Magnificent Support For Newcastle – Once Again


It’s a tribute to the support Newcastle United get, that in a terribly disappointing season, one million supporters will have attended home games at St. James’ Park this season.

Newcastle Fans – Dennis and Chris should think of these when doing the deals

The aggregate attendance at St. James’ Park for the 2007/08 season will once again have passed the one million mark as the season finally comes to a close next Monday against title chasing Chelsea.

The Chelsea game is now sold out, and of course the Blues are in a titanic battle with Manchester United for the Premier League title. Both teams have 81 points, with the Red Devils having a much better goal difference.

In 20 home games this season, including the cup fixtures against Barnsley (Carling Cup) and Stoke City (FA Cup), an aggregate crowd of 988,419 fans have attended St. James’ Park. And with one game left and a sellout – the support goes over the one million mark for the season.

This is fantastic support from the Newcastle faithful, yet again, but they have hardly been rewarded with any success – yet again.

Newcastle end the season on May 11 with a trip to Everton and the 3,000 allocation of tickets? Yes, you’re right they’re already sold out.

Perhaps when Newcastle are looking at what to pay for world class stars to bring to Newcastle this summer, they will remember these faithful supporters and do that little bit more to close the deal, especially when the player is happy to come to Tyneside.

To tell you the truth we are still annoyed we didn’t go the extra mile to get the great Luka Modric to the club. From what we can tell from analyzing the transfer fee involved, another £3M would have had the deal signed, sealed and delivered and the City of Newcastle would now be on fire.

Yes, we know, we’ll have to get over it – but give us another week or two on that one.   🙁

    Shut up about Modric, who cares anymore? I was over it hours after I found out. Let’s just concentrate on our other targets now.

    well lets just think of it this way.. IF he becomes a flop we’ll all be happy.. ok i did my best lol

    seriously 20-25m is a lot though. even if hes just good its a waste of money he has to be amazing straight away and u never know the premier league may be too physical for him. i hope so now in anyways.

    Hope Messi gets a hattrick, he’s much better than Ronaldo. Put Messi in a sh*t team and he’d still be amazing, put Ronaldo in a sh*t team and he wouldn’t get close to the number of goals he has.

    if they share any of our transfer targets and he gets sacked it gives us a better chance.

    Ed, we will miss out on players and some we will get and make people take notice. Like when we signed Owen after a bad season under souness against all odds (Have everyone forgot about that?)… Whoever we get, he might not be as good as Mordic skill wise, but he will improve what we have and KK will have him and the others motivated in 14 out of 15 games to play at his absolute best. Who knows how Ramos will fare next season?… They started the hooneymoon motivated, but they have been generally bad since.

    to be fair its usually the same 52’000 who turn up every week, give or take a few hundred, so 1 million supporters isnt really accurate.

    Football Manager Live is a bit different to a network game, on FML you won’t be using proper clubs or players iirc. Not really interested in it so I don’t know too much.

    Maverick using your comment as a yardstick you would need 20 different sets of supporters for each game. No real reason for making this comment other than its a slightly wacky nerdy thing to say.

    the real supporters are the ones who have turned up during the fat sham days when we have been doing awful and the ones that stick their hand in their pocket each and every week for a ticket. season tickets arent cheap neitha are away games for sure. £80 for me last away game.

    thts wat makes us different to all other supporters though we’ll fill the capacity at st james’ or away at small grounds with shitty fans like wigan or fulham and sing our hearts out as we watch another shite performance (well earlier in the season at fulham and wigan).

    btw the sven thing is laughable. thank god we have mort and ashley instead of shinawatra. thank god.
