Issue 137 – September 2000
The Kenny Dalgish legacy at Newcastle United might not be a very big book but one definite positive was the signing of Shay Given, undoubtedly the best United keeper of the modern era.
An immense figure at the club, The Mag interviewed him as he was in the process of successfully wrestling the number one shirt permanently away from Steve Harper.
Read the thoughts of all our top columnists such as Sweet Left Foot, Magpie Moments and Spirit Of ’69, as well as the latest instalment of Billy Furious’ World Tour, dropping in on a few Newcastle fans in Australia this issue.
This issue also carries excellent interviews with our ‘local rivals’ as we find out what the Mackem and Smoggie fans make of how the Toon are doing.
An excellent issue featuring an interview with Geordie running legend Mark Allison, AKA ‘Run Geordie Run’. What was it like running across America in 100 days with the only thing keeping you going, trying to think of your best/worst/ginger Newcastle United elevens!
Also this time of course, we have our exclusive match report and feedback from (yet!) another win down in mackemland.
