After the 2-0 win at Home Park tonight, Newcastle manager Chris Hughton paid tribute to both players and fans, and the Plymouth Argyle club showed us all some real class.
Plymouth Argyle – club and fans a real class act
The win saw Newcastle win the Championship, and are currently 9 points ahead of 2nd placed WBA, with just 2 games to play.
Chris Hughton told ChronicleLive after the game tonight:
“It’s a great achievement, one that the players and staff deserve, not to mention the fans who were magnificent again.”
“We are proud to be able to lift the trophy for them on Saturday.” “It was another good win and we kept up our professional approach.”
After the final whistle tonight, Newcastle fans celebrated on the pitch as the Queens’ “We Are the Champions” blaired out over the loud-speakers.
The Plymouth club tonight showed real class as they not only played “We are The Champions” but also The Blaydon Races and Local Hero for the traveling Newcastle fans.
And this was on the night the Plymouth club was unfortunately relegated to League One.
A class act indeed, that you see all too rarely these days.
Well done – and thanks to the Plymouth fans and football club
