Driving along minding his own business in Western Australia, Newcastle fan David Bilclough was given an unwelcome reminder of the mess thousands of miles away on Tyneside.

David spotted possibly the least desirable address on the planet.

In Fremantle, Western Australia they have the not so prestigious address of ‘Cardew Street’!


Yes there really is no escape from this black and white nightmare.

(***Just in case you have been out of contact with events on Tyneside, Cardew is a term of ‘endearment’ where the synergy of two managerial greats is achieved via their names – John CARver and Alan PARDEW)

Searching the internet for ‘Cardew’ it turns out that it is a Celtic name sometimes given to boys, with the following mumbo jumbo regarding the name, some of which is strangely appropriate in our case….
