Any Newcastle Fans Forgot Father’s Day? We Can Save You!

7 years ago

I was on a stag do at York races yesterday and woke up this morning just happy when I realised I’d made it back home!

However, my next thought was that in my excitement of going away on a jolly with the lads, I’d forgotten it was Father’s Day today….

So I had to get myself down to the corner shop and deliberate on whether my dad would like a packet of biscuits, a loaf of bread or some headache tablets. I’m not going to tell you what I got him as it might spoil the surprise if he happened to read this but I can reveal that I did buy some headache tablets for my hangover!

However, if you’ve forgotten about Father’s Day then we can save you from having to decide between a loaf of bread or packet of biscuits for your dear old dad.

The magazine coming out every month apart from July. Of course, just as dogs aren’t only for Christmas, Mag Subscriptions aren’t only for Dads.

As the saying goes, you would get less for murder!

However, after twenty years Steve Harper has come to the end of his playing journey at St.James’ Park.

Luckily we managed to catch Steve for a final and exclusive interview which in many ways encapsulates why we follow football and in particular, Newcastle United.

As Steve says; “Young Players Have To Realise What A Privilege It Is To Play For Newcastle United”.

You saw the long serving keeper’s emotions on that final match day and this interview has an intense love of Newcastle United and everything it stands for, running all the way through.

Steve explains his battle with depression, how he rates Shay Given & Tim Krul, what playing for Newcastle United should really mean for players and also picks his best ever eleven players that he played with in black & white.

A must read in our Summer Special issue of The Mag.
