Newcastle United – The England Connection

10 years ago

Newcastle United and England haven’t always been a perfect fit, with many instances down the years where many Tyneside based footballers felt hard done by when it came to the national side’s selection policy, the southern based manager/officialdom seemingly believing Newcastle was in another country.

Maybe one of the worst instances down the years was Jackie Milburn, winning only a handful of caps when his talent deserved so much more.

However, there have been a decent number of more recent cases where living so far north hasn’t proved so much of a barrier – the Keegan era in particular seeing a number of players also featuring in the England team/squad, such as Howey, Venison, Shearer, Lee, and Ferdinand.

Two of the most famous modern day Geordies that have played a big part in England’s near misses of the nineties are Alan Shearer and Paul Gascoigne.

This week we are looking at various angles that tie NUFC together with England and we have items featuring Gazza and Shearer in the latest Mag Auctions of classic Newcastle United memorabilia, plus many other items featuring the likes of Chris Waddle and Sir Bobby Robson.

Each Sunday a new batch of NUFC collectables are made available on eBay with prices starting from as low as 99p.

With a deep love of United’s history and the classic memorabilia and programmes that are a big part of that, we have always intended to bring you our very own auctions.

Delving into Newcastle’s extraordinary history, each week we will be putting a number of items up for auction via eBbay, with prices starting from as a little as 99p.

Not everybody will want to bid on the items but we are sure that the range of items will provoke interest and debate, plus the memories flooding back.

It costs nothing to look and with the auctions lasting for a week you have plenty of time to keep an eye and bid at any time over the 7 days, potentially picking up a real bargain.

Every week a selection including programmes, magazines, tickets, trading cards and clothing CLICK HERE to visit.
