Steve Howey made Newcastle fans proud on The Debate last night

Newcastle United fans had a tough old time last night. After being ripped apart by a classy Nottingham Forest side at the City Ground you’d have thought it would take a lot to turn their mood around. Steve Howey managed that, though, as the ex-Newcastle defender went on Sky Sports’ The Debate to call out Mike Ashley.

The 46-year-old former centre-back spent 11 years at the club and was a fan favourite through and through and for the fans, seeing him go on live television and criticise Mike Ashley and his cronies who have been talking about him and the way he runs the club was a breath of fresh air. The supporters have become all too familiar with Dennis Wise and Richard Keys talking about Ashley and to see someone on their side of the argument was refreshing.

Most fans have been anti-Ashley for years now and for their views to have finally been aired through a true club legend like Howey on TV. The fans believe they’re close to getting some sort of reaction out of Ashley and if they can get him to the end of his tether where he sells the club then it will be a job well done from the protesting fans who want to see transparency in how the historic football club is being run.

The Geordies loved seeing Howey on The Debate and will be keen to see more of the ex-Newcastle man in the future after his comments on Ashley.
