As bad as it is supporting nufc thesedays (and yes it could be a lot worse!) I wonder how much more excited teams outside the top 8 are of the upcoming season, it’s not like any of them have much to get excited about? Maybe the promoted clubs but we should have more than them. Wilson and St. Maximin are the two that keep my interest up, willock too if he comes back.

3 years ago, Leeds & Villa weren’t even on our radar. Now we’re nowhere near them. Sickening.

I get that but there's thousands of football matches in the fixture list. I'm planning to take in some of the 92 this season for the same reasons you've stated (and also just because I fancy seeing some different grounds/places). If you miss live footy you don't have to go to a Newcastle game, so there must be another reason for doing so. And if you're accepting that there's no real point to actually doing so, that's where it just seems like a contradiction. Why willingly have the piss taken out of you? 

 

As much as I agree, there's nothing quite like going away with Newcastle. You won't get the same experience going to watch a lower league team. Obviously it's got next to nowt to do with the football itself.

 

Very little interest in going to SJP any time soon, unless a freebie is on the go.

Shows you how shit the bottom half of the PL is. The fact that we're able to finish 12th doing what we do is madness.

I’ll never not care and I resent myself a lot for it, which in turn makes me resent Ashley/Bruce/PL/aggressive free market capitalism in sports even more. It’s a really grim cycle and not one a 7 year old version of me could have ever anticipated, but at this stage I genuinely wish I had never taken an active interest in football. The bad outweighs the good so massively. Was at an (outdoors!) meet up for a friend’s birthday yesterday and Man U and Liverpool fans were there excitedly talking about the new season, asked who I support and I said “cricket”. It’s just easier at this point.

Where we are now is the norm for all of our younger supporters, the Pardew 5th place finish aside. No wonder they're largely apathetic to our plight. Even 30 year olds will barely remember the two most recent cup finals.

 

With the top 6 teams blowing everyone else out of the water in the transfer market it will continue to be a closed shop, even the league cup is pretty much unobtainable now. I was born in 73 and I've pretty much come to terms with the fact I'll never see us win anything meaningful in my lifetime.

I’ve been to Hearts, Gateshead & Hebburn games the last few seasons before lockdown and it’s far more enjoyable. Less arseholes too, first two sets of fans who literally saved the club from going to the wall, the other ambitious at the level they’re at. Puts our club and fans to shame.

I won't go to any matches, I'll probably still watch televised games and want us to win, but I'll take pleasure seeing the stick Bruce gets when we lose and won't care if we don't win.

 

This is my position as well. 

 

If we win...great. We'll still have a premier team to keep the Saudis interested.

 

If we lose, well it's to be expected when you have an underfunded squad led by the least respected manager in the game today.

Bought a ticket for Man City v Arsenal, think it’s second game of the season. May as well go and see some good football. Loved Spurs when I went there. 
 

Guess I’ll become one of those people who ‘doesn’t really support a team’ :anguish:

The "Deluded geordies all expect champions league football every year"  tag doesn't really add up does it.

 

Apart from a handful of seasons in the '90s and '00s it never has done.

Must admit it's got to the stage when I'm visiting this forum less and less and not reading most threads either when I do. Just totally devoid of anything NUFC related at the moment and I've got no doubt this will get even worse when the season starts. For the first time in my life I literally have no interest in NUFC full stop - sad sad times.

Have barely logged in, never mind posted since the end of the season, so just noticed this thread now. I was actually just thinking earlier how I think I'm just going to try and follow the Premier League as a 'neutral' this season, so that kind of ties in with this thread. I was another 10 for what it's worth.

 

I may have given up on Newcastle, and the Premier League is dubious at best, but I don't want to give up on football altogether, so unlike in previous years where I might have wanted a club that I considered 'smaller' not to win the FA Cup if they reached the latter stages, or say West Ham to qualify for the Champions League last season, I probably will want lesser sides to do well this season, upset the stranglehold of the 'big 6' where possible, and not worry about Newcastle's stock falling further behind clubs where it really should be higher.

 

Absolutely shite situation, but I think that's better than just ignoring it completely. I will still want Newcastle to do as well as they can, but definitely going to try and move away from the one club perspective. I'll see how it goes anyway :lol:
