Newcastle United Welcomes Delia

8 years ago

We’ve had to put up with a few embarrassing moments in our time as Newcastle fans.

Bowyer and Dyer having a punch up on the pitch, Keegan’s “I’d love it if we beat them” pointy figure episode, some spectacular fan interviews, demonstrations & tears and Joe Kinnear’s “which one of you is Simon Bird” rant.

In fact, Joe Kinnear’s whole time in charge was embarrassing. As a player, I watched the girlfriend of one of my team-mates run onto a pitch to berate an opponent who had just kicked her boyfriend, something he has never lived down.

And what about Norwich? Over to you Delia: “A message for the best football supporters in the world. We need a 12th man here. Where are you? Where are you? Let’s be ’avin’ you. Come on.”

Well at SJP this month “the best football supporters in the world” are here with their team Norwich City. Come on? More like a-ha!
