Mehrdad Ghodoussi issues heartfelt message after Newcastle United criticism v Chelsea
Ghodoussi urged supporters "to be louder" and be the "12th man". Fellow co-owner Jamie Reuben also replied: "What a team and yes we need to match the intensity of the players with our support".
The pair's interaction angered sections of the Magpies' fanbase, with a number of users on social pointing towards the ticketing issues and the delay in getting into the stadium.
And Ghodoussi has addressed the backlash on X, formerly known as Twitter.
He tweeted: "Often, our intentions and words don't align perfectly. I believe most of you know how deeply I'm committed to this club; my heart beats in black and white, and my love for the club and all of you is unwavering.
"Let's keep our fingers crossed for tonight, we stand united. Here's to us and our journey together. Howay the Lads #NUFC"
Staveley wrote: “What an amazing game! So proud of the whole team who worked so hard today. The atmosphere was amazing and we are so lucky to know our 'twelfth man' is always our fans."
Howe said: "I think the supporters have been incredible home and away. The Chelsea game, when we scored the goals, was as good as it has been.
