Once again Mike Ashley sticks his puppet, Derek Llambias, in front of the camera to do his talking for him. Derek Llambias: "Mike knows where we want to be and where we should be in four or five years' time. "Our vision for the club is to finish 10th or above every year, year after year. "That is our target - we want to be challenging for Europe every season. "Mike Ashley's money has kept this club buoyant. "Quite honestly, Newcastle United would not be here without him, it is as simple as that. "He has never taken a penny out of the football club, but he knows what he has to put in every year and he is keen to grow it." .
