Will The Banner Get Another Airing?

Last updated : 21 February 2018 By Footy Mad - Editor

Newcastle United fans protesting against owner Mike Ashley displayed a giant banner in the Gallowgate End of St James' Park before the 1-1 draw against Burnley.

The banner, consisting of eight sections displayed on four levels, used a quote from former Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan.

Although it did not mention Ashley by name, its 62-word message targeted the billionaire, who has put the club up for sale but has yet to conclude any deal.

It read: "Don't ever give up on your club. Keep supporting it, it's your club and trust me, one day you will get your club back and it will be everything you wanted it to be.

"Newcastle United is bigger than anyone. It hurts, I know, but just keep going. He is only one man we are a city, a whole population. Trust me."

Reports suggested the club had been unaware of the existence of the banner before it was displayed at 7.35 p.m, 10 minutes before the match kicked off.

It wasn't shown at the game against Man Utd. Will we see it again?
