No matter how much they try to put us down as being irrelevant, everybody seems to have an opinion on Newcastle United.

It might not always be positive but everybody wants to have their say on what happens at our club.

I was pointed towards an article on the Dartford and Swanley News Shopper website and sure enough Newcastle United get an honourable mention.

newcastle united fameSo what made us so news worthy to this influential website?

Well for some unexplained reason, one of their journalists on the ‘Top 5 Biggest Sporting Losers’ – I think you are getting the idea now…

They did it in the form of a countdown and if it is any consolation we are up there with soem other famous names;

5th Stirling Moss – ‘Greatest driver never to win a Formula One World title’

4th Tim Henman – ‘Never won a Grand Slam or even got to a final’

3rd Colin Montgomerie – ‘One of best golfers never to win one of top 4 competitions’

2nd Jimmy White – ‘Lost in six World Championship finals’

1st Newcastle United ‘A string of ridiculous signings on the pitch and in the dugout have seen the Magpies flounder in a constant state of mediocrity despite spending hundreds of millions of pounds for two decades.

With a comical owner and a badly behaved manager, Newcastle are showing no sign of halting the trend of under-achievement or winning their first major trophy since 1955. An easy choice for top spot.’

Just watch out though Dartford and Swanley News Shopper, you’ll be laughing on the other side of your face one day…possibly.
