1 year ago

What do fans of Premier League clubs think about what has been going on at their club and their hopes / wishes for the 2022/23 season?

Well, The Athletic have carried out a big survey of thousands of their paying subscribers.

The Athletic asking the fanbases of all 20 Premier League clubs – ‘Are you feeling hope or fear’ ahead of the 2022/23 season.

For Newcastle United fans…

Well, the difference from twelve months ago couldn’t be more stark.

Newcastle fans going from a position of only Everton fans having less hope, to now only two fanbases having more hope than NUFC supporters on the direction their club is heading in.
