Newcastle announced the U23s pre-season schedule on their official Twitter page, but the fans were quick to tell the club they are not interested.
The Magpies second-string will face Hibernian, Celtic Under-23s, and Rotherham in friendlies ahead of their 2019/20 Premier League 2 campaign.
However, as with almost all the posts the club share at the minute, it was met with a lot of anger.
It demonstrates just how annoyed the Newcastle faithful are right now that a club Tweet about the youth side is met by so many replies simply demanding Mike Ashley to leave.
Fan groups on social media have been calling for the Toon Army to boycott actual Premier League matches, so time will tell to see how many of the fan-base pay to watch the youngsters play.
Some fans have even been boasting on Twitter what they have spent their season ticket money on. One such fan purchased a hot-tub and patio furniture.
It would seem fans are against the idea of the club making any announcement other than to confirm the completion of the takeover. And they shared their reactions on Twitter.
One stated ‘no one cares’ whilst another felt they should ‘close down the club’ entirely.

What’s the point. No ambition, just close down the club.

Why do we have a youth set up? Just to farm players and sell them on for a profit? Sure as hell aint to progress the club
