Newcastle United Make Headlines For All The Wrong Reasons

9 years ago

Depressing to say the least, to see half the headlines this morning relating to Newcastle United’s tame surrender to the mackems on the pitch, then the other half of the headlines devoted to the trouble in the city centre after the match.

For all of us who love our city as much as the football club, it makes you feel physically sick to see people who would claim to feel the same way, smashing the place up and putting on an embarrassing show for national TV.

When the riots kicked off in 2011, I was proud and relieved that while the troubles spread from London to Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool, we didn’t see residents of Tyneside causing misery for their fellow Geordies and desecrating their own city.

While the players have the opportunity to start to try and put things right next weekend against West Brom, we will no doubt be treated to hundreds of mugshots in the local press as police track down those who had their fifteen minutes of fame in front of the police cameras after the match.

Sunday was not exactly the greatest day for saying to both prospective signings and normal punters; ‘Come To Newcastle, It’s Great!”
