I don't think anyone can deny that Ashley showed entrepreneurial skill in creating Sports Direct from nothing. He latched onto a growing market and by buying tired old brands for next to nothing and screwing down costs used them to sell cheap sports wear and undercut his rivals. But he's a one trick pony. He hasn't a clue how to run a football club or operate in the plc environment and he's certainly no retail genius, throwing shareholders' money away to feed his own ego of which DEB and HoF are yet more examples.. Give it up Mike. Go spend your time binge drinking and strutting around the casinos with your sycophantic followers...

SPD One to ignore he tried and failed to do the same at DEB. Please do your own research.

MA reduced the asking price for Newcastle by £100 million seems he needs the money and no guarantee of a sale. Sports stake in Debs still falling and House of Fraser website down and probably losing money. All this will affect SPD earnings the share price could fall significantly from here.

Yeah that's just what Sports Direct shareholders need, Ashley to operate in a less regulated environment. I'm not sure what Ashley is doing messing around with HoF and Debenhams. He'd be better sticking to what he knows. Pile 'em high and sell 'em cheap. A strategy which he's tried at NUFC without success. Plenty of reasons to believe he'd have the same difficulties with HoF and Debenhams...

Sports Direct to move to AIM? This could make a lot of sense, as we highlight here in our latest Blog.

MA has had grief from NUFC fans for years, Why doesnt he sell??? Because he's making too much money for SD, all hidden in the books, if he wasnt making money from it, he would have sold years ago. Free advertising for 11 years, closed all of the club shops and the 1 remaining, so called club shop, is a SD shop in all but name, with very little money actually going to NUFC from sales. MA needs NUFC for SD and has no intention of selling.

Thanks - well he could have been a bit more specific than just saying "shareholders have stabbed me in the back" .. shareholders do not vote against reappointing Directors without a reason..

He's talking about the institutional investors who voted at the AGM to kick out the Chairman whom he supported!

But he is blaming the shareholders? They have not contributed in full to a falling share price. Shorters have to bear some of the blame.Why only blame one party? He should be up in arms that shorters are benefitting from the bad press etc. Most shareholders want to see capital growth - he is shooting the wrong messenger imho

Blaming shorters for damaging a share price is crazy - they are just taking a view as to the future direction of the stock. Because that view might not be yours and the majority of buyers are not willing to back their views with money the share price drops. If the management were doing a good job, nobody would be taking short positions and the stock would rise.

Why did he not also blame the shorters for dragging the share price down? They take advantage of bad press and uncertainty aka Debenhams

Still think he would have been better sticking to what he knows best , SPD Does he really need the hassle of acquisitions at his time of life ? I would be inclined to be enjoying my wealth whilst my health is good.

Is MA spot on about saying shareholders have stabbed him in the back? One of the most ott stupid comments I have ever heard. For a start, a small PI with 200 shares will not be involved..just a few larger holders..such a generalisation

Strange comment from my wife Talking about MA and House of Fraser She said she would never shop there "Can't stand the man" said she "but you have never met him ", I replied. Think that unfortunately MA rather has that effect.

MA is spot on asserting what he did, trial by the media whom have an agenda to damage a great British company. The media is responsible for losses of thousands of jobs to sell their papers/magazines. By not supporting SD they are helping the likes of Amazon whom are no different when it comes to employment in its warehouses. Do these stupid people really want to see MA fail in making HoF the go to store and save lots of jobs?

Yeah, Ole Mike is feeling the pressure a bit... I can assure him, it is only going to get worse from certain sections, and it wont 'blow over by September'

Looks like Mike is not enjoying the scrutiny that comes with Sports Direct being a plc.

tony, Well if posters read the statement its clear he has something to hide, the profit growth excludes House Of Fraser acquisition and with it probably losing money SPD will have to take a charge which will hit profits going forward.
