Alan Shearer has shut down Simon Jordan brilliantly on social media after the ex-Palace owner made some unbelievable comments on Sky Sports, claiming Mike Ashley was ‘never going to be accepted’ by Newcastle fans because he was is a ‘southerner’!
Absolute nonsense from Jordan – who appeared as a guest on Sky Sports’ ‘The Debate’ – and a comment that not only sparked a furious reaction from Alan Shearer but so many other Newcastle fans online.
Here’s Simon’s baffling comments on Sky Sports last week:

“Ashley has gone in there and he was never going to be accepted because he was a southerner!”
It appears Simon has forgotten popular southerner’s to play a big role at St James’ such as Les Ferdinand, Rob Lee, Chris Hughton, Malcolm McDonald and even Matt Ritchie – a man born and raised in Portsmouth, yet arguably the most popular Newcastle United player at present!
Alan Shearer echo’d all of the above, shutting down the London-based businessman with this tweet:

There was some other spot on and pretty amusing responses too – including one from former NUFC southerner Rob Lee!:
He’s right like. I can’t stand that Benítez bloke because he’s not from Fenham. https://t.co/nk4xTLPOjq

A load of absolute codswallop from Simon Jordan – a first class twerp who probably only says these things for a reaction anyway.
Mike Ashley is disliked because of what he has done to our football club over the years, not because of where he was born.
