Feast Or Famine At Newcastle – It’s A Feast Right Now


If you are a Newcastle United fan, there’s really nothing in the middle of how things are going at the Tyneside club.

Newcastle United fans – that’s me right at the back on the right 😀


It’s either feast or famine – everything is either just wonderful and great in the Newcastle garden, or everything is so terrible and bad – and the sky is falling in.

And if we can ignore a certain clueless Mike Ashley, the former is how things are right now at the club and with the fans.

After 3 wins in a row, and an excellent display from the lads yesterday, and a fantastic first goal ever at Newcastle from Argentine winger Jonas Gutierrez, things couldn’t be much better.

But of course that feeling could all be turned around quickly and completely by two defeats – and Graeme Souness used to always say that a crisis at Newcastle was always two games away – two successive defeats – and he was so right.

So as Newcastle fans, we are at least aware of what we’re like – kind of.

Avid readers of this site will remember, on the negative side, that this blog was nowhere to be seen for about 24 hours after the side was defeated at Scunthorpe United, after we had also been beaten in the previous game at Nottingham Forest.

It took us that time to get over our devastation at the defeat, but hey – what do you expect – we are Newcastle fans.

It’s bad enough when we get beat, but then to have to write about is worse than water-boarding.

I’ve been a Newcastle fan – born and bred in Newcastle – for 60 years and saw my first game at St. James’ Park in 1949 – and while I cannot remember too much about the game,  I do remember the red number 9 on Jackie Milburn’s shirt, and he moved with lightning speed – the Newcastle legend from Ashington.

I still live and breathe Newcastle – just ask my long suffering wife Madeline – a Geordie girl herself, and this morning I kind of forced her to watch the Gutierrez goal on video from yesterday.

So we have to we forgiven for basking in Newcastle being top of the league, at least until we meet Preston North End two weeks tomorrow night, and another win in that game, and we may have to reach for the tranquilizers. 😀

And we have to say our players have really showed some real fight, skill and guts this season, and that’s what we want to see from the Newcastle players – always.

If we can indeed get promoted this season it will indeed be a miracle, but we can take absolutely nothing for granted – after the disaster which was last season.

Howay The Lads!!

    see according to the sunday sun ashley has even employed a company from glasgow to sell the burgers outsie the ground.
    the people who have been selling burgers etc outside the ground for 20 years turned up yesterday.
    To their astonishment there were other vans on their patch selling exactly the same grub but dearer,when the club were asked they said it was to bring more revenue into the club as part of the catering side.
    The Fat t**t didnt even bother to tell the people who have done this for years.
    Also said him and lard arse just sat laughing at the chants this bloke is a w****r

    Re the food vans this FCB has no rights over who gets the pitches outside the gallowgate as that is up too the council , does this guy think he owns the city now? if the council give the vans the permits too trade surely they can and must do something too put this cockney winker in his place.
