?   Tongue
If he ploughs a substantial amount of money into the club, would there be many who wouldn't welcome him?  Roll Eyes

Absolutely no chance of this happening and even if there was, I wouldn't want to see the fat, morally bankrupt piece of sht anywhere near our club. I'd rather fold and start again as a phoenix club than see it becoming tainted by his stubby little maulers.

You don't mean your last sentence. Whatever you do, don't take up a career in journalism...saturation point in sensationalising!

Probably in a minority?
If someone comes waving that amount of spondoolies, as long as they can sustain it you grab it.
Maybe some of the supporters haven't agreed with the amount of money he has put in to fund them, but can't see where Newcastle have been tainted by him? 
You will never know when/if a meal ticket will ever be offered again.

Who in the queue of potential buyers would meet the standards you demand?

If Mike Ashley was in the queue, I believe it would be a queue of ONE!

To clarify, I've witnessed Mike Ashley's business dealings first hand. He's an amoral **** of the highest (or rather lowest) order. I'm not being sensationalist or resorting to hyperbole. I would genuinely prefer us to fold than to have him involved in our club. It's pretty much a moot point anyway because it isn't going to happen.

He's an old school businessman, interested in making money, not bothered about morals. Can't see how he'd be interested in us, unless he can make money off the land.....

Hes a D1ck of the highest order. Same as Tim Martin from Wetherspoons, who refused to pay his staff or settle invoices. And Branson, who is currently sulking after losing the West Coast mainline route. And not getting his airline bailed out by the government. But why should they? He is based offshore and pays hardly any tax. Speaking of him, reminds me, did anyone else have big problems with Virginmedia last week? Mine kept crashing every few minutes. They can stick their next price increase.
And anyway, Ashleys not coming here. Its just not big enough for him, or his ego. Move on nothing to see.

Sounds like many chairman to me, at least weve been lucky enough to avoid anyone that fits that description?

Unbelievable Jeff!

After witnessing our own chairman and his pals walk out the door with 12m of public money some interesting points of view. Remember KT's not selling the club, it's land near the M1.

Obviously some fun bullshit, although we do have a Newcastle connection! Give me a ruthless billionaire any day over the absolute shite we've witnessed here. McRithchie or Mike Ashley? FFS.

There would only be a tiny insignificant few stamping their feet outside in protest. More room as well as on the hill as Beds could come inside again and admire the new stand.

Look it up ! 
You carefully omitted the fact he later apologised for his actions and offered a fleet of store lorries to help with distribution of PPE.

That's only because of the outcry it caused, it doesn't change the fact of what his first reaction was!
