Newcastle United fans have been reacting to figures that have emerged when it comes to the amount of money that Mike Ashley has invested at the club.
Data shared by football finance expert Kieran Maguire over the weekend showed just how little money Ashley has invested over the years when it comes to infrastructure spend at the club, with the figures showing that the club spent just £200k in the 2019/20 season.
This figure was less than 10 times lower than that of the team who spent the second-lowest amount, which was AFC Bournemouth at £2.1m.
It should come as no surprise to see Newcastle not spending much given the reputation that Ashley has gained over the years, but when numbers were presented to them in such a harsh way when compared to the rest of the Premier League, it led to some rather furious comments from fans on social media:
“We are a joke”
Do you think there have been positives from Mike Ashley's reign?
No, not a single one
Yes, there have been a few
Hopefully, this is something that will get fixed if and when the club are able to have their takeover completed at some point in the future.
