The girlfriend of Adam Campbell has revealed that the striker found out he was officially being dumped through a message on Twitter.

Rosie Moorhouse says that her boyfriend had not been told officially he wasn’t getting his contract renewed, instead finding out when the club published a statement on Friday night which appeared on Twitter as well as teh club website.

Rosie used the same medium to put up the following message:

“Adam has never been told this officially, nice to find out through Twitter. #disrespect”

The 20 year old striker may have known the writing was on the wall but it is incomprehensible why a football club would act with such a lack of class and common decency.

It all sounds exactly like the way Mike Ashley treats 90% of his Sports Direct staff.

You sometimes see people claiming that while Ashley may be a despicable owner of NUFC, there are still allegedly a lot of good people working at the club.

I don’t buy that.

I obviously don’t mean those doing normal jobs such as working in the ticket office or club shop, rather those who are in any position of authority.

Why didn’t Lee Charnley or one of the other Mike Ashley minions pick up the phone and say ‘Thanks Adam but time to move on etc etc’’?

I think the Ashley poison has spread right through the club and pretty much all of the decent people have either been sacked or jumped ship.

Sadly, not many are brave enough, or able, to do what Jonas Gutierrez has done and slaughtered Mike Ashley for the way he behaves.

Ironic that the club wants to keep on putting this message out that they want to build the future on local lads, giving them a chance and Newcastle United being the very best club they could go to.

Then they treat a Geordie and Newcastle fan through and through like this, 20 year old Adam Campbell is from North Shields and has the proverbial black and white blood flowing through his body.

Which Tyneside parents who are considering advising the stars of the future which club to choose, can hand on heart say Newcastle United is the right one for them, when they treat local lads like this?

On the last day of the season Adam Campbell wasn’t involved in the matchday 18 against West Ham but at the final whistle showed just how much of a black and whiter he is:

“GET THE F*** IN couldn’t be more worthy of a goalscorer @elgalgojonas”

Honestly, our club is rotten to the core, the need has never been greater to cleanse the club from top to bottom…which has to start at the very top.
