Newcastle To Take Action Against Shameful Fans


Newcastle United have quickly condemned what they call the shameful behavior of some of their fans last night, during the second half of the friendly at Darlington.

Newcastle fans last night – not good!

The trouble occurred after Sammy Ameobi had scored Newcastle’s second goal in the 55th minute, and the referee threatened to abdondon the game, before oder was finally restored.

It took Newcastle manager Alan Pardew to make a statement to try to calm the Newcastle fans down.

A statement from the club’s Managing Director, Derek Llambias, earlier today read:

“On behalf of everyone at Newcastle United, we wholly condemn the behavior of a number of our supporters who invaded the pitch during the second half of the club’s friendly against Darlington.”

“The club will be seeking to obtain footage of the disorder from Darlington and the police and will be taking the strongest possible action against those individuals responsible for the shameful behaviour.”

“This behaviour is not typical of the vast majority of our fans, however this incident gives a poor impression of Newcastle United and its loyal supporters.”

This does not give Newcastle United good press, obviously, and now it seems the club will study video of the invasion, in a determined attempt to find out who the perpetraters were.

The club will then take action, which could mean a lifetime ban for those supporters responsible for the trouble last night.

Newcastle finally won the game 2-0, and it was Ben Arfa’s first game in nine months, after recovering from his broken leg.

Newcastle fly off on Sunday to Kansas City,  to start their three game American tour.

    your right it was not darlington fans that started that . i am wondering if the sunderland fans entered the pitch first then nufc fans followed which gave the the purfect chance for the fighting to start which made it look worse

  • It’s going to be hard to prove that it was Sunderland fans that started. Even I have my doubts.

    I can’t see how anyone can say “it was funny at first.” It’s terrifying for players. They don’t know that it’s a bit of fun. They don’t know if they are being attacked or not, whether people are armed or not. It’s given the Cockney media a field day AGAIN.

    For the first time I can think of, I have to agree with Llambias and believe me I don’t want to.

  • toonruz, thing is about you being wrong about Gervinho, is that you abused anyone and everyone who disagreed with you or didn’t believe you.

    Toonruz you called people names to those who disagreed with your rubbish. And you still got the cheek to come in here?

    Anyway how did Gervinho and Nzogbia fare last night? By the way Gervinho looked great in our orange away jersey!

  • toonruz; what I meant is it’s all very well putting your hands up and admitting you where wrong. But you owe a lot of people on here an apology. But instead you start abusing people again.

    Was a total embarrassment just a load of daft kids and idiots who couldn’t handle their drink. The fighting was caused when two or three daft kids were being hauled out by stewards and were getting booed so started acting the bigging. This caused about 15 blokes to re-enter the pitch again and cue the fighting.

    Back to the football many positives ben arfa and cabaye always making themselves available and bringing others into play. Cabaye has some of the best passing and vision I’ve seen in a newcastle shirt. Vukic looked really good as did sammy when he came on. Leon Best was unlucky not to score and its a joke I think if he gets moved on over the other strikers!

    @toonruz.

    total embarrassment. sunderland fans present or not, not sure what’s funny about fighting in the stands. we’ve never had the small club syndrome that drives a bunch of idiots to head for the turf as soon as they get in the ground. hopefully no serious ramifications.
