This Player Could Return Much Inproved This Summer

1:46 pm, Wednesday, February 19th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 230 Comments

Mehdi Abeid joined Newcastle almost three years ago, and he came well recommended and started his Newcastle career so well in that first summer,  that he forced his way onto the American tour with players like James Perch not making the trip.

Mehdi Abeid - playing well in Greece

Mehdi is on a season long loan at Greek side Panathinaikos, after he went on loan to St. Johnston last season, and it seems the regular first team games are improving the 21 year-old, who has been getting excellent reports for his play in Greece.

While at St. Johnstone, Mehdi played 13 games, and while on loan this season he has played 22 times and scored 5 goals for Panathinaikos, who have been Greek Champions a total of 20 times, the last time being in 2010, and they were one of the founding members of the Greek Super League 55 years ago.

The Algerian has 4 caps at the U23 level (for Algeria) and played for the French U16, U17 and U18 sides before he arrived on Tyneside on a free transfer from Lens in the summer of 2011.

The Chronicle is reporting the Greek side would love to keep him on a permanent basis, but they cannot afford the transfer fee – and in fact they cannot afford a lot more important things than signing new players, such is their very poor financial state.

This is what Mehdi himself has said: about the situation

“I feel perfectly fine here. I want to continue my adventure with Panathinaikos, but as everyone knows, the decision is not mine.” “The Directors of Pana will negotiate with Newcastle to redeem my contract.”

Mehdi signed a five year deal with Newcastle when he joined us, so there is still almost two and a half years left on his contract – but if Mehdi has done so well in Greece this season, surely Newcastle will want to take a look at him in pre-season, and see how well he has progressed.

Mehdi Abeid – in Panathinaikos colors

After all Mehdi doesn’t turn 22 until August, and maybe he can still make it on Tyneside –  especially since the word on him in Greece is that his work-rate, passing and intelligent play have made him extremely popular with the fans.

But Greek clubs reflect the state of the Greek economy, and to put it bluntly – they are skint – and can hardly afford any transfer fees in these times of severe economic hardship.

But if Mehdi has done that well,  he surely deserves a chance to show what he can do for Newcastle in pre-season, and that’s especially true because his work-rate is high, and that should please manager Alan Pardew.

It will be good to see how far the 21 year-old has progressed when pre-season starts in early July – we hope he’s come on in leaps and bounds. :D

What do you think?

    can imagine, seeing as we will need 6/7 players in the summer he will be counted as one of them and we’ll be told he’s like a new signing.

  • 2 mindshaft // Feb 19, 2014 at 1:50 PM

    Well hopefully one of our loanees will come back improved as it looks like Cambell, Vuckic etc have found their level in the sweaty sock leagues / League 2 – Fergie can’t even get a game at Brum so Cashley will get nee cash for that lot

    @TDS think you’ll find NUFC make a fairly large cash donation as well as offering full support – government cuts have cut charitable grants hugely this year and that is what they’ll need to make up in charitable donations ( of which toon contribute)

    I get they make a donation, my point is why is it a charity carrying out the work rather than the club it’s self?
    Both seem to do very little tbf and government cuts certainly haven’t factored in to many other clubs community programmes

  • 4 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 19, 2014 at 1:54 PM

    He may well be a better player but it sounds like he’s already got one foot out the exit door

    Be about right, one of our loanee’s actually look half decent and there scrabbling for the exit!

  • 5 Ciaran // Feb 19, 2014 at 1:57 PM

    Scitoon from previous thread

    Why should investment for non-league clubs, grass-roots football and women’s football be mutually exclusive? Newcastle United is a multi-million pound club and the relative budgets of these clubs/areas for development are minuscule in comparison so surely NUFC could afford some form of investment to improve women’s football AND non-league development?

  • 6 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 19, 2014 at 2:08 PM

    Ciaran
    This is where the Ashley sponsorship argument comes in, mainly because except Wonga, we don’t have one
    Sponsors usually back the clubs massively with community projects
    Where as we pay our sponsor………

    The Chronicle is reporting the Greek side would love to keep him on a permanent basis, but they cannot afford the transfer fee – and in fact they cannot afford a lot more important things than signing new players, such is their very poor financial state.

    Whereas we are blessed with an owner who could afford transfer fees but won’t!

    What a plight we’re in and the sooner Ciaran and his chums can find a buyer who’s committed to developing the club, the better. Ciaran, is t4c made any progress in that direction yet? any thoughts on engineering some international media coverage saying that Toon supporters would love to talk to a credible, potential buyer (s) to show them just how much the club means to its fans.

    Or better still, talk to Ashley….. in a constructive manner naturally.

  • 9 STB // Feb 19, 2014 at 2:51 PM

    On the Women’s team, either the club should not let them carry the name or they should give a bit of investment. Positive marketing as a family and women friendly club for a small investment.
    As the current lot are pretty hopeless, if I were a 1st team player on well over £20 k per week, you would think i could at least sponsor MY female counterpart for a few £k per year ?

    We should take a look at how Konstantinos Mitroglou plays for Fulham before they go down, I reckon he could be a top Prem player.

    I dont know how to develop a disposable camera either, thats why photo shops exist ;)

  • 15 Laurent Robert 32 // Feb 19, 2014 at 3:16 PM

    No surprise that Mehdi was one of the youngsters slaughteted publically by Mr. Pardew as not good enough yet it is now getting praise when he’s in another team.

    Funny how he excels when he’s elsewhere and has been given a chance. Probably better coaching other than just contain, contain, contain, means his skills can be utilised to a lot better effect.

    Of course Pardew put Campbell on and made him what looked like a wide defensive midfield player. That’s nothing new. Ask Tevez and Cisse.

    I’m sure Abeid could be a good player for the rest of his career. He won’t find much development here though.

    The summer transfer window will test Mash, if he sticks to his tight transfer policy, which he probably will we will be relegated come the end of next season.
    Our better player’s will want away and who can blame them? The rest are better suited to the championship.
    I’m really p….d off with this joke of a club just pleased I didn’t waste my money on a season ticket.

  • 25 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Feb 19, 2014 at 4:12 PM

    Pardew is a tactical genius who takes our flair players to a new level!

    …Benny and Marv were never going to go places anyway…that is why we bought them and clubs like Liverpool have been interested in them!

  • 26 catchy in norway // Feb 19, 2014 at 4:22 PM

    Jesper

    I hear Milan only want HBA because he is the best defensive AMC /RW in the prem

    there not worried about what he can create , only that he helps the RB out

  • 27 Laurent Robert 32 // Feb 19, 2014 at 4:25 PM

    Marveaux had the medical issue with his groin which is why Liverpool didn’t persue the deal wasn’t it?

    I like his technique on the ball and how comfortable he is in making short accurate passes. He’s quite subtle. Doesn’t need to launch long cross field passes, just tries to play neat football. Similar to the type of passing Swansea have done in recent years. A bit like Anita, but with a lot more vision for a final ball.

    As I’ve said this morning, I think he has some very worthwhile plus points to his style and I would want to tap into that productivity, not dismiss him because his defending isn’t very good.

    Attacking is defending…

  • 28 beermonkey // Feb 19, 2014 at 4:25 PM

    before any of our loan players are thrust back into the first team they all play at regular onloan to at least top 10 championship teams,
    to be honest I cant see pards playing any of them
    he did it with fergurson bought him in he did ok got some assists then gone, why he did more than Jonas in 3sub appearance than Jonas in a season
    now we got remy goofy back it will be bye bye Sammy
    if any of our youngsters have any desire to do well there better of seeking pastures new,

    its a real shame ok it would be nice if we could develop world class players but what we need is for it to develop a good standard of squad player

    this by far the worst club to support even my mates that are man u supporters are having a better time at least they know there goin to address there problems in the summer

  • 29 GeordieTwo // Feb 19, 2014 at 4:29 PM

    I’m still having trouble understanding the shocking form at home recently. Are we really that bad? If so it’s fortunate we have 37 points already. The collapse against Sunderland was the worst of it of course but we’ve been poor in many games at home this season. I still remember the loss to Hull for example. A failure to recognize underperforming players by Pardew is definitely part of it.

  • 30 GeordieTwo // Feb 19, 2014 at 4:37 PM

    I think we only have 5 wins at home so far this season. With only 6 home games remaining our record is going to be shocking. Possibly only 8 or 9 wins at home out of 19 games! Poor to say the least. How to explain it? Poor tactics, lack of depth, underperforming players, I think we’ve had a bit of everything.

  • 31 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Feb 19, 2014 at 4:38 PM

    Catchy…yeah what were we thinking signing him?

    …we all know Pardew knows best right!

  • 32 ONLINE GUY // Feb 19, 2014 at 4:47 PM

    My EX girlfriend was Captain of the Aston Villa Ladies team back in the early 80′s late 70′s her name ?….

    Victoria Day ..I still have pictures of her in her strip

    A few years after ..I had not seen her for some time, she turned up on Coronation street as a belly dancer !

    “On 18 June 2011, Marveaux agreed and signed a five-year deal with Premier League club Newcastle United. He had reportedly been very close to joining Liverpool under the management of Kenny Dalglish. Marveaux rubbished claims he failed a medical at Anfield, confirming he could not agree terms”

  • 40 GeordieTwo // Feb 19, 2014 at 5:05 PM

    A belly dancing coach could make us very slinky and difficult to tackle. We could go serpentine much more often. Dazzling footwork, Turkish nipple armour. That’s clearly what we’ve been missing. I’ll pass that on to Alan straight away.

  • 41 GeordieTwo // Feb 19, 2014 at 5:06 PM

    Has anybody got a good belly dancing song we can play at the ground before games? Essential in my opinion. Harrumph.

  • 44 mindshaft // Feb 19, 2014 at 5:08 PM

    Yup – our home form has been awful this season

    West Ham 0-0
    Hull City 2-3
    Liverpool 2-2
    Southampton 2-2
    Arsenal 0-1
    Citeh 0-2
    Mackems 0- I can’t type it
    Spuds 0-4

    We should only be expecting to drop points against probably Arse and Citeh although if we’d played Arse earlier in the season I reckon we would have managed a draw, Pards and the team have gone to sleep since we reached 34 points

  • 45 GeordieTwo // Feb 19, 2014 at 5:14 PM

    Agreed mindshaft. Another disastrous window to boot. An owner who is completely out of touch. Hires Kinnear, lets him do nothing for 6 or 8 months, then gets rid of him. Watches the team fall apart but does nothing else because we are sitting on 37 points.

  • 46 ONLINE GUY // Feb 19, 2014 at 5:15 PM

Keegan must shake his head in bewilderment when he watches the likes of Benny trying to defend , which, ok he cant and wont , what would Keegan have done with him? he would have done exactly what he done with ginola and robert.Them 2 couldnt defend for toffee, so he didnt make them , he got defenders it to do that, he got wingers to play on the wing , and he got midfielders to play in midfield. His philosophy was to play his players where they were going to cause damage- drop grenades all over the pitch , as he would say . Simple , however, so bloody effective . So there you go pards- take a tip from the King .

    Well I’ve paused and reflected. We do need headgear with fine tassles. And sequins. We need a lot of sequins. Especially Pards. Headgear, tassles, nipple armour, sequins and a huge SD hoarding strapped to his back. Why hasn’t Mike thought of this already?

    Young home grown players can only be a small contributor to teams in the Prem now unfortunately mindcompressor. The money is there to invest and other clubs are scouting all over the world. Our owner is completely out of it. We can’t compete with our miniscule scouting group. We only watch a few European countries. Not nearly good enough now. And we won’t spend anyway. Home growns will only contribute one or two players to the senior team at any time.

    Christ, the clubs in a pickle now ..Banning the press .. I don’t think it will make the press think twice about printing sh*ite about us ..saying that they have done it for eon’s now true or untrue ..Perhaps they will think about it more in the future ..we have been scapegoat’s and made a laughing stock by the neg stuff past and present ..It makes other clubs fans feel good and they all join in ..bit like the mentality on here at times .

  • 79 GeordieTwo // Feb 19, 2014 at 5:53 PM

    We can break the team’s problems down to a few key areas. Each of them deserves careful attention.
    1. Ownership. Ours is poor bordering on criminal negligence. How to tackle this problem as supporters? Can anything effective be done. We should discuss this more.
    2. Management and coaches. Are they good enough? The question is good enough for what? The current owner wants mediocrity but are they even good enough to achieve that consistently? And what kind of goal is that anyway?
    3. Players. Have we recruited well? Has the owner really improved the reserve and junior teams? If not what are the key problems? Is it the coaching, the recruitment? Big issues here I would think if we look at the last few seasons.

  • 80 Thump // Feb 19, 2014 at 5:54 PM

    Watching Messi tracking back last night ..He worked hard to retain the ball when City had it but did not go tooo Deep, stayed on the edge of midfield ..Pardew expects Hatem to Play right back at time’s ! further back than the right back! ..although Messi is more central he kept well out of the back four area most of the game ..Hatem’s been flogged like a Horse ..maybe he’s dispirited, reflecting his Tiredness or at least it looked like he was tired and unfit against Spurs ..He was chasing spurs winger back and got left for dead ..That’s not Hatems Game

    Great Player with all the skill’s but he seems unfit and tired out ..I prefer a killer pass from a player rather than a dribbler ..that’s what we are lacking ..Marvo and Cisse had something going that way on ..I see Sissoko In some great positions and all he needs to do is play a killer pass, it does not Happen..

    Just joking there. It wouldn’t exactly be good for player morale. The current disgusting home form has to be turned around however. The Villa game is crucial for us.

  • 85 GeordieTwo // Feb 19, 2014 at 6:05 PM

    Key insight mates. Ashley loves to have a dominatrix come over to the castle and whip him while he watches the window close, having done nothing for the club. Does this tell us something important about his personality? Hmmm.

    So we’re back to the question of where to go from here mates? Does the team get better or worse in the remaining games this season? Does our home form improve? Can we score goals? Is Mike Ashley bisexual? A lot of questions to answer.

  • 97 Markaccus // Feb 19, 2014 at 6:28 PM

  • 103 Tsunki // Feb 19, 2014 at 6:33 PM

    I would have to guess that we will see some more dire performances, the players are trying desperately to get rid of Pards and it’s difficult to see how they can do much more than they have already done, what with throwing 3 yes count them three derbies against very poor Jim jam wearers sides.

    A stuffing by two bottom feeder sides should do it but mike’s reputation means it will be difficult to source a credible replacement. Unless George Burley is available.

  • 104 GeordieTwo // Feb 19, 2014 at 6:35 PM

    Ah, well then ….. good Markaccus @98. Harrumph. Or not. Hmmm. Did I mention our powerful resonating wavelengths? That must be a huge boost then. And our commitment to tassles? We’re on the right track lads.

  • 109 GeordieTwo // Feb 19, 2014 at 6:40 PM

    That’s a very good point Tsunki. Yes, very good. So it’s possible the players are trying to rid themselves of Pardew. And how do we rid ourselves of Ashley? Is it like a body lice problem? Can we just spray on the right chemicals and force him to leave then? Or has he got his head buried more deeply in our flesh? Possibly a cigarette burn to the blighter’s torso will send him scurrying away?

  • 110 Toon Tang // Feb 19, 2014 at 6:40 PM

    Who’s besmirching who tonight then lads? Plenty of besmirching going on recently, and from the neutral viewpoint the besmirching isn’t productive as it adds an air of besmirching air to the place.

    Tbh Id never ever used or heard the word besmirching until the word besmirching was introduced to the blog, so i’m now making up for the time I’ve had on this earth without using the word besmirching.

  • 116 south coast toon // Feb 19, 2014 at 6:47 PM

    what does everyone think about the striker situation should we play remy now, hes not signing for us,so do we play cisse in the hope he finds form and stays this summer, because im worried luke is not going to make the grade and that leaves us a big mountain to climb in finding strikers
    why is mym not playing instead of taylor
    is harrida injured as santon seems exposed without groffon playin
    do you think players are looking art pardew and thinking whats the point and would you come to newcastle with him as manager, pards has some big dessions to make for our future in what he does with the squad now, he must know if all our strikers go this summer they wont be replaced
    so lets hope all our loanee players make the grade as we aint got a cat in hells chance of bringing in what could be neede in the summer

  • 117 Tsunki // Feb 19, 2014 at 6:48 PM

    Is besmirching the act of smirching? If so what does it mean to smirch someone?

    That’ll be a laugh as we possibly won’t win one game if all those players are gonna leave.
    My 5 year plan is to hopefully see newcastle in the PL with a new manager and new owner within 5 years and not in the championship.
    The only saving grace with the dose in charge is he can’t have the club lingering in the championship as it worn make him money.
    We could have a plan to strengthen from leagues like Belgium and Holland.

    Evening all !
    Not been on since the Cabaye transfer…..

    Noticed on newsnownewcastle that Debuchy may be hinting at leaving, i am sorry fellas but cant blame anyone for wanting to leave. I said this about about six months ago on one of my posts, players came last January because we would of been relegated without them. I attended a talk-in in October and the former player has been spot on with everything he said.

    I mentioned then if we show no ambition in ‘this coming window (jan just gone)’ that players will want to be away.
    Sissoko, Debuchy, Tiote, Cisse, Santon and MYM will all be away either by their choice or Ash flogging them. How many other sportswear shops have their own sports news website !!! Ash is running our club just like a catalogue…. Everything you see is for sale, even starting rumours on his sports news website to start interest in our players.

    I am fed up with everything about our wonderful club, Ash does not give a care in the world other than money, he is a greedy, greedy man who will not leave until he has made a huge profit.

    But i am just repeating what most of you chaps have said in the past.

    The sooner he sells all the players and gets his fifty pieces of silver- the better. Although we may have to be relegated for him to leave. Lets hope it does not get to that.

    IMO

    loan move was perfect for him and at the right time also and i really hope he has improved as it looks like he has to be fair ! next season we will asses him to find out if he’s squad worthy and hopefuly he will be and become our next cm fingers crossed.

    vukic the same he looks very improved also and tav who will all be part of the 24man squad if they stay so its stick or bust imo.

    add this to now putting marveax in the u18s (does any1 know why) and blaming subs for a bad performance

    why would any players up and coming or established want to play for a manager like this cos if u aint his fave he is gonna treat you like sh1t

    our youngsters were not good enough ! no matter who you pick out of them i’m pretty sure we have better quality players who will/would be played instead of them so a loan was best for everyone then atleast they will have chance to improve instead of getting no game time.

    and reason for marv ! well imo he was punished for not giving a rats about the team and putting no effort into it when he was given a chance to claim his place !
    its what a lot of the “good” managers do when they have trouble with there players so why wouldnt pards try it when he’s obv not listening !

    How is Tarrabdt playing for Milan??
    Not getting a game for lowly Qpr,looking pretty useless most of the time in the PL just like Ben Arfa (did some great things but very seldom)and now playing in the champions league.
    He’s had two decent assists that gave ended up hitting the post.
    He certainly knows from tonight’s showing,how to cross a ball unlike our wingers

    Sorry about the petty arguments

    sorry for the abuse

    True,Pards has every right to put Marveau in the sin bin,he really didn’t show any interest after coming on the last day

  • 203 Blofal // Feb 19, 2014 at 8:15 PM

    Debuchy just stated in an interview whn questioned that he is at Newcastle now… but next year he’s not sure.

    Time to start looking for a new RB :(

  • 204 Marty-Toon // Feb 19, 2014 at 8:17 PM

    De Jong shouldn’t be allowed to play football with some of the tackles he’s done in his career,really dislike him.

  • 205 John Tudor // Feb 19, 2014 at 8:26 PM

    did he gesture he was off for a tug

  • 206 Markaccus // Feb 19, 2014 at 8:45 PM

    Both penalties were fair. Thought the sending off was harsh. Clumsey and mis timed but not deliberate. Two shocking pens though. I could have done better

  • 207 jasper // Feb 19, 2014 at 8:50 PM

    Talking on Monday to a friend. He and 8 mates have all sat together at Leazes / Milburn corner for over ten years. He says all but two definitely not renewing and other two not sure.
    Does make me think that talk of mass loss of ST holders may not be short of the mark.

  • 208 jazzyp // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:07 PM

    Jasper
    My wife and I have been regular members of the milburn, But have stopped frequenting the ground until this mess is sorted out at Nufc. Im fed up of all the Bs excuses and drivel that is spouted from the board

  • 209 John Tudor // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:10 PM

    or lack of it

  • 210 Marty-Toon // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:15 PM

    Quite insane bit of skill by Adel Tarrabt there

  • 211 Marty-Toon // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:21 PM

    Jasper and Jazzyp
    I’m not surprised that people don’t wanna go and are not renewing their ST’s as the football is dire,the effort us dire,the lack of communication from board and owner is dire.
    I barely wanna spend 2 hrs of my Saturday/Sunday watching it never mind going to and from watching that from the stands.

  • 212 GeordieTwo // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:23 PM

    Oooooh! Yes miss Nubbins, yes! Do it again! Wait a minute. I’m back online aren’t I? Now where were we gentlemen. Harrumph!

  • 213 GeordieTwo // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:26 PM

    Thank you for taking those important comments down Miss Nubbins. That will be all for now. Excellent goal by Kroos lads. Arsenal look a bit desperate.

  • 214 jazzyp // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:27 PM

    Marty
    The fact is im not prepared to waist my time anymore travelling 3 hrs up and down the A1 to go and see that shower of Sh@t no more. Its alright people saying go support the players not the hierarchy……..But did you see Ben arfa or santon or krull ect performances against spurs. They didn’t give a flying F@ck and that’s the way the rest of the season is going to go

  • 215 martoon // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:33 PM

    Evening gents (and ladies). I decided to renew my season ticket by continuing the DD in the vain hope things will improve in the Summer and next season. I was pleasantly surprised that NUFC have reduced the price by about £29 – could this be an attempt to win back some ST holders?

  • 216 John Tudor // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:34 PM

    why cant we score goals like that
    i know why
    pardew

  • 217 jazzyp // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:36 PM

    Martoon
    Im afraid £29 aint make much difference to the mass buddy. The damage is done and to many fans have had enough. The way things are continiung we will be lucky to be attracting 40k at home games next season

  • 218 stuart no9 // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:44 PM

    martoon @214—– ashley will be pleased with you then !

  • 219 jimiley // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:44 PM

    I would rather watch 11 zebras rather than greedy twat Rooney earning 300K a week. You cannot really appreciate how much that is and nobody blinks an eye. He will be 34 and 18 stone and still earning 300k a week. Whether he plays or nor or is injured for two years or not. Quite disgusting and one of the reasons why football is slowly dying. We shud leave it to the top 6 to sort out the prizes and watch Blyth Spartans.

  • 220 Markaccus // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:47 PM

    Well. I got 2 quid of my 3.75 back. I got 5.01 from the one treble, 3 doubles and 3 singles. 7.01 return. A profit of 3.26p woo hoo. The drinks are on me.

  • 221 John Tudor // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:48 PM

    pint of water then for me

  • 222 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:49 PM

    Does anyone else think Kroos is the new Lampard ? .

    He has the potential to surpass Frank if he keeps improving as well .

  • 223 John Tudor // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:50 PM

    ill just help myself cheers

  • 224 Markaccus // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:50 PM

    Bps

    certainly a special goal he scored. Dont know much about him.

  • 226 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 19, 2014 at 9:59 PM

    It’s amazing how it’s easier to understand Micheal Ballack than it is Jamie Carrager!

  • 227 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 19, 2014 at 10:03 PM

    @ Tads

    Scouse is probably the worst incarnation of the English language I have ever heard, followed by Brummy .

    Nothing against the people from Birmingham or Liverpool like ;) .

  • 228 Marty-Toon // Feb 19, 2014 at 10:05 PM

    Jazzyp
    I get ya,I wouldn’t use the 3 hrs if I lived in England either

    Tads
    That’s brilliant,Carragher is impossible when he goes on a roll of words.
    Amazing that he struck some good defensive partnerships with foreigners

  • 229 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 19, 2014 at 10:06 PM

    BPC
    Very true mate, scousers always sound like there getting ready to flem up and brummy is just tediously boring!

  • 230 Marty-Toon // Feb 19, 2014 at 10:07 PM

    I remember the last time I flew to newcastle for a game and got collected by a cab,I had difficulties understanding what the cabbie was saying and I’m Irish.
    Inner city Geordie ain’t easy to catch but not as bad as inner city Liverpool
