How Much Would You Pay To Guarantee A Newcastle Trophy?

6 years ago

Surveys often need to be treated with great caution and this latest one that claims Newcastle fans are the most committed to the nation team, needs to be…treated with great caution.

Two thousand UK residents were surveyed and asked how much they would pay to guarantee an England World Cup win, that is not to get a match ticket, just how much cash you would pay if that then made sure England triumphed in Brazil.

In the survey by shopping website, the average amount across the country was £143.70 but, when it came to residents of Newcastle, the figure leapt to £261.30.

As most people would accept that the further south you go, the more bothered people generally are about England, it would appear to be a ‘bit’ of dubious ‘research’.

Incidentally, the city where residents would pay the least was Sheffield, coming out at an average of only £7.40.

No surprises that the survey also found that men would pay more than women and that those under 35 would hand over more money than older people.

The more interesting question of course, is what would you pay if it guaranteed Newcastle winning a trophy?

I’m just off to empty my piggy bank…
