A new campaign has emerged on social media in an attempt to protests against Mike Ashley – with fans now planning to throw tennis balls onto the pitch during December’s clash with Wolves at St James’ Park.
Several fans have insisted that Ashley will only take protests seriously if a full boycott occurs, however it’s also accepted that an empty (ish) St James’ Park would not do the players any good – especially when they’re in dire need of a win and confidence boost.
This campaign – called ‘Say BALLS to Mike Ashley‘ – has now emerged on Twitter, asking each NUFC fan to bring a tennis ball to St James’ Park when we face Wolves on December 9th – with fans asked to all throw them onto the pitch in protest on the 15th minute.

The campaign has only just begun, however several NUFC fan account have already started to get behind them on social media, sharing their plan for December’s protest.
As seen below, this type of protest was seen at Hull this time last year.

Would you get involved in this, or are you not a fan?
It’s hard to know what to do when the pressure MUST be increased on Ashley while the team NEEDS our support..
