NEWCASTLE United fans are the most likely in the Premier League to be meat- eaters, a poll reveals.
A poll of 2,000 footy fans – 100 from each of the 20 Prem teams – found that 92% were meat eaters.

Some 97 per cent of the Toon Army are carnivores, a survey of the top tier teams’ supporters says.
West Ham fans had the smallest proportion of meat-eaters at 87 per cent, said plant-based food firm Future Farm’s poll of 100 from each Prem side.
Newcastle supporter Richard Pollard, 34, said: “I went veggie last year as my partner’s one and she’s been on at me. I’ve not fallen off the meat wagon yet, but I do crave a bacon sandwich.”
“I’d better stop, I’m torturing myself.”
Future Farm claimed carnivores were “on their way out” and being veggie was “becoming the new normal”.
The poll comes after we told this week how Toon superfan James Longworth, 40, turned his loo into a mini St James’ Park.
