Itâ€™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. Jamesâ€™ 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. Jamesâ€™ 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 â€“ yet again.
Newcastle end the season on May 11 with a trip to Everton and the 3,000 allocation of tickets? Yes, youâ€™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 didnâ€™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 Â£3M would have had the deal signed, sealed and delivered and the City of Newcastle would now be on fire.
Yes, we know, weâ€™ll have to get over it – but give us another week or two on that one. Â 🙁
