Newcastle Support Blows Away New Boys At Newcastle


Newcastle are averaging around 42,000 in home league gates this season, even though the side is playing in the English second tier.

Alan Smith – new boys blown away with Newcastle support

The former Leeds, Manchester United and England player Alan Smith has talked to day about how the new boys at Newcastle have been blown away with support Newcastle continue to get both at St. James’ Park and away form home.

Fitz Hall, Mike Williamson, Wayne Routledge, Leon Best and Patrick Van Aanholt have all talked about the incredible fan support the team gets on Tyneside.

Alan told the Evening Chronicle today:

“We were speaking about it before.” “The crowds that this club gets – you won’t get them anywhere else in this division.”

“It’s as simple as that.” “Everyone comes out, and they know how passionate it is.”

“The new lads came in, and they couldn’t believe it.” “That’s how big this club is.”

“Everyone in football knows it’s one of the biggest clubs in the country, whichever league they’re in.”

The significant support Newcastle have continued to get this season will auger well in the summer if we get promoted.

That’s because players will be more likely to come to Newcastle, after the decent publicity the club has been getting recently – and that’s been a good change – no doubt about it.

It’s good the team is getting positive publicity for what they are doing on the pitch, and long may it continue.

Comments very welcome.

    hope that players like phil airey & adjei get loaned out next season so that they can pick up some 1st team experience…true superstars in the making. Come to think of it, with carrol, lovenkrands, best, ameobi & offcourse the strong likelihood of signing a new striker should/when we get promoted, i would hope that ranger would get loned out to a ccc club for some experience as well

    I live in Australia, im only 18 years old and i was driving out in the country almost outback and i drove past a bus stop and saw just a guy with the famous black and white jersey on, i yelled out the window ‘up the toon’! He gave the thumbs up. Then i thought to myself this is a massive club, im in the outback of Australia and there is a fellow newcastle supporter wearing his colours thousands of miles from st james park.
