A rare treat from the olden days.

Most of the talk these days tends to be about our current crop of players, which is understandable I guess.

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.

  1. Aye I played against Paul Cannell at school….later famous for dropping his shorts when a bad decision was given against him when he was playing in America. Barton got it from him 😆


  2. Read the spainish article.
    What I get from him is he’s more than “ok” in Newcastle as he loves the fans support and enjoys his place with his teammates.
    His biggest concern is that fact that the squad is so thin. He said it’s difficult to press up the table when there aren’t suitable replacements within the squad if important players get injured. He really stresses that it’s about more than just Carroll.
    I think he also really really wants to play for Spain and he feels he may need champions league footy to do that. It was more of a cry out to the spainish squad than anything else. I think if he got into the squad it would help us in keeping him, but good players have to be brought in in the summer or he will go.
    Good thing is that he sounds very ambitious and that his decision will be more about winning trophies than getting more money. If we invest well in the squad we may still keep him. But he said he’s not closing any doors.


  3. Jez they dont make music like that anymore 😆 thank **** 😀

    JG I think if we invest properly we will have a better chance of keeping our top players.
    And no matter what anyone says I cant believe that the fat controller cant see that with a few quality players we could challenge for european footie, which would make the club a lot easier to sell which in his eyes must be a good thing.


  4. Big Dave I agree but with the relative success with not much investment will that make him think he won’t have to do much? I guess it all depends on his ambitions.
