I can’t believe how you haven’t picked up on the fact that Saturday was a show of solidarity/force from Mike Ashley and his Newcastle United Gang of Four.
It (Saturday at Palace) was simply a response to those wanting Ashley out.
Short of sticking two fingers up, Mike Ashley and the other three were there trying to demonstrate that the protests mean nothing, that they are more united than ever and determined to stay.
Emotional responses were all that I read about in here and in the press, while no one seemed to read the purpose and intention correctly.
This was as co-ordinated as it was a surprise.
It also shows they take the Magpie group seriously, so we need to ramp up the pressure even more.
I’m amazed that Lee Charnley has been given such an easy ride as he is culpable in all of this and should hang his head in shame.
Maybe find out why Ashley chose Charnley might be a start – that it wasn’t down to talent is a bit of a clue.
Keep up the pressure.
