Why I Love Newcastle United


It’s not a good time for Newcastle fans right now, but thanks to reader Paulo Martins and his Portuguese friends, here’s a video of Newcastle United and some of the resasons why we all still love the club.

Paulo said he made the video because he wanted to inspire Newcastle United fans around the world – and it looks to me like he achieved his goal.

We’ll come again – believe me!

Howay The Lads!!

    The Thing is Here Its about The Love of Newcastle United . The Club The Tradition The Fans The History . It is NOT ABOUT SPORTS DIRECT AND HOW ASHLEY CAN SCREW US OVER. The Bastard Can Mess With Our Minds But he will Never Be Loved … Someone has to get Hold of Barry Moat and get some Money Together and Get Ashley Out and Do it NOW !!!! Even the Gut From China that has Bought North East water he would be better that Ashley !!!

    I’m not feeling much love for our club at the minute.

    Just wish we’d have something to really cheer.

    Lets face it, Ashley won’t be here forever and as soon as he goes, imagine the joy you will get seeing those sports direct signs coming down.

    Gr8 video, gr8 memories even brought a tear to my eye. Ashley needs to see this to understand our passion, heritage and what it means to be a Newcastle supporter, player and even owner. If he still doesn’t get it then he needs to sell the club to some one who does!

    Itoons, Ashley isn’t interested in such things because it’s not making him £££’s
    and
    “If he still doesn’t get it then he needs to sell the club to some one who does!”

    Wish it were that easy.

    I think barton might refuse to move to another club forcing toon to either sack him, then they would have to pay off the rest of his contract, or see him run down the last year of his contract on 60 grand a week, makes sense for him to stick it out, know what I would do

  • MacToon, It’s strange but you would think that there would be ONE billionaire NUFC fan in the world.

  • thai-mag, if he stays he’ll have to stop twitting. Ashley will just fine him 2 weeks wages every time he twits something derogative about how the club is being run.

    GG @ 15, I agree and there are a few. Another option would be maybe an explayer/manager/rich fan getting a consortium together. I do think the recession hasn’t helped but it’s still possible.

    The video plays okay in Spain …?

    First 4 minutes good, the last 5 from the Goal! movie …

    Shearer scored some belters …

    Say what you want about past chairmen and expensive signings, they always wanted the best team possible for us not like this robbing lot.

    Oh ofc ochytoon, Ashley happened and probably asking too much for the club would be a good guess.

    Its probably not that hard to get into contact with him or at the very least make him aware of our intentions. I’m sure if you emailed/called the right people in his company you could establish communications if he truly had an interest

    £100 mil or £200 mil do you not think the loan to Ashley would be on top of that too, that’s over £200 mil as far as I’m aware.
