Narrow Majority Of Fans Believe Wonga Deal Good For Newcastle

9 years ago

At the end of each season we run a fans’ poll in our magazine, asking readers to vote on all kinds of topics to do with Newcastle United.

We then collate the thousands of votes and publish all the results in the summer special (out on 8th June – pre-order in our online shop – only £3) of our magazine.

Contributing to those totals, each day we’ll be asking you to vote via the website on a single question, we’ll leave it open for 24 hours and then let you know what the website voting has been.

Yesterday we asked you about the sponsorship deal with Wonga, the pay day loans company who will have their names on our shirts next season and who are stadium sponsors as well.

Much has been said since the news was revealed but taking everything into account, we wondered how fans felt now and whether overall it was good for the club, the question phrased as;

Is The Wonga Deal Good For Newcastle United?

The voting has given us figures of 57% saying Yes and 43% No. Every fan will have looked at this in a different way but taking all things into account the majority of fans appear to think the overall deal is a positive.

However, before anybody starts patting themselves on the back at Wonga and Newcastle United, when 43% think it is the wrong move then it can’t be claimed as some great victory, I think you could describe the deal as looking like a score draw at the minute.

Thanks to the thousands of you who voted and watch out for our next Fans’ Poll question coming up shortly.
