Newcastle United are a huge club. The Magpies are one of the most famous clubs in England, and whilst it may be 64 years since they last won a trophy, the 1955 FA Cup, they’ve always been a big name in English football. However, a lot of fans are now preparing to cancel their season ticket’s to spite their tyrant owner, Mike Ashley.
Remember, the deadline to cancel season tickets which automatically renew for next season is the 31st January #NUFC

Newcastle fans have been desperate to step up in their efforts to rid their club of the parasite that is Ashley for years now. In his time at the club, he’s used St James Park for free advertising for Sports Direct, taken money from the club for his own pocket and failed to invest back into the club or the city to the point that the Magpies have already suffered two relegations under his toxic ownership.
There are loyal fans that have grown up living and breathing Newcastle United, yet they’re on the verge of giving up with their famous club because of Ashley. If enough fans were to make the bold move to cancel their season tickets then it would surely damage Ashley’s pockets enough to make him consider his ownership, and that will be exactly what they’ll be hoping he does, as the future of the club will always be up in the air as long as he owns it.
You can read the Geordies’ thoughts on cancelling their season tickets here:
I have been going for 49 years…had a season ticket for about 30 years and been to at least one game every season since the age of 10 even though spent only 8 years of my adult life in NE…gutted to give up but it looks like time

Get yourselves up to watch the mighty Blyth Spartans 12 matches unbeaten and only £215 for a full season ticket. No prima donas and no negative football on show here. Next home game on Saturday.

So apt that it coincides with transfer deadline day , cancel early do Ashley knows he’s not getting your money and might react by spending

Ashley looking proverbial gift horse in the mouth by not making the most of the best manager we're ever likely to have = last straw. I make sacrifices to have an ST @NUFC and travel from up from York and away when poss. Club don't meet half way. Won't have the piss taken any more

I sincerely hope the majority do cancel if nothing changes.

My advice would be for everyone to cancel. You’ll have 3 months to resign up if they decide to actually spend some money in january

The Magpies hate the idea of giving up their season tickets, yet they’ll do anything if it means getting rid of Ashley.
