Combined with the lack of take-up for the away-game at Hibs as a pre-season friendly and the widely publicised loss of over 12K season-tickets since last season, it now seems as though even the hardcore travelling support is not immune from the impact of Ashley’s gross mismanagement and suffocation of hope at United.

It will remain to be seen whether newly appointed teary-eyed, Head Coach singing Home Newcastle and a bit of shuffling of the playing resources around over what remains of the transfer window will stem the tide of people packing in following the club under the ownership of Ashley.
