The away atmosphere is better than home

By Ryan    29/03/17   

I've been going to St James since 1998, 2 or 3 times a season. I took my lad (Lennon) to his 1st game against Stoke in 2010 he was 4. He was probably a bit young but he enjoyed it. We have always sat in the Gallowgate or as close to the East corner as we could because that's the only atmosphere there is especially if the Team isn't playing well or are getting beat. I have always stood and sang and got behind the lads on the field no matter what. Or at least till I start getting funny looks or stares off fellow Toon fans. I've never had a season ticket as the last few years I've always mixed it up with home games and a few away. I almost gave up on going to home games as away games is so much better atmosphere. Even my lad is sick of the negativity at StJames. I've been on twitter for about 18month now and almost deleted my account as it was just full of Negativity about the Team. The Spurs game was unreal and apart from Benfica the best buzz I've had at home. We were RELEGATED I was gutted but the thought of Rafa staying gave me hope. He has stayed because of us, the fans!! Where have we gone?? I know fellas from the 70's 80's era that havn't been anywhere near StJames for 10 year because of the flat atmosphere. My mind was decided after Wigan away. Delete Twitter and just go to away Games but around that time I started seeing tweets and positively and the big urge to improve the atmosphere and #bringbackthenoise. I followed these lads and lasses and kept my twitter haha and now definitely a season Ticket as there seems to be hundreds more like me. Get behind the team and sing your heart out. Rafa stayed because of the fans. If we keep going like we are he could go because of us. The Wor Hyem group are so passionate about the club and the City it is unbelievable. They just want that buzz back and that noise. Like most of us. We all need to get together and UNITE. If we could put as much effort into the atmosphere as the Wor Hyem team are putting it to sorting it out. It will be the Fortress like it once was. We have Rafa Benitez!! One of the best managers in the world he has said he needs us. With the possibility of a return to Premier league with Rafa and the possibility of a big change with us the fans. We need to get behind the team for the final push YANNNITED
