I lived through it but I have no memory of the milburn stand been built it was like it just appeared one game

I remember. I also remember sitting in the old wooden west stand that was there prior to that, one such time watching the might of Frank Pingel back head the ball into the net for a draw with the best team in the land and Europe at the time, Liverpool. If you want to get an idea of how the first version of the milburn looked before L7, look at Watford's main stand, whoever designed ours made it an exact copy of theirs, it looks tiny compared to what is there now. And yes I still believe we should have moved to castle leazes back in the day, f*** the protesters. We wouldn't have the issues we have now with the lack of expansion possibilities.

My first ever match was the renaming of that stand. Jackie Milburn's wife was on the pitch, my ticket stub says "West Stand" (only cost £4.50!) and we beat Ipswich 2-1. Dad made us leave at 1-1 to avoid the crowds with me being 5 and I remember the roar of the crowd as we were getting into the car.

Is Newcastle United closed, no news on any incoming transfers, no news on any outgoing transfers, no news on any refurbishment of the stadium or training ground, no news on Rafa and I can't even go and renew my season ticket.

When Ashley goes on holiday the club effectively shuts the doors.

They are in the top secret bunker, the monitor bunker which is located 3 meters deep in the bore hole. They wanted it deeper from the beginning but the drilling company didn't need any football socks.

I just picture Taylor spotting him out of his hotel window and shouting "Gini!" over and over as he sprints down the beach after him, wearing his sushi t shirt. "Remember me Gini? It's Tayls, from Newcastle. Steven Taylor, number 27."

:lol: to me that just shows how soft football has got as a sport. There's only one remotely "dirty" player in that whole team, Shawcross, and even he kept his nose relatively clean last season!!
Log on to the N-O forum.
Check the transfer thread in the vague hope we might be going to spend some money, get p*ssed off.
Move to the Mike Ashley thread because I'm p*ssed off, get more p*ssed off.
Come to this thread to cheer myself up a bit.
Leave.

No.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.

Why do Arsenal look at our staff and decide that it's our goalkeeping coaching that is excelling? :lol:

Two international keepers and one who's got the potential to be what he wants. As good a set of keepers to come out of any Academy tbh.

Injuries f***ed Krul over. Forster was just never going to stay once the club decided Krul was the one they'd plumped for.

Keepers and England songs (Take Me Home, last tournament and Mbemba song last night). Perhaps that is what we’re good at.

Were the players back training today? Normally the socials make a big song and dance about it, but there has been nothing today.
