What an embarrassment – the big screen at the Leazes End of the ground became unsteady before the game, and the opening of the turnstiles was delayed.
This is an embarrassment for the club and they will likely be fined by the Premier league for this (latest) incompetence.
This is what the club have put out:
Update: Turnstiles will open at 3:15pm, with kick-off scheduled for 4:00pm.
“An engineer is on site and will make a full appraisal at approximately 3pm. Further information will be available as soon as possible,”
“We apologise for the inconvenience caused. We will bring you further information as soon as it is available.”
This comes after journalists found out today that Newcastle would no longer provide food in the press room – what’s going on with all this incompetence at Newcastle these days?
And this is all before this extremely important game even kicks off!
