Her with the beehive out of the B52’s used to work in the coach and horses on wallsend high street. 
“Love Shack” could be the new Saudi walk out song

Wish Local Hero would play the whole way through, tends to get cut off now due to that shite PL theme which has to be played and our nonce of an announcer who reads the team out for a second time in 15 minutes before kick off. Let it play man.

You do know Mark Knopfler was born in Glasgow 😳

 

Of course i do. Born in Glasgow and brought up in Newcastle and is very much a Geordie. Can think of at least 5 of his songs which reference Newcastle the Tyne and surrounding areas like Whitley Bay, Cullercoats etc. 

 

Tunnel of Love, Sailing to Philadelphia, Why Aye Man and Southbound again which is about leaving Newcaslte by train. Down to the Waterline imagines the Quayside. There is a good YouTube clip of him and Brian Johnson back in Newcastle a couple of years ago.

Some Mark Knopfler Geordie magic that's what it is. I know it was written for a film set in Scotland but it just connects so well with NUFC and the local area. How anyone cannot get it is beyond me.

 

 

 

Was queuing on the Central Motorway, ready to start the Great North Run last month and Local Hero came on. Tears instantly in the eyes. :lol:

I remember causing quite a stir in the row of the East Stand I used to sit in when I revealed to all around me his Scottish origins. The phones all came out to check the validity of my claim. The Wifi signal was awful as usual and they were all getting frustrated.

They deserve their tickets back more than any other. Apart from Rafa and a select few others, these really have been the shining light of NUFC in the Ashley era.

 

Good on them for taking a stand too, when the trust perhaps didn't. Will always have my respect, as speaking from personal experience it wasn't easy. Top work @Heron and all the others involved. Fucking class.

Cheers mate, really appreciate it!

Harsh. :lol: But I agree with everything else.
