Newcastle United fans, Ian Doyle and his two boys, live in Ireland and booked their flights and hotel accommodation months ago for the Wolves game.

They don’t get to get over much to games because as we all know, raising a family is not cheap and flights and accommodation football tickets etc. are a luxury.

They bought their tickets as well, before realising that there was a boycott planned.

Anyway, Ian is still travelling over with his two boys BUT they are going to boycott the game.

The trio are instead going to watch the match in one of the pubs or clubs in Newcastle City centre and are then going to frame their (unused) tickets, knowing that they are helping to get AshleyOut.

I was really touched by this man’s story as at first he was not going to boycott and I talked him into it.

At that time I didn’t know he was travelling from Ireland with his two sons but I have to say I was blown away by his decision, dedication, self sacrifice and love for Newcastle United.

It could not have been easy telling the boys…

  • Kenny

    You have to admire the guy as he will watch 1000`s upon 1000`s of the
    Walking Dead bypass him & his boys on the way to St James.
    a noble gesture indeed to get rid of King Rat.

    • Leazes.

      Thats life….as I’ve said before all struggles have their detractors, the suffragettes were not backed by all women…..and there were probably peasants who refused to revolt as well…..

      • Steve Smith

        The suffragettes didn’t support suffrage for all women. The likes of Pankhurst were also miserable misandrists who guilt tripped young sons into throwing their lives away in cold muddy fields in another country.

        • Leazes.

          That’s a different argument…..but fairly true.

    • kingfisher

      “Walking Dead” love it Kenny !!

    • KennySamsung

      Harsh but true.. what if they’re late because of a broken down metro at Heworth and they’re running past them. Ok I’ll settle for “faster walking dead”

  • Themoscow72

    What a waste of time as there will be over fifty thousand at the match anyway not going to make a bit of difference. Tell him to take his tickets back up to 72 hours before kick off and he can get a full refund and spend the money in the pub.
    A selfish act by the way he should stay away but let his family make their own decision. Will two hundred people staying away make Ashley sell not a chance. Will two hundred people staying away help find us a buyer no.

  • Themoscow72

    Also Rafa and Lascelles have asked the fans to support the team on December 9th.
    I am currently recruiting to get people to go and so far have an extra nine but hope for many more.

    • Tweed Mag

      Here is a challenge for you. Ian Doyle has stated that he will boycott the Wolves game. He is a proud supporter and has decided to do his bit.
      So, will you use your real name and the names of your nine ‘friends’ in similar fashion? Are you brave enough? Let us all see who you are and what you are about. Man or mouse? .

      • Kenny

        Mouse

        • Tweed Mag

          Yes, I bet he loves cheese and squeaks a lot.
          His criticism of others is generally cowardly and disrespectful, let’s see what he is made of.

          • Themoscow72

            See you in the Three Bulls at ten Saturday.

          • Tweed Mag

            Who shall I ask for?

          • East Durham Mag

            Just look for someone sat alone with everyone around him comatose or pouring petrol over themselves ☠

          • Themoscow72

            See Alan the manager upstairs and ask for the lad from Monkseaton who will be at the bar anyway.

          • Tweed Mag

            Hiding again. Lost cause.

          • Themoscow72

            Never hidden in my life pal been arrested many times and banned from St James’s on a number of occasions so one thing I do not do is hide.

          • Tweed Mag

            I think that says it all.

          • Wezza

            Who do I ask for in the Monkseaton Arms?

          • killymag

            what for stealing sweets off kids

        • Themoscow72

          Pint on Saturday ten at the Three Bulls with anyone on here the lot of you if you want.

          • Tweed Mag

            More waffle. Put your money where your mouth is, Ian Doyle certainly has. Are you a proud fan like him or just someone who likes to contradict and argue? Last chance to see what you are made of.

          • Ashley-out

            Sunday after 11am i`m at the War Memorial with my dad
            then into the 3 Bulls

          • Realist

            He won’t entertain man, he can only manage keyboard talk. I told him which bar I was in Saturday just gone after Watford after he had sent me a random load of abuse, what more can ypu do than that?! he didn’t reply and he went all quiet until Monday morning when he sent me more abuse, he’s not a full shilling.

      • Themoscow72

        I used my real name on here till I got banned. Will meet anyone on here in the Three Bulls ten on Saturday. Many have promised to turn up in the past but so far only one Brian Standan.

        • Tweed Mag

          Predictable reply but not good enough. Squeak squeak.
          And your nine friends?

        • Wezza

          You’re doing it again.

          • Wor Lass

            Just turn up on Saturday then tell us about it. 1800 mile round trip`s a bit much for me but next time I`m in the Toon on a match day I`lll be there.

        • Pezza

          Monk’s I’m hopeful to get to Wolves but definitely at Everton away. I meet up with a lad who you may know, lives in the

          • Themoscow72

            Not only do I hope you get up to the Wolves game but try bring some of your family to as every ticket counts. Bought nine myself and hope to buy more.
            For the Everton game will be in a small pub four minutes from the ground called the Abbey from six. Not many fans know about it so does not get packed. From our turn styles go to the top of the road turn left and cross the road. After couple of minutes turn right and it’s in the housing estate on the corner of Walton Lane and Tetlow Street. Best to ask if you have not found it after 5 minutes. Be round ten of us in a group so not hard to spot.

          • Pezza

            Well, I hope to take my 84yo auntie to the Platty club.

      • Carverlier football

        He has apparently already been named in the comments of another story. Well, nickname and what I assume is real surname… Well if it were literally only the 10 of them that’s as good as a total boycott and good luck to them. Various straw polls suggest there will be less than 20k there which would be a good result – although I’m sure we all know polls can’t be trusted!

        • Themoscow72

          He was referring to a nickname. As for the attendance it will be 50,000 plus mark my words as do not know anyone who is boycotting and sold lots tickets last couple of weeks.

        • Leazes.

          Standen named him as Bill Gibbs the founder of the FairsClub….. so the nickname is Gibbo.

          • Cockneytrev

            Him who run some buses? Or a different bloke?

          • Leazes.

            Him…. Friend of the Carrick family….. Manchester link there

            One time scout (football not boy)

            Friend of Bob Moncur who we lambasted for his role with the Ashley regime….

            Gets money from the club to have yearly knees up with ex players.

            Him….

          • Cockneytrev

            I might have went on one of his busses years ago to oxford Utd in the cup, john Aldridge was playing, I think he scored,,

          • Cockneytrev

            Just read about him setting up the fairsclub,,,
            This is why he’s always up Ashleys jacksy,,
            He’s getting backed off the club.

          • Wor Lass

            Grumpy, I think.

          • Carverlier football

            A little odd that someone who founds a club revelling in faded long passed glories would keep promising improbable jam tomorrow…

      • Pezza

        Well, he may even buy you a pint. I hope to be at the Wolves game, happy to meet you & I hope to catch up with Monk’s this season.

        • Toon Arnie

          As long as you get a free ticket ? Your dedication knows no bounds !!

          • Pezza

            Ha, I will buy the ticket

  • kingfisher

    If the 50,000 had even 1% of this mans conviction, dedication and love of Newcastle United, Ashley would have been long gone.
    I was going to say that I hope they still enjoy the trip, however considering the lack of atmosphere and lack of support from the 50,000, they would have more fun if they spent 90 minutes at the West End crem. They will have a much, much better experience where ever they decide to watch the match than going to SJP. Well done him !!!

    • Ron

      Well said, still not going to the crem though.

    • Themoscow72

      Why would five hundred make a difference you 1% not a difference at all.
      Will a few people staying away help us find a buyer quite the opposite in fact. There will be an attendance of 50,000 against Wolves mark my words. The fans will not desert Rafa or the team.

      • kingfisher

        Back Rafa and the team Moscow, and you back Ashley. The 50,000 backing Rafa and the team hasn’t exactly inspired them to greatness has it?

        The lack of atmosphere in SJP, with 50,000 sitting on their hands and moaning about Ashley means that even if 49,000 stay away against Wolves, it wouldn’t affect the team one iota!

        • Pezza

          Can you not see how counter-prodictive that is

          • Ashley-out

            moron

          • Pezza

            Which bit did you have trouble with?

          • Toon Arnie

            Whereas mocking then doing nothing yourself is sure to drive through change at the club ?

          • Pezza

            Well,

          • kingfisher

            Sorry Pezza but no, I can’t see how it’s counter productive staying away and protesting against Ashley. On the other hand, I think doing nothing and keeping on giving Ashley their money and support is extremely counter productive !

          • Pezza

            To what end? what would you like as an outcome?

          • Pezza

            Well, ironically, we have seen how Bournemouth can operate on TV money and a low wage structure. What is it you want to achieve?

            Then ask yourself, how is this action achieving this aim?

          • kingfisher

            Spot on regarding Bournemouth Pezza.That’s the reason to protest, to get Ashley to sell and get a responsible owner who will invest tv money into the club. Ashley will bleed our club dry and then discard it when there is nothing more to gain !

          • Pezza

            Hmm, Bournemouth wage bill is £67m, they can spend £84m under Ffp rules, ours is £110m we can possibly go to £117m

            Hes not bled the club yet and he’s been here 11yr.

          • Geordiegiants

            Bobbi it’s even more counter productive to give fatty your money.

          • Pezza

            No, the money goes to the club.

            You want a new owner? How does a boycott or anything the Magpie group have proposed thus far a however that?

          • Geordiegiants

            Bobbi I can’t be bothered with your belligerence. The fatcunt is the club, it’s as simple as that. Dress it up however you like.

          • Pezza

            He’s the owner so yes, money spent benefits him but as he’s not exactly got a record of taking money out, then withdrawing support can only make the club poorer.

          • Geordiegiants

            So where is the money Bobbi? The wages are minuscule these days in to comparison previous years. In terms of income that’s is.

          • Pezza

            We paid wages ofof around £110m in 2017/18, £15m was the 10th place bonus. Tv was income £125m with other incomes being £50m . We pay another £35m in running the show so a surplus of £30m. FFP allows our wage bill to go to £117m so Ki, Muto, shar, Kennedy and Rondon take up that extra.

            Where is the money? In players bank accounts, PAYE /nl, our bank & debtors figure

            Haven’t got a clue what that means.

          • Pezza

            I want to know what the aim is? Is it really a change of ownership or just getting on telly to feel important?

            If my raisen d’etre was change of ownership I’d wonder what it is I’m doing that is going to achieve this aim.

            We are unable to post your comment because you have been banned by The Mag. Find out more.

          • Geordiegiants

            The aim is to be rid of the fatcunt at ANY cost. By ANY cost I mean doing what the inbreds done if it means he is gone. Our fans need to wrestle back some control of the club and the only way to do it is if we are not worth as much money.
            If our spectators really are true NUFC fans, it should make no difference what so ever which division or league we are in. We aren’t premier league supporters we are NUFC supporters.

          • Pezza

            Wow, wow,wow. That’s crazy. You want the club to destroy itself? To be like Sunderland?

            If we go down, why do think fans can fans wrestle back some control of the club if it’s broken? It’s a lot easier to finance a business making £30-40m a year compared to a huge money sponge.

          • Geordiegiants

            Wow wow wow. What’s so different at the inbreds? They still have their ground, training ground, badge and club. They just don’t have money and day trippers any more.
            So what your saying is you or our “fans” only want to follow us if we have money and day tripper to make our club look bigger?

          • Pezza

            I need to remove edeit

          • Geordiegiants

            No the premier league is only important to money people.
            The fans do have a certain degree of control. Their new owners consult with them, invite them to help out and generally involve them in everything they do.
            I couldn’t give a flying chuff about the money, being a controlled subservient minnow is what I don’t like.

          • Pezza

            I’ve edited the op, it was a bit all over the place.!!!!

      • Toon Arnie

        A published attendance of 50,000 yes but that won’t be the reality.

    • Phildene

      Well said kingfisher! It was like a morgue many years ago when we still went-horrible atmosphere!

  • Ron

    I said in another article that apathy rules. Clearly these supporters can and have made an honourable stand. I hope they enjoy the trip and that their actions help to remove the millstone around our once great and proud club.

    • Pezza

      How would their actions achieve this? Serious question.

      • Ron

        I think that their action in itself won’t but as a small part of a greater whole then they could. If everybody did a little …….

        • Pezza

          How, I can see how it will put off a change of ownership but it will achieve nothing

          • Ron

            Then we agree to disagree

  • Leazes.

    An admirable gesture…well done Sir!

    United will still be here (hopefully) after this tyrant leaves….

  • Carverlier football

    Admirable stand. Hopefully he’s got something special lined up to make it up to his boys!

  • tom

    Absolutely ridiculous. Already given the club money for the tickets, therefore boycotting is pointless. Only way to hit Ashley where is hurts is by not handing over money to the leech. Might as well give his lads a cracking day out and get behind the team at a time when they need it.

    • Leazes.

      No it isn’t…. hopefully season ticket holders will make a stand for truth and decency.

      • tom

        I don’t get it. If you’ve paid to go the match then go to the match. I’m fully behind a boycott, however, when Ashley already has your money then what’s the point? He won’t care in the slightest.

        • Ashley-out

          the point is an empty stadium in front of the tv cameras
          but being a troll you are as thick as mince

          • tom

            How am I a troll? Because my brain can comprehend more than one idea. Maybe you’re just too narrow minded and refuse to look at the situation from a different perspective. But aye, i’m the one who’s thick as mince.

          • Ashley-out

            you are a troll. blocked

          • tom

            you are a moron. blocked

        • Leazes.

          Its not about denying him money! its a show of dissent….

          • tom

            I get that, however, a man like Ashley won’t give a toss.

          • Leazes.

            Its not about hurting his feelings either.

          • Ashley-out

            that there is a troll

        • Phildene

          It’s on the tele so any empty seats will be seen and if there’s enough who are boycotting , like this guy and his family, then it will make one heck of a difference! It’s more of a sacrifice to this great guy and his family due to his payment. At least he’s got the guts to boycott!!

        • Toon Arnie

          Given that about 75% of the crowd is Season Ticket holders how would a meaningful boycott ever take place using that criteria ?

          • tom

            Exactly, there isn’t such thing

          • Kenny

            Are you the new Troll, welcome to the Mag

          • tom

            Amazing how people can’t get their head around the fact that people have a different opinion? Must be a troll if they don’t agree. Comical.

          • Kenny

            you stick out a mile you brain dead idiot. Jesus wept
            cretin, oh & you are blocked

          • tom

            Woah, easy tiger. Is it not nice having a bit of diversity? If my opinion winds you up then that’s your problem

          • Realist

            Welcome to the mag. If your opinion is different your branded a troll and hurled abuse especially by Kenny. The man is a bottler all he can manage is the keyboard. Offered him a drink Saturday just gone after the match after he had messaged me a load of abuse out of the blue, told him what bar a was in and to come along he then went all quiet and shy, bless him!

          • Wezza

            Signing onto guest so all can see eh?
            Trolls Out!

          • Realist

            What’s your problem?

      • kingfisher

        Totally agree Leazes !!

    • KennySamsung

      I agree if it was just about the money but fans standing together is a very powerful statement. Without people he is nothing, I’m torn between wanting this man out and supporting my team. This is the position he has put most people in.

      • Ashley-out

        that there is a troll

      • Toon Arnie

        Same here. I still think the West Ham 11th minute idea is a better one and more likely to succeed.

        • Leazes.

          Just boycott…don’t miss this opportunity to sen out a strong message.

    • Wor Lass

      So, you`re advocating that anyone who`s already paid should still go – season ticket holders have paid. It`s not going to be much of a boycott if it`s just the fans who can buy tickets week on week. This guy`s grasped the concept – you haven`t.

      • tom

        Already said I don’t get it. An idea like going in later seems more logical, best of both worlds.

        • Leazes.

          Is your name Kevin?

        • Wor Lass

          I think they`ve asked for that for another match.

  • KennySamsung

    I can just see it now 50,000 trying to get into the Strawberry to watch the match, the puddles of Guiness like the flowing waters at Corbridge outside the Gallowgate and two Irish people wanting to know how to get to the Irish club before kick off, Ando on the radio talking jibberish and the roar goes up when Newcadtle score a deflected goal in the 5th minute of injury time .. aahh TO BE SURE!!

  • Peaky

    The Ronnie is getting worse…..just clicked on a photo of Venison & Keegan hoping to see a liitle bit of nostalgia from the 90’s….but no…lo & behold up pops Uncle Fester Ryder still waffling on about a ‘hard fought victory” v Watford…..I’m now beyond despairing….

    • Ashley-out

      gave up with the chronicle months ago.

    Boycott the lot, queue inspector gadget to tell me to shut up

  • Pezza

    I’ll take one of your tickets off you.

    • Ashley-out

      thought you were a season ticket holder, you want one for one of your
      Manchester mates.

      • Pezza

        No, I go to a few away games and about 3 homes a season when I visit family or vice-versa.

    • Toon Arnie

      So you haven’t bought one yet ? Is that your own contribution to the protest, you’ll only go if it’s for free !

      • Kenny

        He’s not only a Troll, he’s also a Moron
        🤡🤡🤡🤡

        • Leazes.

          He also pointed out Monkseatons real name….so which one is that then?

          • Kenny

            It’s all getting rather confusing,
            I doubt it’s Monks real name unless he is Monk, time for a paracetamol.

          • Leazes.

            Standen says it is…. and it fits…. someone who gets money for the fairs club from Charnley….. the monkseaton bit I don’t get that at all….. Both have been name dropping like a rain shower.

          • Wezza

            What is his real name? If I’d known that in the Monkseaton Arms I’d have shouted it out. He wasn’t there though!

          • Leazes.

            Well Standen says its Bill Gibbs now that would explain a lot Gibbs scouted for Whitley Bay I think.

          • Wezza

            Says he is from Wallsend, founder of the fairs club.

          • Superdooperhooper

            Something doesn’t add up . Monkseaton said he’s in his fifties. A chronicle article on bill gibbs from 3 years ago puts him at 64 and living in Wallsend. Maybe Monkseaton was lying about his age and location but I can’t think why

          • Leazes.

            Something wrong somewhere Bill Gibbs is about 68

          • Superdooperhooper

            I was quoting his age from the interview so yes he would be 67 or 68 now

          • Brian Standen

            For the record Monk Mag is about 55/ 56 I think ! If that helps anyone!

          • Brian Standen

            Bill Gibbs is in his 60s and from wallsend – like I say I worked with Bill for over 20 years! Decent bloke as well , was also a footie scout for Brighton and West Ham

          • Superdooperhooper

            Just trying to get to the bottom of the Monkseaton mystery ! You don’t have to name names but is he just an over zealous fan or is he on the club’s ashley’s or bishop’s payroll in some capacity or other?

          • Squintytoonarmy

            From what I can follow the Monk is defo a fan though has some queer viewpoints. He i think is ex bender squad so late 50s would fit

          • Brian Standen

            He is mad as a box of frogs, NUFC his his life , has been as long as I known him!
            Daft thing is he wants same as us all but does detest protests.
            Is he a fan of Ashley, I don’t think so but won’t have a word said against the club!
            Def not employed by the club at all!
            And on the trips I been on with him he is def one of the more excitable fans!
            Actually very likeable when you get to know him as well!
            Without divulging his name OR the nickname he gained years ago when he used to run buses from the coast I can’t say more!
            But those trips were fun and I’m going to tell the tale about one shortly!

            Watch this space

          • Superdooperhooper

            He’s a fruitcake and needs to be sectioned immediately
            He told me he’s a top accountant so how’s he got time to post on here weekdays?

          • Brian Standen

            Don’t bring into your fresh argument !
            The Fairs Cup club chairman is Bill Gibbs, I worked with him for 20 years!

          • Leazes.

            You saying it isn’t him now?

          • Wezza

            They’re both having a good old laugh looking at us trying to work out if he actually is a real person or a Jezza hating troll. He said yesterday that Fleckman and Monkseaton got banned – how would he know that? He is trolling all of us.

          • Pezza

            Read things properly, it will stop you making an idiot if yourself.

          Talk of boycott and the trolls come out of their bins. Pathetic.
          ASHLEY OUT!

      • Pezza

        No, I’ll pay, just cutting the lad’s losses

  • Cockneytrev

    Fair play to the bloke,,
    Should start a donation to give him his money back,,,

    • Kenny

      I`ll get them a drink, no problem

      • Cockneytrev

        Definitely,,,

  • Kenny

    Great isn’t it, we spawn a win and the Trolls come out of their bins in hordes
    advocating back the team etc etc. sad people
    🤡

  • Leazes.

    There’s an interview with Andy Cole in Newcastle after his induction on MOTD 10pm.

    • KennySamsung

      I’ll tune in to watch him and remanice

  • Kev-82

    Gateshead are at home that weekend, I hope all the boycotters head over and give them some support. Would make a big statement having 10,000 support there showing Ashley people are willing to go elsewhere.

    • Leazes.

      Most newcastle fans come from your side of the river…… try the northern echo.

      • Kenny

        😂😁😂😁

    • Davey drape

      Tremendous and agree fully

  • Mrkgw

    I respect those that choose to protest in an acceptable manner. I will nevertheless be attending the game having booked trains and hotel rooms in advance. I’m not wasting them all on account of the actions of Ashley. Moreover, the protest was announced after I had booked. In my opinion, the team need support during games and we are desperate for points. Buoycott this one and we might as well forfeit the game.

    • Realist

      You don’t need to explain yourself to anyone mate. Don’t listen to numptys like wezza leazes and co they are a bunch of control freaks. Rafa and the players need the fans through the good and bad. If people can’t support the club through the bad times then don’t support them through the good/better times.

      • Toon Arnie

        I think they should follow your example and boycott almost every game.

        • Kenny

          It’s another vermin troll, hasn’t got the brains he was born with

          • Leazes.

            Thats why he’s using a guest log in

          • Realist

            No leazes basically just because I haven’t got a disqus account never wanted one and never will have.

          • Leazes.

            No

          • Wezza

            And that name will be banned soon.

          • Realist

            😂Your fighting a losing battle, only one winner here. Anyone who has a different opinion you want banned because your weak as pisch.

          • Wezza

            All trolls are ignored.

          • Realist

            This from the bloke who could barely manage anything bar “fk off troll c unt or you used to use nonce alot that was a favourite of yours when you first started posting. Brains of Britain ye Kenny.

          • Leazes.

            Yes he comes on the board late to put a ‘final word’ comment

        • Realist

          Season ticket holder 17 year and healthy amount of loyalty points but aye whatever you say.

          • Geordiegiants

            So that’s around £8000 you have personally given the fatcunt. Well done, enjoy those loyalty points.

          • Realist

            I don’t think about how much I’ve spent over the years mate, anything to do with nufc is money well spent in my book.

          • Geordiegiants

            Yeah that’s the way, put your hands over your eyes and pretend it’s going to the club. Your giving every penny to the fatcunt.

          • Realist

            What do you want is to do then mate eh? Not gan? Cut me own nose off to spite me own face. Ashley might be round for years to come or he may be gone in the near future, the latter I hope, but I will always go along with many others. I’m giving the club money for a season tickets yes but it’s peanuts to them, all the away ticket money nufc dosent get a penny of that goes to other club. All the food and drink outlets in st james are out sourced. I don’t pretend nothing mate that’s why I post with the name. I’m aware of everything in awake unlike 90 percent of the rest of the population- dumbed down. Thats not for a football forum though.

          • Geordiegiants

            Yes make a sacrifice you coward just think where we would be if Churchill took your attitude. There is not one single business in this world that could keep going without its customers, not one. Don’t sit thinking someone else will sort it out. The food and drink outlets have to pay him man. They don’t get it for nowt, wake up man it’s more economical to outsource or he would do that himself that’s why they charge a fiver a pie and stuff. Away tickets are a different score all together, he gets a handling fee which isn’t a lot.

          • Realist

            Look mate I respect your views but let’s agree to disagree. You don’t know me personally and one thing I’m not is a coward so steady on that one. Good luck with whatever your trying to achieve.

          • Geordiegiants

            Stand up and be counted man. Do something, don’t just sit thinking someone else will or it will go away. It won’t!!

      • Leazes.

        On the contrary they’ll probably perform better with a smaller crowd…. I’ll help them!

    • Kenny

      If you booked up, hotels etc prior to the boycott fair enough attend the game, as far as the team needing support there`s been 50,000 at every game and that hasn`t went well at all, has it.

    • Leazes.

      You are going to have your work cut out then!

      Pretty poor show old bean….

    • tom

      A lot of time for this comment

  • Mxpx

    I think this game is a great start but we need to boycott all home games and really this should have happened when season tickets were up for sale as 40k seats are already paid for I believe the financial implications of a serious boycott are what is required

  • Albert Stubbins

    I’m not going. My son doesn’t believe me but its time to make a statement. Its a wrench but hopefully it will be a cathartic experience. I hate Ashley for making me do this but enough is enough.

    • Themoscow72

      A complete waste of time. Will guarantee the attendance will be over fifty thousand so it will be a massive victory for Ashley. Will you staying away make Ashley sell no. More important will it help find a buyer no.
      Think you are coming to the end of your days as a supporter If you miss Wolves as after that be easy for you.

      • Albert Stubbins

        I don’t see it that way. Everyone has the right to protest and this is how many choose to do it. Its not intended to make Ashley sell any quicker or find a buyer- its to let him know that we as a fanbase are prepared to sacrifice one of the things many of us love to demonstrate our dissatisfaction with him. The day I end my support for Newcastle United Football Club is the day I die.

        • Themoscow72

          In that case think you should go to the match like Rafa and Lascelles want. A win against Wolves could keep us up. Cannot see more than a couple of hundred protesting.
          Tickets have been selling well the last week even sold 244 corporate tickets at £57.00 pounds a pop and 129 for the East Stand at £44.00 each that’s nearly £20k in those two stands alone.

          • Wezza

            You are trolling again!

          • TheFatController

            Rafa would want us there, he’s paid by the club, so he would say that.

            Once he’s also boycotted Ashley next May and is free to speak his mind, he’d say ‘I object to Ashley as owner so I of course support any fans that do. I refused a contract, if they refuse to watch I would be contradicting myself by saying they shouldn’t’

            Rafa is Ashley’s biggest hater. He’s got morals and balls, unlike you Moscow Mugpie. You’re a fraud.

          • Geordiegiants

            Morals are the most important thing in life. Anyone giving money to the fatcunt is a subservient follower.

        • Geordiegiants

          Same here. Blind loyalty is pathetic. It’s a brand now it’s not what it was anyway. I will always be a Newcastle united follower no matter how old I am, it never goes away. Keep giving someone money that only wants money and he is never going away either.

    • Geordiegiants

      Well done it hurts and you will get restless, but the end goal will be worth it. We can start from nothing and start again.
