Newcastle fans are always quick to take to social media to vent their opinions. The latest protest plans are no different.

The awful tenure under Mike Ashley is something all fans want to come to an end. However, it’s clear not all fans agree with how that should happen.

Attempted protests

Already this season, The Magpie Group have attempted an 11-minute walk-in against West Ham United. Then followed the abandoned boycott vs Wolves.

Some fans have even taken to protesting against Ashley outside a restaurant and outside his home. The latest plan is a sit-in at the full-time whistle following the home game against current champions, Manchester City. However, although it’s live on BT Sport, many fans have their reservations.

Twitter user @ToonPolls posed the question: “Will you be taking part in the sit-in against Man City?”

Perhaps unsurprisingly, two-thirds of those who responded weren’t up for the idea:

What seems evident is that something needs doing, but no-one can agree on what is best. While the polls brought in a resounding ‘no’, The Magpie Group did have backing on their own account.

It remains to be seen if Toon fans can find a cause that they’d all be willing to participate in, but a lot depends on how the team perform on the pitch, too.
