The definitive way of working out which Premier League team has the most passionate support is simple: how extremely would you inconvenience an animal to show your undying love?
Maybe you'd prod an otter with a feather duster. Perhaps you'd tickle a gnu's beard with the rubber end of a pencil. You might even whisper derogatory quips straight into the ears of a llama.
Would you punch a horse for your club? Now that's how you show passion.
As reported by the Daily Mail, this unfortunate event took place after Newcastle's 3-0 home loss to local rivals Sunderland. Even so, the majority of Magpies fans are positively spirited and always ready to cheer their team in an non-offensive way (i.e. not using your fists on equine).
Inside England, Newcastle's support often stacks up against the more successful clubs and creates a cauldron of atmosphere come match day.
