hey eds is there any news on a company sponsoring st james park for next year or has no one came forward and it will continue to SDA?? and yes i know it will always be St James park Im just curious thats all. {Ed007's Note - Sorry I haven't heard of anything. Maybe Branson could be interested in a deal of some sort, but that is just me having a guess.}

There is rumours floating around that nike are interested in speaking to mike ashley, primarily to get more of their clothes into sports direct and to sponsor his chain, but mike ashley is trying to get them sponsor the stadium by giving them a better deal in the chain if they agree to sponsoring the stadium would be called the nike arena

Agree1 Disagree4

Have we not signed Puma for 2 years tho? Atleast on the kit.
Stadium would be different, but having it called "Nike Arena" is better than SDA atleast. Nike is a great brand.

Agree1 Disagree3

Woud puma not effect the deal? eds? {Ed007's Note - A kit deal would be different from a stadium naming one. Look even at Man Utd kit and training kit, two separate companies The only problem would be that they are both sports companies and rivals, would either be happy with one deal and a rival as the other?}

Agree2 Disagree2

Doesnt ashley own shares in puma though? if this is the case surely that wouldnt be any cause for concern

Agree0 Disagree2

Doesn't make a difference whether Ashley owns shares in Puma or not, unless he is the controlling shareholder, and he is not. Like the Ed says, no competing sportswear sponsorship would be allowed under the contract that is in place with Puma, and if it was the marketing & sponsorships manager at Puma should be sacked. Seen as this isn't the first sponsorship agreement they have ever done I'm sure that is not the case. Nike wil not be a stadium sponsor once the Puma deal is in place. 100%.

To be going in to the final game of the season with the chance of finishing 3rd, however unlikely it is, is simply amazing! Everyone at NUFC needs to give themselves a pat on the back for the way they have handled everything this season, from Joey Barton's tantrums and Jose Enrique wanting out, we have brought in better players who WANT to play for the shirt. Mike Ashley is running a football club the way it should be and the prospects are looking good for the foreseeable future :) Graham Carr will find some more gems this summer and everyone will find out the TOON are here to stay!

Believable21 Unbelievable1

Lets hope were saying this after the summer. We may well bring in some good players, but the most important thing it to keep hold of our current team

Don't no if it's true, but been told Adam johnson is 1 of are main targets if we can get him for right price and wages!!

Believable13 Unbelievable3

Wouldnt be a bad buy, hes a quality left sided player, i know we have ba there atm, and he is a hard worker, but in that position i find him to be a little lack luster

Agree2 Disagree1

Adam Johnson is a life long Newcastle fan aswell... could be a possiblity

Agree6 Disagree4

He was only a supporters when he was a kid plus he was born in dirty mackem land dont want him his wages are like 80,000 a week

Agree3 Disagree6

Some of my mates are City fans and they all say that he's an absolute liability and only looks good on MOTD.

Agree1 Disagree5

He doesn't work back enough, which could be a risk. He is a good player going forward though

Agree0 Disagree2

HBA did not do the needful until he bought into the Toon way of playing... simple play well, track back, get a regular start....


Agree5 Disagree0

Born in easington village same place as stevie harper...

Agree4 Disagree0

Up road from airport

Agree1 Disagree0

No johnson is a mackem shut up he going to safc

Agree1 Disagree5

Agree2 Disagree0
