Steve Bruce new contract to be announced before or after 2021/22 Newcastle United season tickets go on sale?

The race is now on for 2021/22 Newcastle United season tickets.

Will Steve Bruce’s new extended (eight year?) contract be announced, before or after, next season’s season tickets go on sale.

Or even have any details / information released about them?

With the new season only five weeks away now, absolutely nothing has been said by the club about 2021/22 Newcastle United season tickets.

Nothing new of course, Mike Ashley and his minions pretty much every time make sure that Newcastle fans are the last to know anything.

If you want to live in parochial ignorance and think that with all the issues and fallout from the virus impact, that no Premier League clubs are putting season tickets on sale, or at least telling fans when it will be…

Please look away now.

A quick look around the official online presences of the various Premier League clubs shows a very different picture to what is (NOT!) happening at Newcastle United.

I couldn’t find a single other Premier League club that hasn’t already put season tickets on sale (the standard thing to deal with potential virus impact, to explain how then fans would be refunded if the worst happened), never mind not even bothered to communicate with their fans…

The likes of Wolves and Leeds operating waiting lists for their season tickets, can you remember that at Newcastle United…?

This is the case below at a sample of other Premier League clubs and for the vast majority, details of 2021/22 season tickets have been in place for some considerable time, indeed you are talking from back in May or earlier for most…

Brighton 2021/22 season tickets HERE

Crystal Palace 2021/22 season tickets HERE

Burnley 2021/22 season tickets HERE

Everton 2021/22 season tickets HERE

Leicester 2021/22 season tickets HERE

Leeds 2021/22 season tickets (waiting list) HERE

Wolves 2021/22 season tickets (waiting list) HERE

Knowing Mike Ashley, he will probably announce a new eight year contract for Steve Bruce and then next day send out 2021/22 Newcastle United season tickets renewals with Brucey’s face and quotes plastered all over it / them, with a 25% increase in price for season tickets.

We shouldn’t be surprised of course, considering just how shameful the behaviour of Mike Ashley and Newcastle United has been right throughout these tough covid times. Repeatedly refusing to communicate with supporters and always the last Premier League club to refund fans for single tickets and season tickets that couldn’t be used.

We are now 33 days into the transfer window and clearly there is no intention to properly strengthen this Newcastle team that desperately needs more goals and creativity, not to mention only four PL clubs conceded more goals than NUFC last season.

Whether a takeover will or won’t happen, that has to be put totally to one side when it comes to planning for the 2021/22 season, they are two separate though obviously connected things. Mike Ashley has to properly prepare the club for the upcoming season, regardless of his dream of walking away with his pockets bulging and not caring one bit about the mess that he will leave behind.
