The last two weeks have been a fantastic demonstration of how horrendously up themselves the Gerodies are. Even worse than liverpool..and thats saying something
how many times have i had to slam the radio off when some droning geordie idiot comes on going on and on and on and on and on and on………………
Now they have the biggest clueless windbag "manager" at the helm
a marriage made in heaven
and a bloody good laugh for the rest of usJanuary 16, 2008 at 17:03 #135757FriggoMember

Clivex, enlighten me- in this magical world you inhabit, is there anything that is even worth spitting on north of good old Landan Taaaaahn?
Anyway, back on topic- I couldn’t help but laugh when I heard he had left his coaching school in Glasgow- "Soccer Circus"- in order to take the job. That’s right, Kevin Keegan left a Soccer Circus to join Newcastle! Talk about a sideways career move!January 16, 2008 at 17:08 #135758
Nothing to do with geography

If it’s a fairytale, it’s probably called ‘The Managers New Clothes’.

So I take it you’ve met every single Goerdie then to make this judgement
I’m not even a geordie, and I’m offended

I only started going up to Northumberland a few years ago having spent most of my life in the Midlands, Cornwall and Lancashire, and I’ve never come across such warm hearted kind easy going people anywhere. I may even start going to St.James Park again, I think this is one of the best things to have happened in football for a long time and I really hope he succeeds! May actually show people that the beautiful game is as much about pride and loyalty as it is about money…January 17, 2008 at 13:51 #135960AlchemistParticipant

And your point in relation to Geordies being up themselves is…….
….or has this thread took on a different angle now Clivex
I’m only messing with you mate, I take your point about Keegan, but unless you have spent some considerable time living in the North East (especially when he was in charge last time), then you could never imagine how much he is liked up here.
He used to have a house on Sir John Hall’s estate (Wynyard) which is 2 miles away from me, and he used to visit the same pub/betting shop as me, which is why I have met him many times. He would come into the pub with about 4 or 5 people in, and within half an hour the pub was packed lol. This pub is 30 miles from Newcastle and in the main, full of Boro supporters – but the respect and attention Keegan generated was immense.
Away from football he really is a nice man – and as I’ve said on another thread, his passion is immense.
I totally agree with his track record being questionable, after all he has walked away from every club or country he has ever managed. But for at least this season and next, Newcastle will get a lot of fun out of him and I think it will be good for football in general.
Some cracking quotes there by the way, really brought a smile to my face

I have compiled a top 8 list of most delusional fans in Britian.
1) Manchester City
2) West Ham
3) Birmingham City
5) Any England supporter
6) Wolverhampton Wanderers
A very pleasing list.January 17, 2008 at 15:04 #135982Gazs Way De SolzenMember

I dont really understand what people have against Newcastle fans. I myself am not deluded in anyway, i dont really expect a trophy anytime soon, i just want to see my team playing near their ability and actually having a go at teams rather than going to teams like Derby and Wigan, and clinging on for a draw.
I think people see ‘fans’ on programs like Sky Sports News and then tar the rest of the proper fans with the same brush. I personally get a bit annoyed with how much people slate Newcastle fans (myself included there) and i am just meant to let people say what they like about Newcastle fans and myself.
