You won’t believe how NUFC responded to Saturday’s protest – This stinks of Mike Ashley..

As I’m sure you’ll agree, the less said about Saturdays defeat against West Ham the better. There was much talk about the 11 minute protest walk-in by fans and questions as to just how many would take part.

Well, it seems that the protest talk reached the Newcastle hierarchy upstairs too. The club turned off TV screens on the concourse during the first 11 minutes of the match, meaning that no one could watch the game when waiting to come in late.



This was a clear dig at the fans who took part in the protest, and something that stinks of Mike Ashley (or his cronies). It’s all rather petty and pathetic. The protest may have been small – with less than 1,000 fans believed to have taken part – but Ashley was bothered enough to get the tellies switched off in the concourse.

As for the 11 minute walk in itself, I respect that everyone has the right to show how they feel. But I’m not too sure how much good it did for the team, and it made for a very strange atmosphere and obviously a very poor performance.

I think the best way to effect Mike Ashley is to hit his pocket, but turning up to a game, albeit late, is still getting numbers through the gate and he is still benefitting from ticket sales.

Protest before and after the game for sure , but we need to get behind the team for 90 minutes and become  a 12th man.

  2. All hw understands is money.it is his god.
    The ONLY way to hit him hard would be t cancel all season ticket payments.
    There is no point in protesting when he already has your money. Its a fools game.
    Everybody knows what to do but nobody will do it. Those that wont do it deserve Mike Ashley and all the siht he dishes out.
