true faith: Keegan Quotes #ASHLEYOUT


“It is not difficult to work out unless you come from another planet and I think Mike Ashley runs that club from another planet,” said Keegan. “Fans are being treated with such disrespect. It is almost as if Mike Ashley has said, ‘what is the worst I can do, change St James’s Park and call it Sports Direct’. Incredible. Fans don’t want to go to games, they want to protest. The answer is not to boycott the game, but to get through the season, stay up, hope and pray someone with lot of money who cares about the club comes … Continue reading

true faith : BLACK & WHITE #OCCUPY SJP


I’ll be honest the description of tomorrow’s match with West Ham as a “massive game” irritates the life out of me. It isn’t a massive game, it’s better described as a “desperate situation”. It’s one that hasn’t happened by accident, it isn’t a weather phenomenon that has brought us to our knees and its one which has been widely predicted to happen by myself and writers of this fanzine and elsewhere for sometime. Basically anyone who understands what is needed in any kind of squad in the Premier League. The continued lack of investment and direction wrapped up in a … Continue reading

MATCH PREVIEW: Newcastle United v West Ham. St James’ Park, 24/May/15. KO: 3pm.


Well this is it, the final match preview of this season and arguably the biggest match in the last twenty years for Newcastle United. A few have expressed hope that they would prefer to see us go down as a means to rid us of Ashley, I’m not so sure that is a given. Relegation has failed to force the Venky’s out of Blackpool, Vincent Tan out of Cardiff or the Oyston family from Blackpool, if we go down either one of two things will happen; either Ashley uses his considerable wealth to ensure we have the strongest squad in … Continue reading

“What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”We’ve all read the great Sir Bobby Robson’s views about what makes a football … Continue reading

Together, this partnership, called the Newcastle Cancer Centre, is helping develop vital drugs for cancer patients in the North East and Cumbria. Today, the importance of these types of clinical trials is being celebrated across the world and a stand at the NCCC raised awareness of their importance with interactive activities to help explain research … Continue reading

It’s an idea that has been borrowed from the highly effective anti-Ashley campaign at Rangers (Lion Brand) and it is a further development in the fight against the Ashley blight at Newcastle United. The Magpie Brand is an alternative shirt for Newcastle United fans to the one being sold by Sports Direct. The latest shirt by Puma is another abomination and hardly reflects the simple, classic Black & White shirt which the club has worn since 1892. That the dolts at United and Puma have managed to put the wrong sponsors logo on the shirt tells you everything about the … Continue reading

true faith : #OCCUPYSJP


We at true faith are giving our 100% support to the Ashley Out campaign group’s next protest which is a sit-in at St James’ Park following the final whistle come Sunday following the end of the match v. West Ham. For full details of the #OccupySJP protest please click here. This is a very judicious protest balancing the need to do everything we can to keep Ashley’s joke football club in the Premiership but at the same time providing another opportunity for us to come together to visibly register our disgust at the rank bad management, lack of ambition and crassness … Continue reading
