How do Newcastle United’s home attendances compare to clubs around Europe?

It has year of contrasting fortunes for Newcastle United supporters.

Next month will mark the one-year anniversary of the PIF-led takeover at St James Park, as Mike Ashley’s turbulent ownership was finally brought to a close.

After years of under-investment and a lack of ambition, the Gallowgate faithful have been reinvigorated by the events of the last 12 months as the club’s new owners look to build on and off the pitch.

The appointment of Eddie Howe as successor to Steve Bruce and a successful venture into the January transfer market played a significant part of United’s successful battle against relegation and their race away from the bottom three to secure a mid-table spot.

The momentum has continued into the new season as Howe and his new-look side have been backed by United supporters in their numbers.

NewcastleWorld takes a look at the latest figures.
