Amusing response from Leeds fans to news on Newcastle away match

5 years ago

Leeds fans get the chance of buying a ticket for the Newcastle away game as from this Friday.

Ironically, Wednesday brought news that before a single away fan had snapped up a ticket, Newcastle had sold all home tickets over three weeks before the match.

However, the Leeds fan responded amusingly to the sold out news, some getting a little bit carried away with themselves…

(***Important info before reading on…When Newcastle visited Elland Road it was the first Leeds home league match to sell out for many years. Gates at Elland Road have fallen under twenty thousand for Championship matches this season. Leeds had a crowd of 8,488 when they played Blackburn in the League Cup this season.Newcastle average over fifty one thousand at St James Park in the Championship, almost twice Leeds’ average of twenty six thousand)

Leeds fans react on social media to news of Newcastle selling out for the game on Friday 14 April:

‘You (Newcastle) are only here to watch the Leeds.’

(A Newcastle fan) ‘Yeah, only paid for a season ticket to come watch Leeds.’

‘I’m going, ticking down the days 3 more points on the board.’

‘Leeds always draw the crowd!! Leeds 1-0,  Chris Wood goal.’

‘Your only hear to watch the Leeds!’

‘Weeks to go. 50 odd thou. On sky. Respect to nufc. Incredible support that.’

‘Even more Geordies gutted at the final whistle then.’

‘Premiership fixture, be in top 10 gates of the weekend easy.’

‘Two proper teams, two sets of proper fans, hope both go up!!’

‘We filled your ground for you..we filled your ground for you.’

‘You (Newcastle) have never sold out before, shows what proper football coming too the toon does for ticket sales.’

(A Newcastle fan) ‘Will be our 11th 52,000+ sell out this season. Leeds have sold out 36k ER once in 7 years.’

‘My understanding is that nufc cane to see our trophy cabinet.’

‘Sounds like it’s gonna be a quiet night in the city…’

‘Rubbish club, rubbish history and deluded fans.’

(A Newcastle fan) ‘4 League titles, 6 FA Cups, 1 UEFA Fairs Cup. Your go…’

‘What a game, Leeds fans get to go on an all day drinking session in Toon because of easter.’
