120 years its been called St James' park and it always will be St James' Park to me.

Its not all bad.

As part of the sponsorship deal, season tocket holders are to receive a free keyring with a pair of little dangly plastic trainers on.

Rafa gone, I'm gutted. Best manager we've had for yonks and the fat cockney bastard in charge has forced him out. 

I was never away Andrew, i just didn't have the heart to post on this happy site when i was so sad. I did read all about you seeing that Bruce fella, i loved it mate. Newcastle are indeed st

I can't believe this Ashley bloke. Just when it seems things are dying down for him he goes and kicks the hornets nest again. What a dick.

As for the name, it's disappointing but I'm not that bothered as long as we pick up 9 points from our next 3 games :unsure:

A bit fitting really that The Greed Stadium will be used for the first time against the club that started to spoil football with money, Chelski.

Its started circa 1992. United and liverpool atleast used their revenue. Blackburn were the first cash heavy team.

It would've been more impressive if all the footage hadn't been black & white though :P:P:P

I think it's about time you Johnny's had a bit education.

Newcastle is The Toon - it cannot be referenced as just Toon. People who come from The Toon are Geordies. Geordies are people who worship in The Toon. Therefore, everyone who comes from The Toon is a Geordie, but not all Geordies come from The Toon. The patron saint of The Toon is St James. The devil's first name is Mike.

I gotta admit I'm a little confused now.

Another example of modern football that is sickening but the general public still think the way the game is going is all great.

That's the problem, the genie escaped the bottle the thick end of 20 years ago.

Too late now........

Watching Soccer Saturday and they couldn't believe the linesmans flag was raised indicating a bad foul. They said as the referee walked over to him that the decision would be ruled out.Wrong!

Well done Newcastle but, Man City can be happier now.

I was looking straight at it as it was right in front of me in the stretford end. At the time I couldn't work out what the linesman was doing over ruling the ref who gave a corner. And why did the ref let the linesman over rule him? After watching it on TV since, i still have no idea. The most baffling penalty decision I have ever seen.

I agree that is wasn't a penalty, but the most baffling penalty decision ever? Maybe against United, but I've seen them much worse. Not sure it even was the worst penalty-decision of the day, as both Wigan's and especially Tottenham's penalties were very dubious.

Its laughable that the Sunday papers are screaming about this decision maybe handing the title to City, it's not even December yet. If City win the title it will have far more to do with a certain 1-6 scoreline than with one dodgy penalty.

I guess the question now is whether the FA will suspend Ferguson after his comments about the officiating, and if so, for how long. If they do suspend him, will it be another one where he's up in the stands, running the team -- the difference being a few yards between the stands and the sideline. The rules don't say you can be critical if it's a bad decision -- they say you just can't do that.

I mean seriously, how many times can he be warned about this and never really face a serious penalty for his behavior? I guess we will see what happens -- if he gets another joke penalty, I think it will be pretty obvious that Sir Alex has no fear of anything the FA might do to him -- whether anyone will ever admit that or not. He is simply seen as bigger than the game.
