#bring back the scarves...

By Lee Ryder on Aug 21, 11 08:39 PM


Newcastle United fans have not finished celebrating the fantastic 1-0 derby win over Sunderland yet - but they are already planning how to help extend the Toon's great start to the season in the home game with Fulham.


Of course there's the potential banana skin trip to Scunthorpe first, but the concept of filling St James' Park with scarves in the style of Alan Shearer's testimonial has got fans excited via the social networking tool Twitter over the weekend.


Anybody who was at Shearer's big night back in May 2006 will never forget just what an occasion it was and how effective the operation can be.


:thup:That night St James' Park was jumping and afterwards I remember interviewing players who were simply taken aback by the atmosphere and the flag swirling.


Les Ferdinand said at the time "Do that every other week and it will frighten the life out of the opposition", while Peter Ramage was almost lost for words having played in the game.


There's no doubt the current crop of players would also love to see St James' Park in full swing when Fulham visit Tyneside - can the Cottagers also be blown away by the scarves?


Of course there are many fans that are still concerned/angry/confused about how the club is being run and many have valid concerns too.


Yet in the home game with Arsenal and the away game at Sunderland the backing to the team has been 100% so far - something not lost on new players at the club such as Yohan Cabaye who commented he'd seen "nothing like this" in his football career so far.


Nobody is attempting to paper over any cracks here given what has been a questionable summer when it comes to transfers but when the volume of Tweets and emails has been like it has, it's impossible to ignore.


The club are now aware of #bringbackthescarves and it will be interesting to see how it pans out over the week...


Watch this space.

It'll never work unless the club provide the scarves to all the fans like they did for that game, and that'll probably not happen again after thieving kunts started trying to steal boxes of the scarves off the folks giving them out.
