Just shows how far we've fallen.

Superb manager and even better human being.

Same - I really miss the days when the cheeky smile of the man in charge of our club would make you think that everything would be alright

Watching those video clips, listening to SBR. Oh, I cry when I realise those days are so long gone.
What a joy it was, those times of hope, expectation, amazing achievements and glorious football. Managed by a true gentleman. A real Geordie. Real.
Those days, and those with KK lifted me.
It was, literally, the time of my life. NUFC made my life complete.

And now.......Bruce? Ashley? I despair.

One day...one day.....I hope to feel those days again. Please, God, please???
Cut me and I bleed black and white

In fact, all of it's just great. The way he talks about football, it's just so honest and passionate and positive. And that glimmer of determination right at the very end too. The way he builds up the game, builds up his team, puts the opponent on a pedastal but not too highly;  so visibly excited and proud.

We didn't do badly that game either. Got let down by one lad switching off.

"my club".
john gibson in the chronicle this afternoon;
"John Carver has talked of playing two up top in an effort to score goals, tactically be more direct to grind out points, and just about every other possibility known to man or beast. They are the ramblings of a drowning desperado."

That clip of him showing Lineker around the place is literally one of my favourite bits of 'NUFC' ever put on film. Sounds a bit over the top but I don't think it is. A magnificent new stadium, a wonderful manager, at a brilliant time for the club, justifiably beaming with pride at how great a club it was. Obviously we weren't 12 points clear at the top of the league but for those, like me, who didn't live through the Keegan years with any real sentience, it's as great a peak as we're likely to experience - and that clip just summed it up. If the architraves were spectacular then you knew the team was brilliant. And it was.

Aye. He was proud of the club and gave everyone something to proud of.

Dread to think of the state of some of those areas in the ground now. Oak doors replaced a shitty old curtain, no doubt.
