But it shouldn’t be forgotten that Newcastle United has a very a rich history that us fans can be proud of regardless of age, birthplace or geographic location.
Sometimes it can get lost on us, especially on some of our younger fans. I’ll include myself in that as my life supporting NUFC has encompassed more than just the last spell we had in the second tier of English football, although to be fair I have also seen us beating the likes of Barcelona as well.
This is why it’s always nice to be able to dig up some things from the past, and thanks to the Evening Chronicle I have been able to do just that. Have a listen….
This record dates back to 1974 although it wasn’t released until 1976 when Newcastle reached the League Cup final, although unfortunately the team were unable to bring home the cup as they lost 2-1 against Manchester City, with Newcastle born Dennis Tueart scoring the winning goal thanks (yeah thanks, tosser) to a spectacular overhead kick.
Anyway, I just thought that some of you may like this blast from the past. They simply don’t make music like this anymore.
Whether that’s a good or bad thing is open for debate though.
