    Looking like a poor turnout at Newcastle


    0 Not allowed!
    Itís looking like it going to be a poor turnout at Newcastle this weekend.
    It looks like we have sold less than 1500 tickets for the game.
    Is this down to the fact that Newcastle is just
    too far away or is it the wrong time of the month.(financially)
    Is our poor away form a factor.

      All of those factors I would think.

      Is taking 1300 to NEWCASTLE for our 3rd trip there in 3 years when we've not won an away game in nearly a year "poor" ? Not bad for us really, if anything it highlights how much our support has grown. Suspect we'd have had 800ish for an equivalent game at say Middlesbrough in the Championship.

      They should be made to stand outside when visiting the Amex

      I was thinking about it ... and do you know what tipped me into not going? The rail replacement buses they've got on at the moment. Little things

      I can remember going to Boro in early December not so long ago & there being 1000.That was during our tippy tappy days under Poyet.
      Iím not criticizing our support but just trying to figure out weather this is a one off or are we now seeing a true reflection of where we are as a premier league club.

      This is my first trip to Newcastle.

      Last year over Xmas was unaffordable.

      Championship year turned out to be my wedding day on August bank holiday weekend.

      Mrs is a Newcastle fan so we're heading up Friday and coming back Monday to coincide with my 40th tomorrow.

      And yes, she's in the home end and I'm in the away end with you lot.

      I couldn't trust myself in the home end if we scored. I'd get my head kicked in or kicked out!
      I feel sorry for people who don't drink because when they wake up, that's the best they are going to feel all day.

      I’m not criticizing our support but just trying to figure out weather this is a one off or are we now seeing a true reflection of where we are as a premier league club.
      I'm not sure our core away support has changed by much over the past 5, 10 or even 20 years.

      It's probably ticked up a bit, but nothing like the jump in home support from Withdean to Amex phase I and, now, the Amex phase II.
