So Newcastle United have taken the opportunity to follow Rafa Benitez’s heartfelt message to Newcastle United fans with an advertisement for them to purchase the new home shirt.
This is what they have just tweeted out:
Our new home kit is in stores from today.
Form an orderly queue… ???? pic.twitter.com/twqQ7BqYFH

This tweet is an absolute disgrace. This club either doesn’t understand the dire predicament they are in or they don’t care.
It underlines what this club is all about under Mike Ashley and that is revenue. They don’t care about the fans one iota.
Whether they are oblivious or this advert was meant as a crass jab at Newcastle supporters, it highlights our current situation.
Newcastle United is run like an offshoot of Sports Direct. That is why Mike Ashley bought the club.
This is Mike Ashley’s statement and it is his only care in this world – Buy my stuff!
