Mike Ashley said : "Although I am a wealthy individual, I’m not in the same financial league as a consortium that has sovereign wealth fund backing. “It’s hard to compete at the highest level in football with certain clubs that have almost unlimited resources. “I’ve known for some time now that many Newcastle fans were frustrated by the situation and were in favour of a change. “I therefore felt that I owed it to the fans to fight tooth and nail over the last 18 months or so to make this happen”. What are the experts saying? Simon Jordan believes Ashley’s prudent approach to football club ownership could be “celebrated” by Derby fans amid their ongoing financial crisis. Asked by talkSPORT host Jim White if Ashley would be “mad” to jump straight back into football with the Rams, former Crystal Palace owner Jordan said: “His crime at Newcastle was making it sustainable. “His crime was to do something that the West Ham owners have done, which is get the team relegated, but to run the football club on a moderately sound financial footing. “That is a crime in football speak and I know Newcastle fans will be aghast hearing that. “That sort of approach might be celebrated in Derby now because they will say ‘Mel Morris ran it a different way’. “He spent £200million quid of his own money, on top of whatever he may have purchased the club for, and got a situation where the club is in administration" External link
