Mike Ashley quotes

Jul 06 2017

He would never have been able to keep up. He's a lightweight when it comes to drinking.feedback

Jul 06 2017

My thing is not to drink regularly. It is binge-drinking. I am trying to get drunk.feedback

Jul 06 2017

He knows that's lies. Jeff Blue knows that's utter bullshit.feedback

Jul 06 2017

He got the drinks in before the round was finished … they were coming like machine guns.feedback

Jul 06 2017

We would have had the first pint in between five and 10 minutes. The second pint would probably be between 10 and, longest case, 15 minutes. The third pint is what 30 minute-ish – you're slowing down by then.feedback

Jul 05 2017

We got on well, so much so, that we ended up going out after the pub to a bar in the West End where we stayed until the early morning. I had drunk so much that I can't remember which bar we went to.feedback

Mr Blue is an experienced businessman and lawyer and it is ridiculous for him to suggest otherwise. I can't believe that he is now trying to take me for £14million off the back of some drunk banter that he is seeking to engineer into something more.feedback

Jul 05 2017

When we got to the pub we started drinking heavily at the bar and consumed a lot of alcohol during the evening. We must have had four or five rounds of drinks in the first hour. I can't remember the details of the conversations that we had in the pub as it was a heavy night of drinking. I do recall that there was a lot of banter and bravado, which was a mixture of the drinking and me trying to build a rapport with brokers.feedback

Jul 05 2017

Mr Blue's game plan was for us to have a drinking session and he made it clear that my role was to make it a fun night and sell myself and [Sports Direct] as a potential client. I find it incredible that Mr Blue is actually suggesting that I made a binding agreement for £15m. It's nonsense. If I did say to Mr Blue that I would pay him £15m if he could increase [Sports Direct's] share price to £8, it would be obvious to everyone, including Mr Blue, that I wasn't being serious.feedback

Jul 05 2017

He didn't take me seriously because it was obviously just banter. I think that this shows how ludicrous it is that Mr Blue by contrast claims that we had a serious conversation that evening about a bonus for him.feedback

It won't surprise you to know I am going to renegotiate our deal.feedback

Plans for next season were discussed, including the purchase and loan of players to add to the squad in readiness for the Premier League season.

I'd like to be the first to congratulate Alex, who will help us to continue to make a positive difference by ensuring that your voice is heard in the boardroom. I have said many times that this is a company that was built by the great people who work here. I am therefore delighted that the people at Sports Direct have voted to choose the company's first UK elected workers' representative.feedback

Jan 05 2017

Keith has my full backing and will be continuing in his role on the basis that he has the unanimous support of the board. I note that many of those who voted against Keith have acknowledged that we have made positive progress since the AGM.feedback

Our people have once again found themselves in the spotlight through no fault of their own, yet they remain hardworking and loyal.feedback
