NUFC fans furious after Mike Ashley’s latest decision at St James’ Park – ‘This club is barking mad’

Following the release of the Fans Forum minutes yesterday, Newcastle fans have been left angered by the club’s decision NOT to extend St James’ Park – with their justification for this appearing to make no sense whatsoever.

Considering our consistent 50,000 plus attendances in the Championship and week on week sell outs in the top flight this season, there have been calls to extend the Gallowgate – however this clearly fell on deaf ears last week.

The club indicated that extending the Gallowgate would “not make sense commercially” and that it was said their view was “likely to remain unchanged in the short and medium term and potentially the long term.”:

Here’s their ‘justification’ for saying no and refusing to alter their stance – something which has left NUFC fans frustrated and pretty perplexed:

“The club reiterated its stance that outlaying what could potentially be tens of millions of pounds to expand would be unwise financially. The club stated that there is demand for tickets for ‘bigger’ games but that this is not always the case for other matches, when demand tails off. The club highlighted Saturday’s match against West Bromwich Albion, which had originally sold out. The visitors returned a block of seats on Level 7 in advance, however those tickets were being sold in very small quantities each day, indicating that demand was not especially high.”

Some incredible ‘reasoning’ here.

Here’s what NUFC fans have had to say in response to these barmy claims from the club:

A pathetic response from the club. Ashley refusing to spend again? Well there’s a surprise.

We’ll never reach anywhere near our potential under his cancerous tenure.
