Newcastle: Fans fume over merchandise

Image for Newcastle: Fans fume over merchandise

A lot of Newcastle United fans are not happy that their official online club store were seemingly selling Manchester United shorts.

Is it a surprise that Ashley has done this?





Football writer Ketch revealed this on Twitter, and it has caused outrage amongst many Toon fans.

What do we think?

This is Mike Ashley using Newcastle as a vehicle to sell stuff that he also sells in Sports Direct.

A pair of Manchester United shorts should not be on Newcastle’s official website, and the reaction is understandable from a lot of Magpies fans.

The Toon are a big club with a great history and a proud fanbase, and they are right to be annoyed with Ashley for attempting to sell Manchester United merchandise on their club’s website.

Indeed, it does not appear as though the club have noticed as they are still being listed here at the time of writing (9th January 2020) and it is not the first time the club’s merchandise has come under fierce criticism in recent times.

This follows another farce with a 2020 desk calendar sold by Newcastle as official merchandise that has pictures of Ayoze Perez, Salomon Rondon, and Kenedy in it.

All of whom are no longer at the club and therefore, should not be in a calendar for 2020.
