Many Newcastle United fans have reacted to former skipper Mick Martin’s comments on Mike Ashley after he told The Chronicle that the owner needs to be criticised for his silence.
As per ChronicleLive, Martin insists that the members of the Toon faithful need to be updated by the CEO of Sports Direct over what is going on, whether that would come from Ashley himself or Lee Charnley.
He highlighted the fact that the season ticket holders are paying their money to go and watch the Tyneside club play at St. James’ park, so they need to know what they are getting for their money and what the Magpies’ ambition is.
The 68-year old also claimed that he has never been Ashley’s biggest fan, but admits that he was positive about the owner helping Steve Bruce along when he got the job.
However, the ex-Irish international did say that the time is right to sell NUFC and thinks that the reported figure to buy the club is good investment.
He concluded by saying that the supporters need to be informed, and he wants excitement to be brought back again.
These fans reacted to Martin’s comments on Twitter:
Yes now!! This is getting ridiculous

Why break the habit of a lifetime? We have been kept in the dark constantly throughout his miserable tenure why would he change now?
