Newcastle United will be a top draw on the road this season, especially if they maintain their position at or near the top of the Championship.
And we were surprised after we were relegated to hear people like Alan Shearer say that it wasn”t going to be easy in the Championship, because now every game against Newcastle will be their Cup Final.
And the opposition will raise their game, just like the Foxes did on Monday night, when they looked the better team in the first half, but missed their chances.
But we don’t see it that way – in fact we don’t see it that way at all.
Manchester United, as just one example, have been putting up with that for over 20 years under Alex Ferguson – and they still keep winning. 😀
Hey, when you’re good you’re good and when you’re successful you must be willing to take the extra pressure that comes with that – and it’s not just in football that is true.
No, we think it’s great for the club, and we’d love to think all away games this season will be sold out, because it will be the only opportunity they’ll get to see Newcastle. That’s because we’ll be back in the Premier League next season. 😀
Wouldn’t that be terrific!
As just one example this was put up on the official Blackpool web-site today:
Newcastle Now A Sell-Out
Wed 02 Sep 2009
Tickets for the Seasiders next home fixture against Newcastle United on Wednesday 16 September have now sold out.
A decision on whether further tickets can or will be made available, is dependent on a satisfactory safety inspection taking place on Block R.
The official website will notify supporters in due course.
We love it!
