Terrific Fan Support For Newcastle at Fulham

3:47 pm, Friday, December 14th, 2007 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 9 Comments

There will be a traveling army of around 4,000 for tomorrow afternoon’s game at Craven Cottage, with about that many tickets having been sold for the game tomorrow in London.


The fabulous fan support which is Newcastle United

The kick-off time tomorrow, 5-15pm so the game can be televised by Setanta Sports, is not the best time as far at Newcastle’s fans are concerned. But they’ll still be there in some number and before Sam and the team left for London this afternoon the manager again applauded the terrific fans at Newcastle United.

Allardyce said:

“We have sold 4,000 tickets and, like at Blackburn in our previous away match, support like this is nothing short of brilliant, especially for a tea-time kick-off in London.”

“Our fans will not get home until one o’clock in the morning. I don’t know if there will be time for them to get a pint, but I am hoping we can still give them something to celebrate.”

During our last away game at Blackburn, following Joey Barton’s comments about the fans being vicious, they were just great at Blackburn and were almost rewarded by the team with a result. They’ll again be in full voice tomorrow, and we hope this time the team can reward them with a win – they certainly deserve it.

Comments always welcome.

    Well as Fulhams home gates are usually around the 20 thou mark it should be more like a home game for us.

    Terrific supportors, just deserve better from the team!

    The team has played much better since the Portsmouth/Liverpool debacle and need to continue the improvement with a win a 3 points.
