  1. We are playing Liverpool soon , can I ask the traveling fans to stop singing the same old tired out songs about Liverpool slums , feeding scousers, and the stealing of stereo’s, please give it a rest, it might of been funny 25. 30 years ago ? instead support NUFC, that’s what your there for, have a little bit of respect for a city that is very similar to Newcastle ,ie working class ,


  2. Newcastle TAKEOVER just more of ASHLEY’S bull**** and lies as usual.
