Lots of Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter following an update to emerge from the Tyneside club following a breakthrough in the Premier League’s safe standing rules.

On Wednesday, it was announced safe standing was to be trialled at selected Premier and Championship stadiums this season.

Would you like to see safe standing at St. James'?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, The Chronicle has reported the Tyneside club have opted out of the trial phase and will instead monitor the trials at other Premier clubs.

The news comes after 25 years of standing at top-flight stadiums not being permitted, and it seems these Toon fans were left disappointed that their club were not looking to participate in the trials.

What exactly did these Toon fans have to say?

“This club is a disgrace.”

“Imagine. My. Shock.”
“This club gets every decision from a PR perspective wrong, it’s quite impressive.”
“The club is dead”
“Wonder why that is. Absolute joke from top to bottom”

The report states the Toon’s hierarchy believe introducing the scheme would cause issues with some of their existing season ticket holders who may request a change of seat due to the safe standing area.

It is believed Aston Villa, Liverpool and Hotspur will be among those to trial the scheme in the top flight, but these Toon fans certainly seem frustrated by their club’s decision not to participate.

    I just don’t understand, why nufc fans attend games which improve Ashleys attempt to become the top tat seller of the epl.
    Using rubbish gear with and old retired former top brand name tabs attached to rubbish brands, the man has no feelings.
    I expect some fear losing their seat’s, but still attend horrible games, that are so bad it takes a full week to get over it, ffs boycott these games and spoil his plans , you idiots.
