In the nine years Mike Ashley has owned Newcastle United this is now our second relegation. We have spent several of the other years variously fighting relegation or in the The Championship. We had one decent season with a fifth place finish which now looks like a fluke.
We want you to contribute to a discussion using the comment boxes below to express your views on Ashley’s stewardship of Newcastle United, the people he has employed to run the club, his strategy and where United goes from here. Is this relegation too far now and is it time for sustained action to remove him from the club by all means at our disposal? Does the support have the will to make that happen? Do we have the unity and determination to stick together to effect a real change? Is it possible for a completely disenfranchised set of fans to make the change we want or are we just pissing in the wind?
Who could lead a campaign against Ashley and who would want to given our support can’t agree on the most minute of issue? Who would want to step forward to take that task on given the abuse and vilification that comes with it
Is Newcastle United finally on the point of crashing and burning? Is the club set for an extended stay outside of the top division? Or can it bounce back and what needs to be done to make that happen?
Is the whole Rafa to stay line just a Keith Bishop PR ruse to draw a sting from what might be a poisonous atmosphere on Sunday at SJP?

Express yourself below but please remain polite and respectful of each-other. We are all hurting now but remember we all support the same football club and are bound by that for better or worse.
