The Newcastle Fans With Glasses That Are Always Overflowing

8 years ago

There is a strange phenomenon I keep coming across at the moment.

I find it happening occasionally when I’m in my local and chatting with the regulars, I’ve also seen instances of it breaking out on The Mag website.

It goes something like this – I’ll say (or somebody will write on the site) something like;

‘What a nightmare, we’re the only club in the Premier League not to sign a player yet’, or ‘Shola’a bloody useless, surely this summer we’ll get rid of him’ – he’s only scored three league goals in the last 2 season?

Somebody will then pipe up with;

‘Rubbish, these deals take time to get ever the line’, or ‘What are you talking about man he’s class, he’s a Geordie, always scores against the mackems’

Basically, any of the (many) negative or bizarre things you might point out about Newcastle United at the moment, there will be somebody somewhere willing to swear black is white, or black & white is white & black…or whatever.

‘What is Mike Ashley playing at’? is met by;

‘Hey man, without Ashley we could have been another Portsmouth, Rangers, Darlington…’

‘This is crazy, we don’t hear anything for weeks from Pardew once Kinnear appears, then the moment JFK goes on his ‘pre-arranged’ holiday’, Pards is straight back in and talking about anything and everything’ is countered with;

‘Everybody goes on holiday and its just coincidence like and Joe said Alan was over the moon he’d came in as his boss…’

‘Bloody ridiculous, not scoring from a corner in the league for nearly 2 years now!’ brings out;

‘How can we expect to score man, as Alan Pardew says, until we get a couple of nine footers its impossible’

‘It is mental having a manager who has no say on transfers and has next to no power’

‘We’re all Europeans now man, it’s all the rage ower there you know’

‘Things are desperate up front, what if owt happens to Cisse?’ answered with;

‘Young Campbell (never started PL match or scored a goal yet) is coming through and Shola always scores against the mackems…’

….and so on.
