As expected, Newcastle have issued a statement on the behavior of some of their fans in the Newcastle City Center and at the Newcastle Central Station, after yesterday’s 3-0 defeat by local rivals Sunderland.
Derek LLambias – Newcastle have issued a statement on yesterday’s fan behavior
Here is Newcastle’s statement issued this afternoon:
We were embarrassed and appalled by the behavior of a minority of so-called fans who last night were involved in disturbances and disorder in Newcastle city center after the match.
Newcastle United have been working with Northumbria Police, and will continue to do so, in order to identify all of the individuals concerned.
The Club will take the strongest possible action against those involved in the disturbances and will impose immediate lifetime bans on all those found guilty.
These deplorable individuals have no place at Newcastle United and bring shame on the Club and the vast majority of its proper, law-abiding, fans.
It was very hard to take yesterday for Newcastle fans, but we have to take it and move on, and hope our lads will do a lot better, and show a lot more passion and fight next Saturday at West Brom.
Three points would be very nice.
