A lot of Newcastle United fans have responded to a post from their club that has revealed the Toon’s first four fixtures of the Premier League’s restart.
Newcastle start with a home tie against Sheffield United on 21st June before Aston Villa visit Tyneside on 24th June. Manchester City travel to St. James’ Park for the FA Cup clash on the 28th of June, which is followed by an away tie at Bournemouth on 1st July, meaning that the Magpies will play four games in 11 days, having not played any football since 7th March.
This has worried these Toon fans, who fear the squad might pick up some injuries.

However, it appears that some Newcastle fans are not bothered by any of this and want information on the proposed takeover and their refunds.
Newcastle are in the middle of a proposed takeover by Amanda Staveley’s Saudi-backed consortium with the deal still with the Premier League going through the required checks.
A deposit was paid to Mike Ashley in April, but here we are in June, and still, the Premier League has not made a decision.
This has still not stopped these Toon fans from demanding their club to announce the takeover.
Announce the takeover. #AshleyOut

The Premier League confirmed that the rest of the season would be played behind closed doors, and many fans are disgruntled about refunds as the Toon continue to hold onto money from fans.
Newcastle were asked to comment on this by The Chronicle, but they refused to provide an answer, leading to some angry fans.
ANSWER YOUR FANS!
WHY DO YOY CONTINUE TO IGNORE US?!
WHY WON’T YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE LEGALLY REQUIRE REFUNDS FOR GAMES WE HAVE PAID FOR BUT CAN’T ATTEND BY LAW??#NUFC

The Toon’s fixture schedule could be tough for them, but understandably, there are other issues that appear to have taken priority for many Newcastle fans.
