“In the aftermath of NCJ Media’s coverage of the recent Time 4 Change protest march and the subsequently unjust press ban that the club imposed upon the Newcastle Chronicle, The Journal and the Sunday Sun, it has come to our attention that a substantial number of fans have suggested bringing copies of The Chronicle into Saturday’s game against Chelsea. This would be accompanied by waving the papers towards the Directors’ Box before kick off as a sign of support for the freedom of the press in our city.
This move also has the backing of the Newcastle United Supporters Trust who, along with Time 4 Change, feel that that there is a need to counter the reprehensible and dictatorial tactics of Mike Ashley.
The club’s move against the local press is yet more evidence of how far out of touch Mr Ashley is with the club’s stakeholders and it has further fuelled the feelings of alienation felt by many fans”.
