If it wasn’t bad enough that ‘Sports Direct‘ signs were in every nook and cranny of St James’ Park as it is, Mike Ashley has now found space for yet another one – in the main entrance to St James’ Park.
As we know, there’s not a seat inside the stadium which doesn’t look out onto a sea of Sports Direct signs and it seems Ashley wants more.
Here’s the latest one to be put up:

This is the entrance to St James’ Park for many. This is the home of Newcastle United football club – yet this is what we see.
One big question enters my mind when I see this – Is this really the actions of a man who genuinely wants to sell up?
Given the effort he puts in to continually advertise his own brand inside and outside the stadium, I get the feeling he’ll only sell to a buyer who’ll allow the SD advertising to remain – or allow him to maintain a connection to the club shop? I’d like to bet he wants strings attached.
Why would Mike Ashley put new Sports Direct signs up pop the main entrance at SJP if he selling?
Make your own mind up on that one? #nufc

Either way, the more he puts up Sports Direct signs (all whilst he fails to invest in the club itself), the more protests he will face – and rightly so.
We are now nothing but a money making machine that promotes his best interests and we must get him out.
