‘We are completely un-United’, ‘Desperation’ – Many NUFC fans dejected after club announcement

Plenty of Newcastle United fans have responded on Twitter to the news that season ticket holders are entitled to a free half-season ticket.

With the club currently struggling for attendances – Sunday’s 2-1 win over Southampton had just 42,303 people through the gate – a free ticket to cover 10 home Premier League games will be offered to all season ticket holders, beginning from December 28.

According to BBC, the tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis from Tuesday.

Despite it seeming a gesture of goodwill, there are plenty of supporters who are far from happy with the offer. If Twitter is anything to go by, many feel as if it is disrespectful to those who have turned up every week during difficult years under Mike Ashley, while those who have decided against not coming get rewarded through this scheme.

Do you get behind this idea from the club?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Below are a selection of fans who are pretty disappointed by the news, as you can tell by their responses below…

Despite the lack of numbers at St James’, things are going pretty well on the pitch under Steve Bruce. In fact, at this stage, probably better than they were under Rafael Benitez, which is rather ironic considering that his departure is probably one of the main catalysts for people not turning up.

The Toon are currently 11th in the league after back-to-back wins and will try and extend that to three when they face Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.
