I knew we’d played well but I think I’ll have to start going out a bit later before matches next season and not getting so smashed beforehand! I didn’t realise exactly how good last season had been until I sat down and watched the new Newcastle United 2011/12 season review DVD.
I ordered it via your site and class turn around from Amazon as it was at my door the next day, couldn’t wait to get it opened.
It’s funny that wherever you sit at the match it can sometimes seem totally different at the game compared to watching it later on MOTD etc., especially when you’ve had to go to the bog (another reason to limit the pre-match celebrations) and you miss Ben Arfa’s classic against Bolton!
Nothing beats actually being there but replaying over and over again Ben Arfa’s mazy run and goal against Blackburn in the cup, or Cabaye’s magical pass through to Cisse for the goal against Stoke….words fail me!
I don’t know what to think about next season, having watched this DVD over and over again I just can’t believe we will see so many brilliant moments again. On the positive side though, if we keep our best players why shouldn’t we see it all replayed again.
It wasn’t just the goals I loved, I really really hope we don’t sell Cheick Tiote because seeing the job he did against Manchester United was just awesome, knocking them all over the place but in a totally legal way. No wonder Fergie’s allegedly after him.
