Fan Group Sends Out Perfect Message For Tonight’s Game

1892 Wor Hyem are one of the new Newcastle fan groups and they work very closely with the Gallowgate Flags group, who have changed the atmosphere of the Gallowgate End this season at St. James’ Park, with some fabulous new flags.

Both groups are trying to improve the atmosphere at St. James’ Park, so that once again it becomes a huge advantage to our team and maybe we can make St. James’ Park into that proverbial fortress we would all like to see.

Certainly manager Rafa Benitez is in full support of these fan groups, who have done one terrific job this season – and all credit goes to them

Wor Hyem 1892’s team coordinator Ed Renwick has produced a letter called “Call to Arms” and he wants to see the atmosphere tonight against Preston white-hot – white-hot for the Lilywhites.

In fact just like the terrific atmosphere when we took Tottenham Hotspur to the cleaners 5-1 last May with 10 men – and that was after we had been relegated.

So the fans had every right to be despondent on that day back in May – tonight’s a chance to get straight back to the Premier League and achieve our number one goal this season so we should be able to create an ever better atmosphere – if that’s possible.

The Wor Hyem group are also very clear to point out that fans can do what they want – as always – they only want to encourage fans to make the atmosphere white hot tonight – back and white hot.

This is what Ed Renwick has written, as reported in the Chronicle earlier today:

“We all know how important tonight is for the fans, the city, the club, the players and for Rafa and I urge everyone to do their bit to help create an electric atmosphere this evening.”

“This is not Wor Hyem telling anyone how to support their club; we are simply asking all fans who want to sing, who want to chant, who want to get behind the team and be that 12th man – to do exactly that.”

“Don’t worry if people around you aren’t chanting, clapping and singing – great atmosphere is infectious, as is good will, and I’m sure with all that is at stake others will join you.”

“We have proved time and time again what a cauldron we can create when we are in the mood, how intimidating we can make it for the away team and how much we can affect how well the players start and continue the game.”

“We showed that against Tottenham last season, Norwich this season and more recently against Leeds where the lads played their socks off for us all.”

“We know how much importance Rafa also places on the positive influence the crowd can have on the team – and we can be the difference tonight.”

“We have three games left and the one tonight can seal our fate and take us up; let’s see if we can’t roar our team onto victory right from the outset and keep it going for the whole 90 minutes.”

“Let’s get behind the team, encourage them, chant as loud as we can and give our support to help them over the line and get us into the Premier League next season.”

“Let’s make the game uncomfortable for Preston, lets push our team on to victory.”

That’s just an excellent heart-felt letter from Ed Renwick – it’s got passion written all over it.

And it really is a wonderful opportunity for our players to set up a night of huge (ginormous) celebrations in the old Toon tonight – with all 3 points.

But a draw will not do it – so we need to see the lads start the game like a steam train on steroids and if we can score an early goal that could be the catalyst that sets the scene for what we all want to see”

A win and promotion straight back to the Premier League – we can do it!

Howay The Lads!!

    I hope this is how we line up tonight…


    Mbemba reminds me of Bailly from United. I think he has more potential then Lascelles, they’re both prone to mistakes although Mbemba is more solid in my opinion

    that’s the last thing we should do at this stage of the season and just before one of the most important games in our history

    I said that on the basis that Lascelles is dropped for Mbemba. Who would you give the captaincy too in this scenario?

    Bumped into a lot of the Preston lads earlier outside the Gateshead Hilton. They don’t look up for the match at all. 2 Nil to the Toon I think. Taking the day off work tomorrow to enjoy one or two fizzy drinks tonight.

    Not sure over reacting is the correct word. Rafa has shown that he drops players this season. Look what happened to Mbemba after his bad game last year! It’s a possibility hibbit. No doubt about it.

    Especially considering he dropped Mbemba again against Leeds after a solid game and then we conceded 3 goals. Mbemba will be considered. I’m almost certain Clark will start.

    Rafa Bingo confirmed lineup

    Anita Lascelles Clark Dummett
    Shelvey Hayden
    Ritchie Perez Gouffran

    Score: 4-0
    Would like to see Atsu instead of Gouffy, and Murphy instead of Perez, but don’t think Rafa will ever start Murphy and Mitro together
    (although he did try it once at Birmingham away in the cup match!)
