BLOG: Capo’s Call

A revolution has begun. The tide has changed. The culture of the players, the fans, and of our club has shifted. The city finally has a team that will give their all to play for the shirt. Newcastle’s football club is becoming the pride of this city, and while transformations take place on the pitch it is also the Squadron’s time to shine.

To the Squadron faithful, you know what I expect. You know what this revolution means. You know how much we have given to this point. This coming Saturday we welcome the Wanderer’s into our backyard, our home. We know how highly they think of themselves, and how little they think of us.

All I ask from you is to show them exactly what the Squadron is about. Sing loud, sing proud. Encourage others to do the same. WE create the atmosphere at OUR home. This is our week to step up. This is our time. We can trust the players to give their all on the pitch, we must give our all off it.

To our wider supporter base, join us! The Squadron can not achieve all our goals without your support. Help us to make our home a fortress!

Those fans that wish to, can join us in Bay60. Ticket conversion is FREE for existing Members from where ever you normally sit and can be done at the Member Services window on the left side of the western stand gates. Non-members can pre-purchase their tickets via Ticketmasters website, or via the Bay 60 Ticket Sales window on the right side of the western stand gates.

Numbers in Bay 60 will always create a better atmosphere and we welcome anyone willing to join. A few rules apply:

  • Your view may be obstructed, it is part of the fun
  • Singing is a must, the louder the better
  • Listen to the Capo

For those of you who would prefer to remain in your own seat, I have a secret for you. You can be part of the Squadron from where you sit. Bay60 is the 1%, you are the other ninety nine. What you do from where you sit is what will make the difference on match day. Join us from your bay, and encourage those around you to do the same!

Our club has given us something to sing for, something to be passionate about. It is our turn to return the favour, it is our turn to show exactly how much this Club means to us. The next two weeks will have significant consequences to the history of our club. Both on field and off it we have suffered in recent years, now is the time to relive our former glory and show the country what Newcastle is all about. This city deserves a successful football team, and with it passionate supporters. Let us all do our part to achieve this.
