Newcastle Jets is no strangers to fans of football and they have been attracting crowds of all ages for over twenty five years now. However, many fans do not realize just how much has changed in the modern day. For a start, it is now a much more modernized and modernistic environment with many different venues to choose from when attending matches, such as Tyneside Stadium. Furthermore, there is also a plethora of different entertainment options available in the local area, making matches all the more enjoyable.
For any Newcastle fan to get to appreciate what makes the Jets so special and why they have such loyal supporters is simple; consistency. This club has stood the test of time and is one that has consistently produced results year in, year out. Of course, this has been made possible by the club’s management and it is down to them to continually strive to improve and push on all fronts to get the job done. The fans are a testament to this, as they continually pay season long or short term fees in order to see their team perform to their full potential.
The team have won the premiership twice and the third-placed position was achieved after a thrilling battle against eventual winners Manchester City. Despite this, other teams have come and gone since those days and the current Jets are still favourites to win at their own ground. As a result of their status and what has happened within the team and among the fans, Newcastle fans are regarded to be among the most passionate in the world. This is not only due to the success they enjoy, but it is because they care and show true support for the team.
Fans travel from far and wide to watch matches at Tyneside. This is because of the fact that there is nothing else quite like watching a top flight game at this country’s most famous venue. There is always something happening, whether it is a good game or not. Of course, there are also factors such as weather which have a bearing on whether a match can be successful or not. In the summer months, Newcastle enjoys some of the finest summers in Europe, making it an attraction for supporters of all ages.
A match against their rivals Manchester United will certainly live long in the memory. Many are of the opinion that this is because of the way that Sir Alex Ferguson chose his team. Having picked a side with a great attacking unit made up of stars such as Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, goalsqueer Ronaldo and Coentrao, you would have thought that United would cruise to victory. It was not that easy though, especially once Newcastle were given the lead. Nevertheless, with ten minutes left on the clock, Robin Van Persie converted a superb volley to give Newcastle a deserved lead.
Despite the setback, it must be said that this defeat was only a friendly one. As United prepare for next season’s campaign, they will need to pick themselves up and work on building upon last year’s success. Otherwise, they will risk repeating their downfall against Newcastle. Newcastle are now only four points off leaders Chelsea and have only played one more top-flight game than the Blues.
