Newcastle United fans have responded in droves and in a creative fashion to the news of Sports Direct’s tax bill of over £600m.
There is sure to be some other revelations that leak out as financial gurus go through the recently released annual results. Monday morning will also be a bad day for Sports Direct shares.
While some Newcastle fans are worried about how this will affect the running of NUFC, many have just responded with some comedic jabs at the owner.
Here are some of the funnier ones that have been tweeted.

Btw #NUFC fans – If Ashley is found guilty of tax evasion charges, he would fall foul of the current directors and owners test (as I understand it). Meaning he would have to sell the club.

Anyone thinking this had come as a surprise to Ashley is mistaken.
The timing may have thrown him this morning but he will have been well aware that it was in the offing and will have plans in place.
These may or may not include selling nufc.
I hope to god it’s the former.

It will never happen. Even if it did it would take too long. We need rid of this parasite now. We need to get nasty. Any means of getting rid of him are legitimate as far as I am concerned. I think linking up with the guys in Glasgow could open up avenues of attack.
