It is Newcastle United v Manchester United on Wednesday night.

Rafa Benitez’ team facing a tough start in the new year, against a team now once again looking to attack after the departure of Jose Mourinho.

Embarrassingly for Mike Ashley, not a single match has sold out at home so far this season.

The actions of the  NUFC owner continuing to drive away people from the club they love.

In the past this would have been a guaranteed early sell-out but the club have put out a message on their official Twitter account saying that with 48 hours to go, there are still tickets on sale for Wednesday.

We all know the contempt Mike Ashley has for the club he owns and the people who follow it, this being summed up by a very embarrassing latest example.

It is embarrassing enough having no proper board at NUFC and no proper off the pitch professional management business team, laughably Lee Charnley the only named Director AND Executive.

However, it looks as though he isn’t the only clown employed by Mike Ashley.

This is the message put out on the official club Twitter page and then some of the disbelieving responses…

newcastle united v manchester united


‘Do yourselves a favour and change this immediately, it’s bad enough Sky doing it but to disrespect our own club’s name and fans like this is completely unacceptable.

Newcastle UNITED Will Never Be Defeated.’


‘Newcastle UNITED.’

Andy Milne:

‘It’s Newcastle United!! It’s even written as your twitter name if you get stuck.’





‘Newcastle. United.’

Joe MacCabe;

Graham Milton:

‘It’s Newcastle United ffs.’

Raj Bithal:

‘Absolute clowns at all levels of the club administration.’

James Page:

‘We’re Newcastle United not just “Newcastle” get it right man our twitter name even has it right!!!’

Eric Saddler:

‘Try getting our name right & people might know who’s playing , who ever sanctioned this should be marched out the club .utter clown.’


‘Do you not know the name of the club? Look at your own Twitter name if you need help.

Newcastle UNITED vs Manchester United.’


‘The most mismanaged football club in the United Kingdom. From top to bottom.

From the Chairman to the managing director, to the person who runs the twitter page, to the box office, to the SLO, to the stadium manager.’

    It’s a small thing but EXACTLY the kind of things that wind up the fans. Anyone putting official club information out there should know this really.

  • Steven05

    I’ve worked out what it is, but can’t see it mentioned in the article (and I don’t use Twitter)

  • JohnCornwell’sHair

    I take it they missed United out of the tweet, not that we’d know from the article above. I know it’s the holidays but is anyone proof reading?

    • Jezza

      Glad I’m not the only one who couldn’t make sense of the article.

      • Peaky

        Already looking forward to the match against “And Hove Albion” in the new year…..

  • Realist

    The Mag has also done it. look above.

  • Dillon Tovak

    Should be grateful that this is the thing winding them up, there are people out there with real problems.

  • Philippines

    “Shameful, slams, slaughters, pathetic…… etc” Can’t we get something in there about sex change vicars and drug mercy dashes? Or the writers could possibly follow the Daily Mail and write of ‘ample cleavages’, ‘tiny bikinis’ and so on.

    • Peaky

      Are you anywhere near that bad weather ???

      • Philippines

        No we are a long way North but it is raining a bit.

    Oh ffs! A storm in a teacup. I think it’s hardly likely to be Newcastle red star or Newcastle benfield playing against man United is it?

  • GToon

    I didn’t spot it at first. I thought they’d printed the score in advance.
