With the World Cup kicking off this weekend and Newcastle’s next competitive match a Carabao Cup clash with Bournemouth next month, I got thinking what Toon fans would prefer.
Watching England lift the World Cup in Qatar or seeing Eddie Howe’s Mags win the Carabao Cup this season?
I put this question to Newcastle supporters on Twitter and, after just over 4,600 votes, the results were pretty emphatic.
As you can see below, 84% of voters preferred Newcastle to win the EFL Cup over England lifting the World Cup in Qatar (16% of votes), suggesting the vast majority would pick club over country every day of the week.
Here’s the final results, along with some interesting responses from Toon fans on Twitter:
Not even close. Give me that Carabao Cup – @thisisnagy
England win world Cup because can see Newcastle winning something better than Carabao Cup – @JamesBish78
I’d rather Newcastle win a corner than England win the World Cup – @AyJay1892
Who voted England? We’ve not won a trophy since the stone age we can’t keep saying we’re a massive club if we don’t start winning a few trophies – @Joesph36029246
Club before country….anytime, anywhere – @Lordford85
Premier League or Champions League and you have a fair argument but World Cup over the Carabao Cup every day of the week for me – @CharlieBennett
