But lets be honest, as Newcastle fans, we'd rather get beat 4-3, than lose 1-0. LIVE ON SUPER SUNDAY

Last home game of this season, Rafa's last home game. Liverpool need a win to stay alive in the title race.

Your commentary team Martin Tyler and Jamie Carragher.

93rd minute, score is 3-3.  SJP is loud and singing about Rafa.

Tyler: Perez..hanging on for man of the match..Perez..Almiron..Perez..........still Ayoze Perez....Joselu closing iiinnnnnn!!!!!! Newcastle lead in stoppage time!!!!!
Carragher: You absolute divvy! Do one you soft spanish c***.

klopp goes bonkers. SJP goes wild. Rafa doesnt know whether to celebrate or cry.

Abysmal FA Cup semi final defeat in Cardiff and Shearer's farewell at the Mackems.

Reading the .com report on the former. Now sat all depressed in the Venetian sun. Champion.
But...6 in a row. But...Calciopoli.

Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

We drove to Hereford of all places ffs. First ever away game, grim as f***.
Newcastle 4-4 Arsenal: "From impending tragedy to near-triumph via the most improbable route possible - 95 minutes that neatly encapsulate 130 years of football on this particular piece of grass. Newcastle, United, will never be defeated."

Sir Bobby Robson - What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses or the marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

The night we stopped over there were a few Blackburn fans as they had played that day. Impromptu games of street football. We used a football to guide us to pubs. Punt it down the street and go in the nearest pub to where it landed.

Bus to Cardiff 3am Sunday, got back 2am Monday. Was in year 11, weeks away from my GCSEs and fell asleep in double physics on the Monday morning. Cool as f*** story, I know.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

My favourite Shearer goal! Everyone seems to forget how good Shola’s was too! Look at the black and white shirts in the ground as well! Pride in the Club back then! I’m sure we helped Arsenal win the league this day iirc as they played Spurs away after this?!

It saddens me a little bit that a whole generation of people will only associate Keegan with the time he kicked off with his headphones on.  Sky in particular love bringing this moment up, but never seem to point out that Ferguson’s comments were out of order and they like to make Keegan out to be some silly little jumped up man who thought he could go toe to toe with Fergie.  The man was an absolutely legendary footballer and was also a very good manager aswell.  He has a 50% win ratio over his career, compare that to someone like Fat Sam who is apparently a good manager with a 39% win ratio.  I wish he was recognised a bit more for that.

What exactly were Fergusons full comments? I've searched a bit now and before and this is all I've found:

https://www.theguardian.com/sport/blog/2009/jan/15/sir-alex-ferguson-mind-games
Quote
Ferguson gave the interview that would eventually send Keegan into meltdown. "I can't understand the Leeds players," his diatribe began. "I'm absolutely in support of their manager. He doesn't deserve his players. If they had played like that all season they'd be near the top. They raised their game because they were playing Manchester United. It was pathetic. I think we can accept any club coming here and trying their hardest, so long as they do it every week."

As United’s form started to look ominous, Ferguson decided to turn the screw by suggesting teams like Nottingham Forest might not try as hard against Newcastle as they did against his side.

I don’t have the full quotes but he basically suggested that teams like Leeds and Nottingham Forest would try harder against Man Utd because it’s Man Utd and they’d rather Newcastle win the title or something along those lines. 

Some would call it clever from Fergie i guess, a bit like a player who deliberately “wins” a penalty.  Personally it’s not a part of the game i enjoy.

That was Keegan's strength and greatest weakness, very sensitive and very emotional. it's what made him such an inspiring manager and put him so closely in touch with the fans and the city. But ultimately why he couldn't handle management at the top level for very long.

Sorry for just posting the link. The site crashes my pc when I try to scroll due to all the horrible ads, video ads and buggy scripts they force onto it so I'm not able to. Appreciate if anyone with a high end PC could copy&paste article so I can read it in its entirety as it seems to explain a bit more what Keegan meant with his Stuart Pearce comments etc.
