With Newcastle United skipper Jamaal Lascelles recommitting to a new long-term contract last week – it was effectively fresh terms and a 12-month extension through until the summer of 2024 – the 24-year-old sparked some controversy in his choice of words about owner Mike Ashley.

It had the expected reaction amongst some in the fanbase and they weren’t slow to come forward on social media to give their responses given life at St James’ Park under his ownership.

Former striker Shola Ameobi attempted to be fair to all sides as he appeared on Sky Sports’ Goals On Sunday programme.

Whilst I can see what he was trying to say, and yes there is a distinction to be drawn between the man and the businessman as he says – just as there are those who think the public and private Mike Ashley might be worlds apart, others will say they are still the same man ultimately and does anyone change that much?
