Championship Fixtures Announced – Geordie Fans Upbeat

It’s really strange but when the fixtures for the Championship were announced earlier today most Newcastle fans were buzzing and were even looking forward to trips to quaint places like Burton Albion.

It’s the Rafa effect, with fans convinced the Spanish manager will turn things around at Newcastle and get us straight back up next May and not only that, but we will then be able to challenge for a top six position in the Premier League.

One thing we shouldn’t forget is that it gives a chance for Newcastle supporters in England a chance to go and watch the lads play when they live in cities or towns with a Championship club – or close to one.


Rafa Benitez – at Liverpool with Newcastle – he’s the man!

Certainly it’s odd things are so upbeat on Tyneside after a relegation – but that’s the way it is.

Here are some typical tweets sent out following the fixtures, which see us play at Craven Cottage on Friday night – 5th August to kick off what we hope will be a very successful season down below.
