“Absolute disgrace,” “Top of the pops” – These Newcastle fans react to tweet from NUST member

A lot of Newcastle United fans are stunned to find out that they are top of the table for most away midweek and Monday games – which seems ridiculous considering how far away we are from most of the other Premier League teams.

Burnley is our closest away game – yet the TV companies like Sky and BT think that it is ok to put us on away either midweek or on a Monday night.

The table shows that we have played just one Monday night game at home and 14 away, and the NUFC Supporters Trust are determined to do something about this – with them deeming this unacceptable.

Are we treated unfairly by the TV broadcasters?





We travel to Aston Villa on Monday night, another four-hour journey when many of our fans will have work in the morning, surely it is time for the TV companies to start spreading out the fixtures more evenly.

Certainly, these Newcastle fans agree.

See the best of the reaction below.

A lot of Toon fans are fuming at these stats and demand change.

Other Newcastle fans see it as a compliment to our away support.
