They say a picture is worth a thousand words and this time we bring you a classic image of Gary Speed in happier times, a credit to Newcastle United.

We also have the renaming of a Geordie Institution as well as photos from our fan archive with everything from ‘Bootiful’ Bernard Matthews to Steve Bruce’s birthplace.

Whenever we recall Gary Speed it will be as a player who always gave 100% and this photo for us sums up his passion and pride in the shirt after our FA Cup Semi-Final win against Spurs.

This section that was a massively popular feature in The Mag magazine for years. What a combination we have here – a ‘Bootiful’ Bernard Matthews, Geordies in their pants and Steve Bruce’s birthplace !

Thanks to Tony Whittle for capturing The Strawberry’s amusing slant on the stadium debacle.
