There’s every reason in the world why Newcastle fans should be staying away from St. James’ Park this season.
The Newcastle United Fans
Last season the team was relegated for the first time in 20 years and Mike Ashley has made a laughing stock out of the club this summer, with his attempts to sell the club, for the second time.
But Newcastle had an amazing 43,904 fans at St. James’ Park last night, and are now averaging more than 40,000 in their first two home games in the Championship.
And the players are deserving of that support this season, as they’ve shown fight and spirit in all their first 3 games of the season.
In fact Newcastle had a bigger crowd than was at Sunderland to see Chelsea play on Tuesday evening.
And local goal hero Ameobi has today said the players are very thankful for the support being shown by the Newcastle fans so far this season:
“It was testament to our fans.” “I read before the game that we’d had the fourth- highest attendance in the country.”
“And that’s testament to our fanbase, and the people who want to come and support us.”
“It would have been so easy for the fans to desert us after going down – but they’re what’s making us fight like we are.”
With the support the team received last night, it makes an enormous difference to the players, and they produced the guts and character in the second half to hold on for the valuable 3 points.
And it appears that if the players keep up their new attitude and fighting spirit, they’ll get all the support they need this season.
Howay The Lads!!
