Late on Sunday night the Ashley Out campaign organisers released the statement below.
Following the boycott of the Spurs match, the fans were keen to counter the propaganda from Mike Ashley and Newcastle United.
Today the supporters of Newcastle United came together to send a message to Mike Ashley; sell up and leave.
The #BoycottSpurs protest was a success but do not forget that this is just the start of what will be a long and sustained campaign to reclaim our club.
Today Newcastle United announced the official attendance as 47,427 – Northumbria Police have also confirmed that this was the official figure provided to them by the club. In reality, we all know that this figure is grossly over exaggerated. There is simply no way that 47,427 supporters were inside St. James’ Park earlier this afternoon.
Need we remind you that the board and directors of the current regime at Newcastle United are proven liars?
‘The Club admitted to the Tribunal that it repeatedly and intentionally misled the press, public and fans of Newcastle United.’
PHILIP HAVERS QC (CHAIRMAN)
LORD PANNICK QC, KENNETH MERRETT, 2 October 2009.
We are united, this is only the start. We will not rest until Mike Ashley is no longer the owner of Newcastle United.
We want our football club back.
