Yesterday talkSPORT allowed Michael Chopra to go onto Alan Brazil’s breakfast show and express the feelings of a lot of Newcastle fans.
Danny Mills, quite frankly, embarrassed himself this morning by showing that he is not educated enough to talk about Newcastle.
Mills, first of all, got the capacity of the stadium wrong saying that St James’s Park holds 55,000 when it holds 52,405 – not a major error but it gives some insight into how uneducated Mills is on Newcastle.
He then claimed that Toon fans expect too much and feel they should be in the top six – a quick look through the replies on Twitter will show that there are barely any Newcastle fans who think they belong in the top six.
That claim comes through a lack of research and does not reflect accurately what a lot of Newcastle fans want – which is a club that at least attempts to compete in the league and is not merely happy to survive.
Then there are his claims on Bournemouth doing well on a low budget – the Cherries have a net spend of £151m since they returned to the Premier League including breaking their transfer record four times.
Mills, in a minute, managed to make a series of untrue statements about both Newcastle and Bournemouth and it shows how little he knows about Newcastle United.
