A Mike Ashley Out campaign has been launched today by those who were behind the ‘Sack Pardew’ initiative.

We were contacted yesterday by those involved but were asked to wait for their official launch today before letting you know about the development.

Below is the launch text on the AshleyOut.com website:

It’s been nearly eight years since Mike Ashley became the owner of Newcastle United with much fanfare and promise.

Since then our club has been the subject of an organised tumble into mediocrity for the benefit of one person, and one person only, Michael James Wallace Ashley.

There have been embarrassing appointments at director and managerial level, our club and ground have been associated with tacky brands, club legends have been humiliated, club debt has risen, matchday and commercial revenue have dropped significantly and, most importantly, our league and cup records have deteriorated.

Today the club is an empty shell, a shadow of its grand former self. There is no ambition beyond staying in the Premier League to pick up “our” share of the enormous TV revenues the league generates.

In the early parts of his reign Mike Ashley very publicly “put the club up for sale”, but in the end he got away with public posturing and asking for patience whilst the “takeover process” ran its course. The reality is he was never actually inclined to sell up.

We urge Mike Ashley to put Newcastle United up for sale as soon as possible, in earnest this time, and in an open and transparent manner. We will not lie down until the objective to see him removed as owner of our beloved club has been achieved.

We call upon all Newcastle United fans to support our campaign aimed at ending Mike Ashley’s tenure. We are all being lied to and deceived in a cold and calculated fashion by Ashley and his people. Their aim of keeping our fanbase pacified and sitting in their seats for the TV cameras cannot be allowed to succeed. This website documents Mike Ashley’s many ploys, lies and failures, and alongside our social media presence, will be the background of organised protests at Newcastle United games and away from them.

  • PeterRobson

    I applaud the idea, but judging by your last efforts it´s doomed to failure !!!

    The last campaign failed to get much attention and quickly fizzled due to lack of concerted effort, in fact half the detractors of the campaign were from within our own ranks of supporters !!!

    It´s like whistling in the dark to hide your fear !!

    Honestly, there are organisations out there you could learn from on how to be effective instead of starting another campaign which will only further make us an even bigger laughing stock in the eyes of other fans !!!

    I´d love to see change within the club, but in a way that unites the club and the fans as that is the only way forward !!!

  • Stephen Keys

    Bet he’s quaking in his boots!

  • Paul Patterson

    Bloody finally!!!!

  • newcastle7

    You tried to get Pardew out and failed.When Pardew did go things have got worse and he had transformed a relegation threatened club into a team with European form.Ashley is worth four billion so a collection at Bar Loco is hardly likely to shift him.Through in the fact that the club has been up for sale for five years and no one wants to buy us and all you will have to show for your efforts is yet more bad press.

  • Toonarden

    What’s the alternative – just sitting on our a***s blithely accepting any old s**t Ashley doles out to us? It’s pathetic ‘roll over and die’ merchants like you that is keeping this bloke in business and the club going further downhill.

  • Demented_Man

    newcastle7 You’ve only got the word of Ashley’s lackeys that ‘no one wants to buy us.”  What you ought to have said is that ‘no one wants to buy us at Ashley’s inflated price.”

    I’d rather attract bad press than associate with so-called fans like you.

  • Toonarden

    newcastle7 So your’e throwing the towel in eh?
    Good job you weren’t fighting for our country in WWII – we’d all be eating bratwurst and jackbooting around the town now.
    Give these protesters some credit – at least their heart is in the right place – firmly behind the Toon.
    Don’t know where yours is though.

  • Nathan Longworth-riggs

    He will never go :(

  • Peter Robson

    If it´s anything like their last campaign, I won´t be holding my breath for results !!!

  • Stephen Walton

    Ffs shake of the apathy stop sitting on your hands and do something. Fed up with the happy clapper defeatists oh lets just wait it will be alright eventually! If you don’t want your club back do nothing but don’t bleat at those who do Ashley out!

  • LeazesEnder

    newcastle7 Go and soak yer heed wazzock!

  • wor monga

    These campaigns all just turn out to be a load of ‘wind and
    p*ss’…with some printed sheets being handed out, and thrown away, the odd
    bedsheet with something written on it displayed, and a few songs being sung
    around the ground…big deal!!

    …the campaign to sack Pardew was that successful he got so sick
    of laughing at it, he surprised everyone by going off to a better paid job…when
    he couldn’t even get back in the game before he came here!!

  • LeazesEnder

    wor monga You are a load of ‘Wind and P*ss’

  • Sickandtiredstill

    wor monga Baaahhhhhhh, Baaaahhhhhh! Soon be time to take up your spot in the pen again.

    Try reading the FACTS posted on the website and educate yourself. While you’re at it, drag Simon along with you, he’s as confused as a kid presented with 5 Easter eggs to choose from. 
    Bad press for Ashley is the best type and the only type that gets to him. That’s why he’s tried his best everywhere to ban those who speak against him or report things about him even if they are FACTUALLY correct.
    It’s well past time something like this was organised and I hope true supporters get behind this campaign.
    Ashley is a parasite on the whole of football

  • wor monga

    LeazesEnder        ……..If the truth hurts!!!……….

  • Sickandtiredstill

    newcastle7  It’s harder to find a buyer for a Club which has 129 million hanging over it. Educate yourself why that really is instead of repeating idiotic childish garbage.
    As a supposed ‘top 20’ fan – you clearly have the IQ of a garden Frog.

  • Maximus Moose

    Toonarden newcastle7 I quite like Bratwurst & i think Ashleys already Jackbooting us right in the Balls

  • heza09

    I take it wor monga is a Mackem.

  • wor monga

    Sickandtiredstill        I’ve got no time for Ashley…or the cheapskate way he’s
    running the club.

    …but in my opinion…” These campaigns all just turn out to be
    a load of ‘wind and p*ss’…with some printed sheets being handed out, and thrown
    away, the odd bedsheet with something written on it displayed, and a few songs
    being sung around the ground…big deal!!

    ….and that’s about it, really!!

  • SteveWilk19

    I’d like a new owner, but I’m not convinced this is the way to do it? Via the “6 degrees of separation” rule, surely someone can be found to make Mike Ashley an offer he can’t refuse.

  • makongo4477

    The loyalty of our fans is the best thing about this club, but it is also the thing that prevents any real message being sent. Ashley will never care about signs and chants, the biggest indicator of discontent would be 20,000+ empty seats in multiple home games. That visual impact would speak more loudly and get more media coverage than any banners ever could. Not turning up is a waste of a ticket and disrespectful to the club players, but after the utterly dreadful performances that have been turned in by the team this year, is it not time for more drastic protesting?

  • Sickandtiredstill

    SteveWilk19 Take a read of the website, particularly the “Myths” section. Explains a lot about just that subject.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Turn your mind back to Ashley’s one and only public statement and his decision on why he was allegedly putting the Club up for sale.
    Doing nothing…does nothing. Everyone is part of the problem if they continue to accept this garbage.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    wor monga Sickandtiredstill It’s exactly what brought him to issue his statement a few years ago on selling the Club.
    That is also a fact.

  • grahame49

    Well by the comments I’ve just read proves that Ashley has divided us. Stay united but continue with what you think is right and what ever happens I’ll always be a proud mag as Ashley has never owned me.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    PeterRobson As I said above, you must have a short memory.
    He put the Club up for sale before following exactly the same type of protests.

  • grahame49

    He doesn’t own us he doesn’t own mike Ashley he doesn’t own us

  • PeterRobson At least they are trying to do something

  • partworntyres

    let’s  give 20% of all we own to shirley, I will do this and i urge you all to join. lets give to him every week, always, for ever. give directly to shirley, his need is greater than ours, giving is better than receiving, 
                                                                         or stop going.

  • Dirty Mag

    The only way you ill get rid of Ashly is if instead of Ashley out banners we turned the stands into a massive advertising campaign for one of his competitors. Take banners advertising JJB sports and the like. Imagine a whole stand with banners promoting his competitors. That would be the only thing to make him take any notice.

  • toffs

    What another complete waste of time….

    If man utd with their fan groups and money could not get rid of the glazers… how is another organised rabble going to work.
    Most people spouting off didnt see the teams and chairman we had before 82. Make this crap look brazilian and ashley a saint

  • Chemical Dave

    How many titles have man utd won since the Glazers took over you t1t ?

  • Chemical Dave

    Mong, please kill yourself.

  • mrkgw

    Supporters need to unite behind this campaign. Those who cite this as being a waste of time need to wake up. Ashley out!

  • mrkgw

    Absolutely. High time we supporters stuck together.

  • NicholasDryden

    Toffs
    It’s exactly that kind of attitude that is keeping us exactly  where we
    are.  Total apathy, knocking someone else for having some gumption but not
    prepared to do anything yourself other than criticise those that are trying to
    effect change. 
    Most effective change of course is just not to go to any more matches, ie boycott a few games. What are you missing you  at the moment anyway.

  • No Brainer

    What a bunch of donkeys, can’t see their own part of this there is very little support for you and your childish screaming. There is no buyer.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    toffs The teams and chairman of ’82 and before would have drooled over the tv money available since the PL was born. 
    Stop this use of a completely ridiculous argument. It’s the only reason this Club is turning a profit, other than cheap players, cost cutting and selling for profit. Ashley is simply McKeag, Seymour, Westwood and Co all over again despite being one of the richest men on the fookin planet!
    Ashley’s business ‘skills’ have reduced all other income while he has increased ‘debt’ which he refuses to pay down let alone write off.
    Every time people like you say a campaign is a waste of time – you seem to forget that he tried to sell the club previously because of exactly the same protests! 
    Grow some cahones ffs.

  • No Brainer

    Chemical Dave and yet still some manu fans shout and scream against them evidence if ever it was needed there will always be sad bas***ds who whinge against owners.
    Truth is they have a void in their lives that needs to be put on some one elses shoulders.

    I’ve been waiting a long time for these lads to do something, I was beginning to lose faith.

  • Greekgeordie

    Here we go again, you got what you wished by Pardew leaving and we all can see the results, a chasm suddenly was developed, and Carver is not good enough to bridge the gap. Now you have started on Ashley, I am for Ashley going but not without a suitable replacement in sight, but I believe that the author and his followers care nothing about the club, regardless what they say, their only aim is to get their way regardless of the consiquences,.
    First a buyer must be found rich enough to fund the club and then Ashley can get a one way ticket to wherever he fancies.

  • No Brainer

    Greekgeordie and then treat the next guy with the same hate and disdain for every mistake they make.

  • No Brainer

    Sickandtiredstill  seems like a very poorly put together of newspaper articles many contradicting each other, and clearly people like steve mcmahon trying to make a fast buck by getting newcastle on the cheap. 
    Doesn’t seem to be any quotes on their about mcmahon’s fellas actually offering £100m required and there is no evidence of any of the parties actually putting the £100m up for Ashley to take. 
    Barry moat’s net worth couldn’t buy the share he spoke of and was nothing but a opportunist trying to get more of his goods sold building a relationship with ashley.

  • No Brainer

    Demented_Man newcastle7 No thats no quiet true is it.

    If as you and your advocates on here would have us believe there is other buyers coupled with mass dissatisfaction amongst all nufc fans it would be easy to create an environment in which Ashley had no option but to sell or spend a fortune on building a team for the top four. 
    Ifsome one wanted to buy the club and Ashley no what would be the harm in that individual or group coming out and saying so. In essence they only need to show they have the money to stoke the support of the disenfranchised nufc season ticket holders.

    Its highly unlikely that no journalist   would not hear of it either

  • Demented_Man

    Greekgeordie Yes, just keep blaming the fans for wanting something above mediocrity.
     Your role model Ashley will love you for it.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    No Brainer Sickandtiredstill Daily Mail, Times, Guardian, BBC……….aye, they are all just ‘articles’ poorly put together, despite quotations being used.
    The true and believable voices in all of this are Llambias and Ashley according to you – once again.

  • No Brainer

    Demented_Man Greekgeordie no role model for me but venom will get you no where.
    Its clear he has done some really good stuff at nufc and also some bombs, one of the biggest is the non appointment of a manager this season, derby burnley et all would find it difficult to resist a persistent pursuit if their manager wanted to come to NUFC. We should have also had a centre back, but not mbiwa he’s not good enough.

    That’s life, or should he spend 20m incase cisse spits at someone or 10m incase colo acts like a muppet and dives in to a challenge. 

    The new manager/coach needs to be someone speciual there is clearly a lack of love for the club from the p;layers why colo or cisse weren’t sitting on the bench willing their mates on yesterday is beyond me.

    And even if you don’t like your owner or manager there is no excuse for that as a player.

    Every loss is turned in to an opportunity to kick the club there its a self fulfilling prophecy.

    You spend a lot of energy spouting at the club what can you rather what are you going to do to change it?

    1957 I agree, it likely won’t work and it will probably be counter productive.  For $%^# sake, just don’t go to the games.  It’s a simple as that.  There are plenty other things to do on a weekend, including other teams.

    If 50K still want to go, you are not going to change their minds.  People don’t like being told what to do.  If they want to pay whatever to be served up that tosh, then it’s their choice.

  • AndyMac1

    Laughlaugh Yeah which is why he hides from MP’s, the Scottish Parliament and 300 fans who had the balls to protest. It’s people like you and your inane comments that make me want to punch the carp out of something ! Could you be around before the next home game ?

  • AndyMac1

    http://ashleyout.com/ It’s a bit like joining AA. I’m ashamed to say I should have done more on my own but I’ve got to help now otherwise forever hold myself responsible. 
    The Fatman has had an easy ride from us for far too long but as I’ve said before he neither likes bad publicity or being shown up in public. He shies away from meeting MP’s, the Scottish Parliament and Rangers EGM’s. He got the hump when Level 7 asked him to get out of our club and he definitely didnt like 300/600 protestors having a go at him ! So we have to do something for our club because no one else is gonna do it.
    For those that still go, try and think about life before the Fatman came ? Remember Cup days out, Semi finals in Europe, beating the mackems on a regular basis ? In fact anything that makes you glad to be a Geordie and a black and white ? Then realise none of that will ever happen again unless you get up off your freaking R’s and join in ?

  • newcastle7

    Another great win for Palace tonight against Man City the sack Pardew lads certainly know their football cannot thank them enough for their efforts.Will see you in Bar Loco to congratulate for helping Alan leave the club results have been great since.Once again well done .Pardew again manager of the year for getting Palace out the relegation zone safe all ready .

  • Sickandtiredstill

    newcastle7 Moron – he is now at a Club who actually sign players which means spending money. If you removed your nose from Ashley’s [email protected] you might even realise as much.

  • NufcToon

    I can’t help but get the feeling all the defending Ashley comments on here are from makems. This tyrant has lied and lied to the fans and the press time and time again. Which had been proven in a court of law. Yet you leap to his defence, blatant Stockholm syndrome.
    For me it boils down to A) am I enjoying my club? B) Is this the man to take us further?
    The atmosphere is beyond shocking in the stadium calm as Hindu cows. Just the way the fat controller wants it.

  • SGM

    You got your last campaign horribly wrong. to blame him for everything thats wrong at the moment is way off the mark.

    GET REAL. Every one needs to boycott game, show the rest of the world what football means to a TRUE GEORDIE. True loyal fans that’s all I hear. Ashley knows that.
    Now here is the truth; the display against Sunderland showed more passion than that of the Toon supporters. You deserve what your getting because you lack true Geordie Pride. You do not have the backbone to actually do anything. Imagine a totally empty stadium and the message it will send out to the world. Show what being a Geordie is and our love for Newcastle United.

    Diddums so you disagree with me! My opinion numpty I have jacked my ticket in after 25 years, I will not keep endlessly following that cause. A no show is my protest you obviously have other ideas – good luck! And your argument that he has not got the balls to face scot parliament is wrong when he does not need to. Ashley is about the £ Nowt else morals, decency, proper conduct go out the window which is why I have come to my conclusion.

    fromtheheed spot on re what it means to be a true geordie. perhaps, people these days don’t have the same passion for being a Geordie? it certainly looks that way. we still have 30.000 die hard fans and the rest are members of the social club

  • Jail for Ashley

    SGM Jail for Ashley  I have thought very carefully about what I’m wishing for and have came to the conclusion that I don’t want to see my team become a billboard for SD, get regular thrashings due to a squad with no pride for the shirt and surrender to the mackems year after year and gifting them survival while relying on there being three worse teams than us to survive ourselves.

  • No Brainer

    1957 very balanced view I think, I’m not happy with things at the club, but there is many influences, bad decisions on player recruitment, injuries, stupid suspensions, and topping that off a fair few bad ref and linesman’s decisions.

    The Carver decison has been proved to be folly to but i was happy to back it, and even for the rest of the reason now is the right time to change it.

    But its not all MA’s fault.

    It’s football, and the ball has no brain.

    Thank you Jackie, yes, this is great news indeed, and also David Elder’s comments on the same topic. I agree with David that this initiative is
    welcome and should be supported by anyone hoping to end the negative
    custodianship of our great club. However, I disagree with him when he says
    that the sackpardew.com campaign didn’t work – I think it was very
    important and ultimately played its part very well in bringing attention to
    just how poor for NUFC AP was for the most part (agreed, he
    had his moments but most of the time things were very bad) and also disregarding
    the impressive Crystal Palace ‘bounce’ which he does deserve great credit
    for. AP has a history of such post-appointment bounces and an equal history of a dreadful trailing off of fortune…. For most of the time, he was a dire manager of NUFC as demonstrated by negative tactics, not optimising the squad at his disposal, ridiculous behaviour and bizarre (scapegoating, contradictory and sometimes senseless) press interviews.

    The good news is that I think the outside world is very, very, very
    (very!) slowly beginning to understand what MA is about and his limited
    ‘ambitions’ for NUFC of PL survival and personally (/for his clothing business)
    cashing in from the free advertising and TV deals to the exclusion of
    all else. Today, the Guardian printed this, which many of you will have seen and which I think bears out the
    point. http://www.theguardian.com/football/picture/2015/apr/07/david-squires-on-mike-ashleys-reign-at-newcastle

    I am also beginning to hear senior figures in
    football mumble (gently and currently to no effect) that this sort of thing is
    bad for the game. So, this is where the AshleyOut.com campaign can focus
    its leverage. Get the message out, tell the truth, expose the lies, help people
    outside Tyneside (and sadly many inside Tyneside) realise exactly what is
    happening and how it is completely against the interests of the great game of
    football, how it is completely unacceptable in our sport and needs to be
    eradicated before this poison does (even) more damage to NUFC and also to
    prevent it from spreading to other clubs.

    The FA, UEFA and the PL people are all
    (quite disgustingly IMO) asleep at the wheel on this travesty of football club
    ownership gone bad. They are all looking the other way, uninterested. That
    in itself is something which needs to be addressed – if they are not guardians/protectors of the game…who is! However, in the short term,
    it is up to us – given the absence of any regulatory framework – to rid our
    great club of this cancer and bring about the change we so badly need. I
    wholeheartedly support http://www.ashleyout.com/. Well done lads and the very best of luck.

    Of course, the coaching staff is also an issue, but let’s get it the right way round. MA is (very!) unlikely to appoint and effectively fund in the transfer market a good new coach and charge him with trying to compete for Europe and challenge for cups. Replacing John Carver is essential for next season, as the recent record and the non-performance at the SOS clearly indicate, but a new coach under MA is likely to be hamstrung by the same restrictions we have been seeing since the club admitted its ‘no capital outlay mantra’ 3-4 seasons back. We need a new regime first, and a new coach second, doing it the other way round is not likely to do us much good at all.

    No Brainer 1957 You and the ball have much in common.

    The only thing you have ever complained about is the lack of a new central defender – enough to actually state once that you wouldn’t be renewing your ST after NEXT season.
    Yet you defend the regime at all turns and even Ashley’s asset stripping involvement with RFC. 
    You take the Club line on everything and critcise every article here , posters who agree with them, or the ‘papers who print the same and the journo’s who write for them. 
    You bow before the man’s alleged business acumen, yet is is only tv revenue which is guaranteeing this club a profit, of which he had zero involvement in.
    Commercial revenues are only now getting back to where they were before he arrived! Hardly surprising when he gives away free advertising to SD along with our retail operation, all of which you have defended as being ‘fair’ return for his ‘interest free loans’. That, despite the fact SD is a PLC and NOT his company – he is giving away NUFC revenue to another company’s shareholders and people like you defend it.
    What has SD given to NUFC to enjoy such lofty benefits from it? Not a single penny. Nothing. 
    Injuries are surely to be expected when you sign players with a history of them (Cisse’s knee, de Jong’s lung/hamstring), or they are used as tools in contractual bargaining, or simply your coaching team seems to produce them at an alarming rate (or even plays them regardless as in Janmatt’s case on Sunday, or Aaron under Pardew).
    Other than what takes place on the pitch, Ashley IS responsible for everything else.
