Newcastle fans take to Twitter to slam Matt Ritchie’s spending comments

Newcastle fans take to Twitter to slam Matt Ritchie’s spending comments

It’s bad enough for Newcastle fans that Mike Ashley refuses to pull his wallet out unless he absolutely has to, and the last thing they need is their own players coming out and rubbishing the idea of spending money. However, that’s what Matt Ritchie has done as he’s claimed, via The Chronicle, that money doesn’t buy success.

The Scottish winger is a pure workhorse and has proven to be a very important player for the Magpies this season, however, the Geordies will be desperate for his comments not to become echoed amongst the rest of the squad. They all want to see more changes over the summer in the squad as they need an injection of quality, which is only attainable via spending, something Mike Ashley simply doesn’t do.

Miguel Almiron was a big money signing and a good one at that, but now the Geordies just need to add to it with a couple more big names coming into the squad. However, the chances of that happening now after recently breaking the transfer record in January are slim, seeing as before Almiron it was Michael Owen who held the honour of being the club’s record transfer from way back in 2005.

The Magpies are desperate for money to be splashed this summer and will be keen for Ritchie’s comments to die down quickly before Mike Ashley gets any ideas.
