It’s going to be an important game for Newcastle on Saturday afternoon at St. James’ Park when we take on Birmingham City who are in 5th place in the Championship.
There will be yet another crowd of over 50,000 at St. James’ Park to roar on the lads and the Newcastle captain has talked today in the local press about how important the crowd is to the players.
Jamaal Lascelles – Newcastle’s impressive young captain
Jamaal has revealed it means a lot to the players to get the fantastic support they have been getting all season long on the road – and we wont even mention the massive crowds that have been attending the home games.
This is what the 23 year-old Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles has said today, as reported in the Shields Gazette:
“Every away game, we get the same sort of reaction from the crowd.” “They’re unbelievable. It does have a massive impact on us as players.”
“We can hear it. Credit to them.” “We’re really thankful, and we’ll always give our all on the pitch. “Either way, 6,000 or 2,000 – they’re still loud.”
“They keep singing. We can’t fault our fans. All we can do is keep putting in performances for them.”
Newcastle supporters are famous for their passionate support of the team and it’s going to be a big factor this season and it’s a huge positive for Newcastle United.
For those attending the games home or away – you are individually and collectively making a huge positive impact this season.
And we just have to get promoted and then we can celebrate fully once promotion is certain and then the summer transfer window will be terrific.
Onward and upwards – or should that be the other way round?
Howay The Lads!!
