I have not had an article published on The Mag before but recent events at Newcastle United… so here goes.

Hashtags, bedsheets, boycotts, perhaps a parliamentary petition – There are many novel ways people think we can remove Mike Ashley from our club.

There is a naivety in these novel ideas, I’ve worked in enough large companies to know the balance between making your opinion heard and making your opinion heard, join the union and make your voice heard, just not too loud or someone else, not so loud, will take your place, and here in lies the problem with Mike and he knows it.

Don’t renew your season ticket, don’t go to the matches, don’t buy a pie, or a pint for that matter, all out of protest, because that one pie will make all the difference to Mike, just like that one season ticket.

Yes the season tickets are down this year, do you think Mike is crying himself to sleep on his pillow made out of £50 notes? Maybe if you didn’t renew yours, it could be the one, you could be the one, as part of a collective who brought the fat man down, maybe.

Maybe when Rafa goes and we all go, Mike will care. But we won’t all go, some will still attend, some will still renew, enough will attend occasionally keeping it financially viable.

However, if 50,000 all put away £100 a month we could…We won’t.

If all 50,000 just didn’t turn up one week…enough will still go.

Why don’t half of us not turn up, form a picket line and shout scab at those who do, in a blind hope we might beat a southern capitalist regime, as if history has taught us nothing.

Mike is rich, I mean really rich, and there aren’t many people as rich as him who want to own NUFC.

There are lots of people with enough money who could afford to buy the club, even at Mike’s inflated valuation, but why should he sell? He’s having fun and who are we to stand in the way of a very rich man having fun at our expense? Many years ago I can remember making one of my fat mates do the truffle shuffle for a pint because he was skint, those were the days.

I wouldn’t advocate a boycott, simply because I don’t think enough will boycott and it won’t work, I don’t suggest protests because Mike doesn’t care. We’re stuck with Mike and he is not going to change, it’s best to just accept it and then make an informed decision if you still want to care any more.

A couple of years ago, I used to go to the match to see the lads, have a few beers and boo Sissoko. Then Rafa came along and it all started to feel like it did when Bobby was here – but then Mike does what Mike does.

On the plus side, in a year I can go back to seeing the lads, having a few beers and booing again.

    Click bait at it’s finest, utter drivel of an article, clearly written by one of your ghost writers. I’m sorry Mag – you need to start upping your game here. Lead, follow, or get out of the f***g way!

    • Leazes.

      No its not Simon VDV… this one is fleckmans dad.

      • Scott Robinson

        I thought Bobbi Fleckman was a feminist NUFC season ticket holder married to a real living Man U Supporter living in Manchester. The Dad being once a season ticket holder and maybe still is? Maybe Fleckman or Fleckman’s fans can update?

        Anyway, bad publicity kills your business. There’s plenty of folk all over the UK who won’t buy anything from Sports Direct because they have noted Ashley and how he operates. Ashley is slowly strangling NUFC to death, so the more bad publicity including protests and you’ll find at least he isn’t deaf to it all.

  • Megatron1505

    Wow, that was absolute 💩

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    you don`t no who`s who on here anymore, trolls everywhere, articles popping up all over the place, is it 1 guy or 2 guys under 20 different aliases.,
    they are like Fleas in a Tramps vest.

    • Peaky

          • 8 Pints

            Well you’re all very bad at spotting trolls then. I hope you don’t treat all new people to The Mag like this. I actually came here to read my mates article and saw all your strange comments. And I’m a toon supporter and Geordie.

        …this is the time when the three of them have to make themselves look like a large faction and not just a family of tory trolls.

  • Alex

    Your first article…….but please don’t bother with a second.

  • drc74

    yeah, dont bother to vote either, i mean if u think enough people won’t vote for the party u support whats the point, yeah,…

    • Tom oshea

      Never voted as I don’t believe in free will, decisions are based on unconscious bias influences and actual decision making processes happens in the supraliminal threshold before information becomes liminal. If you don’t believe me, click your fingers in front of your right ear and listen to how many clicks you hear. Sound travels quicker through dry air than it does through grey and white matter, so you should hear two clicks…………. but you only hear one. It’s an illusion my friend.

      • Tom oshea

        I was going to patent the idea but then these two girls with a cup……………………….

      • drc74

        sounds like a closed mind, rational thinking can help you overcome your prejudices if your effected by unconscious bias, i suggest some training, really helps, my job roles requires me to refresh my unconscious bais trainning every year

  • Tweed Mag

    Blimey, talk about giving up without trying. Got a job interview at Shirebrook Tom?

    • Tom oshea

      Satire

      • Tweed Mag

        Not quite – sad and dire would be more accurate. Satire requires a bit of wit and irony.

  • TheFatController

    Some people think Ashley is actually good for us.

    Which is proof you can fool some of the people all of the time.

    Genius.

    • Superdooperhooper

      In the case of clarko Monkseaton and fleckman etc he’s fooling all of the fools all of the time

      • Leazes.

        Don’t worry Monkseaton and fleckman are the same person….. there’s a lot less of them than you think….

        The three of them … they’re going to be enormously busy in the coming weeks trying to be at least 50 different people….

        Lets play a game ‘Name the Troll’

        Watch out for new posters and those with few posts. here and on the chronicle and elsewhere, you can block the posters but Simon Van der Velde will be after hits for the site, so there will be an onus on him and Mark Jensen to push articles.

        The Lee Family

        A. Youngest is Kevin (Wormonger etc) Foolish
        B. Eldest bro is David (fleckman etc) Nasty
        C. Dad is Brian (funlovingexpress) Rambling

        • Superdooperhooper

          I reckon Ben Jones and Monkseaton are the same person . Monkseaton went quiet for a while after he was made to look a liar over the number of unsold season tickets then this Jones turns up defending him. Now Monkseaton is back and Jones has gone quiet again

          • Leazes.

            I can’t help you there as i’ve blocked both of the names months ago so you are probably right… it’ll be the moron himself or the brother.

          • Tom oshea

            the internet is strange, I don’t know monkseaton, fleckman, brian, kevin or david but someone who I think might be fat and has a blue face called Leazes thinks i’m all of them. Is this normal for the interweb?

          • Soldier

            you`ve just confirmed his suspicions with that rant

          • Ben Jones

            Of course . There’s literally no way anyone can disprove what you’re saying as non of you are willing to take up the many offers you’ve had off many of the posters you’ve labelled to meet up before a match . Which means you can continually sully their names . I mean what would you say if you found out we were all individuals who supported Newcastle? How would you respond to their posts in the future?

          • TheFatController

            They both display the same personality disorder traits I did notice.

            Woeful use of circular arguments was a common theme …

          • Westdentoon

            Aye I was thinking the same

  • Superdooperhooper

    Should have had the headline ‘Broken Pencil ‘…utterly pointless . So we continue sitting under nellie the elephant for another year and there’s nothing we can do. We just continue to get [email protected] on and shrug our shoulders do we?

    .

    • 8 Pints

      Yes

  • Leicester Mag

    The do nothing option has of course worked so well. Are you seriously saying a half empty ground has no impact ? The example at Arsenal would challenge this. The ground and the TV coverage are one massive advert for Direct Tat. He hates his beloved brand being impacted. Maybe it won’t work but at present we’ll never know

    • 8 Pints

      But isn’t the advertising at the ground for the TV cameras? It doesn’t matter how many are sat there at the ground; as long as it’s broadcast all over the world and on Sky and MOTD, that’s all that matters to him.

      • Leicester Mag

        Do you think anyone wants their adverts silhouetted by empty seats? Hardly a successful attractive image. Also an image that can’t be ignored

        • 8 Pints

          I think you fail to understand how many hundreds of millions of people see that advertising around the world every other weekend. Makes no difference if any one is sat behind it or not.

  • archiedog79

    What did I just read?

    • Leazes.

      You just read a Troll called Brian Lee father of Kevin Lee and David Lee(fleckman/monkseaton)

      He’s very old and sometimes rambles and on occasion posts as ‘funlovingexpress’…. and others

      He doesn’t like me very much and his politics are to the right of Trump.

      • MichaelMaximusMoose

        😂😂

        • 8 Pints

          I think he’s in his 40s

      • Tom oshea

        I’m 36!

        • Leazes.

          First post under this name troll….. bye bye!

    • mactoon

      probably the worst article I have ever read on here. Is it basically saying sit back, say nothing and just accept the way Ashley runs our club?

      • archiedog79

        What I took from it was this…….blah blah nothing nothing blah…..can’t wait to boo the team in a year.

  • mactoon

    One voice can make a difference, raise awareness and be a start of something bigger as more voices take up the cause. Many voices can make a change!

    Be that one voice, don’t sit in silence with your head in the sand.. make a difference.

    If enough people take up the cause, people will sit up and take notice. There has to be a level of adverse publicity that will initiate change.

  • Mrkgw

    It appears that Ashley is enjoying his being able to stick one on all of those supporters that dared show contempt towards him. Stinging the masses, because he can.

  • East Durham Mag

    Tom you forgot :- a hitman, a harpoon, a surface to air missile. . . . .

  • Wezza

    You notice how these trolls seem to use ex Man Utd surnames as their aliases?

    John O’Shea/Tom O’Shea
    Phil Jones/ Ben Jones
    Wayne Rooney/Martin Rooney
    Wes Brown/Rob Brown

    Not very original are they?
    Mag, seriously don’t allow these trolls to publish articles.

    • Leazes.

      Well done spot on…. they’ll have to do better than that from now!

    Terrible article

  • Big Hairy Man

    I would suspect anyone who refers to Ashley as “Mike” is probably a troll. Even his missus calls him Fatso.

    • Leazes.

      His very first sentence is a lie.

      • Tom oshea

        In my defence the mag wrote the first sentence I wrote

        “Hello themag
        I’ve not posted before, but here goes

        Tom”

    • Duh

      that’s outrageous, I’ve heard Charnley refer to him as Mike loads of times

      • Big Hairy Man

        I think you may have misheard him. It’s difficult to hear what he’s saying with a billiard ball in his mouth whilst wearing his gimp suit.

  • Billmag

    What gets me is genuine poster’s sometimes get there post’s knocked back and yet known troll’s get away with anything, by the way Tom or Richard or Harry don’t bother writing an article again.

    • Billmag

      There you go pleased I put Richard instead of you know what, because my other posts under consideration.

      • Tom oshea

        Hello Billmag, I grew up in Hampshire, mothers side are Geordies, I used to fly up from Southampton to watch as much as I could, I grew up watching Keegan’s team. In my late teens my best memory was giving Kluivert a standing ovation when Barca visited (I was sat in gallowgate and the champions league music gave me tingles along with the flashes from the cameras, we didn’t have iphones back then) and then smashing Blackburn a few days later, I think we got 5. As soon as I was old enough I moved up here, I don’t think any of this makes me a Geordie nor a troll and I’ll be entirely honest, I didn’t actually think they would actually publish it.

        • Billmag

          After reading it I wish they hadn’t published it.

    • TheFatController

      I’ve had a few disappear – usually when I make a point rationally about the contradictions in Ashley’s transfer policy I’ve noticed.

      The truth hurts ?

  • Soldier

    Brighton to break their transfer record for the second time in six months

    • Clarko

      Breaking their transfer record by signing a player for £17m.

      • glassjawsh-got-banned

        which is still more than our transfer record

        • Clarko

          Where did I say it wasn’t?

          • glassjawsh-got-banned

            you didn’t numbnut$. but why bring up how low Brighton’s transfer record is when it is still higher than ours?

          • Clarko

            Exactly, I didn’t, dummy.

            ‘but why bring up how low Brighton’s transfer record is when it is still higher than ours’

            I never described Brighton’s record as ‘low’, you did. I didn’t mention our transfer record, you did, twice. Learn to read dummy.

          • glassjawsh-got-banned

            then why bring it up at all??

          • Clarko

            Why bring up what? Brighton’s transfer record when the conversation is about Brighton’s transfer record?

            D U M M Y !

          • I’ve got the Ki

            I believe it’s spelled Dummett…

          • Clarko

            You’re a little obsessed with Mike Ashley, that’s all you ever talk about, I’m hear talking about Brighton and here you come talking about Ashley again. Obsessed.

          • Megatron1505

            The power of combining swearing insults compels me to call you a fuckingcunt.

            your ability to say stupid $h!t in circles is second only the President of the United States

          • Clarko

            Why bring up what?

            You can’t try and change the subject/insult me when you’re the one saying ‘stupid $h!t’.

          • glassjawsh-got-banned

            jfc. why bring up the exact dollar figure of Brighton’s transfer record when it does nothing but prove everyone else’s point that A) it’s larger than NUFC’s and b) Mike Ashley has no intention of breaking ours. Christ could change your water to wine and you’d argue with him over the vintage…

          • Clarko

            Because it was absolutley relevant and important to any conversation surrounding the topic, it was also informative and it was information that no one else had posted.

            Why would you respond to a factual, informative and relevant comment by calling the poster of that comment a ‘numbnut$’?

      • Soldier

        twice in 6 months, when did we last do that

        • Clarko

          When did Newcastle last break Brighton’s transfer record twice in six months? Probably when we signed Murphy and Lejeune, I believe their transfer record at that point was around £5m, the amount they paid for Ryan. To be fair Brighton did go on and break their record later in that window when they bought Propper and Izquierdo so if you don’t count that we can go back to when we bought Gayle and Ritchie, we broke their record (£4m Duffy) twice then as well.

            What can I say, it was a dumb question.

  • FatParosite

    Defeatist nay sayer. I remember when unions where strong in the north east. The dignity of solidarity. Work to rule. These days nobody can spell solidarity never mind know what it is. Those people who automatically think that this affront to Ashley won’t work are already lost. They have been broken by lies like ‘support the team not the regime’ – ‘Be careful what you wish for’ You have been poisoned into accepting your place. The problem is that poison infects us all. You give in so easily.

    If you believe you can’t make a difference, what difference does it make to you to just try? See what you get. WE have nothing to lose. Ashley has some serious profit to lose.

    I’ve said it before & I will say it again…… If there are empty seats at the SJP for those TV games we have been hand picked for because they know we will buckle down…. Ashley will get a flea in his ear.

    Empty seats at 2 or more games has Scuddamore and Murdock on the phone to Ashley I 100% GUARANTEE it.

    • Leazes.

      Thats the role of the local press, to say you cant do it…… right wing ideologists such as Ryder back the regime constantly, they’ve been at it for years harping on how fan loyalty to the failed elitist ideology of the club is somehow a good thing….its damaging.

      The problem is SJP is a smallish ground for a conurbation of a million and running it as a failure is possible as previous wrong thinking regimes have shown….they have all exploited the situation here!

      The club needs its friends when you have a regime like this, we have a malevolent owner not just a capitalist exploiter…..

      The whole of football has these carpetbaggers not just us….we have to change the laws on club ownership for the sake of the game.

      • Danimal

        To be fair, I’ve seen Ryder make some pretty anti-Ashley comments. Ok, his writing skills are limited to copying everything the equally limited Alan Oliver did (that must have been a fast handover) but that doesn’t make him (Ryder) an Ashley collaborator. Meanwhile I understand reports of Ryder supporting the despicable owner of the Sports Direct outfit are wide of the mark and a trifle unfortunate.

        • Leazes.

          Only when he cant avoid it, its the lie of the whole process that he uses, deflection and avoidance of the issues which have the unfortunate result of helping the regime…. he stays onside with people and players inside who are part of the fixtures and fittings, then there is the process of misinformation, and avoidance, bigging up players to pacify fans…… he was never a United fan and his attachment is purely as a source of his income.

          Yes the reports are purely Alan Oliver templates, with no room for individual thought….so he doesn’t bother to think.

          95% of United fans back Pardew do they?….. well 90% of that was the work of the Lee brothers manipulation of his darn polls which he used to gauge public opinion!

  • Diane Abbots maths teacher

    @Fatparosite. For gods sake don’t hark back to the days of unions. Unions are there solely for one purpose (and it isn’t to protect its members), to promote a hard left ideology which the British public have rejected at the last 2 general elections. NUFC have many, many problems but putting left wing dimwits in charge of addressing these won’t help.

    • Leazes.

      Thats David Lee

      2 Points

      • Danimal

        He’s obviously one of the trolls. So, to recap, in the early 20th century the working man (never mind woman) had no vote, no rights, no sick pay etc etc. The country was ruled by aristocrats, land owners etc. The Labour movement and Union movement came along but not to help, just to line their own pockets (whoever “they” were). Now we are diving headlong into being ruled by working class heroes like Arron Banks, Boris Johnson, David Cameron, Gideon Osborne and Jacob Rees-Mogg. Thank goodness.

        • Leazes.

          That’s basically what he’s saying…. he doesn’t appear to know very much about anything as far as I can see.

    • Danimal

      Don’t be ridiculous.

    • Superdooperhooper

      Hi fleckman . You’ve got a thing about diane Abbot haven’t you ? Do you fancy her or something?

      • Leazes.

        I have a feeling he dresses up in womens clothing, most of the names he choses are women…bobbi fleckman is female PR character from spinal tap…. then there was ‘Zenobia queen of palymra’ on the chronicle site years ago….

        ….. this is one strange dude!

        • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

          Jeez,it comes to something when you call someone stange.

      • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

        Diane’s nowt to do with me, I’d have used the correct punctuation.

    • archiedog79

      Yes you’re right, the unions are a conspiracy to push a hard left agenda at all costs, nothing to do with protecting the rights of the workers from unscrupulous managment and regimes who would happily walk rough shod over your most basic of rights if there was no fear of push back… You dipshi(f)t…..I imagine you’re the type who would tell us all to stand in line and do as we’re told as long as it’s not an inconvenience to you…. The problem isn’t the unions, it’s the fact that today no-one has any tolerance for any problems other than their own…..good on the ifrafagoeswego movement….at least they’re prepared to try.

      • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

        No, unions are there to protect the lazy and incompetent.

    • Big Hairy Man

      OMG! It’s Bobbi Flick-D*ck

      • Danimal

        Definitely. Of ‘I’m not a Tory but actually yes I am’ fame.

      • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

        It’s not me but he has s pount. That said, I thought the far left ideology was rejected in 1979

  • 1957

    My tickets haven’t been renewed, not because I think I’ll be the one that will finally force Big Mike out, but simply because I am sick and tired of seeing my money (and that of others) wasted on substandard players rather than sensibly invested in those that may improve us and a youth development set up that is an absolute joke.

    • Leicester Mag

      Spot on. Every penny spent on cut price sh^te like Hoss is money wasted. Name any other sport or pastime (or any other football club) where fans / an audience would fork out money to see the product go from best in the world Shearer/Ginola etc to cack like Hoss / Manquillo. Sirloin to $h1t sandwich in one easy step

    • Blackburn1066

      WoW Good on you my son, a real fan on the Mag 10/10 to you

  • Megatron1505

    Well, today has been a strange one on The Mag. For a while I wondered if Leazes and Jezza were suffering with acid flashbacks, or were simply conspiracy nuts….but it seems they were right on the money.

    Good people of The Mag (and a few genuine a holes), it’s all true. All these pro Ashley lions are the same small group posting under different names.

    They had me going a couple of times I will admit, but now it’s out there I urge all genuine fans, whether you share the same views as others or not, to block these morons and converse only with genuine fans.

    • Leazes.

      Absolutely no conspiracy…. anyone who was on the chronicle site 12 years ago will remember the names of Kev from Manchester, his brother High in the Milburn (David Lee) and funlovingexpress (Brian Lee)…. they bullied as a group and they are still at it…. right wing politics, wayward grammar and sometimes a hint that they haven’t taken medication.

      …. all of the names that are new on here today are these three!

      That is a promise…. three of them!

        Do you really go around accusing everyone who is new of being a troll? I’ve not even said anything negative about the too or anything I support of Ashley (and neither did Tom). I really am baffled. It’s actually a tad embarrassing.

      Did it months ago, on Jezza’s advice, makes for a much more pleasant reading experience!

  • David2211

    It’s getting worse on here. Awful article.

      Cashly will never be starved out as long as the writers attitude prevais.

  • Leicester Mag

    What the hell do trolls get from this? I’ll never fathom what motivates someone to do this what a pathetic sad existence to get some warped pleasure from this.

    • Leazes.

      Its quite simple…. you are right….. its sadistic pleasure, they want to make people angry and get a high from doing so. They become the centre of attention which they have done to effect here. Block them and they post article and come on as a guest where you cant block them.

      So yes its a psychotic pleasure that makes people jump, it gives them a hit of adrenalin. Impossible to stop them but blocking them will hurt them like anything.

    Protest would work, but it needs to be coordinated and constant. It also needs to be on two fronts in the public eye. On Sky, be it through reduced home attendances and external protests at St James. More importantly for me, at SD locations. The way to get to Ashley is through those who can hold him to account – SD shareholders. Damage his brand, try to effect negative market sentiment on the share price – then this fat pig will take notice and perhaps be held to account.
    Sadly i dont believe the supporters have it in them for a meaningful protest let alone an ongoing war of attrition.

    lets all do a rangers and start a new club. Ashley would lose all his money lol!

    Rangers F.C. is a Scottish football club based in Glasgow. They were founded in 1872 and were acquired by an incorporated company, The Rangers Football Club Ltd in 1899. In the year 2000, Sir David Murray decided to float the club on the stock market, subsequently changing the company into a PLC. In 2012, The Rangers Football Club Plc entered liquidation and the company’s assets including Ibrox Stadium, Rangers Training Centre and intellectual property were bought by Sevco Scotland Ltd. Sevco Scotland Ltd later changed its name to The Rangers Football Club Ltd. The Rangers International Football Club Plc was then formed as the holding company by the owners The Rangers Football Club Ltd, with the latter becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of the former.

      You seem to completely be oblivious to Ashley’s parasitic involvement with them? He held all their trademarks and intellectual rights due to a dodgy £5 million loan, etc etc.

      • cmrowley

        He’s done the same here, one of the reasons he can say the club is up for sale but people are not interested. Very clever, horrible and underhand, but legal and very clever.

      • London_Mag

        The point i was making is that we could start a new club and then when Ashley loses his £450 Million and has to shut down operations we can call that new club Newcastle United and move to St James Park. Hopefully they will have worked up to the championship by then.

    How did this article get published?! Utterly pathetic defeatest nonsense. If Rafa goes then we are f****d, and it will all be the fault of Mr. Ashley. Why should we put up with this s**t?! Fans of other clubs wouldn’t! I was born in Newcastle but moved away when I was 7yrs old, you can’t take the Geordie out of me though, and both the city and NUFC deserve so much better than our current joke of an owner. If Rafa goes then I will start to really give up, and will only follow the news to see if NUFC is linked with any stories involving the words, ‘takeover’ and ‘massive heart attack’.

    One voice can make a difference, raise awareness and be a start of something bigger as more voices take up the cause. Many voices can make a change!

    Be that one voice, don’t sit in silence with your head in the sand.. make a difference.

    If enough people take up the cause, people will sit up and take notice. There has to be a level of adverse publicity that will initiate change.

  • Tony Tolhurst

    years ago in the 70s John Tudor told me that the only way anything would ever change would be if we all stopped going .initially i agreed with him but then pointed out that it was the likes of me going week in week out that actually paid his wages. So I continue going. Why cos I am a supporter We protested about Westwood, McKeage, Fat Freddy . and now Ashley.Nowt changes. Its part of supporting the Toon.Like having a 3 legged dog as some other guy said you wish it had 4 but you still love it. Remember this Ashley said that the best days Internet Trading SD ever had was during the name changing debacle.So I dont think he cares one way or another. Every time NUFC are mentioned SD is also so he doesnt care one way or another. He wont move but eventually things will change. They always do
