bbcs take on ashleys accounts....



Profits at Mike Ashley's private company dropped in 2017 when Sports Direct was hit by the fall in the value of the pound and Newcastle United's revenue slumped.
Mash Holdings' accounts for the financial year to end-April 2017, show profits fell to £102.5m from £227.7m.
They show the Sports Direct founder is still seeking a buyer for Newcastle United, which he has owned since 2007.
The cost of using the company jet and helicopter is put at £700,000.
Matchday hospitality for his family is valued at £78,000, down from £101,000 the previous year.
Turnover at Newcastle United fell to £91.8m from £131.1m while operating expenses increased by £44.3.m to £140.8m.

Loans to the club from Mr Ashley were £144m and the accounts state that "in October 2017, owner Mike Ashley decided to put the club up for sale".
"The club will have challenges to face as it looks forward to the 2018/19 season back in the Premier League," the accounts add.



Some land next to the club has been sold for £9m.



Sports Direct, which is listed on the stock market, has already published results for the period covered in Mash Holding's accounts, which described the "currency headwinds" and "strategic challenges" in continental Europe as impacting performance.
The leisure retailer has traded "in line with management expectations" since the end of April 2017.
For the 12 months covered by the Mash Holdings accounts, revenue rose by 11.7% to £3.2bn but margins were hit by the fall in the pound following the EU referendum and an increase in provisions for stock no longer in fashion in a "fast changing market and supply chain".
Mash Holdings also said Sports Direct can get access to loans of up to £907.5m which could go up to £1bn.

The business has also taken over House of Fraser for £90m and bought Evans Cycles for £8m.
Mr Ashley has also failed to take over music retailer HMV and pulled out of the bidding for Patisserie Valerie.
"The Group continues to seek out profitable investments and development projects," the accounts, which list more than 400 subsidiaries, said.
They also discuss family connections. In 2017 Sports Direct shareholders rejected a proposed £11m payment to the Mr Ashley's brother, John, and these accounts say that the contract with his business Barlin is "no longer in place".
But a business controlled by Michael Murray, the fiance of one of Mr Ashley's daughters, continues to provide "property consultancy services" to Sports Direct.
The accounts also show that the company has looked at the role of Justin Barnes, a director of ISBL Consultancy which has a "commercial relationship" with Sports Direct. This was deemed to be an "advisory capacity" role and not one involving any management function, the accounts state.

The land at Strawberry Place, sold for £9m is only a small part of the story. The total project will provide around 115,000 sq ft of Office Space and 162 apartments with a total value of £122m.

You cant tell me the BFCB is not also getting a slice of the ongoing action.

Of course this is the land that was earmarked for the club to build a super casino and luxury hotel that would have provided the cub with an income for ever and ever.

The Northumberland Senior Cup Semi-Final draw has paired holders Newcastle U23s with EvoStik Eastern Division leaders Morpeth Town:

Morpeth Town v Newcastle U23s
West Allotment Celtic v North Shields

Ties are to be played on or before Saturday March 2nd, with the Magpies visiting Craik Park.

Our game is a re-run of last season's Final, when the Magpies ran out 3-1 winners at SJP. The two sides also met the season before that, Newcastle triumphing by the odd goal in five at Morpeth.

'Amanda Staveley is still "interested" in Newcastle United – a year after Mike Ashley broke off talks over a sale. Ashley, the club's owner, walked away from discussions with the Dubai-based financier, publicly labelling them a waste of time.

Staveley has spoken to The National about the ambitions of PCP Capital Partners, her investment firm, which is looking at a "lot of clubs", including relegation-threatened United. “We're big fans of Newcastle, big fans of the team,” said Staveley. "We have no issue with Mr Ashley – that (the "waste of time claim") is water under the bridge.

“I’m a total tomboy – I’m a football fan,” said Staveley. "I enjoy it very much. “We're sensible people who invest other people’s money. We would also put our own capital in – of course we would – but with financial fair play rules, all football clubs have to be financially stable. “I'm hugely proud of Man City. We're not looking at creating another Man City in terms of the huge levels of investment they’ve had on players. "But what I love about Man City is how they have invested so well in Manchester, in the area. That’s really important, and the sort of thing we would want to do elsewhere.”

"This is an investment, but it has to be a long-term investment," said Staveley. "Newcastle would be run as a business, but we want it to be a successful, thriving business that's an absolutely integral part of the city.'
