Not heard of anyone getting scammed yet, which is possibly quite fortunate. Blag tickets + pdf print-at-home tickets for a football match of this stature is a recipe for disaster.

Yeah, I saw a few people saying on twitter that Barca stewards were taking legit tickets off people, and selling them on.

It was bad because we have a lot of idiots following us who don’t know how to behave in public!

It was only my second time travelling (Madrid in god knows when the first)

I enjoyed it, enjoyed the city, the weather, watched the game with locals in a bar and came home happy apart from the result of course

Will try and do a group game next season where there will be less idiots

That's one of the reasons why I swerved but the main one was it was too close to getting home from Porto for me to put my graft in to get my dough together. Spanish bizzies was in there too. From the stuff I've seen on youtube and that all you needed was to put a few England tops on some of them and you'd have the full set. I call it Footie Tourism .

I was in the Gallowgate with the home support. It was so hard to not celebrate or show your emotions. I dare say the lads around me sussed I was a Red. Sadly, many Reds in the home sections didn’t show a degree of respect for the home support and got quite a few digs and were thrown out.

The lot in the corporate seats would have been lynched if they had been anywhere else in the ground rather than posh seats where no one could get at them.

That said, every Geordie I spoke to over the day wanted us to win the league rather than City.

I got chatting to a lad who was taking donations for their food banks. He was telling me that SOS had donated £250 earlier in the day 👍 The lad was a ST of many a year who won’t go whilst Ashley is there. He was going to check in his donations and toddle off home. Sad.

Surprised we were heard that much on TV. Thought we were quite loud at times but people seemed nervous and that dampened it a bit. We were nervous in the second half after it went to 2-2 and Mo went off. You just wondered if that was the end of the road. Another season it would have been, but good on them. Great substitution as it turned out :D Though hope Mo is ok

Didn't hear any sound from our balcony section though, can't think why! ::)

Unbelievably Ashley/ the Club allowed Liverpool fans to purchase tickets for a section of the Platinum Club. Disgraceful by our club, I understand that some families left as they felt intimidated by a large group of away fans, a lot on the drink, in the most expensive part of the ground other than the boxes. I’ve no issue with these fans but our hierarchy have took the piss out of our ST holders in and around those seats.

Apparently the first the match stewards knew of it was the pre match briefing.

Could you imagine the geordies in the posh seats, bet some of them secretly found it quite amusing,  a cut above the usual library like atmosphere in such class surrounding . No harm done, no offence caused, a few of our lads got in fair and square and enjoyed themselves accordingly!

Oh, trust me, big offence was caused. The lads around me in the Gallowgate would have taken matters into their own hands if they’d been able to.

They did, however, understand that their club, and in particular Ashley’s love of cash, are culpable in this episode.

My mind went back to a Celtic UEFA Cup game several years ago. There were loads of them in the Kemlyn. They behaved in the same way, some would say worse. I, and others near me, were sorely tempted to take matters into our own hands that day too. Thankfully, by that time, I’d learnt the errors of previous such indiscretions, and merely turned the other cheek  ;D

Away euro fans are always in the middle of the Upper Centenary. Think the club has to provide a certain amount of corp/hospitality type tickets and that’s where they plonk them. Including when we’ve played the likes of Chelsea.

I was in the main stand for that game and surrounded by Celtic fans. They weren't shy about celebrating but no bother really, we shook their hands at the final whistle. Just rubbish that our own fans had obviously sold their tickets on, which is what's happened here too.

Maybe if Newcastle gave us our full allocation, this sort if thing, and also the many fans in the other parts of he ground might not happen.  There were bucket loads of empty seats in the away end.  I know some will stand with mates elsewhere, and I know there will be some no shows (bring back the exchange 😊) but where I was stood actually felt sparcely populated.

I can understand why Newcastle fans would be pissed off. If that was Anfield and a bunch of opposition fans were openly jumping around in the home end after a 88th minute winner, I think we'd be the same. The Hospitality areas at St.James's are apparently always dual use, but club colours are banned. I think it's just the combination of a night time saturday kick-off in a City known for it's welcoming drinking culture on a Bank Holiday weekend when a bunch of travelling fans will have been sat on coaches for 4 hours or so made it an almost certainty some shenanigans might happen. Add in the fact that when the tickets went on sale there was a chance we could have claimed the title this weekend (pending the correct results) and there's no way you couldn't have foreseen that Reds would do anything to get in the stadium, correct end or not. I hope they don't crack down too hard on the geordies who sold the tickets to our lads and lasses, the temptation to make some money back after a season of paying out in a dead rubber for Newcastle is understandable.

We were saying that at the match. Why have a rule if you don't enforce it. 3 seasons and we are still up in the Gods. Given we walk with their fans to the turnstiles, they have no excuse. We could be just below where we are now for a start.

There were Celtic fans all over the ground that night. I was in 202 on the Kop and could see a few near us. But when they scored it was unbelievable how many of them were celebrating in all 4 stands. I’d say there was more in the home end than in the away end.

Might be a nice idea to start any discussion for them to put the away fans pitch side as every other club has to do.

Ridiculous that they still get away with this on safety grounds. Coming out of the away end on Saturday there was a welcoming committee of young Geordies not too pleased with us singing ‘Liverpool top of the league’. Don’t see how putting us lower down would make any difference.

They gave clubs time to sort it, I think thats up this season...maybe Newcastle didn't think the would still be in PL now?

So the rule is bullshit cause as far as I can see Newcastle are the only club it affected as every other club is either one tier or has pitch side anyway.Sunderland are the only other club I can think of that it might affect and if they ever get back in the PL I bet they get a permanent exemption like Newcastle.
