TOON FANS PACK THE ANFIELD ROAD END IN 1984

News that NUFC have sold just 850 tickets for wor visit to Anfield next month should come az ne surprise!

A extortionate £52 to get in, restricted view tickets @ £47 <(for the 'view' of the back of somebodys heed!), a Munday neet fixture which iz live on the telly and of course disillusionment and the 'fear factor' of gettin' a reet hammerin' off 'The Liverbirds' are the main reasons for this boycott!
We had an estimated 15,000 to 17,000 @ Anfield for a Friday neet live FA Cup telly fixture some 30 odd years ago and now just 850 diehards are plannin' on makin' the trip to Morseyside for this one!

How times and expectations change!

PS: The Toon fans that day, sang: "We've got more fans than you, Liverpool!--Liverpool!"
The Kop replied: "We've got more goals than you, Newcastle!---Newcastle!" <(they beat us 4-0!)
