In an exclusive interview with This Is Futbol, Steve Bull, who made 561 appearances for Wolves, has claimed that Newcastle United have suffered the most with not having any fans in stadiums this season.
Steve Bruce’s side have struggled for consistency this season and find themselves six points and one place above the bottom three, helped by the fact they’ve picked up four points from their previous two fixtures.
Would Newcastle have performed better with fans?
Speaking on why fans make such a difference and how Newcastle have suffered the most not having their supporters inside St James’ Park, Bull told This Is Futbol:
“There’s nothing worse than when you go up to Newcastle and there’s an empty stadium because when that’s buzzing up there it’s really something. So I think out of the teams in the Premier League they’ve missed out on not having a crowd the most.
“Once those fans get behind you, because I’ve heard it before from when I’ve played there, it can be really scary so I think they’ve really missed out on that.”
