With rights come responsibilities and there was a great idea to get all the ‘singers’ congregating in the East Stand/Gallowgate corner to generate some atmosphere.
For the most part this worked, particularly taking into account a desperately disappointing thirty thousand crowd overall.
As always though it only takes a handful to spoil it for everybody else and now I’m afraid Newcastle United are sure to look dimly in terms of supporting any such ‘singing section’ again.
A few people lit flares and while it can look spectacular and is common place abroad, the simple fact is that Newcastle United will be punished for it.
We’re all losers in the long run. Geordie boys taking the p*** indeed.
