As well as players and manager we also talk to a whole host of other people and often carry an interview with a journalist who covers the Toon.

This issue we spoke to Neil Farrington who had been covering Newcastle for ten years at this point. With journalists they obviously have far more freedom to talk than players and at this point there was civil war at St.James’ Park with Graeme Souness going to war with Craig Bellamy.

Neil gave us a great interview and an insight into what exactly was happening behind the scenes at Newcastle United. Read on.
