1 week ago

Mike Ashley and Steve Bruce have found themselves on the receiving end of some stunning feedback from Newcastle United fans.

The fans concerned, surveyed by the 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, such as Steve Bruce

The introduction to the NUST survey and then some key findings…

‘Earlier this summer we launched the first Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST) annual survey, with 2,406 responses of which 1,855 were from current NUST members.

The survey ran from 25th July to 6th August with results presented to the newly elected Board on August 9th.

As a result of growing concerns over the performances on the pitch since the start of the 2021-22 season, we ran a quick pulse survey on Sunday 3rd October to seek the opinion of its membership on the current situation at Newcastle United to supplement the results from the main survey.

This evidence helps the Board of the trust do our work – and provide an evidence based option on the matters that we campaign for on behalf of our members. We also share the results of this survey of with the club – as we seek to influence the club on the key topics set out in the survey.

There were a number of key takeaways from the survey in relation to the demographic of those responding with just 8% under the age of 30, highlighting the Trust needs to grow its engagement and membership amongst our younger fans – the future generations of Newcastle United fans.’
