Putting Newcastle United Back On The Map

9 years ago

Well now I’m getting worried. Is this my club?  Are we really 4th ? Or am I about to do a Bobby Ewing; wake up in the shower, only to  discover that the last 9 months have just been a dream?

My apologies to you younger readers if you don’t know what the hell I’m on about (ask your mother)  but the performances produced by this team are starting to mess with my head.

Newcastle don’t beat Man Utd.  Newcastle don’t win at Chelsea, Newcastle don’t have world class players, but guess what, this season we do

Yes last night’s goals were unbelievable but there was so much more to admire about the 100 minutes of football.

How about yet another clean sheet , this time against the team who have just beaten Barcelona?
How about the tireless work ethic from every player on the pitch?
How about Alan Pardew learning from the weekend’s disaster and having the sense to adapt his tactics to win this game?

This team has simply been magnificent. They have given us more moments to savour in the last 9 months that we’ve probably had in the last 7 years.

I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that the list of wonder goals now goes into double figures.

So regardless of what the result is on Sunday afternoon, at the final whistle 50,000 people should rise to their feet to acclaim a bunch of men who have put this club back on the footballing map.
