Best å dra til Newcastle ifølge Observer
« på: 12. Aug. 2007, 19:15 »
What's it like?
Full of half-nude Geordies with moobs.  Brilliant cathedral-like ground looming over the city, all stands enclosed with distinct, slightly uneven stands.  Features the largest cantilevered structure in Europe for the beardies to admire, and its still full of character.

And the away end?
The sky.  It's up 14 flights of stairs at the top of the St John Hall Stand.  Room for 3,000.  Great views of the city, but you're a long way from the pitch - shirt numbers can be a blur.  Good acoustics, though, and the legroom  and steepness of the tier are perfect.

To Eat...Football's famous chicken balti pie?
Yes, plus the usuals in all branded Toon packaging, served in big concourses full of plasma screens.  Decent facilities.

Where to drink?
There's beer in the ground, but there's no reason to drink there when the billions of pubs and bars in town are a short walk away.  Most away fans tend to congregate near the station.

Make a weekend of it - the best local attractions
Saturday night in the Bigg Market.  Marvel as semi-naked youths pub-crawl in deep midwinter.  Or for a more sedate trip, stay in Whitley Bay.

Best home fans chant
"Me brother's in Borstal, me sister's got pox, me mother's a hooker down Hartlepool docks, me aunty got murdered, me uncle went mad, and Jack the Ripper's me dad. Lalalalalalalalalalala TOON!"  Must say I've never heard that one

In local pub row, don't insult...
Shearer's not boring on TV, Peter Beardsley isn't ugly and Gazza's not mad.

Overall trip rating
9.  Doesn't get much better than this.  Massive ground, city-centre location, huge range of pubs and usually ultra-friendly, in a non-cheesy way.  It's a must-visit.


The list in full...

Newcastle - 9
Everton & Villa - 8
Villa, Portsmouth, mackems, West Ham, Spurs, Birmingham - 7
Man Utd & Arsenal - 6
Bolton, Chelsea, Liverpool, Reading - 5
Blackburn & Man City - 4
Wigan & Derby - 3
smogs - 1

"Ler og godtar meg over dei er inne som er forbanna på Ashley og Co. No gidde eg ikkje innpå denne tråden meir og lese om alle som meinar Ashley er verdens mest gnitne person, kor KATASTROFE denne sommaren har vore, kor REVVA klubben verte styrt."

Haha, ville likt å sett begrunnelsen til Middlesbrough! Tenk å få 1 poeng, da har man gjort det.

Den der har jeg aldri før verken hørt eller sett noe sted. Noen som kjenner til den?

Genial tekst, ihvertfall.
Aw went to Blaydon Races, 'twas on the ninth of Joon,
Eiteen hundred an' sixty-two, on a summer's efternoon

Tror det er samme melodi som "For vi er de beste, de beste det er oss etc etc" vet ikke om melodien faktisk kommer fra en ordentlig sang.
