Newcastle fans were asked once again to demonstrate outside Sports Direct against Mike Ashley on Sunday afternoon before the Chelsea match.

The pre-Tottenham demonstration was a great success (see below), as Newcastle fans continue to protest against Ashley’s running of Newcastle United.

Despite a rainy Sunday, another great turnout on Northumberland Street today, fans asked to turn up for 1pm.

The fight goes on.

    From ‘Retail Gazette’ website:

    Sports Direct shareholders have been urged to vote against Mike Ashley at the company’s annual general meeting on September 12.

    Proxy adviser Glass Lewis & Co has recommended shareholders challenge chief executive Mike Ashley and chairman Keith Hellawell.

    Ashley is accused by Glass Lewis of “repeated poor governance practices”, adding that negative media stories against Ashley have damaged the company’s public image.

    Great stuff. In Ashley’s grand scale of things, this may just small. However, it’ll get highlighted during the tv broadcast later, and it’ll be another little kicking for him. One day, these little things will all add up and he’ll have had enough. Roll on that day.

    I see Wonga is about to collapse. Hope he has a few shares in that.

      All eighty odd of them do not represent the views of the true fans. It was embarrassing.

        Well, you know the answer next time, Choose not to partake. Simple. But, they do this in a bid to see off this shockingly bad regime and in turn, improve our club. Fellow supporters cannot be criticised for that much.

    The match is broadcast live and sky have cameras all over the place, so they decide to protest in Northumberland St., beggars belief.
