What a week it's been, with a low start to the week for us Geordies, it had to be all up from there, right? Well after the last couple of days of results, I think that’s a good summary. Stockdale is a geordie? Fulhamcastle United? We've seen some positive results which keep both our title hopes and our automatic promotion hopes alive - cruel or kind?
The purpose of these articles (which should come weekly) are to go over some key atmosphere news you may have missed throughout the week. See it as a one stop shop for your Newcastle United Atmosphere news.
Thank you to all of our fans who travelled down to Ipswich and kept up our famous away atmosphere, the result may not have been the one we wanted, but as I listened to the match at home, I kept hearing one thing - our fans.
We released three testimonials this week written by Ryan, Liam and Amy - all of whom are members of our movement and wanted to share what the toon means to them and their opinions on the atmosphere at St James Park. We urge everyone to give them all a read and #beinspired.
As reported by the Chronicle, Newcastle United have presented the FA with reports that conclude moving the away supporters pitch-side at St James Park would violate health and safety practices put in place by the club which are supported by the local authorities. Newcastle United are aiming to keep the away supporters 14 flights up in top level Leazes where they currently reside.
Where do you stand when it comes to Away Supporters at St James Park? Should they remain up with the God’s or should they be moved pitch-side to give a more even playing field? Should they remain where they are to keep St James Park a fortress built with strong Geordie walls or would the away fans force an increase in passionate singing from the currently quiet sections of the ground? Send us a message on social media or through our contact us form on the website and let us know your opinions.
Tomorrow see’s NUFC play Preston at home, unbelievably there are still some tickets left for home supporters so if you haven’t grabbed your tickets yet or you know some friends/family that might want to go, contact the box office as soon as possible. The Box Office is open until 4pm today (Sunday).
It’s truly going to be an exciting match tomorrow with the possibility of Newcastle United securing promotion. Leeds had the best atmosphere we’d seen all season at home and everyone here at Wor Hyem 1892 plead to anyone going tomorrow night to keep up the momentum and passion. NUFC share our vision and have released an article which you can read below.
