A lot of Newcastle United fans have replied to a post from Mark Douglas about the Toon’s refusal to give refunds back to fans even after the Premier League confirmed that the rest of the season would be played behind closed doors.

To kick things off, who is this man from the 2009/10 season?

The Evening Chronicle reporter claimed that it was ‘barely believable’ that NUFC has taken direct debit money off season ticket holders for the 2020/21 season.

He also said that there was ‘no plan’ to refund any of this season’s games and that other clubs were ‘putting them to shame.’

Douglas followed this up with another tweet in which he claims that the ongoing takeover might have had an impact but that these issues pre-date any takeover talk.

Do you agree with Douglas?





This continued decision by Newcastle has annoyed these Toon fans.

A few Newcastle fans believe that the takeover is stopping fans from receiving their money back, but it appears that Douglas disagrees with this.

While other Premier League clubs are taking steps to provide refunds, the Toon just sit on the money.

However, it is Douglas claiming that this is ‘barely believable‘ that has triggered a reaction from these Toon fans.

One supporter claimed he was used to this scenario because of how the Toon’s hierarchy has treated them for the last 13 years.

The deal for Amanda Staveley’s Saudi-backed consortium is still with the Premier League going through the required checks after a deposit was paid to Mike Ashley.

One Toon fan suggested that this takeover could be stopping the club from providing refunds because he thinks that the club’s assets might be frozen while the takeover is resolved.

That might well be the case, but surely the club should say this rather than providing a wall of silence?

Douglas has made some valid points about this situation, and hopefully, the Toon’s takeover situation is sorted soon, so the refund problem can also possibly be resolved.
