Newcastle fans plan walkout

Newcastle United fans are planning a mass walkout during Saturday’s game against Cardiff as a protest against the club’s management, BBC Sport reports.

The walkout comes after the club’s worst run in the top flight since 1987, suffering six consecutive defeats and they look set to finish outside the top 10.

It is set to take place in the 69th minute of Saturday’s game as a reminder of the last time the Magpies won a major trophy, which was the Fairs Cup in 1969.

"It's the lack of ambition that has driven fans to think there must be some symbolic way to protest," said fans group spokesman Mark Jensen.

"It's a club that's falling apart."

The protest was organised by the Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST) as an attempt to turn their club around.

Jensen, a board member of the NUST, also said that the owner only cares about the business side of the club but made no mention of manager Alan Pardew, despite several banners in protest of the 52-year-old at previous games.

"He had no previous attachment to Newcastle," said Jensen.

"Any money he put in has been as an investment that he hopes to get much more out of at the end. If Newcastle were run with ambition, then we can all be winners - Ashley and the fans."

"Fans are way past caring whether Pardew stays or goes. He's seen as part of the problem and not the solution. Pardew is seen as a puppet.

"The vast majority want Pardew to go, but they wouldn't believe it would change an awful lot."

Newcastle have declined to comment about the planned walkout.
