With all football postponed and no return date set as this global pandemic persists, Mike Ashley / Newcastle United have continued to take direct debits, charging fans for season ticket renewals and all payments on future season tickets.
As expected, no sympathy was shown towards loyal fans, however he now has nowhere to hide – even if he’s self-isolating over in the States and expected to sell the club in the coming days/weeks.
Why? Because Sky Sports have now confirmed that, following a meeting between Premier League chiefs on Friday, there’ll be no more home games across the 2019/20 season.
As Sky Sports’ chief reporter Bryan Swanson states above, any Premier League games that may commence over the final 9 games of the season will be played at neutral venues – with clubs told that ‘home’ games are deemed ‘unrealistic’ and ‘will not happen’.
Mike, you may be on the way out, but it’s time to stop all payments and return the money our club are continuing to take from loyal fans – especially during these unprecedented times that have caused so many to struggle financially.
This could turn out to be easy PR for potential new owners to get fans immediately onside, but this is a situation that must be dealt with urgently, with us hearing stories about several Newcastle fans in dire need of the cash NOW – not next week or next month.
Considering it’s now been all but confirmed that we won’t see another game at St James’ Park over the ‘2019/20’ campaign and haven’t a clue when next season will start, you really have no more excuses.
