Well he has lost shedloads of money on HBOS so you'd think he would be willing to do a deal. He wants $1bn though

I think he is taking the piss TBH.

Mr Ashley said a lot of things to a lot of people that night (not me, but people I know) - doesn't mean any of them are true.

Some poor lad in Newcastle who looks like Ashley got kicked in at a restaurant and was heckled by the crowd at the last home match.

Not funny for him, but made me laugh.

Just read it on Sun Online, no mention of his restaurant.

He was a rather portly fellow, bit of resemblance in the face.
