Shocking Mike Ashley revelation emerges – This shows how much damage he’s done to NUFC

Following Bournemouth’s 2-1 victory over Palace on Monday night, a Newcastle fan hit the nail on the head – posting a tweet that perfectly sums up Mike Ashley’s miserable spell at St James’ Park.

As the below tweet highlights, Bournemouth were just outside the relegation places in League Two when Mike Ashley took over Newcastle United in the summer of 2007 and, just over 10 years later, we now can’t compete with them in the Premier League.

People often ask just why we hate Ashley as an owner, and this helps explain just why.

It’s nothing against Bournemouth; a club who play brilliant football, run their club in the correct way, back their manager and spend big, however this shows just how dormant we’ve become as a club under Ashley.

Since Ashley arrived, we’ve not spent over £14m on a single player, yet we’ve sold Carroll, Cabaye, Sissoko, Wijnaldum and Mitrovic for a combined £130m.

Bournemouth on the other hand have broken our 12-year old transfer record THREE times in the last three years, signing Jordan Ibe, Nathan Ake and Jefferson Lerma for just shy of £55m combined.

We finished above them in the league last season, yes, but rest assured there’d only be one winner if both ourselves and Bournemouth were quoted £20m for a new striker in January.
