Maybe Arsenal fans would like to walk a mile or two in our shoes

The year before I was born, Newcastle won the FA Cup for the third time in five years, a hugely celebrated and proud era in the life of our Club.

In 2017, Arsenal won the FA Cup for the third time in four years

However, that was with a large number of Arsenal fans hugely disappointed at underachieving during this era in the life of their Club.

In 1969, our team Newcastle United won their last major trophy, the Inter Cities Fairs Cup, with those members of our team and our Manager Joe Harvey remaining heroes until this day.

Arsenal won the Fairs Cup the year after us in 1970.

Whilst that is only one of two European Trophies that Arsenal have won, the Gunners also played in the Champions League for 19 consecutive seasons (including reaching one final), with only Real Madrid bettering that.

Tonight, many Arsenal fans are disappointed to be playing AC Milan in the Europa League Round of 16.

With may of them wanting to see the back of their Manager.

Whereas, we would roll the red carpet out for ours, even with only the prospect of a relegation battle against Southampton on Saturday.
