Newcastle Fans Hit Back

Reading emails from Newcastle fans is not the ideal way to start a day.

But that’s exactly what I’ve been doing for the past hour or so. Why, you ask?

Because of this article.

I’ve received a few dozen emails so far telling me why Newcastle has such great support amongst the fans despite not having won much in the last 50 years.

Conclusion – Newcastle have a very passionate group of fans and in many ways are the perfect example of what true fans are like – supporting their team through thick and thin and celebrating the smallest of victories.

Imagine if Newcastle actually won something – we’d never hear the end of it 🙂

I wish I could publish a few of the emails – but I’m really not in the mood for sorting through them again, so maybe another time.

One thing I want to mention though – I agree with this article’s basic premise – that Newcastle has such massive support because of its geographical location.

However, that does not make them bad fans or make Newcastle any less of a club.

Man, I need a dose of Man Utd very soon…too much talk about other clubs makes me dizzy.
