Protest group release new video & statement as Mike Ashley sells SJP’s potential for £9m

The Magpie Group statement:

The Magpie Group protested outside the respective houses of Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley on the same day.

TMG protested their dissatisfaction over the sale of the Strawberry Place land/lease.

Mike Ashley pocketed a cool £9 million for himself as he further stripped the club of its assets.

The land on Strawberry place was set aside for the development of the stadium and could have been used to increase revenue for the club.

Over the years we have seen Ashley sell players, he’s moved the merchandise over to Sports Direct and now the land that was once owned by the club.

The supporters helped pay for that land and we knew that one day it would be needed. Selling this land puts the Club back decades.

Not only will this move reduce the chance of any future expansion of the Stadium but the development will change the City skyline forever.

The empty seats inside St James Park suggest that we are not the only ones deeply unhappy with his ownership of the Club but we feel that more need to cancel their season tickets. Having an empty Stadium does make a difference!

Why else would Ashley insist on trying to fill the empty seats with cut price deals to universities and other local institutions/businesses.

It’s much more than a financial matter, it’s damaging his brand and also damaging to the Premier League, as well as Sky Sports, BT Sport and now Amazon Prime, who all pay Ashley handsomely.

We need you to get involved so please email us with your interest to Contact@magpiegroup.org

Thank you.

  1. I can’t think of another pl owner who has so brazenly done anything like this and none of the media have covered this. He no more than the man on the moon has the interest of nufc at heart, he would dig up his dead mother and sell the dress on her back if someone would buy it, and then lose the money in a casino that night. Nufc fans must have done something very special in another life to deserve a savour like Mike Ashley.

  2. Joke groups and organisation, pleased they don’t go to the match

    Here’s a one why don’t the missing 8000 from this year and the 10000s from previous years turn up to protest outside the ground on a match day, hardly an inconvenience that way such a sizeable demonstration would make a real statement and would be publicised everywhere

    Yep thought not

  3. I find these “protest” groups pretty sad. Their arguments are never properly thought out and like the People’s Popular Front of Judaea they’re just one of a few individuals who can’t get agree with each other long enough to actually make an impact.

    “Not only will this move reduce the chance of any future expansion of the Stadium but the development will change the City skyline forever.”

    When did the City Skyline become untouchable? Using that theory nothing would have ever been built higher than 3 feet tall.

    As for expansion of the stadium, there has to come a time when fans (even the ones who hate Ashley) accept that further expansion of the stadium is impractical and the only way to get above 65,000 is a new stadium and it has to be outside the City.

    You have to face facts.
