Mike Ashley decided to sit with all the Newcastle supporters with his Toon top instead of not wearing his shirt and sit on the macKems director box. What a spirit! This is the most precious kind of support from the owner of Newcastle United, something that was never happened before in the Premier League history from any other Premierships club executive.
The Lads should not let him and around 3,000 Toon Army disappointed, this is the game that we should not get lost in. The fact is we never get lose on their home since 1979-1980 season, and Sam Allardyce should not making a new record break history for the opposite team, like he did last week. This time it would be very unacceptable.
Newcastle United chairman Chris Mort will be on the directors box alongside with mackems Chairman Niall Quinn.
Steve Wraith, editor of Players’ Inc, as quoted from Chronicle, said: “It is not very often you get a chairman wanting to wear a top at a match and a lot more cynical fans probably saw it as a publicity stunt when he wore it as Middlesbrough.”
“But this shows he has taken the club to his heart and wants to be one of the fans. I can see how it could pose problems if he went in the directors box.” Said Eddie Lazenby,69, of Whitley Bay, North Tyneside “But, when given the choice of wearing a suit in the director’s box or a Toon top in the away end, he has decided to stand with us and that’s fantastic.”
So no publicity in whatsoever for Mike Ashley. He wears it with pride, he knows that he is one of the Toon Army in every Newcastle's game, he is the supporters of the club not just the owner, so he will wearing his Toon top everytime he gets the chance to do it beside his busy time doing his business.
