In these very dire times for the Newcastle United Football club, at least the fans are doing all they can to support the lads, and that’s just fantastic to see.
This is Newcastle United Football Club
The lads will have the backing of a sold-out away end for Saturday’s season-opener at West Bromwich Albion and the Hawthorns.
The Newcastle fans, as faithful as ever, have snapped up the few remaining tickets of their 2,700 allocation for the televised clash at The Hawthorns, which has 5:30 pm kick off time this Saturday.
Newcastle, when some would think the support would be dying away, have seen really magnificent support from their fans in the pre-season, and it warms the heart to see the lads being so well supported, when the club is facing so many problems.
Stand-in boss Chris Hughton, who is also doing his level best in a very bad situation, told the Newcastle official site today:
“We can’t thank the fans enough for their support in recent weeks.”
“The players appreciate that backing and hope that, when the season starts, they can give them something to shout about.”
The support has been phenomenal and its in these bad times when the character of the fans really shines through. We thank the brave lads and lasses who are supporting the team right now. With support like this, surely success on the field cannot be that far away, but yes, there’s a definite hope in those words, to be sure. 😀
Hey, the players are very appreciative and maybe they can even give us a win on Saturday – that would be something great to celebrate, after all the misery we’ve been through this year.
Howay The Lads!!
