Mike Ashley slaughtered on running of Newcastle United in new NUST survey report

10 months ago

Mike Ashley has found himself on the receiving end of some stunning feedback from Newcastle United fans.

The fans concerned are members of the 14,000+ strong Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST).

They have been surveyed by NUST regarding what they currently think about the way the club is being run by Mike Ashley and other pertinent issues.

With classic timing, this report slaughtering the running of Newcastle United, comes out on the same afternoon that Mike Ashley and his people have claimed that those criticising Steve Bruce (and basically, the running of the club) are only a very small ‘vocal minority’ trying to stir up trouble, whilst supposedly the vast majority of genuine Newcastle fans think that Bruce (and Ashley…) is doing a great job.

Some of the highlights below…

Only 9.3% of Newcastle fans in the survey think NUFC is a well run football club, whilst only 0.9% think Newcastle United communicates well with supporters.

Whilst only 3.9% believe think Steve Bruce and his squad are ‘making strides in taking Newcastle to the next level?’
