The results after we asked Newcastle United fans how optimistic ahead of 2021/22 season…?

6 months ago

The question we were asking Newcastle United fans on Sunday was: ‘As things stand, how optimistic are you 4 weeks ahead of 2021/22 Newcastle United season?’

We asked the supporters to forget about what might or might not happen ahead of the season kicking off.

Or indeed by the time the transfer window ends.

Simply think about how you feel as things currently stood.

Mike Ashley the owner.

No Newcastle United takeover.

Steve Bruce as Head Coach.

Not a single new signing.

Not a single sale (not sold Wilson, Dubravka, Almiron, ASM etc).

Fans set to return to St James Park, though waiting for final confirmation.

We asked…please measure your optimism as things currently stand at St James Park. Please rate from 0-10.

Where 10 is you couldn’t imagine being more optimistic about this Newcastle United season under any other circumstances, down to 0 where you couldn’t imagine feeling less optimistic than you do at this moment in time.

We asked Newcastle United fans: ‘As things stand how optimistic are you 4 weeks ahead of 2021/22 Newcastle United season?’ (***Please note, most votes were cast BEFORE NUFC lost to sixth tier York on Sunday afternoon…)

0 – 38%

1 – 17%

2 – 17%

3 – 13%

4 – 7%

5 – 4%

6 – 2%

7 – 1%

8 – 1%

9 – 0%

10 – 0%

Over half (55%) the Newcastle United fans voting either 0 or 1 out of 10 as they ‘look forward’ to the new season.

So 85% rating their optimism as 3 out of 10 or less.

Only 4% saying 6 out of 10 or higher…
