A lot of Newcastle United fans have responded to a tweet from Mark Douglas about Mike Ashley.

The Evening Chronicle reporter said that he ‘still can’t get over the breathtaking arrogance of Ashley and his company’.

Who is Newcastle's top goalscorer in the league?

This was after Sports Direct revealed that they would stay open as they thought they were ‘uniquely well placed to help keep the UK as fit and as healthy as possible‘.

The government have closed all ‘non-essential’ shops to the public to help stop the spread of this virus, but incredibly, Ashley attempted to keep Sports Direct open.

Is this one of the worst things Mike Ashley has done?





The backlash was monumental, and he has now decided to close his stores, but this has still annoyed these Toon fans.

Other Newcastle supporters were angry but not surprised at the actions of their owner.

What do we think?

The fact Ashley even attempted this is disgusting in our view, and we think he should be ashamed of himself.

George Caulkin pointed out that by trying to keep shops open, he was risking lives just for profit – which we think is despicable.

It will be interesting to see what happens now, but we don’t think Ashley should get away with this.
