I have been a Newcastle supporter all my life and attended my first game in 1963.
In my time I have witnessed many rebellions against the various boards/owners.
Let me tell you, boycotts have never worked, as we are all too loyal.
Too many of us will not boycott games, FACT.
In the past few years a merchandise boycott has been mentioned but people still bought strips.
Let’s try another way, very simple, but it will let the thick-skinned cockney know the true feeling of supporters. At present the fans taking action and members of action groups are a minority and I am sure that is what he thinks.
Let’s start a simple petition to tell Mike Ashley how many fans want him to go, he then may realise the strength of feeling against him.
I am convinced we could achieve signatures from more than 50% of the St James Park capacity.
I know it’s a soft option but it will show how many supporters care about the Toon.
We want Rafa to stay and have a fair crack of the whip (he has not yet).
The actions can still continue but please do not ask us to boycott games, as this is counter productive to the team itself and as I say, have not worked in the past.
Let’s get at least 25,000 signatures before the end of December to show our true feelings.
You never know what he might do, as a businessman he is a bit of a loose cannon, so let’s hope he goes off.
