Newcastle fans on Twitter have have zero faith in Ashley to act on latest promises

As you’re probably aware, Mike Ashley took Rafa Benitez and the Newcastle first team squad out for a pizza on Wednesday night in an attempt to build bridges with those at the club. Then yesterday in The Daily Mail, a story surfaced claiming that Mike Ashley had promised to take the squad on holiday if they avoid the drop and provide funds for Rafa Benitez in the January window.

The three-hour meeting between Benitez, Ashley and the Newcastle squad seems to have been a productive one. Ashley has vowed that he won’t be selling the club this season, that he will make resources available for Benitez in the January window and that he will take the entire Newcastle squad on holiday if they are able to avoid relegation at the end of the season, something that is frankly unheard of from Ashley.

Despite these promises, The Magpies aren’t buying it and have a feeling of deja vu surrounding the words. It seems all too familiar that Ashley is promising that funds will be made available and that things will get better. The summer just gone saw Ashley promise Benitez ‘every penny the club generates’ and that seemed to go out of the window pretty quickly when the opportunity to sign players came about, leaving the Geordies far from optimistic about the upcoming January window despite Ashley’s words.

The fans are refusing to budge in their protests of Ashley and won’t believe any of his words about funds being made available until they’ve seen it.
