This should never happen to any club! Hope to god this gets sorted ASAP! Only felt like yesterday I was there and the way Richard and Julie ran the club was second to none ?? @GatesheadFC players and staff deserve better, especially after this amazing season ??

Really disappointing to see simply echoing what the majority have already said my time up there was with fond memories a great club. It’s a shame especially after having such a good season on the pitch hope this situation gets turned around for a more positive deserving outcome

Dear Ranjan, legally your the owner, so sell, pull the rug from under Cala's feet, you 2 aren't wanted here, your disliked by the players, staff and fans. Do the decent thing and sell up now, theres decent, honest people waiting to take over, whilst you 2 are killing the club

Proud of the Gateshead players and staff for their stand today. Shows a bond between them and fans that is lacking in modern football.
The owners need to leave and get Gateshead back on track.
Look what they’ve achieved this season, imagine what they could do next year!

Whatever actions you take, if it comes to it, we will stand alongside you in that to.
