Lots of fans stayed away last night, and the game itself was just terrible to watch.
Newcastle fans must keep supporting the lads
But it’s not helping the Newcastle United club or the players by not turning up, and it’s certainly not impacting Mike Ashley in any negative way.
Saying that it will hit Mike where it hurts – in the pocket – is nonsense, because he’s selling the club as soon as he can, and it’s looking like he will even get a good price for the club, if this Nigerian Consortium is for real.
A crowd of only 20,577 watched last night’s defeat, the lowest at St James’ Park since 14,083 watched a League Cup tie against Mansfield Town in 1992.
But who is that helping? Certainly not the team, who need more help than ever right now, and the owner and Board don’t even turn up these days, so we don’t think they even care.
But let’s not make things any worse than they already are, and we know they are really tragic right now.
The fans of Newcastle United are known for their support through thick and thin (usually thin), so please let’s keep supporting the team – they obviously need a lot of help from us.
Let’s continue the great tradition of Newcastle United fans and support the team on Saturday against Blackburn Rovers, and we can make the difference.
Let’s have a full house for the lads on Saturday, and they may even be able to get the 3 points, especially if we have a new interim manager by then.
Howay The Lads!
