A frustrated Newcastle fan has admitted during a call on BBC 5 Live that he wants Rafa to resign and for the club to be relegated this season – feeling this would be the financial disaster Mike Ashley deserves.
Relegation would be devastating for the club and us fans, but it would hit Ashley hard. He’d lose his biggest asset in Rafa, season ticket sales would plummet, Premier League cash would be no more and the value of ‘his’ club would plummet.
Here’s what this NUFC fan had to say during his time on BBC Radio 5 Live, urging Rafa to resign and leave Ashley to suffer – with him even claiming he wants us to go down this year!
I can see what this fan means to a certain extent , but Newcastle United will be still here long after Mike Ashley, and under no circumstances would I want my club to be relegated – no matter how much I dislike Mike Ashley.
Go down a third time and I can’t see us coming back any time soon, with relegation this year meaning the end of Rafa and the final straw for so many fed up fans.
The general reaction to this fan’s comments is that of disagreement , but also SOME understanding of what he is saying – which says a lot about how dejected our supporters have become this season.
Personally, I just dread the thought of us being relegated again – even if the devastating effects that come with it could leave Ashley in a real mess.
