News this morning that the Newcastle allocation for Saturday’s game at Blackburn has now been sold out – well that’s hardly a surprise after the Newcastle heroics against Arsenal.
This is Newcastle United Passion
So it looks like there will be 5,000 screaming mad Geordies at the Darwen End, for Saturday’s very important game with Blackburn Rovers.
We need to settle a score there, because Blackburn beat us 2-1 at St. James’ on Wednesday, 10th November, when we gave away two soft goals.
The sell-out for Saturday is hardly surprising since the club have been selling out their away allocations all season long.
And Alan Pardew has been astonished at the Geordie pride and passion shown since he arrived on Tyneside.
And we are truly hoping he will be like Chris Hughton before him, and be inspired to work his socks off to make Newcastle United into a successful side again. 😀
This is what Magpies manager Alan Pardew said today:
“We saw what a difference our passionate fans can make when their support helped us to come back against Arsenal and it’s going to give us a big boost when we come out of the tunnel at Blackburn and see so many fans backing us.”
“It’s another example of the passion of this football club’s supporters. Since I’ve been here, they have not only lived up to everything I’d been led to believe about them, but surpassed it. They’re something else and we’ll look to reward that following with a performance to match.”
Newcastle are simply the best supported club in football, and that’s the way it’s always been.
That’s the truth, and the support is so passionate, the fans can even create a miracle from their side – as was witnessed last Saturday.
Howay The Lads!!
