Mike Ashley’s neglect of Newcastle found a new low this week, as epicures released from the IfRafaGoesWeGo campaign show just what a state St.James’ Park and it’s facilities have been left in, never mind the lack of signings on the pitch.
Investment in our infrastructure under Mike Ashley has been next to zero, despite a long tenure of now over 11 years.
Rafa’s request to have the training ground was rejected and we can see now with these pictures below, if our owner won’t invest money to correct such basic maintenance like these:
With us all wondering where the money is there’s agreement that it isn’t being spent on SJP.
The club has advised us that anyone with concerns about cleanliness or maintenance issues should report them to a steward.

These are new and recent images and shows the ground to be unclean, run down and completely neglected – with one of them showing a dead pigeon which is believed to have been left for several weeks now.
This comes after big tickets and merchandise price rises; the lack of regard for the fan base from Mike Ashley really does know no bounds.
Lee Marshall who is often the voice of the club on twitter has responded by saying fans are to report issues like these and they may be resolved but quite why it needs us to point such neglect out remains to be seen.
As people working for the club, you would hope they can see and fix it for themselves.
