    Angry Newcastle United Fans Reaction To Latest Defeat

    This article shares some of the reaction we have had on The UTD111 Forum to the latest dismal show against Leicester. This is the edited version – with all the swear words taken out and it’s still not pretty folks, but hard to argue with the strong views expressed. “Another brilliant performance. 11 strangers playing hoof ball, with an absolute idiot in defence who didn’t think 3 gifted goals against Manure was enough over the Christmas period, so thought he would hand out a couple […]

    Reaction: Newcastle United Free Season Tickets

    Yesterday, Newcastle United made around 10,000 “half” extra season tickets available to existing season ticket holders on a first come, first served basis. Cue an online scramble by thousands of fans looking to take advantage of this early christmas present. The tickets were quickly snapped up and enable the new holders to watch every home game remaining this season, from Everton on 28th December for nothing. The decision to offer the free tickets seems to have come following a relatively poor (for United, anyway) crowd […]
