Mike Ashley at the game
Here are some comments from the Newcastle fans on Ashley’s presence.
Ashley finally bothered to show up for a #nufc game as a formality after the criticism he’s faced for not going to games. It’s not like he started givin a shit. Just a tacky PR exercise turning up wit his 2018 version of Dennis Wise/Jimenez. Even Rafa didn’t giv it any importance

Got to say our fans sounded tremendous today at Selhurst Park. I heard plenty of loud and clear anti Ashley songs on my stream #NUFC

Didn’t even clock Ashley was there until checking twitter after the game. Thought we were just calling him a fat cockney bastard business as usual #NUFC

This is interesting.
Rafa did not talk with Mike Ashley directly after the game as he was conducting his post-game media duties #nufc

There must have been a reason Ashley was there.. it’s not coincidence, he never does anything without a purpose #nufc

Correction. The fact that #nufc are now 11pts behind and a 9 goal difference worse than *Watford* show how much we have been run into the ground by Ashley over the years.

Dave – it’s not quite as bad as you describe.
Sounds like another pathetic effort by #NUFC today…what a lifeless club we’ve become. Ashley literally picking the final bones from our carcass. Escaping the drop will be some feat.

I’m not saying we should be challenging for champions league either. But we should be challenging for top ten. But we will never challenge while we have mike Ashley as our owner. ASHLEY OUT. #NUFC #IfRafaGoesWeGo

Please Mike Ashley just sell the club because this cannot continue,it’s an absolute disgrace #NUFC

What do people expect… We are Sports Direct United a club starved of investment for over 10 years. Perhaps if the fu**ing owner got in the players Rafa wanted we might have more attacking options. This is what we get thank to Ashley you should realise this by now. #Nufc
