This Is How Newcastle Can Win Friends And Influence People


A heart warming story in the Evening Chronicle today,  about what happened on Tuesday night, after Cheick Tiote accidentally smashed the ball into the face of a young 7 year-old St. Mirren supporter in the crowd.

Frazer and Scott Peters – St Mirren supporters with signed ball and shirt

7 year-old Fraser Peters was hit by a mis-hit ball from Cheick during the first half of the game on Tuesday night, and the ball hit the schoolboy in the head, and he was left close to tears.

But Cheick came out at half time to apologize to the youngster, and that’s shown in the photograph below, and Cheick also handed over his shirt and a ball – which had been signed by all the Newcastle players.

And both lads also got the chance to meet the Newcastle squad after the game too.

Cheick Tiote apologizing to 7 year-old Frazer Peters at half time

Fraser is an avid young St Mirren supporter and he said this today:

“It was sore when the ball hit me on the face but Cheick came over at half-time and gave me his Newcastle shirt to make up for it.”

“I also got to meet the rest of the Newcastle team at the end of the match and I took my brother Scott with me.” “The players gave me a signed ball and I shook hands with some of them.”

“Cheick’s top is now worth a million pounds to me. I’ll keep it with all my favorite toys.”

It’s quite a toy.

The two schoolboys had gone to the game with their grandfather Graham McGee, and this is what grandpa said:

“It was a great gesture from Tiote and from Newcastle.” “Fraser and eight-year-old Scott are keen footballers.”

This is a great story and shows something we always knew about Cheick Tiote – he has a heart of gold – and we knew that because of the way he supports his brothers and sisters in the Ivory Coast with his Newcastle pay check.

This was a classy action by Newcastle on Tuesday night – and we won the game 2-0 too. 😀

    Having Cheick Tiote mistake his face for the ball when attempting the Guinness world record ofvwho can kick a ball the furthest is too good for Ashley.

    Marc,
    We lost virtually every friendly we played in the pre season we came fifth, in games where we should have been beating the opposition. Wouldn’t take too much heed of the games so far.

    Not that I’m feeling confident, we need bodies in and in soon, but the pre season results aren’t a bench mark.

    This blog has become a joke and not a very funny one.

    Jeff/Viv/Plana/Count – everyone knows about them

    Ruddy and his gross hypocrisy – I see he logged in solely to call Pawl a ‘cretin’, last night. Not that he was taking the opportunity to get on his high horse a few weeks ago, about someone’s use of the word ‘mongoloid’.

    Another day, another argument that will ruin the blog for the majority of it, lurching from one spat to the next.

    Naaaaaaaw… Think people tend to forget our players are human while constantly slating them.

    Isn’t that sissoko though?

    If you were coming from a position of strength tads, I might feel a need to defend myself from you.

    As it is, you are digging your own hole perfectly adequately.

    Do you not feel the slightest bit silly for taking the piss out of people who actually can tell our players faces apart.

    As for you not grasping the concept of satire. I can’t say I am surprised. If it weren’t for the fact that you claim to be a writer.

    ha according to this he kicked the ball unnecessarily into the crowd after the whistle had blown, not from a clearance. That sounds more like our tiote 🙂

    I have a feeling we’ll lose to Man City by two goals (3-1, 4-2), but the performance will be decent and will bode well for the rest of the season.

    So its come down from sale only to 2m fee for loan deal for Remy.
    I think 2m is ok so long as they pay his wages.
