Bizarre love-in for Newcastle United fans from other clubs’ supporters after Friday night
Newcastle United fans enjoyed themselves on Friday night.
Yet another away game rescheduled to make it as awkward as possible to get to, only for Newcastle United fans to quickly snap up all the tickets, with over three thousand filling the away section.
Considering Newcastle had won less away games (only two) than anybody outside the relegation zone and the match was on live TV, it is all a bit mad. Especially when the general perception beforehand was that Newcastle are safe from relegation and nothing really to play for.
It ended up being a great performance and win on the pitch.
Whilst off it, the travelling Newcastle United fans were in tip top form.
