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.

    Supposedly the NUFC has issued a “No comment at this time” about the story.

    The guy was mocked

    It one thing to say there is interest its another to say the paperwork has been submitted. If the journalist who wrote it is wrong his career is over.

    Bollix jizz.

    The frog would be made up as would 99% of toon fans.

    You on the other hand….would be out of a job or would have nothing better to do on a NUFC forum than wind up toon supporters, oh wait.

    Both seem to have lost their opinions

    A bad sign in my opinion,if so sure its true its an easy one

    Both seem to have decided to avoid the answer

    I will shut up about MA if true,will you two stop defending him if its lies ?

    Sun article was probably written by a bitter Mackem to wind us up after their heartbreak today. Won’t believe anything I read in the gutter press. Once it’s announced as fact on the BBC or Guardian website, I’ll believe it!

    Mr Tuff

    r.e our convo about sanif tags.

    The toll tag we got worked wonders.

    The motorways were pretty empty to be fair but still saved time. Especially satisfying when people who bombed past us were waiting in the queues!

    Endless questions from the kids.

    Dads got a magic car was the answer..smileyemoji
