Hilarious Newcastle fan reaction to #AshleyDinnerDate as under-fire owner treats squad
Mike Ashley is reportedly planning to treat Rafa Benitez and his players to dinner - and Newcastle fans have responded with some hilarious reactions.
The Magpies owner attended his first game at St James's Park since May 2017 on Saturday and witnessed the club make their worst-ever start to a home campaign following a fourth successive defeat.
Benitez admitted confidence was low after the 2-0 defeat to Leicester City and Ashley wants to help boost morale among the squad by taking them for dinner.
And Newcastle fans, who continue to protest against Ashley's ownership of the club, have taken to Twitter to mock Ashley's gesture.
