Newcastle United Tweet Support For Former Player


Newcastle United’s official Twitter account has given a bit of a subtle poke to our local rivals today. They, of course, have done so with a bit of class as well.

Lee Bowyer– when playing for Newcastle United

Newcastle United have tweeted out congratulations to our former midfielder Lee Bowyer after he has guided Charlton to the Championship with a thrilling win today at Wembley over Sunderland.

This is a tremendous accomplishment for Lee who only became the permanent manager in September and is actually out of contract with the club this summer.

We’re pretty certain Charlton Athletic will be eager to sign Lee to another contract after this great success.

Bowyer played for the Magpies from 2003 to 2006 and made 107 appearances for the club. While he may mostly be remembered for that unfortunate incident, we remember him as a player of determination and passion who was a quality midfielder on his day.

Lee seems to have been able to channel his fire and use it to inspire his players. We hope to see him do well in what looks to be a bright future as a manager.

Well done to Lee and Charlton Athletic.

    If anything though sums up Sunderland and their attempt to get back up to the championship, it’s this.

    I reckon if Charlton had been playing anyone else, most NUFC fans would have been happy with Bowyer losing.

    About halfway back, and got to say family all over the moon, but both sides seemed shocking. Thought whoever wins is going to need to spend a lot to keep them up

    Anyone know the financials at Sblunderland?

    Do they receive £20 million next season as part of parachute payments or is that finished ?

    The new owners seem to be saying it’s for sale ! Just in to make a few million and then off.

    Skip the best wishes , I want to see them in the bottom half of the Wearside league .

    Absolutely ‘buzzin’ as the kids say!

    I hate sunderland with an irrational passion for someone of my years. (almost 60) I wasn’t brought up in a hostile footballing family – this is all my own work!

    I hope they crash and burn horribly and cannot for one moment understand why some Mags want them to progress up the leagues again just so we can have a derby match.

    If the shoe was on the other foot could you imagine what life would be like?

    We may be stuck with Ashley but hopefully with Rafa at the helm we have some small hope for the future. I genuinely hope they have none at all.

    Their defeat today is all the sweeter because of the fact it happened in the last few seconds and that it was an ex-mag who manages their conquerors.

    I would love to think administration now beckons for the smarmy bastards who bought them on borrowed money from Ellis Shaw.

    Let them rot in hell.

    Anyone who wants to see the Derby match with Sunde*and return (one day in maybe the next 20 years) ha! I say with Sunde*and before some nutter sez Derby County… needs to have a re-think as the games between the Clubs are full of hate and spite and it comes from Wearside.

    Sunderland made a massive mistake in letting Kids in for a fiver, unaccompanied by an adult ..and then for free accompanied by an adult .. you got thousands of kids attending from Single parent families ..no roll model in the shape of a father figure…the behaviour from the Mackems on Derby day is appalling .

    No , I can do without the hate and the venom and the bad publicity it brings when we play them .

    Let’s hope we never play them in a game of competitive football again .

    The Brexit party have won Sunderland in the EU elections kicking out Labour.
    Must be the first time that loosing a play off match gets you into Europe.

    “The Brexit Party has also won Sunderland – previously held by Labour.

    Nigel Farage’s party won 39.8% of the vote.”

    After the great “Stokoe” Cup Final, Sunderland would have been the closest thing to my second team, if I had one, although I probably actually prefer Hartlepools. Ideally I’d like them in the EPL, doing well but always beneath us of course, there to be beaten in the derby, occasionally by several goals, but more often in tight, tense, full blooded affairs. There’s really nothing like a Tyne Wear derby. Now we’ve only got half a dozen games against the senior clubs to really look forward to, with very little chance of actually winning, and a whole heap of other games that only really offer the chance to pick up points, goals to cheer and little more. The derby, well that’s something else entirely, absolutely magic.

    Quite like the look of Moraes who we have been linked to looks a pacier , lankier version of Rondon would love us to sign both and have some rotation on the go ! Play the 2 at the same time for beast mode!

    I feel exactly the same way about them, grew up in Walker and we all hated the mackems and i still do. I really hope they struggle next season and drop down to league two. If that makes me a horrible person, I’ll take it! Hwtl
