Has life really been that bad for Newcastle United fans under Mike Ashley?

Well, I often see mischievous / clueless journalists and fans of other clubs, claiming we are actually LUCKY to have him.

These sad people coming out with some pretty strange facts (lies!) and twisted versions of reality to ‘prove’ their point.

This weekend is number 1,000 when it comes to Premier League games for Newcastle United, so what has been the case in the previous 999 when you split them between the first 14 NUFC PL seasons and then the 13 seasons (and counting) since the darkness descended and the tat billionaire came into our lives.

These are the full season by season facts from pre and post the arrival of Mike Ashley and then some overall comparisons follow…
