The only downside to Saturday was how many seats were empty in the East (and to a lesser extent the North) Stand before the end of the game on Saturday.
Yes, there are some who need to get away as they have either a long way to travel, of have plans for that particular evening, but to see so many empty seats was IMO disappointing.
The players deserve better.
Thanks Robbie - one day we'll name a stand after you.
We need to bear in mind too, that the away support is going to be much bigger, and much much more vociferous than it was on Saturday. They make a lot of noise those Geordies.
Be nice too, if we all same the same songs. and in time with one another . Sometimes it seems that even different sections of the North Stand. are out of sync with one another.
Get a DRUM or something you can BANG along on time to
Please buy from Amazon via this link. Thanks.
Its a few in the East, just as it is in the West and everywhere else. All this 'better stand / better fans' bullshit ****s me right off, frankly. (As you know) I pretty much alternate between the ESL and the West. There is absolutely no discernible difference at all in the % of folk who get up to leave (very) shortly before the end.
Stand or Fall
