Newcastle Fans Do Their Bit For Benfica Home Match

9 years ago

The last gasp win against Fulham has given that extra daylight between Newcastle United and the relegation zone, plus really set things up for United to have a right go on Thursday to reverse that two goal deficit.

The fans have also done their bit as St.James’ Park has now sold out for the visit of Benfica, a great tribute to the supporters and sensible ticket pricing.

Alan Pardew has called for the fans to be ‘intelligent’ on Thursday night, as he believes that if Newcastle charge forward then the Portuguese league leaders will simply pick Newcastle off.

That might be a fair reflection on how Newcastle need to approach the match but what is most definitely needed is the passion of the fans.

Until United belatedly got going against Fulham the atmosphere was dire, a combination of the usual lack of a focus for the singing and obvious nerves with the important of the result.

There will be no excuses on Thursday night as with fans being able to choose where they sit, the ‘singers’ can and will congregate and spark off the rest of the ground.

The match result cannot be guaranteed but the fans can make sure they give it everything and back the team come what may.
