I’m all for season ticket holders having as many benefits as possible (especially when it comes to the team winning matches!) but I do find it unacceptable that if you are only able to go to just an odd match, you have to pay an extra £25 for membership.
Of course a Newcastle shirt is entirely forgiveable, especially today, as Newcastle Jets away kit this season is black and white stripes. This is pretty cute of them, perhaps we should adopt this Newcastle as some kind of holiday home for recuperating, or wayward, squad members.
I hope Cheick takes heart from his contribution and his obvious courage and self-belief, unlike Arsenal’s cowardly Gervinho who maybe appropriately missed the fatal 9th Ivory Coast penalty, the bottler waiting until there was only the keeper and one other outfield player as well as him.
