I am a new poster who came across your site yesterday whilst looking at the excellent www.newsnow.co.uk site which collates newspaper stories about nufc.
I am a long time (suffering) toon fan who has like everyone else become addicted to the rollercoaster that supporting Newcastle is.
Ever since 1974--5 season when Supermac and John Tudor played up front, I have been hooked. I remember sitting in front of the TV for the 74 FA Cup Final trying to spot my dad in the crowd.
I have experienced the lows of relegations and players like Bobby Shinton,to the highs of beating Barcelona in the Champions League.
Whatever happens, you can never say life is boring watching Newcastle.
I am 45 (hence 67 in my username!!) and live in Newcastle, and look forward to some intelligent posts and debate and some 'canny crack' on here.
I will try and filter out the rubbish when it comes to transfer talk - don't believe the press. The local paper sells because of the rumours it prints on the back. The national press do not like us and keep trying to flog our star assets. The owner, Mr Ashley is a shrewd businessman who keeps his mouth shut when it comes to business dealings including transfers.
Looking forward to 'meeting' you
