Mike Ashley has caused friction with the Newcastle fanbase ever since he bought United, and his failure to agree a new contract with Rafa Benitez has brought about vivid anger from the St James’ Park faithful once more.

Supporters have been lambasting the Sports Direct owner since well before the club announced the Spaniard’s exit, and will likely continue to vent their frustrations well into the new campaign so long as he still owns our club.

Many have already spoken about potentially turning away from St James’ Park when the new term commences in August, as they look to show their displeasure in their droves by turning their back on the ground in protest of how Ashley is running the club.

St James’ Park welcomed close to a million supporters during the recently concluded Premier League season, with TransferMarkt noting 971,297 fans proceeded through the turnstiles for our 19 home fixtures – or at least bought tickets for the games – which was the seventh-most of any top-flight side.

Champions League Finalists Tottenham Hotspur and Europa League qualifiers Wolverhampton Wanderers both welcomed fewer numbers to their home games, in comparison, with Wolves selling out Molineux once for an average capacity crowd of 96.8% compared to our 97.7%.

Numbers of season tickets issued by Newcastle for the new season may be down, though, as fans have already been informing the club of their decision not to renew.

Loads of Magpies supporters have been reacting on social media lately on this matter, as well, as one fan shared that their father has opted against renewing his season ticket, having attended our home games since 1959, noting: “He’s finally broken.”

Here’s how these Newcastle fans reacted as another name opted against returning to St James’ Park…

  • As a Rangers Supporter of 60+ years, with experience of Mike Ashley trying to kill my beloved Club, I would extend my sympathy and support to all true Newcastle Fans stuck in this never ending nightmare.
    You need to get this parasite off your back as soon as possible, he has zero interest in you as a football entity and will, in time, ruin the club you all love.
    Really hope this works out for you.

  • THE TALKING HAS TO STOP–ACTION IS THE ONLY WAY AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN WITH THIS MAN -ASHLEY HE HAS USED AND ABUSED NEWCASTLE AND THE FANS FROM DAY ONE–THE ONLY THING HE UNDERSTANDS IS MONEY TO DEFEAT HIM TAKE IT OFF HIM — (TO TURF HIM OUT–DONT TURN UP)

  • It’s truly unbelievable that MA would do what he’s doing to a great football club. Boycott home games guys.
