Truly staggering fact before the Burton game shows Newcastle United’s fan following is not something to be taken lightly

With the end of the season drawing ever closer, Newcastle United certainly looks destined to be plying their trade in the Premier League next season. Rafa Benitez’s men currently sit comfortably at second with an eight point advantage over their nearest rivals Reading who occupy a distant third in the league standings.

Pivotal to their exceptional form over the season has been the performances of key players such as Dwight Gayle, Matt Ritchie and Jonjo Shelvey to name a few. Benitez’s man management and tactical acumen has also been an important factor in the team’s ascent to the top.

The Geordie fans on their part have also been impeccable with their unflinching support for the team throughout the season, a fact highlighted by Benitez on several occasions this season.

A most recent stat from the club’s official site just goes on to speak volumes of the fans’ commitment towards the club.

For the first time since the 1951/52 season, the season’s attendance at St.James Park will pass the one million mark. Quite an achievement for a club plying in the Championship.
