There will be a traveling army of around 4,000 for tomorrow afternoonâ€™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 Newcastleâ€™s fans are concerned. But theyâ€™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.
â€œWe 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.â€
â€œOur fans will not get home until one oâ€™clock in the morning. I donâ€™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.â€
During our last away game at Blackburn, following Joey Bartonâ€™s comments about the fans being vicious, they were just great at Blackburn and were almost rewarded by the team with a result. Theyâ€™ll again be in full voice tomorrow, and we hope this time the team can reward them with a win â€“ they certainly deserve it.
Comments always welcome.
