Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to express their shock at what owner Mike Ashley has told The Times today that there is no money left in the bank at Newcastle and that he now regrets having bought Newcastle and gone into football in the first place.
We should stress that Newcastle will be getting about £80M from the Premier League in May whether we are relegated or not.
