Newcastle fans on Twitter call for a boycott to increase pressure on Mike Ashley

Newcastle United fans have been doing everything in their power this season to make life as the Newcastle owner hell on earth for Mike Ashley. The fans have been doing everything they can to protest against the Sports Directs owner and now they could be set to boycott a number of games to try and hurt Ashley’s pockets.

The Magpies have had to suffer for a long time under Ashley and after last season finished so well it looked like things were finally looking up for the historic old football club. The fans were delighted at least season’s 10th placed finish and when the campaign ended Mike Ashley promised that he would give Rafa Benitez “every penny the club generates”, however, that seems far from true given how their summer went.

This season is now seeing the impacts of the summer. Benitez was not backed in the market and had to wheel and deal to get his third and fourth choice options. There are some gems in there but overall it’s disappointment for the fans. The season could hardly have started worse with five losses and a draw from their six games in the Premier League and Carabao Cup and now the fans are considering going to the extreme measure of boycotting St James Park.

The Geordies are fully ready to boycott future home games and believe they can force Ashley out if they all work together to organise it.
