NEWCASTLE United fans love nothing more than to eat rice pudding, watch football and wrestling and listen to Geordie star Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, a new study has revealed.

The YouGov study polled a total of 904 Toon fans to reveal what makes Newcastle supporters tick.

It probably isn’t common knowledge that the average Newcastle fan has a hankering for rice pudding but it won’t surprise anyone to see Greggs polling high when it comes to providing savoury and sweet snacks.

A Newcastle fans most likely pet is a dog, while they have a fondness for Adidas clothing and shopping at Morrisons.

Market research firm YouGov has launched the new service that provides profiles based on a huge database of preferences expressed by members of the public.

Outlining different factors, the poll shows everything from the demographics of their fan-base, their personality, their most likely profession, what their personality is like and even what brands they prefer.
