Plenty of Newcastle United fans are raging at Mike Ashley after news emerged from the NUFC Supporters Trust (NUST) on their Twitter page that following further discussions with the Tyneside club, they are yet to confirm any plans to refund ticket money.
As per NUST, supporters are entitled to a refund for their ticket money if they want to, following an announcement that the remaining games of the 2019/2020 season will be played behind closed doors.
Do you think ticket money should be refunded despite the season resuming?
Indeed, this has caused some members of the Toon faithful to voice their rage on the platform, with plenty directing their anger towards Ashley.
The CEO of Sports Direct still remains the owner in the North East despite the prospective takeover of the Saudi-led consortium looming large over him and his football team.
However, being the current owner in this moment in time, it seems as if some NUFC supporters have been blaming Ashley for their lack of refunded ticket money. This should come as little surprise, given the strained relationship between the owner and the supporters.
These Magpies gave their thoughts on the 55-year old on Twitter after reading the news:

Mike Ashley will leave it until the very last second before he reacts. He’s leaving it to be the new owners problem
