Newcastle United have their own very special minority of ‘whacky’ fans, happy to gurn in front of any passing TV camera and/or to wear anything an deverything to get themselves noticed.

That is all very well but is there any need for the club to encourage it!!

I was tipped off by a mate to the pictured item which is apparently called a ‘Second Skin’ in the club shop, if I woke up on Christmas morning and found this monstrosity under the tree, the wife would have more on her mind than where to get herself a second skin.

At least at home matches with everybody around me a season ticket holder I’m pretty safe from jokers wearing stuff like that but I’ve already got a headache thinking about the next away trip to Wigan!

If you would like to feature like Dean on our/your website, get writing.
