NUFC Players Thank The Fans For Their Support During This ‘Strange’ Season



The doors were shut on this long and tumultuous season this past Sunday. While it finished on a sour note, it was far from an uneventful campaign. The fact that we’ll be back in just six weeks for another season in the Premier League means it was, at least in part, a successful season.

This was a season like no other with the pandemic and takeover speculation. In the end, it should not go unnoticed that the team consisted of a fantastic group of lads who got on with their jobs under very trying circumstances.

A few of the boys took to social media over the past few days to thank the fans for their support over the course of this campaign. Hopefully, we’ll see the bulk of them next season with a few new faces added to the mix.

    The Freda Cunningham was the first diesel ferry to be commissioned on the North to South Shields route and was in use when the ferry service was called the “Market Place Ferry”. This vessel had a reputation for unreliability and was frequently out of service. The ferry’s name came from the wife of North East Labour Party leader Andy Cunningham, who was later jailed for corruption. She was also the mother of politician and cabinet minister, Jack Cunningham. She was commissioned in 1972 to replace the steamship Northumbrian and sold in 1993 when the Pride of The Tyne came into service.

    Be nice if Ed gave us a button that we could remove individual posters from our thread – perhaps just for 5 days at a time.

    Can think of 4 that would be on my list – and no its not been brought out any time soon.

    And like Essex, your wisdom is greater than mine. I only know of those little ships from watching them nipping up and down the river.

    Come to think of it, there were some strange looking vessels that used to ply the Tyne. The Titan crane comes to mind along with a very small tug-like thing that had a flat bow and was used to push vessels into position. It wasn’t a tug and seemed to work around the yards and dry docks.

    You’re a mischief maker and your odds seem reasonable.

    Just as well you priced Carltoon at 33/1 – your life wouldn’t be worth living if you’d offered shorter odds.

    My opinion on a team who can defend well is one that doesn’t have to give up possession to the opposition all of the time.

    Unfortunately Newcastle’s defence works nothing like this because they don’t have the players to defend well without the help of everyone else falling back into their own half, generally well inside their own half. They get trapped in their own half because there is no outlet.

    This is Newcastle’s modus operandi. The statistics prove this beyond any doubt.

    The answer is simple; buy quality players who can manipulate the ball and create space for each other. Unfortunately, these players cost a lot of money.

    To say Newcastle’s defence has been good this year and in previous years is not correct because the defence has had to rely on everyone dropping back to help out, sacrificing any attacking options.

    I really don’t think it’s the players so much as the manager.

    Last year our defence was looking rock solid. Nobody left, and we added Kraft, Willems on loan and Rose on loan.

    Jarrow MP Kate Osborne has sent a written letter to Premier League supremo Richard Masters after contact from concerned fans who want an answer on whether Amanda Staveley, the Reuben brothers and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund have been successful in their bid to buy the club.

    Ash removal from Stella and Dunston power stations

    Ash from the stations was carried out to sea and dumped by hopper barges. Bessie Surtees passes the Swing Bridge on a return to the Stella power stations in the late 1980s
    Fly ash and bottom ash are two by-products from the burning of coal in power stations. Ash from the Stella stations was taken out to sea by three flat iron barges: Bobby Shaftoe, Bessie Surtees and Hexhamshire Lass.[63] All three were built by Charles Hill & Sons of Bristol, in 1955.[64] Bessie Surtees was the first to be put into service, in April 1955.[63] On each trip, each ship took up to 500 tonnes of ash from the stations down the river and dumped it in the North Sea, 4.8 km (3.0 mi) off the coast. Originally, they carried ash waste from Dunston power station as well.[64] Their frequent passages made them a common sight on the Tyne. Each was 46 m (151 ft) long and 10 m (33 ft) wide, weighed 680 tonnes, and had a crew of seven. They were managed by Stephenson Clarke Shipping Ltd but owned by the CEGB.[64] The ships went further up the Tyne than did any other, and so needed a shallow draft.[64] The entire load of ash was dumped through two hydraulically operated doors in only a few minutes.[63]

    As early as the 1960s, the power stations’ operating hours were decreased due to the opening of the much larger Blyth power station in Northumberland. This meant that less ash was produced by the Stella and Dunston stations; so by the end of the 1960s, the CEGB sold Hexhamshire Lass and Bobby Shaftoe. The former went to a firm in Fareham, Hampshire, where it worked as a sand dredger until scrapped in 1993; the latter to a French dredging company.[6
