Love Is…Watching Newcastle United

8 years ago

Alan Pardew has struck a blow for good old fashioned prejudices with his views on exactly who supports Newcastle United these days.

Trying to get the excitement growing and extra bodies through the turnstiles this is what the manager had to say;

“I have got to be honest, maybe the Geordies are a bit too romantic this year. Maybe they need to dump the missus and get to the match instead, or bring her as well!.

The crowd is going to be a bit lower than we would like but in my experience when we’ve had thirty or thirty five thousand, they’re as noisy as fifty thousand. (yesterday we carried an article exploring NUFC’s Euro crowds [intlink id=”24493″ type=”post”]Are Newcastle Fans Really In Love With European Football?[/intlink])You get the hardcore and they’re brilliant.

We’re trying to help our fans (tickets only £15 and £5 concessions) as we know life is difficult for everybody outside our trade”.

So Alan, obviously the only females in St.James’ Park are those lucky enough to be dragged there by the man (or woman?!!) in their lives.

Well Alan ‘Caveman’ Pardew, I’m knocking off work early today to have a good session on the drink in Rosie’s, The Newcastle Arms and The Strawberry with a few of the lasses before we go to the match…and for your information, as a special treat I’ve left my non-football supporting boyfriend Jason with a big pile of ironing.

Howay the lads…and lasses!
