Newcastle fans have received their latest accolade.

A survey of over 10,000 football supporters has found which away followings are the best in the Premier League.

The away support of Bournemouth ended up rock bottom, with Burnley and Brighton just above them.

However, at the very top are the Newcastle fans who travel away.

Leaving Man Utd and Liverpool fans some way behind in second and third.

No rational person would argue that the atmosphere has been anything but appalling at St James Park overall this season, Mike Ashley ensuring that.

The fact he was forced into handing out 10,000 free season tickets to protect the ‘integrity’ of his retail empire advertising is proof of that.

However, away games are invariably a class day out and Newcastle fans going with the age-old philosophy of determined to do their best to have a good time no matter what the result.
