Mike Ashley is one man and we are many

6 years ago

The time for talking is over, Mike Ashley is one man and we are many.

We need action, anything is better than sitting on our backsides arguing over what to do about Mike Ashley.

I am tired of listening to people argue over what action should be taken; staying away from matches, not buying club merchandise, singing songs.

What’s right, what’s wrong, what ‘true’ supporters do…

We need to do something to get the ball rolling, no matter how small. I don’t need to remind people of what has went on in the past few years but the fact that Championship managers are dismissing the chance to take the reins of one of the biggest clubs in the country, is nothing less than an embarrassment (and god knows it’s not the first).

I’ve tried apathy but every time a match kicks off I’m cheering on the lads, full of optimism and sheer stupid blind hope. After the final whistle I ask myself what’s the point supporting a team with no ambition!

Our players have been rewarded for their FA cup exit with a holiday in the sun. Like a battered wife we go back, thinking things will change.

Why should I give up though? Should we stay away and let him win? Ashley won’t care, gate receipts are petty cash. I won’t give up even if I could, this is my club!

I am willing to do just about anything to rid Newcastle United of this parasite. All I am asking for is someone with the respect of the fans to stand up and take the lead. We should be ashamed of ourselves for letting it go this far. Changing the manager is like changing the deckchairs on the Titanic. It doesn’t matter who it is, I’d take a terrible one and get relegated if it meant us being sold.

My opinion after the final whistle – stay in your seat and don’t leave. I’m open to anything though, it’s better than banging our heads against a wall. Mike Ashley is one man, we are many.
