Newcastle United – It’s A Sellout!

12 years ago

We’ve been spoilt in recent times in terms of crowds, until the last few years a full house at St.James’ Park was taken for granted.

These days, for various reasons, we haven’t got that luxury and I must admit to getting a buzz when I hear that a home match has sold out.

Great news that the last tickets for Wednesday night have gone.

So what if it buys mike Ashley a few extra roulette chips, as a fan what matters to me is being part of a throbbing mass of people all United in a common cause.

So we have a full house, a night match, Manchester United as opposition. Also, they are coming off the back of a Blackburn defeat, with injuries and then disciplinary problems with Rooney to deal with. At our end we have Ba and Tiote probably playing their last match before going off to Africa and hopefully looking to sign off in the right manner.

What could possibly go wrong…?

Well we all know what COULD go wrong but let’s all get our heads down and get behind the team and manager, a win against the Mancs is always sweet but it could be so important to our season in so many ways.
