Kevin Phillips compares Newcastle United to Aston Villa and his old club, Sunderland.

Mike Ashley Distributing 10,000 season tickets in December 2019 addressed the huge number of vacant seats around his retail empire ad on SJP.
Newcastle United’s home match is set to welcome less than 40,000 spectators this season, so this time we’re waiting to see Mike Ashley’s reaction …
