A lot of Newcastle United fans have commented on a post from Mark Douglas – after the Evening Chronicle reporter suggested that Newcastle should follow Brighton and Hove Albion’s plan to postpone direct debit payments for next season.

Brighton have taken this step, and Douglas believes that Newcastle should do the same; however, as of 25th March, the Toon had continued to take money from fans for next year.

Who is Newcastle's top goalscorer in the league?

This has not surprised these Newcastle fans who feel that Douglas is having a laugh if he thinks Mike Ashley will help in this way.

What do we think?

The Premier League is currently suspended until at least 30th April because of the viral outbreak.

Do you believe Newcastle will help their fans?

Yes, they have to

Yes, they have to

No, Ashley is too greedy

No, Ashley is too greedy

So, how can Newcastle demand money for next season when it is still not clear when this season will be finished – if at all?

Douglas is right to call for the Toon to follow Brighton, but their owner is a man who was prepared to put lives at risk for money.

So, based on this, we don’t expect Newcastle to do anything to help their fans.
