OK. So we had one of these on the old board AGES ago, and since GC is short on stickies at present, I think we should also have one on here (but slightly different, I might add). Basic premise of this obviously stolen from toontastic dot net™, just so they don’t sue me or whatever.

Basically you (YOU) have to answer the questions poised by myself, to the best of your ability and/or knowledge. Easy as that. You can also write a bit more about yourself afterwards, if you really want to.

Right then amigos, the questions are as follows:

REAL NAME: Adam
AGE: 30
BIRTHPLACE: Iowa, USA
WHEREABOUTS: Iowa, USA
JOB: Education
FAVOURITE CLUB: (If not Newcastle) Newcastle, and AC Milan
FAVOURITE BAND: Pink Floyd
FAVOURITE FOOD: Bacon cheeseburger
FAVOURITE DRINK: Gin and tonic
FAVOURITE PLACE: Kinnick Stadium
FAVOURITE TV SHOW(S): Arrested Development, ATHF, Game of Thrones
FAVOURITE FILM: Empire Strikes Back
FAVOURITE SHARK: dead ones
FOOTBALLING HEROES:  Kaka, Maldini
FOOTBALLING VILLAINS:
OTHER TEAMS:  Bayern, Red Sox, Boston Celtics, Iowa Hawkeyes
OTHER SPORTS:  NBA, MLB, College
ROLE MODEL(S):
PLANS FOR THE FUTURE: Raise my two sons, 2 and 3 months
5 THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE: See the pyramids, go back to Munich, go to St. James' Park, month long hunting/camping in Alaska, go to Rio for Carnival

GO GO GO

Welcome, bob!

But . . . f*** the Sox, though.

Welcome. Surprising that you only became enamored with the club once Rafa arrived, given the earlier represention from other great Spaniards like Xisco, Luque and Marcelino.

Morning all,

First post on here, after 2 years of trying to join and 10 years of reading this forum - thank you for the good times.

Born & Bred Geordie, season ticket holder from around 1986 to 2017. Now, living and working in the states.

Excited to post, chat and still have access when anything remotely interesting happens, as this week  :whistle:

Hang on, two years 'trying' to join? :lol:

Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.
