Spanish eyes admire Newcastle’s Geordie backbone

6 years ago

Sitting with a warm glow watching the Chelsea match in my home in Spain, I realised something that to my knowledge no one else had pointed out.

At the start of the second half we had 5 Geordies on the pitch at a cost of £0 in transfer money.

Four of these came through the Toon’s academy.

They are of course:

Paul Dummett

Jak Alnwick

Sammy Ameobi

Steven Taylor (born in London but his parents returned to north east only weeks later)

Jack Colback

Who said that the romance in football was dead. Still celebrating, off for a few San Migs and wind up some of the Chelsea supporters that live in the village, not bad for a Geordie boy from Heaton.

Keep up the good work.
