Expect the unexpected they say. From Yohan Kebab to YouTube signings – life as a part of the Toon Army can be… strange.
It’s difficult to find the appropriate superlative to describe what it’s like supporting Newcastle United. ‘Gold is refined in the fire’, they say – well, Newcastle United fans are solid gold then, because there has been fire and a lot of it.
Having said that, fire produces quality characteristics and one of those is loyalty. For those of the Geordie nation who have been around a few years, no doubt, your loyalty has been tested. I’d suggest that if any potential spouse were to question your loyalty, just point them to your track record as a Newcastle United fan.
‘If I can love a club that’s been relegated twice in the last 11 years, that has consistently disappointed me and let me down, changed it’s home name and hasn’t aged well; then I can love you no matter what.’ – should be your response. If this doesn’t work ladies and gentlemen, then, no one can help you.
So, without further ado, here are a list of 20 song/movie titles provided by the fans that best describe what it is like to support this wonderful club.
1. Groundhog day – Harold Ramis.
2. The Long and Winding Road – The Beatles
3. Apocalypse Now – Francis Ford Coppola
4. Misery – Rob Reiner
5. Bad Romance – Lady Gaga
6. Road to hell – Albert Pyun
7. The NeverEnding Story – Wolfgang Petersen
8. Let it go – Frozen theme song
9. I’m not dead, just floating – Pink
10. Bitter Sweet Symphony – The Verve
11. Titanic – James Cameron
12. Ain’t that a kick in the head – Deana Martin
13. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly – Sergio Leone
14. The NeverEnding story – Michael Ende
15. The Dictator – Larry Charles
