Former Magpies midfielder Barton cannot empathize the take chances on the social club retaining its top-fledge status having double fought its manner binding afterward slithering into the Flip Look Backup during Ashley’s term of office.

He told the Chronicle: « The club will not be the club it could be while they’ve got the owner they’ve got. He’s not going to change. It’s sad, but that’s his way of doing things and I feel sorry for the supporters because they do deserve more.
