The club revealed that the match will be shown live on BT Sport and will take place on Friday, 12 March with an 8 PM kick-off time.
This post then gathered a lot of replies from Toon fans who were quick to share their thoughts on this latest update.
So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say in response to this news about their Premier League fixture against Villa?
“Thanks for ruining my weekend before its even begun”
“Rather it not be shown at all tbh if that’s okay lads”
“8pm on a Friday, well that’s that weekend well and truly bruced! Sack. Steve. Bruce.”
“Another Friday night ruined”
“There looks like the weekend ruined before it’s even begun. And also, ANOTHER 8PM KICK OFF? I already have trouble sleeping to begin with. Do they do this on purpose to wreck my evenings?”
“Sick and tired of 8PM kick offs”
Looking at the replies to this post from the club, it seems that these Newcastle fans aren’t happy with this date for the Villa clash and aren’t particularly looking forward to it anyway.
Will Newcastle avoid relegation this season?
Given how Newcastle are currently sat in 17th place in the Premier League table on 25 points, three points clear of the relegation zone, it’s understandable why these Toon fans aren’t feeling confident for this game against Dean Smith’s side.
