The best Newcastle game I never saw

6 years ago

Howay then Newcastle fans.

What is your best, worst, funniest Toon memory, at the game, watching the game, before or after the game?

My best/worst memory of recent times is a game I never saw….

The Newcastle 4 Arsenal 4 game at home.

Car conked out and we got the parts and fitted, but only by about half an hour before kick-off.

At that time we didn’t think it would be worth setting off and maybe get the second half (we live an hour from SJP).

After  I’d had a shower and changed, we had a nightmare finding a stream to watch the match, by the time we’d got one we were losing 3-0 and I am thinking this can’t be right, must be highlights of another game!

At 4-0 down I stopped watching, I was incensed! Half of me was pleased the car had broken down.

So the bairn continued to watch, a proper diehard supporter, and we started to pull it back!

Then the Tiote screamer, 4-4 and he was going bananas!

I missed one of our best games from an (in the flesh) watching point of view, in many a year, but the game sticks in my memory as a positive memory (the comeback) and as a negative memory (not going and 4-0 halftime).

What is your standout memory of the last few years, positive and negative?
