Was watching the Newcastle v Sheff Wed game on you tube there and another video has started after it called stunning Newcastle United goals. 23 minutes full of cracking goals from the premier league years, well worth a watch.

I’ve been interviewing Newcastle commentators from over the years. Mick Lowes mostly about the 90s and the Keegan times and then Justin Lockwood for the Sir Bobby days. If you’re like me and enjoy the past hopefully you’ll find them a good read:

Thanks, Yorkie. The third part with Matthew Raisbeck will be up in the next few days.

Canny Demba interview in the Ronnie - sounds like he was mugged off in the summer of 12 by the fat man!

You could pick the shittest 6 out of our current lot and still have a decent team with them.

Can’t access full article but I agree with wearing more eye catching socks and strips in general (if that’s the point it was making). Never understand why you’d spend millions trying to gain a 1% sporting advantage only to go and kit your team out in a green strip that blends in with the grass.

Being 10 at the time, I grew up just taking the 'good bloke as he walked off without a payoff' thing at face value which does still have it's merit, don't get me wrong. But Jesus when are those quotes from? Comes across as such a belligerent prick.

'I was right'. You told Dyer you broke your no signing Englishmen rule because you did your research on him and he didn't drink! I won't take a single thing the man says seriously again. :lol:

The start of the article was bollocks “a club famous for never winning anything” what a load of s****. Pay for that wallop? No thanks

Gullit's quotes do a fantastic job of backing-up what the players said about him.

Albert Luque wrapped the F***** up

I remember watching that in my local, I was only 17 and it was carnage. Apparently only a few pubs in the whole area were showing it and there were people trying to peer in the windows and the place was rammed, went up when Shearer and N'zogbia scored.

I was down Whitley Bay as i believe it was a Bank holiday Monday and i was 17. So unfortunately i didn't see the full match.
I can't believe how many empty pink seats there are for a Derby game. They really are a tinpot club.
They're certainly where they belong at the moment.
