Newcastle' all-time top League goalscorer is Alan Shearer but how many goals did he score for the ?

HMRC raided Newcastle in 2017, but that investigation has ended, and Ashley claimed that the club had been “subjected” to the investigation over the last four years.

He also claimed that it is now time for the “dark forces that are preventing this football club from becoming the powerhouse the fans deserve, to step aside.”

Ashley has launched another legal case against the Premier League over the failed takeover, but his comments have got these Toon fans talking.

Come on now, he just wants the big bucks from the sale.”
