All Newcastle fans are well aware of the significance of this last week of the season, we all know what the result on Sunday means and we are all well aware of the chain of idiotic events which have led us here.

So why, in what should be a time of serious focus for all employees of the club, do they seem to be going out of their way to annoy fans, provoke resentment and generally wind us up?

(To feature like Notts Toon, send in your articles for our website to [email protected] – all views those of the author etc etc)

Aside from the obvious statements of unfathomable incompetence from the lettuce in charge; blaming the heat, telling players not to watch football, proclaiming himself the best coach in the league and publicly stating his belief that a professional football player under his charge got himself deliberately sent off. There have been a few other notable jabs towards supporters in recent weeks, let’s take a look at a few of them…

Sideshow Bob’s Letter

How stupid do they really think we are? Well, very, judging by the thousands still happy to line Ashley’s pockets and wear his shirts whilst claiming hatred of the man, but seriously, who did they expect this letter to fool?

Did they really think that this emotional script from a man who has remained silent for the previous seven years, including the last relegation, would be regarded with anything other than suspicion and mockery?

Why would he not just give a spoken interview if that is really what he wanted to say, since clearly (as demonstrated since) he can speak English pretty well. I can only assume that anyone who truly believes that these are the words of Coloccini has recently descended from their lofty perch on a Christmas tree.

Fans Forum Meeting

What Fans Forum Meeting? The one promised by the club as it was deemed “too important to wait until after the season”, so when is it? What has been said? Did Mike Ashley attend as the forum requested? Don’t worry, you didn’t miss anything, the meeting has still not been scheduled and the club has remained typically silent on the issue, but they haven’t been silent about everything have they?

The Sports Direct Statement

For a club who communicate with the public about as often as I communicate with the spirit of Stalin, it was at best uncharacteristic when a mere 2 hours after a television programme was aired disparaging the owner’s main interest (SD), a club statement was released deploring the journalism involved.

As clear and proven experts in lying to customers and employees it should perhaps have been considered that Newcastle United was probably not the most reliable character witness for Sports Direct to call on. The speed and ferocity of not one but two statements from the club arrived in stark contrast to the stonewall of silence around supporter unrest, boycotts, protests and thousands of empty seats.

Social Media

Take a look at the Newcastle United official Twitter or Facebook account, what do you see? I see a wall of interviews with a man who has the intellectual capacity of the main ingredient in salad, match reports of the club’s defeats at EVERY level of competition, and post after post of cheap tat merchandise being flogged under that suspicious agreement with Ashley’s Tat Shop. Of the more recent social media utterings none have been more galling than…..

The New Kit Launch

REALLY????? Talk about unbelievably bad timing! Talk about salt in the wound! Talk about PR disaster! Talk about grabbing a tiger by the tail!

What the hell was the guy who decided that this week was the perfect time for a kit launch smoking? Especially a kit that looks well……sh*t.

newcastle fans

Not only this but they have chosen five players to pose for the kit launch who, in all probability, four of which won’t be here next season no matter what division we are in, with Janmaat, Colocinni, Krul, Sissoko and Colback used in promotions.

I suppose they thought it would come over better than dragging Siem De Jong out of his sick bed and making him prop up Cabella, in case a strong gust of wind presented itself and blew him over, but seriously…..come on!!

I can only conclude that the club must actually want the fans to revolt, they must be looking to provoke us into some kind of explosive action. Maybe they really want to push us so far that the only people remaining inside SJP on match day are so docile and complicit that they can do and charge what they want, without a hint of complaint from the plastic Toon Army.

I will end this piece with a personal statement, a feeling which I expressed in my very first piece for the Mag and which remains true today.

Any Newcastle fans attending a match at St James’ Park are fools, part of the problem and complicit in the destruction of what used to be a football club.

    In all fairness we need to forget about politics behind the scenes for 90 minutes and get behind the team! Don’t give them excuses to blame the fans for turning on them, be UNITED and then at the final whistle we can show our disgust at the regime. However we owe it to the history of the club to support no matter what, make St.James Park an intimidating place for one afternoon! We all want to be in the Premier League next season

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Sadly I would tend to agree with you. As can be seen by some posts on this site, some so called supporters still believe the hype about Pardew and repeat journalistic garbage as though its true, even when Pardew himself has said otherwise.
    Of course it goes against the grain for all supporters to not want to get behind the team at this time. But getting behind the team has done little to change anything. Actually, it’s done nothing at all.
    Why get behind a team belonging to an owner and his management who have told us all to our face that nothing except PL survival is their aim? Nothing else. Zero. What does anyone not understand about that?
    It’s been clearly spelled out, yet people still go along and are in reality supporting this approach, even if they complain afterwards. Why complain? 
    We are all told what the product on offer is. If you keep going then there is no escaping the fact you are indeed supporting Ashley’s ownership and approach – expecting something which you have been told REPEATEDLY is not going to happen.
    Black n White madness perhaps. But it is clearly madness nonetheless.

  • Marklp

    The vast majority, over 90% of the fans will be at SJP supporting the team, in the hope we don’t go down.  Not one of them are happy with the situation but they will support the team, not the regime and many of them will protest after we have achieved safety.  That’s what being a Newcastle fan is all about.  For the last thirsty five years I have supported them through thick, thicker and occasionally thinner and I will do so on Sunday.  I cant wait to see the back of cashley or at least a change of approach but to want the club to implode just to see the back of him is wrong and may actually keep him here longer. 

    Those fans there on Sunday are not part of the problem at all, they are going there because they love NUFC end of story.  Anybody who is looking forward to NUFC’s demise this weekend can not claim to a true Newcastle fan.  So I would say Notts Toon you are wrong and 50,000 people are right.

  • Alexh1984

    ‘If your going to the match your part of the problem’
    Well I disagree. It’s becoming increasingly obvious that fans like yourself who boycott every game and call for nothing else are having no effect whatsoever.
    Things are getting worse, not better. Some fans have boycotted for years and what has it achieved? Nothing.
    Fair enough as a personal statement of not giving Ashley your money but that’s all it is.
    The fans are filtering away into this idea of ‘boycotting’s the only way’ but it won’t work as they are replaced by less passionate or even non supporters on a cheap day out.
    If we had all the boycotters back this Sunday the AshleyOut sit in would work brilliantly.
    Liverpool fans didn’t boycott they protested, Blackpool fans last week did the same.
    I’m afraid over the years many have just quietly wandered away and that is why we’ll never succeed, those who want change the most have gone.

  • Ron Knee

    Wilson001 Why is relegation such a bad thing?
    If we survive, it will be business as usual next season with yet another relegation battle in prospect.
    If we’re relegated, it MIGHT hasten the bloodsucker’s departure and we might even win a few matches!

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Alexh1984 Well, the flaw in that argument (Liverpool) is self evident. Comparing NUFC to Liverpool is the very problem this Club is facing under Ashley. All good and well still going to the match and demonstrating when your team is battling for the PL, domestic and Euro honours – but what do we have? Oh to be in their or Arsenals shoes, yet their supporters aren’t accused of being deluded are they?
    Pay your money, turn up and be prepared for nothing other than PL existence? All that does is ensure the ground stays full and we endorse the very shyte he is shoveling down our throats.
    This is the bloke who even did away with singing sections as he doesn’t want to hear our protests! Until we can make sure a boycott means a boycott and a protest means thousands, or tens of thousands, going along to the match and waving a a piece of paper for 5 mins is going to achieve nothing.

  • NottsToon

    What on earth would possibly make you think they are right? Certainly not winning football matches, certainly not the regard they are held in by the club, certainly not the destructive act after destructive act inflicted upon what used to be a football club.
    Explain to me how they are right and I am wrong. Explain to me how their support and money is rewarded. Explain to me what continuing attending the match does to benefit anyone other than Mike Ashley.
    Continually providing a living backdrop to what amounts to a giant advert is a huge part of the problem, and the fact that so many blindly still do that is a knife to the throat of what used to fill so many with pride.
    Your ceaseless devotion is ridiculous and treated with the utmost contempt by those in charge, if you cannot see that then you are truly a fool.

  • NottsToon

    What does the club gain from being Premier League whipping boys AGAIN. Explain to me why staying up is so important?

  • NottsToon

    No effect? We’ve heard more from the club in the last month than in the last 7 years. Even captain silent has found his tongue, if you haven’t noticed the effect on a national scale then you must be blind, finally the whole of football is recognising the crime that is Newcastle United. It has taken 8 long years for a so called fan like yourself to dismiss that as “no effect”. Wake up!

  • Alexh1984

    You missed Blackpool also used as a comparison so the flaw comes straight back at you I’m afraid.
    As much as I agree that a long term sustained boycott would work it simply won’t happen. It hasn’t in the history of football. People will always go no matter what so instead of chasing a impossible dream why not move on and try other approaches?
    Again a sit in will make a statement. Draw attention if nothing else.
    We’ve been completely missing the point, sadly the boycotters are the minority, that’s fact. We need to get the non boycotters on side to show in the largest possible way (number wise) that we’ve had enough.
    To do that successfully the return of boycotters would be a huge help.
    We need to move on.

  • East_Stander

    I take exception to the assertion that me and 50000 others are the problem. I am as unhappy as the next fan about the shambles Ashley has created but anyone who thinks NUFC being relegated will get rid of him is deluded!
    Being relegated will only keep him here longer. The bloke buys failing businesses and makes a profit. He has no track record of selling When the price is low which is what the case would be if we go down!
    By attending the match I am not approving Ashley or Carver or condoning the performances on the pitch but I am hoping that the loyal 50000 can push the 11 individuals on the pitch to keep the institution that is NUFC in the top division. I was there before Keegan and stayed when we last got relegated so have witnesses the dross that is the 2nd tier and do not want to see it again.
    There will be NUFC after Ashley be that 1 year or 30 years time. Everyone is entitled to their opinion on how best to get rid of him but any ‘fan’ having a go at others for wanting to support the team maybe should get themselves along to watch a top 4 club where support is fickle!

  • Marklp

    NottsToon  Simply because its called blind loyalty and I for one am happy with that label, now you can say I’m a fool or a tool for saying that, not really bothered.  NUFC is the heart of the city and NUFC is bigger than Ashley and will be here when he is long gone, I like many hope its sooner rather than later and I will be hanging around after the final whistle to show my disaproval.  I have been around long enough to see worse time than this 8000 fans at home to Bristol Rovers, I didn’t walk away then and I wont walk away now.

  • Wilson001

    Does that question really need to be answered? Why would any fan settle for us to be relegated tomorrow and go into the Championship? Any Newcastle fan should be there tomorrow supporting the team and then venting their anger at the regime after the game no matter what the result is!

  • Ron Knee

    East_Stander But if we aren’t relegated, how do you see next season unfolding? Do you think Ashley will make the necessary changes and investments? I don’t!

  • Sickandtiredstill

    East_Stander He’s tried to sell the Club three times now and went as low as 80 million. Plainly your argument is factually incorrect.

  • NottsToon

    Exactly what Ashley relies on, he’s laughing at you and your sit down protest.

  • LeazesEnder

    Absolutely agree… a pub side that can fill a stadium doesn’t need to become professional or have ambition and those turning up just to meet their mates for a ‘matchday’ experience are a huge part of the problem….

    I identified it years ago, it doesn’t take a genius to see that there is an ‘ouroborus’ of destruction in the relationship between a conservative docile and hostile press…. a huge fan base…. and a club that has no ambition…. only by driving a wedge between the elements can we hope to go forward.

    Even Pardew recognised the club as ‘one of the largest in world football’…. it didn’t stop him agreeing to run it as that ‘Pub’ club!

    Too many fans just don’t care, in this, an area that has had its heart ripped out of it by changes in its industry, its become a docile onlooker as other areas lift the trophies of life.

    Northern Powerhouse of football….my eye…. more of the same more likely.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Wilson001 The fact is though, the best part of the ‘52000’ sit silently and don;t complain nor protest about anything at all.

  • Ron Knee

    Wilson001 Do you think the Board will conduct a serious investigation if we stay up? Expect a few cosmetic changes and the appointment of a failure like Steve McClaren. What an alluring prospect!

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Marklp NottsToon 8000 for BR, etc – let’s be honest, was due to the ground being redeveloped. If you were there then you know that.
    And starting a [email protected]@ing match as to the length of support is no use at all. I’ve been going since 1972 so I suggest my comments are as relevant as anyone’s. I was there when we returned from the  FA Cup loss and 60,000 crammed into the ground, and 250,000 lined the streets. THAT was support. Not 52000 who can barely manage a song these days let alone a meaningful protest.
    I know exactly what this Club means to me, my mates, this City and it’s community. Mr MJW Ashley doesn’t give a flying [email protected] about it, us, you or anything else other than the 000’s .on his MASH balance sheet.
    I am not personally attacking anyone by the way. I just do not believe any longer that going along will change anything unless it happens at every single game, home and away.
    Sadly, the supporters of old do not really make up the crowd these days as is witnessed by the lack of atmosphere and the lack of interest in trying to force change.

  • LeazesEnder

    East_Stander Don’t take it personally, but you are condoning the way the club is run….. you are one of the fans who Lee Ryder would describe as wanting nothing from the club but effort….

    …. It is a problem…. a huge fan base allows the club the luxury to fail and fail….

  • East_Stander

    No I don’t think things will change. But i don’t think things will change if we go down either!

  • Sickandtiredstill

    LeazesEnder too true – we have become the practical application of “be careful what you wish for”.
    I for one wish for a whole lot more and am prepared to do something about it.

  • East_Stander

    I can’t remember any factual recent information recently, particularly in light of the new TV deals suggesting he would take £80 Million?

  • East_Stander

    Anyway lads I am not against your position and have probably been there at times myself over the last few years. I guarantee I am against Ashley as much as anyone and hate watching what he has done, I just can’t agree that getting relegated will solve anything except Sky making a big song and dance about fans crying, the Mackems taking the piss and every other team bringing it up everywhere we go on our holidays or for work!
    So I am for the sit in protest and anything else once we are safe!

  • Wilson001

    Do we even have a Board these days? I can’t imagine Ashley and Charnley conducting anything whether we stay up or go down. The only important part is that we do not turn our frustrations onto the players tomorrow and that we get behind them. Surely for one game we can all do that? No matter who gets the job there’s always going to be positive/negative opinions on their appointment. However that’s something to look at after 5pm tomorrow!

  • Sickandtiredstill

    East_Stander Barry Moat, 2009. Factually correct and reported on nationally.
    “Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has rejected the latest £80 million offer from prospective buyer Barry Moat despite it meeting terms he indicated would be acceptable less than a week ago.”

  • NottsToon The sit down protest will be a farce . They’ll just lock the doors and walk away chuckling to themselves . Walk out and sit down outside [ peacefully ] and there will be chaos . It’s important to sit down on the road because the police won’t be able to use their cavalry .

  • Sickandtiredstill

    East_Stander I think our PL history of late with the Mackem’s has provided them with enough [email protected]@ taking opportunities. 
    If we go down it will have zero to do with the support given or the support withheld.

  • East_Stander

    6 years ago……

  • Sickandtiredstill

    East_Stander Aye, coz we came back up as record breaking Champions. Fickle fans once again forgot all about everything and Ashley got back on the gravy train.
    He’s never faced the same again until now – hence this argument or debate.

  • Ron Knee

    Wilson001 What exactly are fans supporting nowadays? Can we continue to call the club NUFC? It’s more like a branch of Sports DIREct.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Ron Knee Wilson001 Sports Dire-wrecked

  • Alexh1984

    You mean the one off spurs boycott? Which I participated in. Yes that gained attention but it’s not going to happen every week like you seem to be suggesting it should.
    If you want a big protest you need to unite the fans, that means the 40,000 that still attended the spurs match.
    Tell me apart from boycott and preach on here what else have you done?
    Have you protested outside the stadium? Joined the march? Stood outside SD in the rain?
    Boycotting is ok but it’s also quite easy, it’s going to take a lot more considering we know there’s around 40,000 fans who simply won’t stay away.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Alexh1984 And why the [email protected] is that? That is the whole point. What are those 40000 expecting to see coz sure enough plenty still complain. We’ve been TOLD what the plan is yet people still go along and then complain about wanting better things.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Alexh1984 Unless the majority of the 52 actually do something to prove they are there, let alone protest, then things just stay the same.

  • Ron Knee

    Sickandtiredstill Ron Knee Wilson001 I stand corrected!

  • Alexh1984

    That’s life mate, I don’t have the answer. As I said I joined the spurs boycott but many still go. Boycotting that game made a statement but not a big enough one.
    We need to put aside our own thoughts if we want to make the biggest statement possible but just like the non boycotters won’t stay away for one game the boycotters won’t go for one game to try a different approach.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Wilson001 Which job? Are you going to be filled with joy if McClaren turns up here?
    If the Board once again incorporates Llambias Leac, who were run out of RFC for attempting to do Ashley’s bidding?
    When another bunch of no names from deepest lower league Europe are rolled out, courtesy of that 53 million Ashley has in the Club accounts?

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Alexh1984 The issue here is the one that exists in reality.
    The fan base cannot agree on anything and that is something which completely plays into Ashley’s hands.
    I stand by my own thoughts that the majority of so called ‘supporters’ these days are nothing of the sort.

  • East_Stander

    To be honest you could be right. Personally I just can’t face the pain of watching us fall to perhaps lower than we have ever been with absolutely no guarantees of a new owner to bring us back to where we all want to be.
    As I say each to their own and I totally get where your coming from but I would rather take my chances that someone would rather buy a Premier League club off him. We the fans definitely need to pressurise him, the sit in and alternative fans shirt are good ideas but in my opinion there is a line between being a constant thorn in his side and pushing him to destroy the club.

  • Greekgeordie

    The decision to attend is down to the individual, who are you to tell 50000 what to do, I wished Pardew out but on the right time and when a suitable replacement was in place, you probably are one that facilitated Pardew’s exit, by protesting, boycotting and demonstrating regardless of the outcome. the results of your actions are clear for anyone to see.

  • Alexh1984

    I agree, too many have been replaced by people who couldn’t really care less about the club as long as they get a cheap afternoon out.
    I was all up for the spurs boycott and it had an effect but I now want to voice my discontent. The sit in will likely fail and I’ll feel let down by fellow supporters who leave the stadium quietly but I’m going to have a go.
    I will try anything now, whether it works or not I want to say I tried.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    East_Stander Fatty can’t make his mind up to sell even when he had the chance. He just see’s 000’s. That is what NUFC is to him and MASH.
    Why does he care about 250 million? He lost 300 million on a punt with HBoS shares and he’s still worth close to 4 Billion quid. Never batted an eyelid. Gambled 43 million on Tesco shares while saying he’s not prepared to ‘bankroll’ the Club.
    Sat on 53 million of cash/profit this season and here we are with no manager/coach, a BoD soon to consist of only him and Charnley with no FD in place and a team full of cut price chancers bought purposefully to sell on.

  • Wilson001

    Whoever comes in as manager is just going to be under the same restrictions as previous ones. We need to support the team tomorrow as even if we do go down Ashley won’t sell due to the huge losses he would make.

  • Marklp

    There was no p###ing match, just highlighting, the reason I will be support the team on Sunday is the same reason I was supporting them in the early 80s, which will never change.

  • NottsToon

    Yes, I have done all that and contributed regularly on here. Apart from miss one match and sit moaning in your seat whilst handing over your money what have you done but collaborate?

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Greekgeordie Read Pardew’s own words you numpty. Don;t let facts stand in the way of your whingeing argument.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Marklp Did you protest against the Board back then? Did you ever support the Club at ANY time and were told they have no plans to compete for anything except survival and a pay day?
    Nah, nor me. Even during the worst of times we have always tried to win something. Until now and Ashley.

  • Munich Mag

    Sickandtiredstill East_Stander I think you’re making things up. If the buying price for the toon was ONLY 80 million then I would buy them…

  • Sickandtiredstill
  • Demented_Man

    Greekgeordie Don’t talk bollox.

  • Alexh1984

    I’m sorry but I don’t believe that for one minute. Maybe I’m wrong but of the few that turned up at SD the other week I can’t imagine you were one of them. As I’m guessing you live in Nottingham it’d be quite a trip to go to protest while boycotting. I too have done the above apart from the SD protest. I have also written on here but prefer to use facts and figures rather than push ideas while accusing fans of being the problem. Saying that makes your ‘sit moaning’ comment look quite stupid. Ashley’s the problem not fellow fans.

  • EastStander

    Dear notts toon. Why dont you kust copy and paste the same anti fan posts you always do to save you time every week?…..oh wait YOU HAVE. And this fool will still be there tomorrow giving my all and hoping we stay up.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Demented_Man Greekgeordie Wouldn’t like to steal the only thing you are appear to be good at.
    Try reading the mans own quotes during interviews, instead of continuing the misguided and completely incorrect folklore of crybaby ‘supporters’.
    If you care not to listen to his own words than that explains everything.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Alexh1984 Lads, the facts are that we will never get everyone to agree – even while most of us all agree Ashley is the fault.
    We need some form of mechanism in which we can improve that and for everyone to get behind.
    Presently, both approaches are half hearted. Boycott, external protests or in ground demonstrations – none of them are being taken up en masse.

  • NottsToon

    Believe what you want kid, makes no odds to me. Keep moaning about getting bummed every week whilst taking your seat that you paid Ashley for. As bad as a scouser, always the victim, it’s never your fault.

  • Alexh1984

    And you keep up the great work with your articles that bang on and on about the same thing without finding any answers. It’s working really well.

  • ilullissat

    Totally agree with this article.The secrecy and the way the club is run wouldnt be out of place in North Korea.

  • Chemical Dave

    I can’t stand the thought of us going down yet I can’t stand the thought of us staying up for more of the same….for that’s what we’ll get. Stay up and nowt will change, go down and something might. I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

  • Want a club that tries

    I read on one of the posts on here, (I can’t remember who off ) but when the club was up for £100 million he had 2 offers on the table and he never even looked at them, also he did not turn up for a meeting with the Arabs who bought Man City,, he doesn’t and has never wanted to sell the club, in my oppinion he is more than happy to get all this free advertising,, he wants 280 million, what did liverpool sell for? NUFC will never sell for that kind of money, I repeat he has no intension of selling, he makes to much money out of the advertising,,
    What is needed is more bad publicity about his companies and boycott off his stores,

  • EastStander

    All we can all hope for is change. Ill be there to encourage during the 90 mins and there to protest afterwards. Strange times indeed. I dont see relegation as a total disaster anyway. Be great if it made ashley go but i doubt it would. We live in hope though. If we do go down theres a lot of closer away games though!

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Want a club that tries If he wasn’t interested or looking then why did he bother going all the way to Dubai?
    Of course he considered selling – he just never went through with it. No doubt he didn’t sell to Barry Moat because the team stormed the Championship and came straight back up into the money.
    Love the way some of you so called supporters completely ignore the facts and make scenarios up for yourselves.

  • Chemical Dave

    Definitely think there’s more chance of him leaving if we go down mind. Like you say, on the flip side there’s some cracking away days to look forward to!

  • Porciestreet

    Agree Totally…!

  • Phildene

    EastStander you’re the kind of fan the article’s about -unfortunately there’s over 50k+ like you and unless ‘fans’ like you change your attitude towards Ashley and stop going/ lining his pockets, this club will never change-sad really

  • Phildene

    Greekgeordie Silly fool

  • Phildene

    Sickandtiredstill LeazesEnder Nicely said

  • EastStander Yeah, and looking forward to finishing 16 th next season !

  • Toon Magpie

    If you want to go go and if you don’t don’t. We don’t need to be at each other’s throats.

  • Toon Magpie

    Pardew is no longer manager and so has nothing to do with this club now.

  • Toon Magpie

    Beginning to think NuttsToon toon is not a Newcastle fan in any shape or form. Yet here he is on a platform dictating to the 52,000 to do as he says. Talk about hypocrisy when we already have a dictator in Ashley we don’t need another one.

  • Toon Magpie

    Believing the daily rags lol.

  • Toon Magpie

  • Toon Magpie

    It does nothing for performances on the pitch, Carver must go. We cannot have him headcoach next season

    It is anorexic right now. I am staying away but do not dictate to everyone else like NuttsToon . Yes you deserve that name.

    It is down to them not you. It is what they think not you. That’s how people operate. Freedom of choice.

  • Toon Magpie

    Kim Jung Un is a dictator as is NuttsToon. Unfortunately for NuttsToon he has no power to force anyone to do anything so is a babbling idiot.

  • Toon Magpie

  • Toon Magpie

    Sickandtiredstill you echo Nuttstoon like you are the same person it is  uncanny that nevwr heard two Newcastle fans agree so closely in everything.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Toon Magpie Numb nuts – do you know the difference between an article and a verbatim quotation, citing the source?

    If so, you might enjoy this one –

    Ashley, makes not secret of the fact that he wishes he had never bought the club from the Hall and Shepherd families.

    “Of course I regret it,” Ashley said. “I never said I was an expert in football clubs. I tried my best. But I accept my best was woefully short.”

    Im also the kind of fan that was there when we rubbish under previous regimes. The kind of fan that was there when there was 17-20 thousand at times and sometimes even less. I know this is maybe different as theres a plain lack of ambition. All im saying is its a choice. If i hadnt have been there under the constant drag of mckeag and the like i wouldnt have enjoyed the hall/keegan rebirth as much. Im assuming a lot of people like notts toon etc were boycotting then unhappy with sales of players like beardsley, gazza, waddle and kevin brock (kidding) so nothing changes.
    We all have an opinion or choice. Doenst make anyone a fool or better than anyone else. I dare say with social media back then we may have been at each others throats then too. I wont argue with another fans point of view as we are all entitled. One thing i will say is that myself and anyone else who do choose to go dont deserve to be called fools, idiots or ashley-ites. Peace out

    Toon Magpie And what science exactly is that – your schoolboy chemistry set?

    Please feel free to show us the link to this confirmed science.

  • Toon Magpie

    Sickandtiredstill what has that got to do with it. Ashley just says stuff but who believes it not me. He just did it to get fans off his back you gullible fool. He has no intention of selling the club even if we go down again he can afford it. Wed have to go down two leagues

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Toon Magpie Sickandtiredstill I suspect you believe in the tooth fairy and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
    Glad to hear you know the inner workings of Ashley’s mind.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Toon Magpie Sickandtiredstill Nah! Two people, or more, who actually agree? Well well well, go figure that one – it must mean we are indeed the same person.
    What a complete coconut you are.

  • Toon Magpie

    Sickandtiredstill Science says wearing red is also an advantage. It has been working  it has worked a treat couldnt have a better outcome we just need Hull to win and we are down. Cheer Hull on and thats Ashley’s problem. We may only survive if Hull doesnt win because we will not win.

  • Toon Magpie

    SJP not SNP lol

  • Munich Mag

    Sickandtiredstill Munich Mag East_Stander  i cried at wembley in 1974 & 1975 mate. is that long enough a fan for you ?

  • Toon Magpie

    Sickandtiredstill read all about it, read all about it.Papers print any old sh_t.

  • martydee1

    Alexh1984 ” be the change that you wish to see in the world”, Mahatma Ghandi, now there’s a bloke who knew what he was talking about

  • Toon Magpie

    NottsToon So we have a club to support.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Toon Magpie Sickandtiredstill Ahh right, it’s science because you say so and agree with it? It’s worked a treat indeed, that’ why we are fighting relegation tomorrow. 
    COCONUT!

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Toon Magpie Sickandtiredstill Sadly the internet allows you to write yours.

  • Toon Magpie

    Sickandtiredstill thats up to them. are you sure you are notts, you sound notts

  • Toon Magpie

    Ron Knee Wilson001 we support Newcastle not the regime

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Toon Magpie NottsToon Err, you are the one ‘liking’ Mackem posts on another article here. GFYS.

  • Toon Magpie

    Sickandtiredstill that is you arguing with yourself. I’ve read it and you are the only one conversing with the mackem

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Toon Magpie Sickandtiredstill You are the only so called supporter ‘liking’ a Mackems post. Says a lot about you.

  • Toon Magpie

    Sickandtiredstill yes it worked we are in the position many fans wanted and predicted, self forfilling we did it. We got what we wanted.

  • Toon Magpie

    Fickle fans?

  • Toon Magpie

    You wish to dictate the internet as well as fans of Newcastle you are as butts as NuttsToon. You are him perhaps

  • Toon Magpie

    Why do you both dictate to the rest of us fans and insult us with your pathetic argument? Just leave us to support the club how we wish. I am not sure what you want perhaps you aren’t even sure yourself, here you are arguing with a fan who has not attended for weeks and is watching on TV tomorrow. Yet you cut us no slack and give our fans a barrage of abuse you are no fan admit it come clean.

  • MartinJW

    Same old predictable rubbish from Notts Toon. Anyway it’s bed-time

  • Toon Magpie

    Sickandtiredstill what does it say? what post where? How do I know if someone is a fan of the club or not. There is no flag next to their name like they used to. You make stuff up to wind people up.so you can argue with them

  • Toon Magpie

    Nuttstoon was unable to to state the names of the players in the strips, they are in fact, Janmaat, Perez, Krul, Coloccini(double c not double n) , Sissoko. No Colback in the picture.

  • NottsToon

    Surprise, an article which causes debate and the most obvious troll on the internet Toon Magpie appears. I’d love to reply to every single one of your comments but you are clearly either 12 or only aloud computer access when your nurse is asleep.

  • East_Stander

    Get behind the team! Bunch of fannies not real fans! Nowt to do with Ashley. Support the team not the regime….piss off and get some tickets for Old Trafford!

  • East_Stander

    Class fan you!

  • East_Stander

    Think he should get a ticket for Forrest….might already have one? Toon Toon Notts Army….Aye do one!

  • Sickandtiredstill

    NottsToon Hello Brother, apparently me and you are the same person ;-) That fekkin moron can’t seem to keep track of his own posts and realise he contradicts himself through all of them.

    I guess his PS4 was taken off him and he couldn’t play PM Manager for the rest of the day.

  • East_Stander

    So he will sell for 80m? Your a lunatic!

  • East_Stander

    Total knacker! Gives the proper fans a bad name!

  • Toon Magpie

    Maybe if NuttsToon played the game he would know who Perez is and how he looks totally different from Colback. Fool.

  • Toon Magpie

    Well said

  • Toon Magpie

    NottsToon There is debating with your type Nuttstoon, you’re a ducking idiot. 

    I am part of the solution I am not going to the match yet you hate me too, you hate those that go, you hate those that are not going. You hate everyone.

    You are not a fan you are a complete idiot crybaby who has lost his dummy now grow up.

  • NottsToon

    Did your mam know you were up late to post that? What are you doing in half term sonny? I’m suggesting a few extra English lessons wouldn’t go amiss, catch up with the rest of your class maybe.

  • EastStander

    Very well said. Us plastic fan fools need to stick together. Wonder if as hes from notts he went there to aboid the miner steike battle as well. Scab lol

  • NottsToon

    What fookin language is that man? Do you have fingers or flippers?

  • EastStander

    Thatd be my drinking flippers as matchday and nice early start. Apologies for my lack of proof reading. Enjoy your day
