Newcastle United are struggling for form this season as they sit joint-bottom of the Premier League without a single win from their opening 10 matches.

The pressure on Rafael Benitez has increased significantly and the squad is crying out for further investment in the January transfer window, although the track record of Mike Ashley does not look positive.

Ashley, still intent on selling the Magpies, has consistently refused to back Benitez in the transfer market and fans fear the situation will be the same in the New Year – and his latest business venture has pushed many over the ledge.

Sports Direct, owned by Ashley, have now purchased Evans Cycles to add to his portfolio and fans are furious as it is money being spent elsewhere and not on the club, which is in major need of a cash injection.

We have gathered some of the best reactions below.

  • The money spent on buying these companies comes from Sports Direct not Ashleys pocket.
    Ashley has never put money into the club for players,only to clear debt and two relegations.
