Newcastle 0-2 Leicester: The crowd turn on Ashley in another dismal display at SJP

On a day where Ashley made his first appearance at St James’ Park in sixteen months, perhaps the only positive we can take is that he saw first hand what a mess he’s created.

Whether he takes action is a different matter, but today confirmed what we probably all knew; it’s going to be another long, hard season.

Our severe lack of quality or ideas in attack was there for all to see once again, with Leicester barely having to get out of second gear to come away with a comfortable three points.

We had just one shot on goal and, quite incredibly, that one effort was Jonjo Shelvey’s from his own half. That perhaps sums up how much we’re struggling to create chances at the moment.



The vast majority of St James’ Park got involved when ‘stand up if you hate Ashley’ belted out from the Gallowgate. It was another clear message to the NUFC owner – on a day where Peter Kenyon has been linked with a takeover bid – however the problems ON the pitch should be our biggest concern right now.

After Man Utd away next weekend we have a run of VERY generous fixtures, but with confidence looking low and goals lacking, it’s hard to see where the wins will come from right now.

Today was another tough watch, with me struggling to come away with a single positive, but we must stay behind Benitez and the boys in the hope that things will take a turn for the better soon.

  1. What has our club become. It was bad enough with a pirate in charge (Lord Westwood).

    Now, Pards, Ugly John and Carr get 8 year contracts that Fatty disn’t want to break.

    Keegan sues, gets 2 million.

    Wise sues Jimenez and gets 500k.

    Ashley sues Jimenez for 3 million.

    Liambas has a bet with Ashley with the consequence he has to run around SJP naked. I wouldn’t even want him running around his own bathroom naked!

    Ashley lets the accountant and comedian’s dad run the club and they hire Schteve.

    A comedy of errors doesn’t even get close to describing it.
