Newcastle SELL OUT next Prem match against Tottenham as 52,000 flock to St James' Park following £300m Saudi takeover

NEWCASTLE have already sold out their next home fixture against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Magpies are used to passionate crowds coming through the gates at St James' Park.

But amid frustration with previous owner Mike Ashley and manager Steve Bruce, the Toon had yet to sell out their famous old home this season.

Following yesterday's £300million Saudi takeover being confirmed, however, fans have flocked back in their droves to secure tickets for their next match.

Newcastle's last home game, a 1-1 draw with Leeds United, drew a crowd of 50,407.

While their 2-2 draw with Southampton back in August saw an attendance of 44,017 show up.

Against Spurs, people can expect the full 52,000 and the rest to pack into St James' Park and back their team.

Despite the takeover, the Geordie faithful will have to cheer on the same set of players that are currently winless in the Premier League until at least January.


But whether or not Steve Bruce will be on the touchline remains to be seen.

Amanda Staveley refused to give assurances that Bruce would remain in his post.

And he himself has admitted that he wouldn't be surprised to be relieved of his duties – with the likes of Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and even Antonio Conte being linked with the role.
