Two fallen giants in the Championship, Leeds and Newcastle’s meetings this season were always going to be tasty, highly-anticipated affairs, and with their next clash falling on Easter Weekend, it’s fair to say Transfer Tavern regulars are excited.
The Magpies appear to be on course for automatic promotion while the Whites are looking to stay in the play-off spots, so this game could have major repercussions for both Rafa Benitez and Garry Monk, which will add to the tension and drama on the St James’ Park turf.

And this match will be watched by a capacity 52,354 crowd, according to the Tynesiders’ official Twitter account. The club announced today that all tickets have been sold with around a month to go until the kick-off, so it’s sure to be quite the atmosphere in the North East.
With both sets of supporters pretty robust in their opinions, there was always going to be a reaction to this, and Leeds fans have been in fine form with their replies…
