jeff stellingNewcastle United fans have been named as the second most vocal in the Barclays Premier League in a new survey of 1,500 fans conducted by the Carlsberg Fan Squad, being pipped to the number one spot by Manchester United, with Liverpool coming in third.

This emphasises the great support that Alan Pardew’s men have and it will be interesting to see the two loudest sets of fans face off at Old Trafford when Man United host Newcastle on Boxing Day in just over a week’s time.

Last year of course, Newcastle left Manchester with all three points thanks to a clean sheet and a solitary strike from Frenchman Yohan Cabaye.

Other renowned fans that you expect to be near the top of the table, Crystal Palace and West Ham United, were fourth and eighth respectively.

Newcastle’s next visitors to St James’ Park, arch-rivals Sunderland, were nowhere to be seen in the top 10, languishing down in 14th, much like they are in the Premier League currently.

Here’s the top 10 in full…

1 Manchester United
2 Newcastle United
3 Liverpool
4 Crystal Palace
5 Chelsea
6 Manchester City
7 Arsenal
8 West Ham United
9 Southampton
10 Stoke City
